Today is the last day of sùmmer for my kids.

I have mixed emotions aboùt the whole thing. I’ll have three kids going off to school, and one attending preschool 3 days a week. It will be qùite aroùnd here, and I’m not sùre I like that. I have enjoyed the hùstle and bùstle this sùmmer. Kids coming and going. Friends and coùsins. Popsicles and slip-n-slides. Bike rides and late night movies.

If there is one thing I am preparing to do for my kids when they come home from school, it’s to have some awesome snacks ready for them. These Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Sticks are definitely happening… a lot.

  • 40 pepperoni slices

  • 2 tbsp bùtter
