Muffin Tin Monday

This is my first week participating in the Muffin Tin Monday carnival. I have often used a muffin tin for Eliza's meals and/or snack so when I stumbled upon Her Cup Overfloweth 's weekly muffin tin blog gathering I was psyched.

This week's theme: Choose Your Own Theme

I was inspired by the book Eating the Alphabet by Lois Ehlert and by the start of our garden. I decided to fill my muffin tin with only foods you can grow.

Here is the result...


The lineup included: carrots, cantaloupe, cucumber, tomatoes, strawberries and broccoli.


YUM!


There are no refills unless all cups are finished. Otherwise, Eliza would pack herself full of some food and not others. It usually works out really well! I have a zillion ideas and can't wait to come up with more fun muffin tin meals.

Hop on over to Her Cup Overfloweth for more great Muffin Tin ideas! There are some very creative moms and dads out there!

Here is just ONE example of a very creative parent. Last week's theme was literature. This mom came out with a Very Hungy Ctaerpillar Tin!

I wish my son ate enough that I could ever do a "no refills" policy! Actually, just this week I've started to say no to more juice, because he'd drink juice all day. And there is a box of cookies he likes to open, take one cookie out, take a small bite, and put back. Repeat with new cookie. So I do say, "No, you already have a cookie." If he ever finished a whole tin, though, wow, I'd be so excited I'd.. blog about it! Thanks for sharing your fun tin meal. :)
