Muffin Tin Monday: Favorite Foods

I only have time for a quick MTM today.  I'm needing to clear up time later this week, so I'll be tackling three zones today as well as prepping some stuff for Cub Scouts tonight.

So: this week's MTM is themed Favorite foods.  I honestly don't think there's many foods that Chaos won't eat (wasabi, perhaps....) and Doc is getting to be just as exploratory with his food choices.  The differences in amounts that my boys will eat become very obvious here.  Just keep in mind that Chaos is 7, trapped in the body of a 10 year old athlete and Doc is only 2 and prefers to graze all day long.  These were made almost entirely of left-overs.  And yes, Chaos LOVES green veggies.

Left-Doc's dinner: apple wedges, peanut butter shimmer, turkey rolls, ear-shaped pasta with alfredo sauce, bunny cookies, bread stick.  Right- Chaos's dinner: tangerine, peanut butter shimmer, broccoli with asiago, apple wedges, bread stick, fettucine alfredo with spinach, turkey, fresh pineapple.


  1. This lunch looks wonderful. I love all the healthy things in it.

  2. Thanks. I love how the boys like minimally processed and fresh foods. : ) They don't even mind that the peanut butter is a "no added sugar or fat" kind. I seriously go through about 4 pounds of broccoli a week with Chaos. He'd eat it at every meal if he could. He doesn't like it with butter or anything- just steamed with a little grated parm or Asiago cheese or stir-fried with tofu and soy sauce. lol!

  3. My picky eater will surprisingly and thankfully eat lots of green things like broccoli, peas, beans and now finally lettuce. It is nice that your boys will eat so many things. Happy Monday!

  4. Yum! I'm dying to know what a peanut butter shimmer is! And that breadstick is making me drool! (I'm a carbs gal!)
    It's great having good eaters! I go to my sister's house, and her 4yo SCREAMS if you put anything unapproved on her plate, even if she claimed she was done eating already. My "you don't have to eat it, but you DO have to put up with it on your plate" attitude has paid off, and mine tries more new foods, or eats them after forgetting that she had previously refused, on principle!
