Muffin Tin Mondays: Best of Intentions

This post is part of Muffin Tin Mondays at Muffin Tin Mom

When I saw that this week's theme was red, I was extremely excited.  Visions of strawberries, beets, and grapes danced in my head.  Ah, if only I could have gone beyond the "visions" and actually purchased the produce I planned.

Instead, I wasn't feeling too well this weekend, and neither, for that matter, were the kids.  Instead, we pampered ourselves by going on a scenic drive and staying home to eat a lot of good food.  Somehow, the grocery store just didn't figure into the end of last week or the weekend.  I'm just happy I managed to snag a muffin tin earlier in the week.

Oh, well.  Our muffin tins had to be satisfied with blackberry jell-o (which has a reddish tint), brats and ketchup, and some gluten-free, egg-free noodles and marinara sauce.

Despite my lack of follow-through, the kids once again enjoyed their muffin tin lunches, so we'll count it in the win column.


  1. I think it came out well. JDaniel loves brats. We had the beets or should I say I put them in his tin.

  2. Wow you must have a heck of a time cooking anything! My FIL is gluten free and I am currently dairy free. Good luck and good tins

  3. Blackberry jell-o sounds yummy- I will have to look for a recipe!

  4. I think they look great. I was thinking about beets too! when my daughter was younger she loved beats and would take them to school as a snack.

  5. Hope you're feeling better soon!

  6. you've got more red than me! it looks great!
