Muffin Tin Mondays, ABCs!

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

I know we've done this theme before, but I have certain foods that just need to be eaten! I'm off to Chicago later this week and I wanted certain fruits/veggies eaten before they end up being wasted. I really don't enjoy wasting food.

Anyhow, we opted for an alphabet theme this week!

Starting from the top left and going across the top row, then bottom:
A is for Apples
B is for Bananas, Blackberries & Blueberries
C is for Carrots, Celery & Cucumber
D is for Dip (roasted red pepper & tomato is the fave this week)
E is for Egg (half a hardboiled egg, decorated to look like a cat)
F is for Fish-shaped sandwich (tuna FISH salad on Nature's Own Honey Wheat)

Be sure to check out Muffin Tin Monday for other fun lunches!


  1. Oh dear, I love this alphabet theme muffin tin lunch idea so much! Isn't it a good way to make sure we have variety of food in the lunch! :D

  2. The alphabet is a great theme. The flowers and egg are so cute.

  3. I love the fish and egg! Great tin!

  4. I love the alphabet theme! Great lunch!

  5. Love how you have the B and C things all going together well even though you've 3 words each, this must have been a yummy, fun AND healthy meal!

  6. I love the ABC themed tins, there's always so many ways you can be creative. Looks delish!

  7. I saw Fish & Eggs and thought, the kids are eating Caviar. There goes the lunch budget!

  8. I love the egg molds and purchased them, but started wondering about the lead content - do you know if they are held to a certain standard? I am just a concerned mom.

  9. I don't know, I no longer have the packets from mine. They are at least meant for food, so I'm hoping that they are safe.

    Writing a quick tutorial on the cute face eggs as soon as I retake the pics. Those are definitely food-safe, they are all knife work.

  10. I love your alphabet theme and your kitty cat egg is super cute!

  11. So cute! Do you have a recipe for the dip? Or is it store bought?

  12. Love the alphabet theme! =) That never gets old. B would love that. I should try that next time.

  13. I'm new to MTM, and a little confused. What did you use the egg mold for?

    I love the kitty egg. It's dear, and I can't wait to see how you made it.

  14. @SingleMom - Dip recipes are up, had to type them out.

    @Tara - I didn't use egg molds in this tin, but I have in the past. These are just regular eggs decorated.

  15. What do you use to draw the faces on the eggs?
