Muffin Tin Meal: Half-hearted Jungle

Muffin Tin Meal: half-hearted jungle

The theme for Muffin Tin Monday this week was “It’s a Jungle Out There!” and even though we were freshly back from vacation with a mostly empty fridge, I decided to give it a go. Here’s what I gave Augie for his lunch:

Top row:

  • sugar snap peas with flower picks for decoration — the idea here was that this was a flowering jungle bush
  • leftover rice from Sunday night dinner with a butterfly food divider
  • strawberries with a paper pineapple pick — er…do they have pineapples in the jungle? I think I was stretching here.

Bottom row:

  • yummy garlic croutons — there is no jungle significance to these. I just put them in because Augie asked for them.
  • carrots with sun-dried tomato hummus — again, no jungle-y significance
  • leftover chicken satay with an elephant pick

So yeah — I may not have knocked the jungle theme out of the park, but my kid liked it well enough.

The meal was served in a 6 cup muffin tin that I use exclusively for muffin tin meals.

  • I love it! I like snap peas with flower picks best – it’s totally jungly AND pretty.
    It’s funny, when I was scheduled the jungle theme I thought it would be easy peasy to do, and then when it came to it I was a little stumped. My main foodie thing was going to be a lion and it dawned on me lions don’t live in the jungle. Whoops! đŸ™‚

    Forgive the ignorance but how do you serve snap peas? Did you steam first? I just found snap peas at the imported section of our supermarket, and I would like to introduce it to my toddler. I’m just not familiar how it should be served. Thanks.
