End of Summer Muffin Tin Monday Bash

Pierce starts school later this week, so I decided to give him an end of summer Muffin Tin Monday.

From left to right, a duck feet muffin cup filled with cucumbers (and a fish pick), a banana in a tiki lady cup (with a crabby head), a glass of water with a fish straw, ranch dressing (for dipping the cucumber) in a tiki man cup, and a duck feet cup of tomato pie.  Lots from the garden this week!  We're really enjoying all the tomatoes.

Tomato pie? I'm still wolfing down tomato sandwiches! Joe did another batch of sauce this weekend and will be doing more...:)JP

An awesome muffin tin to end summer vacation, Lisa. So cute. I'm sure Pierce will miss these. :)

Is it wrong that I want duck feet muffin cups of my very (adult) own!?
Those are adorable.

Such a cute way to end the summer! Glad to hear he made it into the fours program. The bus would make nervous !

Jill said...

That is the cutest lunch I've ever seen! You are a fun Mom!

Sugary Flower said...

That looks like a fun lunch! I wish my girl would eat tomatoes... sigh...

Pierce probably won't ever be so happy with school lunch! My tomatoes are very late this year. So far I have a lot of green ones. Can't wait to get eating them.

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

That is the cutest lunch! I saw a recipe for tomato pie a few weeks ago and have been excited to make it, though my husband is skeptical. My tomatoes are just coming on.

Sandy said...

He is going to be really disappointed when he goes to school and they slap nasty food on his lunch tray for him to eat. You might want to warn him about that....LOL

Melodie said...

Such a fun meal!

Mary said...

Mmm that looks good! Very tasty and creative :)

(Florida) Girl said...

That banana is probably my favorite.

I think I need to get on the tomato pie bandwagon.

Michelle said...

We used our silly feet muffin cups this week. I never saw the duck ones before they are really cute!!!

I love all your fancy cups. Never heard of tomato pie. We've been getting tomatoes out of the garden, but they have been very small due to the lack of rain last month and the heat. Still scrumptious though. I really love your back to school lunch.

Jill said...

How can a kid not want to eat from such cool serving containers!
I hope Pierce is looking forward to school. Is this his 1st year?

Frugal in WV said...

Those are adorable, I bet my two boys would love these :)

Kim said...

You ARE a fun mom and smart to boot. I'll bet he ate all that right up. I need to get more creative to get the vegetables in them.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Wow---that looks neat and SO creative, Lisa. I'm sure that Pierce will miss the Muffin Tin Mondays for awhile....

Thanks for sharing. Do you share those meals with us adults????? ha
Hugs,
