School's Out!

Today's the last day of school which means it's also the day to give teacher gifts. I had such a hard time deciding what to do because Clara and Clay's teachers have been SO great this year and I wanted to give them something special. I always love gift baskets, but I wanted to keep it on the healthier side (because I know teachers probably get lots of treats!) so I thought "How about a breakfast basket?" Our family LOVES breakfast (we would eat it for every meal) so I decided to put in some of our favorite breakfast foods.

* Trader Joe's buttermilk pancake mix
* Fresh and Easy honey and flax granola
* Fresh and Easy freshly squeezed orange juice
* Fresh and Easy Vermont maple syrup
* fresh strawberries
* napkins from Home Goods
* spatula
* tea towel from Ikea

Who wouldn't love that?

I changed my mind on my birthday present...instead of a book can you send me one of THOSE?! They look fantastic!! And delicious, and nutritious! I'm jealous of their teachers.
