Long Live the Veggies! Muffin Tin Monday

Another garden-heavy Muffin Tin Monday here!  I used our very first tomato to make grilled cheese (love!).  Pierce also had a cucumber/carrot salad (with a seahorse pick), home cooked green beans, and cherries (these were not from the garden - I only wish we had cherries!).  He really liked everything and ate pretty well. 

I would share the cucumber/carrot marinated salad recipe, only it wasn't that great.  It was one of my "creations".  This one needs more work to be share-worthy!

You had me at grilled cheese, other than maybe bacon or ham I'm not putting anything else on it. But for kids i can see the effort in trying to help make it a little more healthy for them. Richard

You know I've never had tomato with my grilled cheese. I always just do grilled cheese plain with pickles on the side.

Have a Great Day!

This looks great to me! We're still waiting to get our first tomatoes. But, I think I'll still make some grilled cheese for lunch today.

I can't wait for our tomaties to be ready. If they can survive the heat, that is.

Pierce's lunch looks yummy. :)

Another cute lunch with all my favs!
Don't know if you have ever heard of watermelon rind pickles - they are sweet and delicious...anyway, I bought a cookbook once that had a handwritten note by an elderly lady. It said that when she was little, her mom would let her and her brother take the watermelon rind and use cookie cutters to cut out cute designs for the pickles! Maybe you can use this tip some time!
