Muffin Tin Monday: Butterflies & Flowers

This week’s Muffin Tin Meal was quickly put together to cheer up my poor sick kids. I used muffin cups to make this creative lunch for them to share.

Next, I made an apple flower.  I used a teardrop-shaped mini cutter to make “petals” from an apple, then arranged them in a flower shape.  A muffin cup with peanut butter to dip and more pineapple yogurt (no sprinkles for Boy) finish the meal.

Dalton spooned his yogurt into the peanut butter cup, then ate whatever I could scrape off the plate to feed him.  Maggie ate everything else! She loved the butterfly quesadilla, even though I haven’t been able to get her to eat a quesadilla in a long time.  She even requested it again for dinner.
