Yesterday was a big day for our family, our oldest son, LP, headed off to Pre-K! And one fun fact for you, LP's Pre-K teacher is the same Pre-K teacher that his Dad, My Farmer, had twenty-six years ago!
He will have school every afternoon. A school van picks him up at our house before noon and then one of his favorite parts - he gets to ride the school bus on the way home. One of his friends, who is in an older grade, rides the same bus, so it sounds like they had a lot of fun playing together on the way home from school.

Other than first day of school photos before hopping on the bus, I don't remember too much more for first day traditions. But for our little guy I thought it'd be fun to let him to choose supper for the evening (which he chose pancakes and eggs) and to whip up some Easy Hot Fudge Sauce so we could have some ice cream sundaes for dessert. (I know, what a meal - pancakes, eggs and ice cream...)
Easy Hot Fudge Sauce
1 cup AE Dairy Heavy Whipping Cream
1 cup Sugar
2/3 cup Cocoa Powder, unsweetened
1 pinch Salt
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring, then remove from heat. Let sauce cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Makes 1 cup of sauce.
This is such a simple treat to make the next time you celebrate a special occasion, like the first day of school. It is creamy, rich, and tastes o' so good. Warning - once you start making homemade hot fudge sauce, you're family will always ask for it when you have ice cream ;)
