Muffin-Tin Monday

So I was browsing the website Make and Takes and found this cute idea of Muffin-Tin Monday. That gal at Make and Takes got her inspiration from here. I guess there is a bunch of muffin-tinning going on out in the blogging world. Crazy. But fun. So today was our first Muffin-Tin Monday. Here is what ours looked like:

From bottom left, over 2, then up (ha, get it!?): lasagna, parmesan cheese, carrots and dip, grapes, sprinkles, and cheerios. The kids LOVED it. Seriously. I never feed them this much variety at lunch (or really any meal) and so that was a bonus. I told the boys they couldn't eat the sprinkles until most of everything else was gone - and they did great with that. Here they are eating their yummies:

And here is the muffin-tin afterwards:
Jonas (upper hand) began stirring and kept that up for a good 10 minutes. Miles (bottom hand) finished off the last couple bites of Jonas' lasagna.

I'd say our first Muffin-Tin Monday was a success.

somehow a muffin tin filled with formula just doesn't sound that exciting right now. but i'll file this idea.
