Last Day of School!

Today was my girl’s last day of school, and the first day (half day) of Summer Vacation! Whooo hooo! I like being able to sleep in if I’m tired, and they are looking forward to it too!  It’s going to be a full summer, full of ball games, driver’s education, Mom being a Taxi, Swimming, Cherry Festival and Disneyland. Who knows what else? These Eclairs are the last thing that I do, every year on the last day of school. I make them for my girl’s class, and for favorite teachers from their past grades. This year I only had to make 45! (In past years when my boys were in school too, I was making in the 90’s and 100’s)
I started this when my oldest son was in 1st grade, and it became a tradition. Hard to believe I’ve been making these for 17 years!  Dinner is French Bread, Gallo Salame, assorted cheeses, fruit, and an eclair for dessert… if anyone complains, I’ll bury their body in the backyard with the rest! LOL BIG HUGS, Steph

    Cheryl, (Photonut) If you see this, for some reason I can\’t get your blog to load!  I get that it\’s not responding. I had a question for you, if you were going to enter one of my flower pictures in a local county fair, which one would you enter? (I\’ll take opinions here people!) lol
    BIG HUGS, Steph

    OOO la la! These would make the mouth of a French Pastry Chef water! Not to mention add about 30 pounds to my backside! But I bet they are sooooo worth it!
     
    Mmmmmmmm! Where are you again? I\’ll be stopping by on my way back to France!

    Wow – a tradition.  I love traditions – I think thay are what some kids remember best.  This looks like a pretty good one.  Not like a nightly beating or something, although those, too, are memorable.   Sounds like a good summer.  I have never gotten over the expectation of having 2 and a half months off for summer.   It is yet one more reason to loath my job.  Thanks for the reminder.

    Hi,
    nice photos!
    OK…hold up there…my heart and Spirit are in Tucson.  Yeah…It is hot…that DRY heat, LOL. But I love it (however, I will admit I feel like I am being fried right now!!!!!!!!!!). Besides sentimental & Spiritual reasons, I can\’t take the cold anymore.
    Looks like you can cook too.
    Oh I found you from KT\’s comments.
    I like your space.
    Have a good weekend!
    Dawn

    OOOOoohhhhhhhh nice job on the eclairs, i just hate when you get them from a store and the pastry part or is too soft or too had, it\’s gotta be juuust right. I like custard in them, when i was little, i\’d be a brat and eat all the chocolate off and leave the rest there for someone else LOL

    E\’clairs rule. But did you know, Steph, that there are stores that SELL THOSE, ALREADY MADE?? (I apparently should have stopped by about 17 years ago; I could have saved you a BUTTload of time and energy.)
     
    Seriously. Those look delicious. But for some reason, the Powers That Be in Minnesota have decreed that No Homemade Treats Shall Cross the Threshold of a Public School. Ever. There\’s just something wrong  with bringing in a box of store-bought cupcakes, or handing out individual suckers for birthdays.
     
    I\’ve compromised. I buy a gallon of vanilla ice cream and a few liters of rootbeer and MAKE root beer floats. IN SCHOOL! NOT STORE-BOUGHT!
     
    I\’m quite the rebel.
