Muffin Tin Monday

I stumbled across a site that posts ideas for making lunch and serving it in muffin tins on Monday. I totally loved the idea. I couldn't wait to get started but started drawing a blank. I didn't know what I was going to do. The week I found it was no theme and I just couldn't think of anything lol. This week's theme was Planes, Trains and Automobiles. I started thinking about traveling in each of those. I decided on the peanuts and root beer because that's what I always had on a plane ride. I wanted to make train or car sandwiches, but didn't have a cookie cutter for it so we got stars! Then I put in some fruit and cheese because we take that a lot with us in the car when we travel. I also put in those animal cracker cookies that come in the red train box. The kids loved it!! They were so excited to have the food in the muffin tray. I had found the star one on clearance after the 4th and the flower one I bought on E-bay. You can check out the site I found here: Muffin Tin Monday. Next week the theme is: No Theme so I guess I will be practicing my creative skills lol. We enjoyed our first week and look forward to many more!!
