TMTT: Muffin Tin Meals

What does this look like to you?
Of course it LOOKS like a muffin tin. But it can be so much more than that!

There is a new way of eating that I have discovered that is sweeping across blog land called "Muffin Tin Meals". It is really fun and have themes. Although my boys are older, I love this idea and wanted to share this with you.

Have you ever read Eric Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"? Here is a wonderful muffin tin meal that was created to go along with that book...

How adorable is that? How fun would that be to snack on while reading the book?
There are all kinds of things you can do with muffin tin meals.
(Also notice all the various "muffin tins" you can use.)
Shapes

Colors
Holidays

Girly

Family Heritage

Based on a book
The possibilities are endless!

For more great meal ideas and recipes, join me in visiting Tempt My Tummy Tuesday!

I totally plan on doing the muffin tin thing when we have kids. You have some great ideas here. I especially love the way you put the holes in the food for the hungry caterpillar book. Very cute!
