Muffin Tin Monday - Pumpkin

I haven't posted a Muffin Tin Monday in a couple of weeks.  We've been eating them, they just aren't inspiring enough to take a photo of.  (The maple tree in my front yard however, totally inspiring.)

In honor of the pumpkin theme this week I made the girls pose with their pumpkins.  I can hardly get them to look at the camera at the same time, let alone smile!  They didn't like that the sun was in their eyes either.

They did enjoy the pumpkin lunch though.  Lucy thought her pumpkin sandwich was so pretty that she ate everything else and saved it for last.  We ate pear - leaves, raspberries, peanut butter and honey sandwich with a green bean vine, orange yogurt, and cheese - pumpkins.

Happy Fall!

(Can you believe this was just a small potted mum that I stuck in the ground once?  It comes back every year and is huge now.)


  1. I love the pumpkin with green bean vine. The girls look so cute.

  2. Beautiful pictures! Seems to me that you really enjoy the simple pleasures of life and being a mommy. Enjoy!

  3. This was part of my point in the video I made last week: To me, all MTM's are inspiring and I never want you to feel like your MTM's aren't inspiring enough to take a photo and share.

    That said, I love your mtm! the green bean vine is so sweet.

  4. what a great idea to use cookie cutters to make eating time more fun!

  5. No worries Michelle, I know I could have posted them. ;) *I* just wasn't inspired enough to pick up the camera, lol.

    Thanks for the complements!

  6. I snap pics of (almost - sometimes my camera's dead/forgotten) all my packed lunches, no matter how boring, because you never know. I occasionally lump them all together into one post.
    Especially if you made something from scratch with a recipe that might like to be shared, or used a technique that might be helpful and/or inspiring to someone else (even if it's 'old hat' to you!)

  7. The tin looks perfect and your little princesses are so adorable!!

  8. Great lunch! And your Mum is gorgeous. For some reason, every time I plant Mums, they never come back. :0(
