Grilled Cheese Delight

Mural Meal: Choo Choo Grilled Cheese Train

A sucker for dairy products, my babe loves to take down a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. Instead of cutting it in half with a pickle in between, I like to add some commotion to the meal. And by that, I mean locomotion. Turn that cheese filled sammie into a train and that choo choos all the way to her tummy.

Cook up the cheesy classic and slice it into four squares. If you have a long plate or platter, set it out for a change of pace. Dice zucchini and cook it with a pat of butter and season with a dash of garlic salt. Once it's ready, turn the green veggie into wheels. Use sliced bananas to make a spread of sunlight above the train. Add some raisins to the engine cart as steam rises into the sky. Chop up a few carrots to connect the train cars. For their dipping pleasure, squirt a few dots of ranch dressing into the sky for clouds. For something sweet, toast some shredded coconut and place along the bottom of the train for the gravel path.

My son is going to love this as he's a train fanatic. It'd be a darling lunch for a kid's birthday party too.

I still remember the time my mom tried to make me a grilled cheese . . . and forgot to add the cheese. Sigh.

I totally FAIL as a mom. My kid is eating a regular grilled cheese cut up into uneven pieces as I type this. Oops.
