Muffin Tin Monday - June 11, 2012

Good Monday morning!  It is so nice to wake up to a nice sunny day (finally).  The past week has been so dreary and rainy.   It felt like I had the winter blues with 5 days of rain, rain, rain.  In the middle of that rainy week, I also cut out coffee from my mornings.  I switched to an organic dark roast coffee and it gave hubby and I some nasty acne!  Who knew that we would dealing with acne at almost 40?   I think the caffeine withdrawal affected me quite a bit.   Finally, my energy is increasing and my skin is getting better. 

With or without coffee, we have to keep going.  The kiddies were sick too.  I was battling the same bug.  Glad to be back on track today!  

Today is Nessa's Snack Day at preschool, so I just rounded up her favourites, as requested.

Today's snack:  all-beef hotdogs, sliced strawberries, cute mini strawberry and grape fruit skewers, cucumber slices and sliced baby carrots.  I'm still a little bummed that 2 of my silicone liners went missing at preschool from last week.  Oh well, back to using the paper liners. 

I stumbled across Schneider's Natural hot dogs at the supermarket.  They claimed that they only have natural ingredients, so I gave them a try.  We don't normally have hot dogs but I figure it is a nice change for Snack Day. 

According to the package, the ingredient list has only: beef, water, vinegar, sea salt, cane sugar, celery extract, spice, garlic powder and smoke.  Compared to the other brands, this list is short!  I was able to fit 5 wieners in 3 muffin cups!

  1. This looks really good! I really like the idea of a Muufin Tin Snack Menu. :) It's a bummer that your silicone liners went missing!

    Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog!


  2. Great tin! I don't drink coffee, but I do drink a Diet Pepsi every morning and I'm trying to give it up. It's soooo hard.

    1. The diet cola is so hard to kick as well! I went through that phase too! Very hard... while juggling family life. :)

  3. This is filled with such wonderfully colored foods! I love your tiny grapes!

  4. This looks yummy - I wish cucumber was one of MY daughter's favourites though! :)


Let me know what you think!
