Real Simple

I love watching people's expressions when I walk through the zoo, a store, anywhere really toting 3 toddlers and 2 preschoolers along. I am not yelling, 99% of the time no children are crying, and everyone is having a good time. The only mildly stressful time is lunch time. Nothing like trying to prepare food for 5 hungry, tired, whiney kids. One of which (usually AJ) is hanging on my leg in the kitchen begging for scraps. Oye!


In comes my savior- the Muffin Pan. Yes, this wonderful pan does not cook muffins in this house. Instead it holds a wide variety of fruits, veggies, breads, crackers, and even the occasional cookie. It is so much easier to chop up some thick pieces of meat, cut up some fruit, and just let the kids pick what they want to eat.
Simple huh?

Here are some other sites that sing the praises of this creative way to feed lunch:
