We, of course, had to go with a Valentine’s theme for our muffin tin meal this week. I had some heart shaped silicone muffin pans I had gotten last year on clearance after the big lovey day. I pulled those out. I had thought I had a mini-heart cookie cutter, but was disappointed to find I did not. Note to self – look in clearance section again this year on Friday! So I did the best with what I had. In true six year old fashion, when I set the meal on the table, Roo had to say, “Not everything is heart shaped.” Thanks for rubbing it in, guy. Here’s our Valentine themed lunch:
In this muffin tin: heart shaped sausage, strawberries, grape tomatoes, a heart shaped slice of cheese, non-heart shaped Goldfish crackers , and a handful of conversation heart candies.
The boys actually ate just about everything in this meal. Roo cleaned his tin and Monkey just left most of his Goldfish. This does not surprise me. That kid will love Goldfish, then as soon as I buy the huge carton size of them, he doesn’t like them. Shortly after I have to throw a third of the carton out because the crackers got stale, he will beg for Goldfish again. Sigh. This is our life.
