Muffin Tin Monday: {theme} the BOY!!!

Happy MTM Everybody! Just curious... have any of our blog followers tried a muffin tin lunch with their kids yet?? Leave us a comment and let us know!

Because we’ve been closely following the Celebrate the BOY month-long event over at Made by Rae & Dana MADE blogs, we’ve been consumed with all things BOY. We’ve both even been trying out their pants tutorials for our super-skinny boys. Thus, it made sense for us to carry the theme into this week’s Muffin Tin Monday! Here is what we both came up with for fun boy foods!

{Top row} Mud & Worms (choc pudding & gummy worms), Football-shaped Turkey Sandwiches, Gone Fishin’ (goldfish crackers, & pretzel/spaghetti noodle pole)
{Bottom row} A Blazing Campfire (pretzels & shredded cheese), Jello Cars, Banana Bug (pretzels, matchstick carrots & choc chips for details)



Banana Bug
If you can’t tell from the pictures, I (Mary Beth) totally had fun planning, making and serving this lunch to my little guy! He experienced many firsts eating this, but the best part for him was his discovery of JELLO! :) My favorite part of the lunch was the banana bug- I couldn’t get over how stinking cute it was!
Since my husband comes home for lunch just about every day, and our theme is all about boys, how could I leave him out of the fun? Yes, I made my manly husband a muffin tin lunch- and.he.loved.it! He told me again at dinner how fun lunch was!  Every man is a little boy at heart!

I love the banana bug. The campfire would disappear first at my house.

Your meal is so fun and it looks delicious too. My husband's boss likes my muffin tin meals when I post them on Facebook. I am thinking I might send one to work with my husband to give to him. LOL!

Very cool. I love the banana bug too! Sometimes if my mum comes over on a Monday, she and I have to have a MTM as well! So maybe it's not just the boys.... :o)
