This week’s theme was “Big and little, short and tall”. To be honest…..i didn’t do TOO much with it. I guess my creative juices weren’t flowing..?
Mandarine oranges with marachino cherries, "baby" black beans with short cheese shreds, mini white chocolate cherry muffin, goldfish, grapes, "tall" pear slices.
Pursey shocked me when she immediately took a piece of the maraschino cherry and tasted it and put it off to the side. HA! I thought she’d gobble those tiny things up! She made me proud though when she continued to “c’mon back” for little tastes of it now and again. I’m so glad she doesn’t seem to be much of a picky eater thus far…..
And a random food quote i saw and liked and wanted to include… “McDonalds announced it’s considering a more humane way of slaughtering its animals. You know they fatten them up and then kill them. You know the same thing they do to their customers, isn’t it?” -Jay Leno
Today i was in a rush so i was glad there was no “theme” to the muffin tin this week. Purse gobbled up most of the yogurt and grapefruit pieces and she’ll eat the rest of the tin later as a snack. Fun times.
Honey graham bears, PBJ sandwich, Citrus salad, vanilla yogurt with sprinkles, mixed crunchy crackers, grapes, cheese and tortilla cut outs.
So, the last few blogs i’ve had have been SUPER heavy. And, that’s all fine and dandy by me….if that’s where i’m at in the moment. I wanted to do something else on my blog that is a bit fun and lighthearted. It’s something I started a few months or so ago for Pursey and now I am going to start putting it on my blog! It’s called Muffin Tin meals. (On Muffin Tin Mondays!) Here’s where i got the idea: http://michellesjournalcorner.blogspot.com/search/label/Muffin%20Tin%20Monday This week, i didn’t follow the theme. It was a simple snack she wanted and i chose to throw something together fast….but stay tuned for more creative meals coming SOON!
This meal was: mandarin orange segments, cheerio dusted banana slices, pear slices, green olives, natural honey graham bears/crackers with Peanut Butter and Nutella, and Extra sharp cheddar cheese slices.
As usual, she gobbles most of it up. She loves her meals in a muffin tin! Check out the blog i got the idea from! There are tons of great ideas for you mom’s and dad’s of picky eaters…..(Purse isn’t picky but she does love to eat from a muffin tin).
