Muffin Tin Monday - Easter Leftovers!

One of the things I love about Muffin Tin Monday is the opportunity to use up all those little bits of leftovers in the fridge. Today's Muffin Tin contains quite a few leftovers from yesterday's Easter Sunday lunch...

Top Row: Slices of orange; Mini hot cross bun; Pastry-covered cocktail sausage (shudder).
Middle: Easter Eggs from her present stash.
Bottom Row: Slices of chicken schnitzel; Baked beans; Bunny-shaped egg.

Even Husband and I had Muffin Tin Meals today. This is his:

Leftover salad, chicken schnitzel, orange, baked beans, mini hot cross bun, curried egg. Mine was essentially the same, but without the baked beans (I have never liked them, even as a kid).

And The Muffin ensured that noone missed out:

Happy Muffin Tin Monday, Frog!

The After Shot:

Husband and I were just about ready to jump out of the window by the end of this. The Muffin took An Hour and Ten Minutes to eat this lunch. I kid you not. And I actually have no idea why, because she did enjoy it, and she did seem to be eating most of the time. But wow, it just took FOREVER.

This isn't usually an issue for us unless we're trying to get her to eat something she doesn't like. So here's a question for you: what do you do when your kid is reeeeeeaaallly slooooow eating their meal?

My 4 year old actually eats much slower than my 20 month old twins. I think it must be a weird phase...

I love how pretty the colors of this lunch are! The pastel muffin cups really make the lunch stand out! Loved your hot cross bun! I did a Resurrection Theme, and wish I would've thought to do something with a cross on it! I love how all the muffin tin moms enhance my creativity! :)
