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.
