Muffin Tin Monday - Orange

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

This week for Muffin Tin Monday, the theme is Orange.
Kahlen is starting to look forward to her muffin tin lunches. On Friday, she asked me if it could be muffin tin Friday, and today I said "It's Monday, what does that mean?" She replied "Muffin Tin Monday!!!".

I actually planned ahead this week and remembered to buy some orange food at the store :)

Top row: oranges, sweet potato, cheese
Bottom row: carrots, mac'n'cheese, orange m&m's
We also had orange juice in an orange cup

Of course, she ate the M&M's first and didn't eat the oranges or the sweet potatoes, but you can't blame me for trying, right? At least she ate all her carrots (without any dressing even!).

Since orange was an easy food, I did one for little man too:

He got sweet potatoes with tofu, squash & zucchini, and sweet potato chunks rolled in cheerio powder.
This was the first time I'd given him chunks of anything besides cheerios and he {LOVED} it! I guess we're on to finger food, eh?

I love the idea of pototoes rolled in cheerio powder. I will have to try it. Great tin!

cheerio powder is so creative!

Looks good! I used cheerio powder for some of my kid's first finger foods too. Especially bananas since they are just so darn hard for little fingers to pick up! Yay for moving on to finger foods!

There is no way he's old enough for that yet, is there? How time flies!

I have those exact same sippy cups!

Looks really tasty. I think if sweet-potatoes came candy-coated, my daughter still wouldn't touch them. Good try!
