Let's be honest, nothing can take the sting out of the summer ending. As parents, we can’t make waking up early and going to school sound more appealing than rolling out of bed around lunch time and leisurely making your way to the pool.

I ate many a PB&J in my youth, but my favorite sandwich was a grilled cheese. It was warm and gooey, and not something I could take to school. It was special. My mom made them for me. My mom’s best friend made them for me. My aunt made them for me. I ate them all over Fort Wayne, Indiana, and I ranked them.
When I was growing up, cinnamon toast was a staple of my wholesome Midwestern childhood. My mom would make it for me as an occasional breakfast or more likely for a bedtime snack. Even now, as an adult making cinnamon toast for myself in my apartment overlooking San Francisco, when I bite into a warm, crunchy, sweet piece of cinnamon toast, I am transported back to Indiana in the 1980s.
