Muffin Tin Monday-ABC & 123
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.
