Muffin Tin Meal

Last week in conjunction with our reading of "How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World" we had a muffin tin apple sampling.
I went to the store and got one of every variety they had on hand.  In the top left and right we have Granny Smith, the middle top is Red Delicious, the bottom left and right are Fuji, and the bottom middle is a Gala.  The kids liked comparing the sizes, and we talked about how the Fuji and Granny Smith were so big they needed two spots, and Bitsy surprised me by noticing that there were more slices of the Red Delicious then the Gala, so the Gala must have been the bigger of the two, but it was still smaller than the Fuji and Granny Smith.  All of that from apples in a muffin tin!
Check out Muffin Tin Mom for more of these fun meals.

That's pretty cool. My girl likes trying different types of apples, too.

So great! I love it when so many things are learned/absorbed so naturally. I'm going to borrow this next week when we do How to see an apple pie and see the world! Hope that's ok.

I am hoping to take JDaniel to an orchard gather apples to test.

Samantha, I'm glad you liked the idea, I hope your little ones have as much fun as we did! The whole apple pie week was a lot of fun for us.
