Favorite Foods - Muffin Tin Muffin

Today's  Muffin Tin Monday theme is favorite foods.  And I couldn't quite bring myself to fill tins with M+Ms, cupcakes, ice cream and brownies.  Because wouldn't that be every preschooler's choice? 

Instead, I focused on working favorites into a balance.
We used our Celebrate plate to make things special, along with our new present muffin liners.
Pierce had a fruit cup, shrimp (I've long blogged about how much the kid loves shrimp) plus olives (of course!), sauteed mushrooms (believe it or not - he adores mushrooms) and macaroni and cheese.  He ate everything but the mac+cheese, which is hit or miss with the kid.  So overall, I got mostly favorites in there.

You can join Muffin Tin Monday too!

Looks delicious~! Why would not any kid clean up their plate when they see this in front of them.
Tracie got the Curious George game at Stuff Ect. $1.40.

My kids are hit and miss on the mac and cheese too! lol I know some families that that is all they serve. I couldn't get by with that. Mine would prefer the M&M's for sure!

Have a Great Day!
