"Hello..... Haven't seen you in a while."


I have been getting reacquainted with some childhood foods. Having a one year old might do that to someone. Things like juice boxes, raisins, graham crackers, pbj sandwiches, applesauce cups, animal crackers, and apple juice. Some of those items I haven't had since who knows when. I remember drinking juice boxes when I was in Kindergarten. Graham crackers were a hot commodity when you are growing up with four younger siblings. Bananas are the worlds best fruit. Applesauce cups are great for a portable lunch. And Josh loves those raisins. He found a box of them in his diaper bag and helped himself. Another food that Josh loves is cheese. You should hear him when I get the cheese out. "Cheeeee!" He gets so excited. Cheese and Ritz Crackers make the best afternoon snack. What sort of "kid food" do you remember eating when you were a kid?

My favorite things were the little boxes of raisins and the little boxes of animal crackers.I loved them.I think because they were small and I felt so big having my own box!!

Velveeta cheese, pretzles, apple slices, and sliced bananas with a little milk and sugar. And Cheerios, of course. I had a little daughter who helped herself to those once upon a time.
