Muffin Tin Monday-ABC & 123

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

It's Muffin Tin Monday time, but once again I have ended up posting on Tuesday. I just cant seem to make, serve, and blog about the meal all on Monday. I plan to start serving the MTM meal on Fridays very soon so that I can be more timely on my posts.

It only took a few weeks, but I was already sure that I needed something new for our MTM lunches, so I checked out Hobby Lobby and was very excited to find our new MTM bears for just 9.99 :). There were 12 in the package, the equivalent to 2 tins, but the cheapest tin I found was 7.00 so this was cheaper and cuter. Plus, I love the fact that I dont have to come up with 6 different foods!

Our theme this week was ABC & 123. I first thought I might try to come up with something to go with the Jackson 5 song, but I wasnt doing very well. So, I went with the standby food of ABC's & 123's with meatballs-my absolute favorite kid's food! We also had Alphabet Soup, which I did not care for at all, and Alphabits Cereal. Thanks to the FrymanFour I decided to put it in the form of the tree in Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. I used a hotdog for the trunk and sprinkled more cereal at the bottom of the tree.

The kids LOVED this! Mustang even said "Wow, Mom, I love this food."

Since I had extra bears, even I ate out of the muffin tins. We had a lot of fun finding letters in our food and showing them to each other. For more great ideas head on over to Muffin Tin Mom.

OH my those are some cute cute cute! muffin cups. We don't have hobby lobbies in our area, but I think I might have to find something like those. I think I might jump on board the MTM thing just to encourage my kids to try something new.
Again, so cute, and soo creative girl!
