Muffin Tin Monday - Theme: Leftovers Rock!

Welcome to another fine edition of the weekly blog carnival that excites the tummies of children all over the world -Yes, friends, It's Muffin Tin Monday!

This week's theme: Leftover's Rock!

Wondering what this theme is about? It could also be called the "For-the-love-of-Pete-I-have-nothing-in-cupboards/fride-how-am-I-supposed-to-put-together-a-meal" theme. So...use leftovers, or whatever you can scrounge up that needs "getting rid of".

That extra piece of apple that your son didn't eat?" Perfect.
That half a chicken breast left over from last nights dinner? Perfect.
Those FIVE Cheezits someone was kind enough to NOT eat and put back in the box? Perfect.

You get the idea. Here's ours:

Last of the string cheese, 1/4 of an apple from lunch, the last english muffin in our house, leftover meatballs from a few dinners ago (cut up), graham crackers, tangerine cutie pieces

-All in leftover muffin cups from the week we did the color blue and rainbow.

So, there you have it.

A little MTM news for you. There is a new linky this week. You'll be happy to know it will include thumbnail photos!It's not that i don't love Mr. Linky...I just thought I would try something new. I used to manually upload photos and links before the linkies were invented. (That feels like ages ago, but it's only been a year!). Same drill as before, however, I think you'll get to choose your photo. If there are issues, I will revert back to Mr. Linky...


Happy Muffin Tin Monday. What did you make?!


  1. I have yet to get muffin tin mondays going at my house, and I have tried on non monday days, but my kids love lunch trays and brown bagging it (weirdos, I know) but I love this theme! I have been hosting impromptu "bottom of the box tea time" for my kids and the cul de sac neighbor kids. It's hilarious what is suddenly so appealing that ignored previously.



  2. Love the new linky, I've seen this on an other blog and really liked it. Added my link.

  3. It was fun doing leftovers. You tin looks great!

  4. What a fun theme, I can't wait to do mine, I love the thumbnail pictures too. I may have to try that for stART this week :0) I'll be back and linking up after lunch today!!

  5. I like the new linky :-)
    Nice tin!

  6. Why DIDN'T you title the theme as


    Just rolls right off the tongue...

  7. I think the new linky is great for people who like to browse the other ideas. This way I can see the picture and know whether I am interested in checking out the info on that day. It can be overwhelming when there are bunches of links to check out. I am planning to do MTM all summer while I'm at home with my kids! Thanks for the awesome ideas!

  8. It took me 3 tried to read that my thumbnail would take a while before it was displayed, doh! But I do like the lil thumb, wonder if it would work with loads of submission or if it would get messy...

  9. Just linked up and loved how easy this linky was to use. You are so right having the thumbnail pictures is perfect for MTM!!

  10. I love the new linky with the thumbnails. It is funny...I joined right before you switched to Mr. Linky. It is funny because I feel like that was forever ago. I am so grateful for Muffin Tin Monday!!! Great tin & GREAT THEME!!! Love it!
