A Wise Rainy Day Dinner

This post brought to you by Campbell's and BlogHer.
Sedona is one smart kid. She's always sharing little gems of wisdom, like "you should not scuba dive with sharks without a buddy". I mean, I totally thought swimming with sharks was an ideal alone time activity, but now I know better. Sometimes, she seems a little too wise for her (and my) own good. Like the day she told me, "popsicles do not have seeds in the middle, so they must be vegetables".

This is what I'm facing with dinner planning. It can be difficult to get kids to willingly eat dinner when they are utterly convinced a well balanced meal consists of a slice of cake, a cup of pudding and a popsicle. I know I'm not the only one facing this problem. Campbell's has been helping create tasty meals for 144 years and in the age of the internet, you can find a ton of great recipe ideas at Campbell's Kitchen. And now, Campbell's is helping satisfy even picky eaters with the help of the Wisest Kid in the Whole World. You can discover fabulous meal ideas kids will love and also share wisdom from a kid in your life.

We're having our first big cold front of the year move through today and that means we're ready for two things: hot chocolate and grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup. It also means our own wise kids are likely to talk Josh into activities like this:

My girls, who avoid tomatoes whenever possible, happily eat Campbell's tomato soup. It doesn't hurt that they get permission to dip their sandwiches. They also have a fun time cutting any sandwiches into shapes. On a rainy fall day like this one, some Halloween themed sandwiches are a perfect way to end the day.

Don't be afraid to branch out from standard cheddar or American cheese either. Sierra loves to look through the fridge and choose a variety of cheeses for her sandwich, the more the merrier!
