Muffin Tin Monday

The theme for this week's Muffin Tin Monday is "We Forgot It Was Monday Again And Were Therefore Forced To Somehow Incorporate An Omelette Dinner Into A Muffin Tin". Catchy, eh?

Here's what I came up with:

Top Row: Half a clementine; Banana slices.

Middle Row: Omelette. There is finely chopped spinach mixed in with the eggs (which is why it's kind of green), and the omelette is filled with ham, cheese, olives and peas. I cooked a whole omelette for her, but just added a few slices of it to the tin, figuring I could refill as she ate.

Bottom Row: Carrot flowers; Cucumber flowers.

The After Shot:

I was quite pleased with the vegetable content of this dinner, as sometimes we still find vegies quite the challenge. The Muffin is pretty good with pumpkin, carrot, etc, but not so great with greens. The fact that she happily munched her way through two types of green vegies, plus was coerced into eating a couple of pieces of a third (the cucumber), makes me happy. She ate almost the whole omelette (ie. just over twice as much as what is shown in the "before" tin above), so I didn't push her too much with the other foods. I found a carrot on the floor afterward, so actually only three were eaten, not four. But for me, this dinner was a big success.

I love the carrot and cucumber flowers! No matter what I try, my son will not try a carrot!

Briana have you tried purple carrots? You could tell him they're something else until he's tried them...? (I'm not above a bit of Creative Lying where it comes to vegetables!)

That omelette sounds really good! I would never have thought to mix in spinach. I will have to try that out!
