From January to April, I was a student teacher at a local elementary school.
In my last month of student teaching, I made a list of the many reasons that I was eager to finish:
- I will have time to blog again.
- I will have time for photography again.
- I will have time to run again.
- I will have time to bake again.
- I will have more time. Period.
One thing that I did like about student teaching was packing my lunch every day. Black bean enchiladas, one-pot Italian chicken, and baked sweet potatoes were frequent guests in my lunch box. Of course, an elementary school is incomplete without peanut butter. You better believe that I brought along this faithful food on a regular basis.
This month, I am featuring “It’s a Zoo.” This nutbutter has animal crackers and chocolate chips blended in! Elementary school can definitely be defined as a “zoo.” Some students are owls, peacefully acquiring wisdom. Other students are monkeys, hooting as they swing through the room. Still, other students are otters; they just want to have fun. Children who want to please everyone remind me of golden retrievers, and the competitive go-getters are roaring lions.
Since this is more of a “how-to” than a recipe, I wanted to do something a little different. I made a video! Check it out:
So my video skills have a long way to go, but I did have a lot of fun filming! I hope that you enjoy this back-to-school lunch idea!
- Blind Spot “It’s A Zoo” blended nutbutter
- Raisins (or any other fruit of your choice. I think that strawberries woul be delicious with this!)
- Spread nut butter onto tortilla
- Top with raisins
- Eat and enjoy!
