Muffin Tin Monday – Leftovers

Today’s MTM theme was leftovers and while I had leftovers in the fridge I really didn’t want to eat them today. So I took a slightly different direction (but still used some of those leftovers) and created a “Make Your Own Salad” Muffin Tin.

I put lettuce in the middle of a big plate and filled the muffin tins with yummy toppings Aubrey could add to create her own salad. There was one rule – she had to use at least one item from each tin.Here is what we had for lunch:
Lettuce, chicken, pepperoni, tomatoes, olives, carrots, cheese, croutons, ranchHere is what Aubrey’s salad looked like:Parker & Piper got to play along too.Don’t forget to visit Michelle at Muffin Tin Mom to see other creative muffin tins were made using leftovers.
