I saw a cute picture somewhere of an egg cooked in a red pepper slice. At the store I spotted red peppers and explained my idea to the girls. They seemed open to it so we purchased the red pepper. Come Muffin Tin Monday time we were all stumped about what to eat. I had recently cleaned the fridge and knew there was little exciting to eat in there. Maurene spotted Eggland Best's eggs and decided we should have those for lunch. And that is when I remembered the red pepper.
Maurene cracked the egg while I sliced the red pepper. Audrey decided we needed a little lettuce from our cute leaves in the pot on our counter. It got cold so we brought them in and just never ate many. They are too cute to eat.
|They got really cold.|
Also decided by Maurene was the orange and raisins. Audrey added a desire for cantaloupe and I added ham and pineapple. It was a collaborative effort!
|Maurene peeled the orange.|
|Egg in a red pepper!|
|Audrey wanted her picture with the meal.|
The egg was really good! Maurene, the eternal toddler picky eater, would not try hers so I got it. Audrey ate the egg out of the red pepper but did not care for the pepper. All I can ask is that they try! After requesting the lettuce neither girl ate any. At least they are starting to ask.
As always, we are submitting this to Muffin Tin Monday. Check out the other amazing meals!
