Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

We had movie night with a muffin tin dinner, picnic style on a blanket in the living room. It was so much fun. Next time, I’ll leave the m&ms off the tray until after the meal. I can’t wait to see the other muffin tin meals this week for some inspiration!

Muffin Tin Monday – Team Umizoomi Snack Patterns

The show Team Umizoomie on Nick Jr. has made B LOVE to work with patterns. For months I’ve been trying and trying to create opportunities to work on these and talk about them and he went along with it but wasn’t thrilled about it until watching Team Umizoomie. They have the cutest song about a snack pattern that we’ve changed and used to create so many other patterns.

So for Muffin Tin Monday this week we made our own snack patterns. I made the first two and then left the ingredients in cups for B to make a couple. So fun!

Muffin Tin Monday – Orange

cheese cubes, oranges, carrots, mac n cheese, cheetos, peach yogurt, and cheese crackers

We hunted for orange food this week at the grocery store. Fun! B’s favorite was cheetos but the carrots and mac n cheese were left at the table. B never eats the mac n cheese when it is leftovers. Who knew he could tell?!

Muffin Tin Monday – Christmas

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

The theme for this week’s Muffin Tin Monday is Christmas. I decided to focus on Christmas colors and have a Red and Green meal. We bought a new green tin at Hobby Lobby (How can you resist a child saying “We should get this for Muffin Tin Monday.” OK!) and then went on a hunt to fill it with red foods. I had B searching the pantry for red food ideas. After I said no to filling one section with ketchup (although it is red), I gave in to the red sucker idea. So not a super healthy meal, but a fun one!

muffin tin meal This week’s theme for Muffin Tin Monday is “Christmas Morning”. I have NO idea what we will be eating Christmas morning. We don’t really have a tradition in place yet. I’m dreaming of something special, yet fast and easy. Any ideas?

So I gave B 3 waffles and some toppings to build a snowman. Here is the final product….

Turkey, Christmas Tree Sandwich, Fruit, Doritos, Mac n cheese, Applesauce with sprinkles

There wasn’t a theme this week for Muffin Tin Monday so it was the perfect time to use our new snowman tin (Target Dollar Spot $2.50). What else do people do with these besides Muffin Tin Monday? Muffins? Ice? Anyway after arranging a variety of food in this cute tin, all B ate was the sandwich and chips! Ahhhh! We can’t wait for next week’s Christmas Morning theme!

Muffin Tin Monday – Happy Birthday, Brown Bear!

brown bear birthday I just couldn’t come up with anything creative for Muffin Tin Monday and then B announced that it was Brown Bear’s birthday. So we had a party. I used old, stale ice cream cones as my muffin tin with applesauce, yogurt, and fruit in them (all with sprinkles).

muffin tin meal I just had to include a picture of B with his “party hat” on. Also, he made that sign for Brown Bear and afterwards I said, “Do you want me to write Happy Birthday, Brown Bear on it?” and he said “Mama, I already did”. (Ooooh, right, ok!). This turned out to be a really fun snack. We sang and B blew out the candle for Brown Bear. The ice cream cones do get soggy and break after a few minutes so whoever is eating them has to stay focused. =)
