Taco Night - Muffin Tin Monday

I haven't done Muffin Tin Monday in quite some time.  But it seemed a shame not to feature these cute little penguin plates and forks that my mom got for the boys last year on Christmas clearance.
I hadn't done taco night in ages, and this time it went over really well with the boys.  Or maybe it was because of the penguin plates?  They had grass-fed beef tacos with cheddar, Mexican style rice in present shaped muffin cups (with a snowman pick), and steamed broccoli with salsa in a present shaped muffin cup with a gingerbread man pick.  Everybody earned dessert this night, and I'm thinking I should have taco night again soon!

My kids love mexican! We don't often do tacos, but we do bean burritos a lot and chili. I never thought to put salsa and broccoli together though, so I will have to try that!

Looks so fun! That's a good idea to use salsa with broccoli--I'll have to remember that.

We had taco night last week, they didn't last long as we hadn't had them in awhile.
Of course mind weren't as neat as your tacos but my girls don't look at them long anyway!

Taco night is a favorite at our house. But instead of ginger bread, margaritas are our reward.

Ginny said...

I have said it before, but you have got to have the healthiest boys around!!! You are always so very mindful of lots of varied and healthful food, at the same time making it such fun!!! Here, I especially like the fork.

Angela said...

Too cute Lisa! Don't you love it when the kids start eating the foods we like so we don't have to cook special foods for them and something for us! I still can't get Jarod to eat tacos....

We haven't had tacos in a while. Thanks for the suggestion.
I don't think we have ever done it with muffin tins though. There's a thought.
Love the penguin plate and the cups and picks.
