Muffin Tin Mondays
I recently came across Muffin Tin Mondays at Her Cup Overfloweth. These aren't muffin tins, and its not Monday, but I was so inspired I just had to give it a try. Lucy and Julia loved their special 4th of July lunch - they are exhausted from staying up late to see fireworks last night, so they don't look too thrilled, but they really were. The basic idea is to serve lunch in a muffin tin in a creative way. There are different themes for each week, this week's theme was 4th of July so we served strawberries, blueberries, yogurt, and star bread with cream cheese and strawberry jelly on top. Other themes include shapes, numbers, and all sorts of fun things. Using a muffin tin allows you to give your child small amounts and even include something that he or she may not normally eat. Chances are, it might get eaten up just because its Muffin Tin Monday. I plan to get a couple small muffin tins next time I'm out and we'll give this a try every now and then. Go check it out, these ladies get very creative with their ideas. While you're there, check out this giveaway for some muffin cups! If you give Muffin Tin Monday a try be sure and let me know how it goes.
