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...

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