Muffin Tin Monday - Theme: Planes, Trains, Automobiles



This week's theme for Muffin Tin Monday is Planes, Trains, and Automobiles...It was a tough one for me, I will have to admit. I kind of pulled something out of thin air in hopes the kidlets would like it! If you are new here, let me fill you in a little...
Muffin Tin Monday is a weekly blog carnival (held here at Her Cup Overfloweth), where we post about a Muffin Tin Meal we made for our kid(s). Sometimes there is a theme. Sometimes, there isn't (see my sidebar). What's a Muffin Tin Meal, you ask? It's simple: a meal in a muffin tin! And my motto is: You can be a basic or as detailed as you want! In other words, there is no wrong way to make a muffin tin meal. If you want to know a little more, be sure to check out the Muffin Tin Monday FAQ.
Muffin TIn Monday participation has doubled in the last month! Woo-hoo! I am so thrilled that so many of you have joined us! We had so many of you join us for the first time last week! Thank you for participating and welcome! Because of our jump in size, I won't be able to get to everyone every week, but I will try super hard!
So here's what we did:

We went with racecars today! I drew a "racetrack" around the tin. It was a HUGE hit! Here's waht we enjoyed:
~ Cheese "wheels"
~Licorice "stick shifts"
~Milk "fuel"
~ Apple "steering wheels"
~Chicken -for y'know when cars "play chicken"
~Cherries - as in "this racecar is so "cherry", or for the kind you hang on your rearview mirror!
Lightning McQueen and Doc decided to join us for lunch... They weren't that hungry...
