What I Love Wednesday - Muffin Tin Monday

I LOVE Muffin Tin Meals - if you haven't ever tried this - DO IT!!!

This week the theme was Children's Christmas Stories and we chose:

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

In celebration of this wonderful Christmas story - we had a Who-ville kind of a feast:

Roast Beast (roast beef)

Who-hash (mashed potatoes garnished with asparagus, carrots and parnips)

Who-pudding (chocolate of course, with whipped cream)

Popcorn (the Grinch stole this from the house)

Milk (again - something the Grinch took from the icebox)

And Rolls (just because I can't have roast beef and mashed potatoes without rolls)

And then we read the book while we feasted - fabulous, fun dinner.

For more Muffin Tin Mommas (Christmas Story Edition), go to Her Cup Overfloweth - you won't be disappointed.

And just in keeping with my personal theme of "What I Love Wednesday" - this is what I love about Muffin Tin Meals:

They make the meal interesting and fun

They are a fun little challenge to throw into my week

The other moms doing this are so creative - it's always fun to see what others do

My kids love them - I have to do them for dinner because Thing 1 and Thing 2 get so pouty if they don't get one

It is a great way to introduce new foods to the kids

Small portions for small tummies - so perfect

They are just plain FUN!

Yum! Yum! Yum!!!

This is my favorite so far (I think) of your Muffin-tin-meals as far as the food.

My mouth is watering just looking at it. :-)

I'm glad you include the girls when you can -- doing a dinner.

Take care!
