i cannot believe that we are back to school next week.  as much as i have loved the lazy days of summer, i am really excited for this year to get underway. i love having the kids home, and i love not having to be out of the house early every day, but i also love having a quiet house to work in.

teens are fun, but they can also be loud, busy, did i say loud, and stress inducing! so, my plan for the first week of school….relax, relax, read, bake,  and then relax some more.

i have my books lined up, my fridge is packed with tubs of noosa yoghurt and noosa mates perfect for relaxing afternoon snacks, and i’ll be baking more loaves of this healthy zucchini banana bread. even better, with the kids in school I won’t  have to share.

a slice of this bread, my favorite banana chocolate peanut noosa, and a good book are pretty much the best ways i could think of to spend a quiet kid free morning or afternoon.

noosa mates [3] are currently available at your neighborhood kroger stores, but soon will be in target and whole foods. not only are noosa mates perfect for a grab and go breakfast, i love them for a fast and easy lunch, and noosa mates make the best late afternoon snack or  dessert.
