Kids in the Kitchen- Friday's Fun Lunches

My 4 year old loves to help out in the kitchen.  My 2 year old won't eat anything but chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, and cereal.  (I'm only slightly exaggerating.) In attempt to have some fun with them and hopefully get my 2 year old to broaden his food horizons I decided that it's time to make an effort to have more fun in the kitchen so I'm starting "Kids in the Kitchen".  Basically I have a day diagnosed for a different meal, snack, or drink where we will make something fun and/or tasty together.  I may do something every single day or decide to do a couple a week, or one once a week- playing that part by ear.  Here is my plan:

Monday Morning Breakfast
Tuesday's Time for Snakc
Wednesday's Wonderful Dinners
Thirsty Thursday
Friday's Fun Lunches

Today is Friday and we made Waffle Grilled Cheese Sandwiches for lunch.  I couldn't get my 2 year old to eat more than a tiny bite (darn), but we had fun making them.
Here is what you need:
Waffle Iron
Miracle Whip (or Mustard)
Sliced Ham
Sliced Cheese

Then you make it just like you would a regular grilled cheese sandwich, but use a waffle iron instead or a frying pan or sandwich maker.

Here is our end result!
