Come, sail away, come, sail away...
Inspired by a friend's idea of making tuna melt boats for her children, a lack of sandwich bread and Kraft singles, and the necessity of something toasty and cheesy to complement our tomato soup on a dreary day, I came up with these fun concoctions.
I sliced some Publix soft rolls in half, topped them with shredded cheddar and parmesan, and tossed them in the oven. (Make sure you sprikle the cheese liberally while they are on a non-stick baking sheet, because the extra that falls off will become crunchy, delicious little cheese straw thingys. Yummy!)
I told Jacob, "We're going to have cheese toast boats today!"
He replied, "They need sails!"
Of course! Why didn't I think of that?
So, we got out the craft supplies. Jacob colored the paper and then we cut it into little triangles and taped them to toothpicks. Voila. Instant "sails" for our cheese toast boats.
Bonus: it keeps little hands busy whilst Mommy fixes lunch.
Perfect for a rainy day. Thank you, local NPR station for reminding me of my favorite comfort food -- grilled cheese with tomato soup. Just like mom used to make!
