Cooking with Kyle-Grilled Turkey and Cheese

This week Kyle chose to make a healthy grilled cheese served with tomato soup.  We also had a mini watermelon that I bought yesterday for dessert.

I took him to the store to pick out which ingredients he wanted to use for his healthy grilled cheese.
He chose 100% whole grain bread, light miracle whip, calcium enriched margarine, 2% milk cheddar cheese, and a sharp cheddar cheese.

He also added a slice of sliced turkey breast to each sandwich. We just forgot to bring it out  in the first picture. By the time we realized it, he was already in the middle of cooking.

Using a cheese slicer, he sliced each of the cheeses into very thin slices.  He cut 4 of each kind for each sandwich.   We were not sure if it would be too much or not enough, but I thought it was the perfect amount when melted.

Before adding the cheese, he spread a little bit of light miracle whip on each of the slices of bread.

He had never made soup on his own before. I had to tell him how to make it.

He was really concentrating on stirring the soup.  He wanted to be sure to mix it very well.

He spread the margarine on the sandwiches before placing them in the skillet.  (the stain on his shirt was from  his pudding at lunch. Hopefully it will come out in the wash!)

I helped him flipped the first few, but he soon  got the hang of it on his own.  It was fun to see the excitement on his face.

He was having some trouble being serious in this picture.  His grilled cheese sandwiches  turned out perfectly.

Yummy cheesy goodness!!

A perfect dinner on a warm spring night!
