Muffin Tin Meals

A week or two ago, Today's Creative Blog did a feature on this blog: She had the cutest idea to make lunchtime fun...muffin tin meals!!! So I decided to try it today with my three year old. This is a picture of my first try at dog, bread squares, cheese, frozen peas, sliced pickles, mini Ritz crackers, chocolate chips, and ketchup and BBQ sauce for dipping. It sounds like such a simple little thing, but my daughter absolutely loved it. I surprised her with it and when she saw it, she said, "Oh, YUMMY!" She ate everything. She even announced when she finished a whole cup off and counted how many empty ones she had each time a new one was finished. Wow. A few minutes extra work for me with such a big payoff. We will definitely be doing more muffin tin meals in the future!


  1. awww.
    it really, really is worth that extra work.
    2 toddlers here...believe me i know.

  2. I LOVE it! I think I might have to do a special lunch my my classroom of toddlers or husband... :)
