Muffin Tin Monday: Unique Kids Food Ideas

Today is Muffin Tin Monday and it is the weekly blog carnival that has kids all over the world jumping for joy. I remember the expression my daughter gave me when I first put food in a muffin tin for her. I will never forget that little sparkle that I saw. I still see it every time I serve a Muffin Tin Meal. It's not for every child, but we love it.

This week there is 
so you are "on your own" so to speak. :) Here's what we had for snack:

Crinkle Cut Carrots, Diced Apples, Annie's Cheddar Bunnies, Red Licorice Pieces, Colby Jack Cheese Stars, Chocolate Chips

I was graciously given a package of assorted cheeses by Smart and Final (they heard about my obsession with their cupcake mix ;) and am part of the SF Smarties team for Smart and Final. It has been awhile since I had tasted Colby Jack. It is so soft and delicious. Smart and Final would like you to know they are having a promotion on their First Street brand of cheeses right now, so check 'em out if you live in NV, AZ,CA and more.

Now It's your turn. Did you make a Muffin Tin Meal this week? I would love to see it! You can add your blog post, facebook photo (shout out to all the FB fan pagers!), or other photo sharing website by clicking on the blue "add your link" button, just remember to include a link back to muffintinmom.com somewhere on the page. :) Can't wait!
