Switching Gears, Muffin Tin Monday

It's Muffin Tin Monday, and today is no theme.  So I decided it was time to switch gears from fall and move into winter.  Although it's officially not winter.  And I hate snow.

Last summer I bought a lot of 3 new winter themed muffin tins off Ebay.  I used one in a giveaway (JDaniel4sMom won it) and kept the other two for us.  So now I finally get to put them to good seasonal use!

So to fill our snowflake tin we have fish sticks with ketchup for dipping, a small side salad with ranch and olives, pearled couscous, and roasted eggplant/cauliflower mix.

On a side note, if you've never tried the pearled couscous, give it a shot.  It is absolutely one of my favorite side dishes, and is very easy to cook.  It also happens to be a big hit with all three boys (although it does tend to get all over when the twins eat it).

We love couscous too, and discovered the pearl kind a couple years ago. Tasty. It's nice in broth too.
