Saw this “Sunflower Sundae” in a Family Fun magazine a long time ago and filed it away to do “one day”. Well, today was the day! After running across it recently, I put this together for dessert tonight. Mayfield Homemade Vanilla ice cream with a slice of pineapple on top – chocolate chips for the center of the flower. My green “sprig” was artificial but you could use mint leaves or something similar. This is a good example of how Pinterest helps keep ideas organized and close at hand. If Pinterest had been around when I found this, I would have pinned it for sure! A great idea for a party!
We always have a
“Back to School” Breakfast at our house on the first day of school. I found a few photos from the past couple of years. The decorations are usually created with things we already have and the girls new school supplies – the new backpacks on their chairs, the A and E from pencils, and their new lunch boxes. We usually have homemade waffles as a special treat!
Annie will be headed to a Multiple Needs (4th Grade) Class this year with her sweet teacher, Ms. Jamie and the paraprofessionals she loves, Ms. Erma and Ms. Sheila! Sprayberry is a very special school for some very special children!
Now we just have to get ready for this year’s
breakfast! Last year, when I posted pictures of our first day of school breakfast, I got a few comments from Moms who felt bad because they had pop-tarts for breakfast. Trust me, we have pop-tarts many days for breakfast. It’s just that, since kindergarten, this is our tradition. On the first day of kindergarten as we were rushing to get to TPS on time, Elle commented “everybody else we be late, too, because they were having a special breakfast!” I decided then this would become a tradition at our house!

My daughter commented that this would be a great meal to take to a friend. I agree – just one dish – add a bread and dessert! It’s also perfect for making as big or a small as you need it to be! Enjoy!
Paula Deen’s Cookbook for the Lunch Box Set is great for encouraging children to learn to cook. The photos are wonderful in helping gathering all the necessary ingredients and utensils.
Place the batter evenly in the Bundt pan and smooth the top. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until it appears set and the cake begins to pull away from the sides of the pan. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then take a butter knife and run it around the side of the pan. Invert the cake onto a wire rack to cool completely.
