When I think about a themed Muffin Tin Meal, I usually start by writing down a bunch of words associated with the theme.
For example, the next theme is springtime: birds and nests
birds and nests
Thinking outside the box:
Different types of birds:
robin, blue jay, finch, love birds
- Then I think about what kind of foods creating the meal might entail:
- I try to match what I have in my cupboards to that list and see if I can create the theme around what I already have, if not I supplement if needed.
- I then get to making the muffin tin: sometimes the process is more organic and it just sort of comes together and other times I am planning it out cup by cup what I am going to include.
Hope this helps you out a little bit as you think about next week's theme
