Muffin Tin Monday...

...puts a smile on this little girls face!!!
This week there is no theme for Muffin Tin Monday so we just had a fun lunch of some of Emily's favorite foods in her muffin tin.

Emily's Muffin Tin Lunch

Top Row: Homemade Banana Bread, Peasnap Crisps, Strawberry Apple Sauce

Bottom Row: Alphabet Soup in Vegetable Broth, Mozzarella Cheese Circles, Peanut Butter and Jelly Roll-Ups



Strawberry Apple Sauce

Emily and I both LOVE the flavored applesauce in the cups, however I usually buy the giant size of applesauce since I usually give it to Emily as part of her dinner to sneak in a fruit serving and it is so much more economical. So when we went strawberry picking in June, I pureed some of the strawberries and froze them in ice cube trays. Once they were frozen I popped them out into a Ziploc bag. Now when we want strawberry flavored applesauce I just thaw one of the cubes in the microwave and mix it with a serving of applesauce. I plan on trying this with peach, blueberry and mango too!

Ooh I love the peanut butter and jelly rollups - we'll definitely be trying that! You always have such fun ideas - I should send Matthew to your house for his meals, lol. He is so picky and I get stuck in the same rut all the time, sigh. I like the strawberry puree in applesauce idea too!

Hi Michelle

I love how you have put together such a diverse range of yummy goodies.

Feather painting sounds like it was lots of fun and Emily's creation is wonderful. I also love to paint when my little ones are painting.
