Muffin Tin Monday--Party Theme

So, the theme this week for Muffin Tin Monday is Party/Celebration. I thought this was a good theme, since I was pretty happy that my son has had four days in a row of eating good. So, it was definitely a deserved celebration! I don't normally let him eat like this unless it's a special occasion, and I couldn't think of what to give him, so this probably doesn't look very creative. I was thinking cake and ice cream had to be in there somewhere, so I cut up some pound cake and put a scoop of vanilla ice cream with some sprinkles on it. Then, I was trying to think of what else we normally have at a party. Well, Chex Mix sometimes... little cubes of cheese... crackers or chips with dip... and many times we have fresh fruit to snack on. Then, after I filled up my muffin tin with all these yummy, but only semi-nutritious snacks, I thought about mini sandwiches, mini quiche, and mini sausages... yum! Some of those would have been a little bit more nutritious... at least in the "protein" department... Oh well! I'll be more creative next time. ;)

Needless to say... my son loved this! He ate almost all of it, except a few pieces of cheese and fruit. For some reason, he prefers his ice cream to be closer to room temperature, which got a little messy... But, it was fun for him! He loved using the toothpicks to pick up his food! He wanted seconds on the Chex Mix and the Cheez-Its, which surprised me... I thought he would be begging for more cake and ice cream! Apparently he's craving sodium this week... 

If you haven't heard of Muffin Tin Mondays... check out Michelle's blog at Her Cup Overfloweth for more info or to join the fun! 

Oh, and in case you were wondering... I did not give this to my son for breakfast! He actually ate this on Saturday evening. :)

Enjoy!

Love it! That's everything I would eat at a party. I never even thought of the cheese cubes.

I need to try this muffin tin thing. I keep seeing it everywhere. My kids totally eat like this, but I just put it all over a plate. this seems much cleaner.

Eating good for 4 days straight is cause for celebration in my book!

So YUMMY!! You could have just given the pound cake and ice cream and I'd have been satisfied:-)!!
