Monster Madness!

Cooking for Kids!

I love a good theme party! Thankfully for me, I have a gaggle of nieces and nephews so the theme parties are never in short supply! When I found out my niece was having a Monster High party for her 7th birthday, I had no idea what that was. At all. I had to stop what I was doing and Google it and I still didn’t really understand! Basically, I learned that it is a Saturday morning cartoon about monsters who go to high school. Ok Got it.

In addition to my pretty epic costume that I created, I thought we needed some theme food. I spent some time on Pinterest and found an image that inspired to make these fantastically fun “monster” sandwiches!

They were a hit and the birthday girl, Lili, who can be quite the picky eater, was more than excited that she got to have ‘more than one!’ Everyone had a blast picking out which ‘monster’ they wanted to eat!

I made half the sandwiches on white bread and half on wheat bread and opted for classic combinations of Ham & Swiss and Turkey & Cheddar. I served mayonnaise and mustard on the side so everyone could dress them how they like.

So next time you have picky eater on your hands or an event with a theme, think about making your food more fun! It’s sure be a hit of ‘Monster Proportions!’

My now addiction to Thermoworks thermometers started with the DOT. Having tried over versions of leave-in probe thermometers over the years I quickly learned that they don't even compare.
With flavors built around tuna season, this dish is deceivingly simple to make yet, produces an extremely sophisticated meal. A fresh, bright mixture of tomatoes & basil are mixed with briny capers that bring just enough salinity to bring to life the tuna's natural ocean flavor.
The best grilled chicken recipe is simple and foolproof! Combine boneless chicken breasts with herbs, lemon zest and garlic to perfect results every time.
