Goldfish in a Bowl

15 Nov

When I asked my older daughter what she wanted for dinner she told me she wanted “goldfish in a bowl”.  At first I told her no way, “goldfish in a bowl” isn’t dinner.  I had asked her earlier in the day so I had some time to think about how I could incorporate goldfish into her dinner.  I started thinking back to when I was a kid and one thing I loved to eat was tomato soup with goldfish.  My mom used to give us tomato soup and grilled cheese whenever we were sick or on a cold winter day.  So I decided that it would be something easy to do and the girls would enjoy.  They were so excited to have “fish” for dinner.  The LOVED it.

How to make it:

Tomato Soup (I used Whole Foods Roasted Tomato Basil), follow cooking instructions 

Pepperidge Farm Cheddar Goldfish made with Whole Grain (put as many in as you would like once the soup is in a bowl or cup, the girls had about 5)

Grilled Cheese (2 slices of italian bread, 2 pieces of American Cheese, slice of the outside of tomoato)

  • Butter slices of bread.  Add cheese.   Put bread together. This would be easy for your child to do on their own.
  • I used a nonstick pan, buttered first.  Put the sandwich on the pan.  Using a lid to a pot, I pressed down on the sandwich.  After about 1-2 min, I flipped it and repeated until cheese in middle was melted.
  • I cut the end of the tomato into a fish shape and used little pieces of cheese to make the eye and mouth.
Choose a veggie of choice to serve with it, if desired.  The girls snacked on some shortly before so we didn’t use any tonight.
Each had a cup of soup and 1/2 a grilled cheese sandwich.  There was nothing left when they were done. My oldest was asking for a “fish tomato” the rest of the night. Yummm!
