Bonus: Banana Pudding

Mash a banana in a freezable container and freeze overnight. Pack it in your lunchbox, and by lunchtime, you’ll have banana pudding. Fun!

    I’m glad you mentioned the microwave. My first thought was using the oven for a couple shells. If it’s hot where you are, like here in Portland, Oregon, you can even put the shells in the hot sun for a minute or two. That would be fun too. Can’t wait for dinner!
