Fall Bug Tin on Muffin Tin Monday

It's Muffin Tin Monday again, and I thought we'd give our new bug tin that we found at TJ Maxx a try this time.  Cort had the same foods, but he had his in our Wilton clover tin.
So Reid had a small slice of blueberry apple pie (made from our apple trees), a slice of garlic bread, watermelon (yes, we still have a few in our garden!), some vegetable meatball soup, and peach yogurt.  I don't know about you, but this time of year I go crazy for homemade soups.  They are economical and easy, and my boys seem to love them.  I just make them extra chunky so we don't have as much of a mess to clean up. 

The boys both ate the yogurt first (and begged for more) followed by the watermelon and apple pie.  Then they had the soup (they really do love soup, they were just tempted by the sweets first), and neither of them ate the garlic bread.  Which meant the garlic bread fell to me to finish off, because I hate to see a good bread go to waste!

What a cute tin!! Like you, this time of year we start thinking SOUP. My Hubs loves soups.... I just got most of the ingredients so I can make a big pot of Wedding soup and freeze it.

Everything in your tin looks great, Bet the kids love doing this.

TexWisGirl said...

thank goodness you run - or cleaning up garlic bread after 3 boys could become bad for your health. :)

Shell said...

I really hope to get my boys to like soups more. They haven't been big fans. And I love soup and homemade bread this time of year!

What a cute and fun lunch!

I love homemade soups this time of year too-they always taste so good on a fall or winter day.

Hope you had a great weekend!!

I always look at those muffin tins with envy. I would need one for each child for it to work around here though. :(

I am with you on the garlic bread! And I am also glad it is soup time again : )

How cute! I wish I had known about or been clever enough to think of these muffin tin meals when my kiddos where younger!

Sharla said...

sounds really healthy and good for this time of year.

Sandy said...

While it has cooled here a bit (low 100's) it just isn't cool enough yet for me to start making soups/stews. I like them because I can make a batch on the weekend & take it in my lunch all week.

I would eat every single bit of that, including the garlic bread! YUM!!!!

Jen said...

That's so cute! I love soups this time of year too! Just had chili with peanut butter and honey for dinner but I'd love to have some of your chunky veggie soup!

Nezzy said...

Oh sweetie, what a grand idea for both you and the kiddos. There's nothin' like a 'fun' meal!

God bless and have a terrific day sweetie!!!

Farmchick said...

lol I finished off my daughter's garlic bread tonight for the very same reason! I love these meals that you fix for your boys and wish I had done this type of thing when my kids were younger.
