There are many things that remind us of childhood. Homework, summer breaks, building forts, drinking Cool-aid, watching cartoons, playing outside with our friends, sledding, and other activities may bring back memories. Most of us can identify with those experiences. However, my fondest memories are of lunch.
Yes, lunch. Actually, the dessert after lunch. I was allowed to pick my own dessert and I had many favorites. No, my mom didn't really bake that much.
After lunch, I would go to the snack cabinet to mull over my options: ho hos, zingers, ding dongs, suzy q's, twinkies, oatmeal cream pies, cupcakes, donettes (mini donuts), fruit pies, fudge brownies, nutty bars, and star cruches. We didn't care for snowballs in our house, so they weren't an option. The decision required great deliberation. Often, whether a snack was the last one in its box was also a major factor--and if my brother wanted the last one, of course, then I wanted it too. There is nothing better than one of these sweet snacks with a tall cold glass of milk. Now you understand my profound inspiration for this cache series.
