Muffin Tin Monday

Well last week was so much fun that I wanted to play along with Muffin Tin Monday from Another Lunch again. Today's theme is perfect picnic. With only one week of school left picnics in the park are right around the corner.

Perfect Picnic 
We typically go on 2 types of picnics. During the day we pick a park and play with friends. Sometimes our neighborhood plays movies in the park on Friday nights and we watch as a family. But now its summer and pool side picnics will be starting soon too. Can't wait to run around town with all of our friends.

In this lunch :
  • Top Row:
    • Popcorn - Pirates booty
    • Blanket - Checkered apple
    • Watermelon Wedges
  • Bottom Row:
    • Playful puppies - Rolled ham and turkey
    • Popsicles
Kindergarten Graduation 

Our big Green monkey is on his last week of school. Wednesday will be their ceremony and Friday is the last day. So only 3 days of lunches to make this week for him. Every year he amazes me with how much he grows, not only in skills useful in school, or physically getting bigger, but as a caring and funny little guy who just loves life and everyone in it. 

In this lunch :
  • Diplomas - Peanut butter and jelly rolled sandwiches with rainbow sourpatch ribbons
  • Alphabet pretzels
  • Cap and Books - Watermelon
  • Mortar board cap - cucumber on top of carrots
This is also the last day of voting for the Circle of Moms Top 25 Foodie Moms 2013 contest. Voting closes June 4th at 4pm PST. So please take a moment and click a vote for me. It is an honor and a thrill to be in this contest. Thank you to everyone who has supported me this whole year.


  1. Love your MTM! The blanket came out so good! I also love love love your graduation lunch! I have been trying to come up with ideas for my 5th grader and he would love your peanut butter and jelly diplomas - I might just steal that idea, lol!

    1. Thanks, and steal away :) My kiddo loved them, however instead of one PB and 1 jelly he requested both have both on them next time...picky picky :)

I have a link-up and button on my blog and hope that you will join us! I've really enjoyed looking at all your creative muffin tin creations.
