Muffin Tin Monday

We really haven't been keeping up with muffin tin meals this summer. On these hot days, we tend to sleep in a bit, have a late breakfast and a light snack instead of lunch. As we sat down for lunch today, Laural asked me what day it was and when I told her it was Monday, she nearly had a fit that we weren't having lunch in a muffin tin. So, I transferred her food to a tin and everything was right with the world again.

Happy girl with her lunch.

She had a pb&j, a green bell pepper cup filled with apple sauce, the pepper top cut into pieces and a glass of milk.

The applesauce in the pepper was Laural's decision. I was teasing her earlier about putting the applesauce in the pepper and she really liked the idea and insisted that I do it that way. The pepper is from my parents' garden and the jelly on the sandwich is my homemade mint jelly.

Micah didn't have a tin because he was already eating, but when he saw me taking pics of the tin and Laural he started shouting "Mee! Meeee!" He seems to be growing up so fast all of a sudden. He's to that stage where he wants to have everything his sister is having and his speaking is becoming so much more clear and concise. He's really starting to communicate well by talking. Earlier today, while in the car, I turned down the radio to talk to Steve. Micah started yelling "Up! up!!" I looked at him, turned the radio up a bit and he said "Thank you." and he was quite happy again. It's awesome and a little sad to see him becoming a little boy and not my baby anymore.

The pepper was a great idea!

Your kids have beautiful-colored hair. I can't even tell you how much I love the pepper idea. I don't think my 3 or 5 year olds would be thrilled about it, but my 10 year old loves bell peppers SO MUCH. Can't wait to bust this out on him.

Thanks! Laural loves peppers but I wasn't sure how much she'd like it like that. She loved it though and ate all the applesauce and the entire pepper. It was a small one but she probably would have eaten one twice the size. LOL

What a fun idea to use the pepper as a bowl!!
