Young 'chefs' with an odd menu

Every now and then, it's a good idea to turn the kitchen over to the younger set. They like to get in there and mess around, and as long as no one gets burned or severs an artery, we're good.

Last night was declared kid chef night... proclaimed by the kid chefs. The menu: grilled cheese sandwiches with chicken noodle soup (from a can but dressed up with fresh herbs of the chef's choice) and quesadillas with, of all things, broccoli and cheese soup. The quesadillas were good (see recipe in What's Cooking Tonight), but weren't quite the right mix with the soup.

All in all, however, it was a fun effort. The kitchen wasn't trashed, everyone got enough to eat (especially the dog who snagged a piece of cheese after it fell from the slicer at an odd angle). Highly recommended.
