muffin tin monday

Oohh, I think I have time to squeeze in another quick post. Right now the girls are happily drawing pictures to go along with a story they're telling me.
Anyway, I read out in blogland about a new thing going on...Muffin Tin Monday. It's just a simple, fun, change of pace for lunch on Mondays. I read about it here and here. I suppose it would work for any meal, but I did it for lunch today. As you can see from the pictures, I just put a little bit of each thing in each cup. Lunch is typically our biggest meal of the day, so it worked out nicely. However, I may try it for dinner some time then maybe dinner would go a little more smoothly. Hhhmmm. Something to think about.
The girls really enjoyed Muffin Tin Monday today! Sometimes the simplest of things are the most successful!

Carrots, grapes, almonds, crackers, yogurt, and 1/2 of a sunbutter & jelly sandwich. Mmm.

Miss O gives it a big thumbs up!

Miss E is all smiles with her muffin tin....and yes, she's wearing a crown:o)

what a great idea...thanks for sharing...now I need to find four of those...wonder if they are at the dollar store...I only have the 12 muffin tins.
Morgan loves to give each of her food items space, so she would be all over this. I always tease her that it is all mixed up in her tummy.
