Yes! It is Muffin Tin Monday - but if you're not interested in that, scroll down a bit, because today I am giving you two posts for the price of one, and the other one is an awesome recipe for REAL Melting Moments!
But back to lunchtime - the theme for the next three weeks is Holidays (ie Christmas, Hannukah, etc), which means for us it's Christmas!
The Muffin is super-excited about the approach of Christmas, and it's really cute as it's the first time she's really had any long-term excitement/anticipation about it. Such fun!
So here's our first Christmas-themed Muffin Tin Meal - a Snowman Scene:
Top Row: Apple stars and banana slices; Sparkly cheese shooting star (with edible glitter - you can't really see it in the photo, but The Muffin thought it was awesome), also some stray banana slices; Chocolate egg (Disney Princess Kinder-Surprise-type thing, already belonging to The Muffin - sigh. I swear one day I'm going to do one of these without sugar in it).
Bottom Row: Plain yoghurt with a few Christmas sprinkles on top; Snowman shaped Vegemite & cheese sandwich with sprinkle face & buttons; Tree/Plant made out of spinach leaves.
The After Shot:
I know you're probably thinking that the spinach leaves were ambitious to start with, but she actually a) requested at the shop the other day that we purchase "leaves" specifically for MTM, and b) reminded me whilst I was making the lunch "don't forget the leaves, Mummy!" But in the end, she only ate two.
Then again... She ate two! It's all in the way you look at it, I guess.
This was a very popular tin. Check out what other people did by heading over to the Muffin Tin Mom - hey, why not make a tin yourself next week? :o)
