The Twins Get Muffin Tin Lunches

I've received many comments asking me when I'd start doing muffin tins for the twins.  The time has come!  Last winter I found these Christmas tree tins at a thrift store for $1 each - and there were three of them which was just perfect!  Granted, I think they're more designed for fat cookies than muffins, but they still fit the purpose.  I did a theme of the four seasons - since we're on the cusp of autumn.
Green peas for Summer, pink watermelon for Spring, orange macaroni and cheese for Fall, and coconut cream yogurt for Winter.  The twins loved their first muffin tins, and they polished off everything except for a few of the peas.  Who would've known Summer would be their least favorite of the seasons?  ;-)

I love your seasons idea! I'm impressed they ate most of their peas. My 1-year-old would have thrown Summer on the floor. :)

Chris said...

What about a summer/fall mix?

Or if you live in the UK, just get rid of Summer altogether since we never really had one...

...they'd love it here.
