Muffin Tin Monday, Cooking Party!

Audrey invited friends over to share a Muffin Tin Monday lunch. We made a simple muffin batter and invited the kids to add their own flavorings. Since it was lunch we kept the selections to savory choices:

  • scrambled eggs
  • pureed spinach
  • grated cheese
  • pork sausage
  • crumbled bacon
  • chopped tomato
These selections went over well and the children readily placed additions in their small bowl of batter. We cooked the muffins and then set them out in the dining room, picnic style. That is when chaos took over. Not many of the children ended up eating but I am not sure if it was the noise or the new lunch item. It might also have been that they devoured the muffins I baked the previous night and were not hungry.

Check out the other Muffin Tin Monday creations to see if others had a more positive experience this week. 

And Happy MLK Day! We are taking the day off (Audrey is out of school anyway) and enjoying the day. Starting with a nice breakfast celebrating the life of Dr. King. Audrey has learned a few things in school and we checked out a book at the library. Her daddy came into the bedroom after reading it to her and shook his head. When I asked his problem he said he could not come up with a good way to explain segregation to a four year old.

  1. Fun idea! My kids always eat less at social occasions! There's just too much competition for their attention!

  2. What a cute idea! We're thinking about having a cooking party, and we might just have to incorporate some muffin tins. Thanks for sharing.

  3. such a fun idea!!! the possibilities are endless! hows the weather for you guys?

  4. These look really yummy! I need to think more about adding savory foods to baked goods.

  5. Thanks for stopping by! And I commend you for all the cooking you let your kiddo help with. I'm too much of a control freak, and as much as I love my boy's help, it's sometimes easier to just do it on my own :)


Audrey wants to hear from you!
