Pizza Muffins

Have I ever mentioned my love for the Dollar Tree? I can pick up holiday themed food picks and the cupcake liners for $1! Can't beat that!

This morning I was feeling a little bored with sandwiches. The minions? They really didn't care. They will eat sandwiches every day of the week... Except when they want hot lunch. This is also my effort in keeping them from wanting school lunch. Something different is good.

This morning I made little pizza muffins! Last week I saw a post that used dough, eggs, and bacon to make breakfast muffins. I thought that would make a pretty good lunch item if I changed the contents. So my pizza muffins have a little sauce, cheese, and pepperoni.  Add a little egg wash on top and they are ready to go in the toaster oven.

For lunch we have carrots, grapes, mini chocolate chips, sunflower seeds with dried prunes, and the pizza muffins.

For snack we have raisins, banana chips, sunflower seeds (a current favorite) and pumpkin seeds.

Here is the link to the post on the breakfast muffins.

You certainly don't need to use the canned muffins.  This would work too. You can make some so they are ready to go for future use. Or you can use the leftover dough to make rolls for dinner. Either way, it all works out in the end.

Here is a moment of happiness for everyone, the best of Grumpy Cat. I love Grumpy Cat.

Darth Vader

I popped some popcorn (in a pot) last night. I decided the boy needed a bit of change in their snack. 

I am trying to pace myself with the cookie cutters. Then the Star Wars light saber food picks came from Amazon. If you want them, I suggest looking around for the cheapest one on Amazon. I paid about $6 for 12 of them. I have seen them as high as $12 for 12.

Under the cheese stick is a combination of peanuts and chocolate covered raisins.

Will Dance For Brains

I was a little bored. The minions wanted zombies again. Luckily for me, some new cookie cutters came. I had ordered some smaller ones. One happened to be a brain. Yes, Ebay is becoming an addiction. Anyway, I pulled out the dancing zombie cookie cutter and my brain cookie cutter. Both are peanutbutter and jelly sandwiches. Karl wanted the jewel picks today. Behind the string cheese are peanuts. 

Snack consists of banana chips and grapes.

Karl requested the 1up mushrooms for lunch. They are ham sandwiches. We also have mandarin oranges, tomatoes, cucumber (no one will eat that but...) string cheese, and chocolate covered raisins.

Karl has been asking for a kiwi. We have kiwi, a baby banana, and pretzels.

I used my new Mario and mushroom cookie cutters today on a ham sandwich. I also have a yogurt tube, carrots, grapes, and a fruit snack.
