"What is it?" she asked.
"You'll just have to wait and see!"
Having built up her anticipation, I got to work on a 12 course meal. About five or ten minutes later, I was done. Here it is:
Now, I can't take credit for this cute Muffin Tin Meal idea. I've read about it on multiple blogs--I think the first place I saw it was Jonah Lisa's blog. That was forever and a day ago, and I finally tried it. I dug through my cupboards and fridge, and these are the 12 courses I came up with (top to bottom, starting on the left):
- Sesame sticks
- Ritz-type crackers
- Animal crackers
- Ranch dressing (dip for #12)--Newman's Own brand doesn't have MSG
- Cheese (shaped like Mickey, Sargento brand)
- Wheat Thins Thin Crisps
- Tamari roasted pumpkin seeds
- Baby cut carrots
All four food groups are represented, all in kid-friendly forms. Zoodle still only has two teeth (but #3 is trying its best to break through!), so his meal was only 10 courses--no carrots or ranch dressing.
