Muffin Tin Monday - May 21, 2012

Today is Victoria Day, which is a Canadian public holiday to commemorate Queen Victoria's birthday.  Since the kids do not have school, this is generally the first weekend to kick off camping season!  We didn't go anywhere far this long weekend.  Hubby had a maternity patient that was due any day now, so we stayed home for a nice relaxing weekend. 

For this week's Muffin Tin Monday, I thought it would be nice to pack a nice picnic lunch!  It was overcast and cloudy, but that didn't stop us from going out to enjoy family time together.

I grabbed my trusty Tupperware container, got some silicone muffin cups and started scrounging around the fridge and pantry.  Luckily, I had some nice leftovers from yesterday's breakfast and dinner.  

I packed some leftover breakfast sausage, cheerios, last night's asparagus & carrot stirfry, oven roasted corn, fresh sugar snap peas, marble cheese slices and red grapes.

What a tasty lunch!

Ready to go!  During transport, some of the food fell out of the liners and some of the food got jumbled around.  Next time, I'll have to find a container that fits food tighter to keep everything in its place.

The long weekend went by pretty fast. The kiddies enjoyed a nice outing the other day on our beach at Horse Lake, BC.  We grabbed our camping chairs, packed a lunch and enjoyed what nature had to offer.
