Kid's Corner: Pizza Sandwiches

Kenna has been so excited about cooking since we started Kid's Corner last week. I think I have created a mini foodie! For example:

On Saturday, Kenna was playing in the backyard in her little brother's baby pool. She came inside for some bowls and spoons. I didn't think anything of it.

She came inside about 30 minutes later and asked me to come out and see her "cooking show". Here, she was pretending to be a chef and was making a "candy soup" for her cooking show. She even showed me the wood post that was the t.v. camera. I loved seeing her exercise her imagination. :)

On with the recipe:

What you need:

4 slices of bread
spaghetti or pizza sauce
basil and garlic powder

Step 1: Butter each slice of bread.

Step 2: Place 2 pieces of bread, butter side down, in sandwich maker or frying pan.

Step 3: Spread pizza or spaghetti sauce on bread.

Step 4: Add cheese.

Step 5: Add sprinkle of basil and garlic powder.

Step 6: Put other piece of bread on top with butter side up.

Step 7: Close sandwich maker or have parent turn on burner.

Step 8: Cook until golden brown on both sides.

Step 9: Eat!
