Muffin Tin Monday - Theme: Foods You Can Eat With A Straw!

(Jello, OJ, Caff. Free Coke, Pureed Strawberries (with a smidge of ice cream, Pureed Bananas, Apple Juice)

We got extremely creative with this week's Muffin Tin Meal. We did a "Taste Test" with all of our foods (ahem, drinks)! The kids were blind folded. They got to smell each section before they tasted it. And we recoded our "observations". It.Was. So. Much. Fun! The kids yelled out their answers and cheered when they got it right (which was almost everytime). Here were our "findings":

The "Aftermath"

And now it's your turn....I challenge you to think outside the box with this one....soups, smoothies, yogurt, pudding....It doesn't have to be pureed beef to be a "food"!!! :)

***I will accept non-themed muffin tin meals this week and put up the link without the photo if you still want to participate!***

Want to participate? Blog about your muffin tin meal (or post it to the flickr group) and come back here and leave me a comment with the URL. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

  1. Hi Michelle,

    I wanted to share with you that I recently found your blessed blog...and started my own. I have a 2 yo and a baby...always looking for simple crafts. I am also a Christian. So I have lots to learn from you! I look forward to reading your cancer story...that sounds weird, sorry.
    Feel free to come check us out. The blog is mostly about my children, with bits of Meghan's speech disorder and crafts thrown in.
    I really hope to have it be a witness, too, but I'm not so good at that...but I try...only one post so far really (mentioning church doesn't count :) )
    Anyway, just wanted to say hello. I look forward to getting to know you more!

  2. We opted to make a mid morning snack for Muffin Tin Monday. Maddie loves anything with a straw so of course it was a big hit! Thanks!

  3. I Love your taste test! We had a fun time doing this one. http://adventuresofaflake.blogspot.com/2009/02/smoothie-smorgasbord.html

  4. This was a fun one! Here is ours:


  5. I don't know Michelle - this one kind of sucked (pun totally intended) :)


  6. How fun, I've been looking forward to this week's post to see what everyone did! I love how you did the taste test too.

  7. That looks like a fun idea Michelle! Maybe I'll try that with my girls~

    And now I want an icee, hehe!

    Jamie :-)

  8. Wow! Nice job everyone! I was unable to pull this one off since I didn't look at the theme until today. My bad. It's fun to see what everyone else did!

    We had so much fun with this & made a whole day of it... I finally caught a chance to put up a picture & our story here - come see!

  10. Great idea of having them guess what they were "drinking". Looks like fun!

    I always have great intentions of getting my muffin tin in by Monday, but the last couple of weeks I have failed! I even had the idea of doing a smoothie sampler and making different kinds of smoothies to try. I'll TRY REALLY HARD to join in next week!

  11. We've missed joining in-this one looks especially fun-I like the taste testing idea....we'll be back :)
