Mama chosen snacks attractively and irresistibly arranged in a muffin tin, genius. I am so in love with this idea. I wish I could pay tribute to the blog that I learned it from, but I can't for the life of me remember where I saw it! But isn't this so good?
We tend to be a two meal a day family on the weekends, much of the time. Often we'll have a pretty big breakfast on the late side of morning, then we'll sit down to a second big meal around 3:00 or 4:00 in the afternoon. In between there is the activity of the day and plenty of grazing. Before anyone even starts looking for the ice cream or reaching for a handful of cookies... have this at the ready. Just set it up and place it on the kitchen, picnic, or coffee table and step back. Kiddos (and spouses) who are looking for a little something will be thankful for your effort, amused by the presentation, and most importantly, they will be well fed and happy!
I specifically have been keeping my thrifty eye open for a six muffin pan because I didn't think I could easily come up with twelve snacks, so glad I found one! Of course, if you have a larger family just use a twelve muffin pan and double up on six choices.
Wasn't that fun? I am so easily amused...
