Muffin Tin Monday Picnic

We actually did this muffin tin Monday a few weeks ago.  The weather was gorgeous so I decided to take Sassyfras and Juiciness to the park for lunch after preschool.  To make it easy on myself, I stopped by the grocery and hit the salad/hot bar.

Carrots, tofu, broccoli, pasta salad, and a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. Milk to drink and dip is in a separate container.

They haven't always been this way, but lately one food can't touch another food or there are serious "issues".  I thought about this ahead of time and brought some muffin liners with me and just popped them into the takeout containers.  I found it also helped me keep their portion size appropriate (I tend to over fill these containers).


They were excited to go to the park after school and we enjoyed a simple picnic in November!  Plus, we didn't have any food touching issues...although I still couldn't sell the tofu...oh well.

I was going to say that I was impressed that the kids eat tofu, until I read the last sentence. I haven't done a muffin tin lunch in so long.

Looks delicious.. I am with them on the food touching.. I can "handle it" now but I would prefer it to not touch!

Fortunately my kids don't have a food touching issue. I think you had a great solution and a great picnic idea.
