2nd Grade Is SO Lucky

Yep, today is the day Monkey and I have been dreading since the 2nd week of June. Well, okay to be honest, by this morning, Monkey's dread had turned into excitement, which I knew it would and I am very thankful for. It is the first day of school, and for us that means the first day of 2nd grade. He got the teacher he wanted, has a new cool WWE backpack filled with everything off the school supply list, and an Avengers lunchbox carrying a lunch made with love by Mommy. I would say the kid is very prepared and ready to learn! In honor of this special day, I wanted to share a recipe I found on Pinterest that would be perfect for an extra special first day of school dinner, an appetizer at your next get together, or a fun dish for any kids' birthday party. These are super cute and super simple, both things I look for when choosing "kid friendly" dishes. I kept them simple with only 2 ingredients, but you could really make them your own by adding your favorite pizza toppings. I can't believe the school year is upon us once again, and while I'm sad Monkey won't be home every day with me, I'm incredibly happy he enjoys school so much and I adore the light in his eyes as he makes new discoveries. To watch him learn new things, his mind absorb every one of them and grow even more as a student is truly an honor and I am so blessed to be here to experience every single minute!

Pizza Rolls
2 (8 count each) crescent rolls
32-40 slices turkey pepperoni
8 string cheeses, each cut in half
1 (15 oz) can pizza sauce
Garlic Powder

Preheat oven to 375. Roll out each can of rolls and separate into triangles. At the wider end, add 4-5 pepperoni each, overlapping, depending on the size. Add a string cheese half on top of pepperoni. Roll from wide end to tip and tuck in sides as much as possible. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden browned. Serve with warm pizza sauce for dipping.
