Muffin Tin Meals

I have been doing muffin tin meals, but haven't been blogging lately.  Today's theme is trees, leaves, & harvest.  I love to decorate for fall, but can you believe I do not have even one leaf cookie cutter?  I did have a tiny apple cookie cutter & some tree top food picks I got in my winning package from Muffin Tin Mom
The kids chose the bear muffin tin silicone liners.  I served them a strawberry kiwi mini muffin, applesauce, apple shaped peanut butter & raspberry jam sandwiches, and vanilla yogurt.   My daughter ate up every bite, but my son left his muffin stump behind.  LOL
 Here is a picture of all of the items we received from Muffin Tin Mom.   The kids were very excited to receive all of these goodies.   Until now, we only had standard & mini muffin tins and one pumpkin tin they would fight over take turns using.  
 Here is a picture of the lunch they had on the day we received the package.  They both had to have a flower, bear, & silly feet silicone holder filled.  They had steamed carrots, sauteed smoked sausage & ketchup.
Until last week, I had never heard of grilled pb&j sandwiches before.  My friend Jac was talking about how her daughter requested them, so we had to try it.  This was our Halloween muffin tin meal from last week's theme.  They had cottage cheese, grilled pb&j (raspberry jam), animal crackers, shark crackers (Aldi's version of goldfish - much tastier!!), and Laurana had an apple, too.  Liam did not want one for some reason.  He normally begs to eat fruit 2-3 times per day.   This meal was not very festive, except that we had the cute pumpkin tin.
