Muffin Tin Monday

Yogurt, sandwich, pumpkin shaped peppermint patty, greenbeans, strawberries and raspberries, and strawberry yogurt. 



Today's MTM, sponsored by Muffin Tin Mom, has no theme.  I thought I would be easy on myself and get back to the orgins of MTM.  I simply put their regular lunch in a muffin tin...no fancy sandwiches or cutouts.  And guess what?  They still loved it and thought it was great.

I love just doing normal lunch in a tin. So simple.
We haven't tried the uncrustables before. I bet they'd be a hit - I have to cut off the crusts on every single sandwich. Sigh.

Love simple. Our muffin tins are quite simple usually, I don't get very fancy. Our crusts never get eaten either. One reason I like cutting them out into shapes for these tins because then I eat the extra instead of it getting wasted. That is usually my lunch, the scraps leftover from cutting out shapes and letters.
If you have a chance I invite you over to my blog to check out our Ss tins

JDaniel would love all the cups that are in your tin. There is something special about the plastic cups in his mind.

Love the tin!! esp all the strawberry stuff :)

For anyone else who makes the crustless sandwiches (we do too) pampered chef sells cut-n-seal - makes sandwiches just like the uncrustables (good thing - my kids prefer jam to jelly)

I also use a KrustBuster to make crustless sandwich pockets. I like it a little more than the Pampered Chef one because it's square and I can use it to make half-sandwich pockets, or sandwich finger pockets (I can usually fit 3 per sandwich.) You can kinda see them in the bottom of this post http://bitingmyhand.blogspot.com/2010/07/times-between-part-1.html

But unless I'm making 'fancy' lunches, I keep the crusts on and make her eat around them. Sometimes she's hungry enough and eats them too, and I don't want to teach her that crusts aren't for eating! I don't MAKE her eat them, but I don't cut them off special for her (other than using cookie cutters, Lunch Punches or my sandwich pocket makers,) except one time she specifically asked for a 'no-crust sandwich.'

The best thing about Muffin Tin Monday is that the kids enjoy it whether it's fancy or not! :0)
