Muffin Tin Dinner(s)

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

I completely forgot to post last weeks, so this is a catch up post. For those who are curious to know what a Muffin Tin Dinner is, it was started by Katy who then handed it over to Michelle when she moved overseas. Basically it is a meal in a muffin tin instead of a plate. I love it because it is a great way to use up any bits and bobs in the fridge and it is an easy way to give a balanced meal. It is also a great way to introduce new foods and if you have one of those kids who don't like their foods to touch it is perfect. I asked Ebi-kun why he likes MTDs and he said he likes the different themes. Win - win situation at dinner time :o)

So here we have an autumn themed MTD.
Starting with the white stuff and going clockwise - cottage cheese, simmered pumpkin, sweet potato, carrots, pasta and orange jelly in the middle.

This was last weeks, kebab them. I often make little kebabs with the cute picks I have got but this time I gave Ebi-kun the picks, The food was also the Sunday dinner leftovers, made for an interesting meal!
Top L-R roasted potatoes, roasted pepper, banana cake
Middle L-R boiled carrots, roasted chicken, gravy to dip-dip
Bottom L-R roasted pumpkin, roasted sweet potato.
It all went, he even asked for seconds.
Now this is last years Halloween tin, I have already had a request for severed fingers and eyeballs, I have been looking through Flickr and One Pretty Thing for more revolting inspiration....

And if you are looking for bento supplies, cute picks, egg mould and the such like, the info is here.
