Grilled or toasted cheese sandwiches are one of Z's very favorites, so I couldn't let National Grilled Cheese Day pass by unobserved!
Grilled Cheese On A Stick - The Perfect Pair!

Z didn't want her sandwich cut up and skewered, so I just did it for Baby. I used some bride and groom stir sticks (with the bottoms snipped off to make them short enough to fit in the EasyLunchboxes) since the flexible plastic is safer for her, and I couldn't find any of my other skewers fast enough. This gluten-free bread was from a local bakery, and is always weird and deformed-looking, so these sandwich "squares" aren't very neat looking!
Z's Grilled Cheese "Cut Regalur!"

Since I don't have a grilly thing, and can't be trusted with the oven when I'm in a rush, I cooked these real quick in a frying pan. But the bread started charring before the cheese had even melted! Doh! So I microwaved them for 30-seconds to make the cheese melty, so Z wouldn't notice the vegan mozzarella shreds mixed in hers. Mission accomplished.
Since her lunch was kind of quick and plain, I let her choose a bento pick from my collection. She also decided she needed a spork (Target exclusive - spork and spoon set $3) to "scoop up the extra cheese." Oookay.
