Muffin Tin Monday

This is my first time participating in Muffin Tin Monday. When I saw the idea at Her Cup Overfloweth, I thought it was so cute! And what a great way to mix things up and add some extra variety for a picky eater... like my son (occasionally). Anyways, since this week there is no theme, I thought this Monday would be the perfect day to start! So, I gave my son a mix of four different things in my 6-cup muffin tin. I think next time I'll use all 6 cups to give him even more variety...  In this muffin tin, I put some strawberries, bite-sized chicken-apple sausage, cut up string cheese, and Banana Nut Cheerios. Excuse the shabby muffin tin... it's been used. If you've been following my blog, you know that I love making muffins, so I definitely make good use of all my muffin tins! :)

Well, this was one of my son's "picky" weeks, so... much to my dismay he wouldn't touch the sausage or the cheese (big sigh...). But of course, he loved the Cheerios and the strawberries! Hmmm.... I wonder why...  Anyways, like I said, I will keep trying, and maybe we will be a little more successful next time. I still think this is a super cute idea and it is great to make things a little different for meal time. I think my son really liked picking the food out of the little cups. :)

that's one of the reasons I love muffin tin meals- smaller portions mean less commitment if they won't eat something!

I also loved how you used only four cups out of the six! so smart!

That's a great idea! I have a picky eater too and he also has food allergies so, you can imagine what I go through...

What a great idea! I wish I would've had this idea when my son waas little. It's taken time but he eventually came around and started expanding his culinary palette. Just keep trying, he'll eventually start trying new things.

Welcome to MTM! I make muffins in all my tins too and they looked really used, but my kiddos don't seem to mind.
