Grilled Cheese Sandwich hearts in a muffin tin (#2)

carrot hearts, yogurt with pink sugar sprinkles, red grapes

I also made this on National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day. It's the same ingredients as the other lunch that I posted today but packed in a slightly different way using a regular muffin tin.

Here are some items used to make this lunch:

Grilled Cheese Sandwich Hearts - in a Muffin Tin Meal

heart shaped grilled cheese sandwiches, apple heart cutouts, 
carrot heart cutouts, yogurt with pink sprinkles, red grapes

This is another lunch that I made on National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day.  I haven't made a muffin tin meal in ages! Since we are at home for break I decided to revisit that fun way of serving lunch, plus it's the theme for Bento Blog Network this week - vote for me  ;) ;). I discovered that cutting a grilled cheese sandwich is pretty tricky. For this I used my flower shaped metal cutter to cut out the sandwich before grilling. Then I made 3 knife cuts to turn the flower into hearts. If you let the sandwich cool a bit it's much neater and cheese doesn't ooze out everywhere.

National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day - try grilled cheese on a stick!

Today is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day! In fact, that's just one part of National Grilled Cheese sandwich Month. Who knew there was a whole month devoted to the love of Grilled Cheese Sandwiches? They are yummy. So today the girls and I all had grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch.

This is Amy's Lunch

vanilla yogurt with pink sugar sprinkles

Amy is not really a cheese lover, except on pizza. I told her that a grilled cheese sandwich is sort of like the cheese melted on pizza without the sauce. She took a few bites but was not convinced. The rest of her lunch was made up of some of her favourites so she wasn't disappointed.  Don't you just love the heart long pick? I have seen lots of bloggers using them lately and I fell in love. I was so happy to receive a set that I had ordered from Bento USA yesterday that I just HAD to use one today. There are others in the set too. star, butterfly, and cute sayings like yum, so sweet, with <3.  

We are still at home for Spring Break so even though I used our Easy Lunch Boxes, this lunch was not packed and taken anywhere. If I was going to send it to school I would have used a lidded container for the yogurt so that it didn't make a mess. The peanut butter would have been fine and I would have still used the silicone cup.
