Muffin Tin Monday

My, oh my has it been a very long time since we have enjoyed a Muffin Tin Monday meal! Despite being Madison's not best mom ever today (room cleaning day!) I thought it would be a nice break for her to have a special lunch. Today's theme was muffin tin liners so that definitely made this super easy for me! 

On the menu today: Tomato surprise, yogurt parfait (vanilla yogurt, frozen blueberries & Cheerios), half a toast cinnamon raisin bagel thin with peanut butter and a clementine.

If you have a Disney child like me chances are you know who Ze Fronk is and maybe have even tested out a recipe or two of his with your little one. Maddie has been pleading with me to make her tomato surprise for a few days now so of course I felt a bit nice and went for it. The original recipe calls for cottage cheese but we are not a cottage cheese family so I subbed in some cream cheese instead. I used a paring knife to slice the top off of a few cherry tomatoes and then squeezed out the seeds and scraped a bit to make room for the cheese that I piped in with a plastic baggie. A hit of course for a tomato loving child!

Stop by Muffin Tin Mom's and check out some other great muffin tin meals!

JDaniel would love the tomatoes with cottage cheese. They look like flowers. Maybe I can borrow your ideas for a flower themed tin.

Yummy looking lunch. I must go find out who Ze Fronk is. Happy Monday!

The tomatoes almost look like toadstools! And they sound yummy! I'd use cream cheese too (for the same reasons!) What a fun lunch!

Great lunch. I think cream cheese sounds better with tomatoes. We'll have to try these.

yum to the tomato surprise!
I think I might try something similar with raspberries and cream cheese/powdered sugar filling. MMMM!
