Totems on Muffin Tin Monday

It's Muffin Tin Monday, and this was a very tasty dinner we had one evening.  I enjoyed breaking out the totem poles cups again.

Baked salmon and roasted onions in a creamy dill sauce, wild long grain rice, and roasted brussels and carrots, plus a side skewer of grapes.
Turns out Mom and Dad enjoyed the salmon more than the kids did.  Oh well, more for us!

You have so many muffin tins... Where in the world do you store them all. I have a lot of cabinets in my kitchen and they are all full.

Very creative Lisa. Yeah, for our kids refined tastes means adding ketchup to the hot dog.

Valerie said...

I could use a set of those! I get so tired of unexciting lunches and dinners. I would have gobbled up the salmon, and the brussel sprouts too:)

Oh I love salmon! Though I can't get anyone in my family to eat brussel sprouts. Maybe I'm cooking them wrong.

Nicole Andersen said...

those are too cute! Bet they enjoyed it! Well... ok, like you said not the salmon but I bet they liked the rest!

Jo said...

Oooh, I haven't had brussels sprouts in far too long. How do you prepare them? Mmm.

Cute cups. We usually shred our leftover salmon and have salmon salad sandwiches for lunch the next day.. it's pretty yummy!

Farmchick said...

Love the totem pole cups! Maybe a little ranch dressing for the salmon? My daughter used a little to dress up most things she doesn't like.
