Honest Mom Makes Fun Dinner

I know there are a million moms out there who have taken a muffin tin and served their kids lunch or dinner that way.  Very clever, get them to eat a lot of different things, simple clean up, there's even a built in cup (or 6!) for dips!  I'm tempted to eat my own dinner this way some nights.

I may not be the first to do this, but I am the first to admit that while this is fun for my kids, it's super easy for me.  Basically, I'm owning up to being lazy when it has come to some lunch and dinners these days and my kids are none the wiser.

I have neither the time, nor desire, to cut up cute little sandwich animals, adorned with shredded carrot and raisins.  Yes, they look fun, and yes, I probably have a dozen ideas pinned to boards on Pinterest, but will I actually ever do it?  No.  And am I bad mom because I leave the crusts on my kids PB&J?  Hell no.

Some cold peas, cut up hot dog and a squirt of ketchup, toss on some raspberries for good measure.  They've never had a better picnic dinner.  And it doesn't hurt that I have Beauty and the Beast on TV (we missed our typical Friday Family Movie Night!)

Honesty and happy kids.
Win win.

I've never fed my daughter in a muffin tray. So smart!

I think I missed out as a kid. I never was served a meal in this manner. Might have to give it a try myself now as an adult!
