Muffin Tin Monday: Kabob Patterns


This week’s theme for Muffin Tin Monday is Kabobs.  I’ve also seen it spelled as kebab.  Weird.  Anyway, as usual Monday rolled around and I hadn’t planned for this muffin tin meal and I’m standing in the kitchen arguing with myself…

Oh, I’m just not going to do it this week.

But you know how much he loves it!

But I can’t think of anything, my fridge is bare, and I can’t figure out the correct spelling of kabob!

Stop complaining and just do it.

Stop telling me what to do!  Oh, hey I thought of something.

And just like that the light bulb went off and I had an idea…I could make patterns on the kabobs and turn it into a math lesson to boot! 

IMG_3464  Okay, I made a pattern of pb&j sandwich, grape and granola bar bite on three kabobs and left the last sandwich triangle and some extra grapes and granola for him to copy the pattern on his own kabob.  Not very pretty, but he’s a boy, he’s not into pretty.  ;)

IMG_3465 IMG_3467 Trickier than it looks lol!

IMG_3473 Mmm, kabobs make even the humble pb&j so very tasty.

Head over to Michelle’s for more Muffin Tin Madness, uh, I mean meals lol.  Fun stuff indeed. 


  1. Good for you for doing it anyway! I am one of the kebab people, and it looked *off* to me, too. I was just too lazy to look it up! ;)

  2. Love the commentary in this post!

    Your kabobs look great despite the "bare" fridge:-).

  3. Great post. I can relate to your discussion with yourself...

  4. great idea, nice that you made a learning tool w/ the patterns!

  5. Great idea. And I'm sure there will be lots of sword slinging with my boy's kebobs too!

  6. What a great idea! My kids had fun playing with the kebab sticks as well.

  7. I had the same thoughts about which way to spell kebab/kebob. After going back and forth they both looked wierd so I just copied Michelle's. =) Great idea to turn this meal into a pattern lesson.


Thanks for stopping by!
