Muffin Tin Monday

A very ABC Muffin Tin Monday!!
This weeks theme for Muffin Tin Monday was Letters of the Alphabet. We stuck to the letters A,B and C for today's lunch. Emily was very excited to get her favorite Cookie Monster Alphabet Cookies for lunch!!

Here is Emily's ABC Muffin Tin

Top Row: Cookie Monster Alphabet Cookies, Blueberry Applesauce, Cheddar Bunny Crackers

Bottom Row: Alphabet Soup

Emily liked dipping her cookies in her blueberry applesauce.

The Blueberry applesauce was her favorite!!

Emily loves to have soup for lunch. I don't like that the cans of soup have so much sodium in them so I decided to make my own...it is really simple and I love that I know exactly what is going into it!!

Easy Alphabet Soup

  • 1 can reduced sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • Alphabet pasta ~ or your favorite type of pasta (Emily loves tri-color tortellini too!)
  • Frozen mixed vegetables
  • Parmesan Cheese

Bring the broth to a boil, add in as much pasta and vegetables as you like, I usually add extra because Emily prefers more pasta and veggies and less broth. Boil till pasta and vegetables are tender about 7 minutes.

Top with Parmesan cheese and enjoy!!

Hi Michelle

What a fun and tasty selection. Providing ample opportunities for "dipping" seems to always work for a two year old!
