Muffin Tin Mondays: Orange!

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

First off, sorry that there are no pictures with this post.  Hopefully, I will find where my darling daughter stashed my USB converter-thing so that I can upload the pictures of this week's Muffin Tin Monday!

I have become addicted, as predicted, to muffin tin shopping.  Apparently, they are everywhere!  And today, wandering around Target, I found some silicone cups in the dollar bins.  They had regular cups and butterfly-shaped cups in beautiful spring colors, so I grabbed a bunch!  I know now that there is no such thing as too many muffin tins/cups!

When we got home, I did a quick rinse of the cups and loaded two of them with chickpea curry, which is a rusty kind of orange, thanks to curry powder, ginger, and carrots.  I loaded another two with homemade applesauce that I tinted orange with food dye--a pastel orange.  Then, the remaining cups were loaded with other colors.  We had red grapes in one cup, and a no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookie in the other.

So, picture, if you will, a green plate, six silicone muffin cups in bright pink, yellow, and blue, and an array of orange, red, and brown food.

The victory for the day was that Adrienne told me we couldn't do McDonald's for lunch because it was "MUFFIN TIN MONDAY, MOM!"


Here are the pictures of our muffin cups yesterday!


  1. I can picture your tin! It looks great! I tinted applesauce too.

  2. I got those cups too, the butterfly and flower ones, I love them and can't wait to use them for MTM too.
