MTM ~ More dips and sauces

Ok so we had dips and sauces for two full meals this week. lol! But the first time around I got so many great ideas that I had to use them, or like bubbles I would loose them. Maybe I need to start making a MTM notebook! Wouldn't that be cool? Michelle, what do you think? Do you have something like that?

So for Dips and Sauces round 2, we had:

First Row: Raw honey, Trader Joe's BBQ sauce, yellow mustard

Second Row: Homemade thousand island dressing, ranch dressing (Trader Joes again), and Thai Peanut Sauce

This is what we had to dip in them. Roasted summer veggies and all natural chicken nuggets with sword picks (cuz picks make any meal better).

We also had company! This is our sweet friend Shelby. She was over all afternoon and had dinner with us. She loved MTM! The kids tried everything. Cyan even decided that zucchini got a 50%/50% ok this time around. Mushrooms were still a no, but onions were ok. Esp dipped in BBQ sauce.

Dips and Sauces Round 3! Dessert!!

First Row: Strawberry Jam (Trader Joe's), left over frosting, homemade peach jam.

Second Row: Peanut butter, sprinkles, and cream cheese.

This one went over famously, as I knew it would. All three kids loved it! Logan esp, liked the dipping...

But even the girls liked the treat. I loved watching them find new combinations like cream cheese and peach jelly. Wow... that one was good!

Happy Muffin Tin Monday!

The sword picks are great! JediBoy would love those... where did you find them?

And yes, the pretzel rod dipping tray would be a HUGE hit here too. Thanks for sharing! :)

Wow! Amazing! The pretzel one w. the dessert-y dips sounds SO good. I might have to give that a go w. my little one sometime soon! Glad everyone enjoyed!

Great job! I can tell everyone enjoyed it. I think homemade thousand island is one of the first things I learned to "cook" as a kid lol. Yum.

The pizza rolls are super simple! I just jazz up a package of crescent rolls (you know the ones in the tube that pop when you open them -- regular or reduced fat). You can either make eight rolls (using each individual triangle) or make 4 rolls (combining two triangles to make a rectangle). For the muffin tin meal I only made 4 rolls. Take your dough, cover it with a layer of pepperoni, then put some shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the pepperoni (a little goes a long way). Then roll up your pizza roll, place on a baking sheet. I bake them according to the directions on the tube (although sometimes it takes a little longer if you stuff them with a lot of stuff). Enjoy! The possibilities are endless. You could probably copy all of the combinations that they make for "Hot Pockets". I like the fluffy, flaky texture of the crescent rolls better. ;-)
