Another Supper Saved by a Muffin Tin

We are having such a hard time convincing Grace to eat these days. It's unreal.

It's not that she refuses to eat everything. She happily eats ice cream, blueberry cereal bars, oatmeal, and fruit.

But if it looks like supper? Forget it.

So… muffin tins have come to my rescue.

Most recently, I have been deconstructing whatever pasta dish or casserole we're having and putting the components into a muffin tin.

She happily gobbles it up when I serve it that way, and it only takes a minute or two to pick everything apart and drop it into the wells.

Garden Pasta in a Muffin Tin

This Muffin Tin Meal started out as Garden Pasta. I always use whatever veggies I have on hand to make Garden Pasta.This time , it happened to be yellow squash, zucchini, carrots, and broccoli.

  • Bottom left and bottom right – Penne pasta
  • Bottom center – Yellow squash
  • Top left – Broccoli
  • Top center – Zucchini
  • Top left – CarrotsEating a muffin tin meal
  • Pink flower cup – Grated Parmesan cheese (We top our pasta with this, but I gave it to Grace in a cup in case she wanted to eat it separately.)

The biggest hit of this particular meal was the little animal picks. Monica sent them to us for the Muffin Tin Swap, and this was the first time I'd gotten to use them.

Grace used the picks as utensils, eating the pieces right from the picks. That made me laugh.

  1. I too work this way with my boys. I find it fascinating that they eat the veggies alone but never mixed with other things. and we all know things on a stick taste so much better.

  2. That's great that she'll gobble of her muffin tin meals! Presentation is everything! 🙂 Grace looks so cute and so very serious in her picture. LOL Adorable.

  3. Glad supper works this way. Way to think outside the box (and into a muffin tin)! 🙂 Love the animal picks, too!!
