Today is Muffin Tin Monday! There is no theme this week, and my poor little Muffin is sick AGAIN, so today I served her lunch in mini-muffin paper liners in a friand tin. That way it still looked big, but was actually very small, so as not to overwhelm her poor little tummy...
Also today I got three Surprises in the mail - woo hoo! Well, you know, not 100% surprises as such, since I had ordered this stuff, but still - FUN! So yes, I have officially taken delivery of my Very First Bento Equipment!!
I am hoping the rice moulds will a) encourage The Muffin to eat rice, and b) be able to be used for other things too.... Any ideas, anyone?
The little cutters are just the best thing ever - I actually received them two days ago, and have already used them a couple of times. Smaller than I thought they would be - which is a good thing. The Muffin is In Love with the little bird shape.
She is also In Love with the animal picks, especially the elephant, giraffe and chicken. So I had to use some of the picks in her Muffin Tin today:-
Top Row: Tinned peaches; vanilla yoghurt; two jellybeans from The Muffin's Christmas stash.
Bottom Row: Cheese with giraffe pick; salami sandwich; more cheese with elephant pick.
The After Shot:
Truly, I was amazed. Two hours before lunch, this child was throwing up in the doctor's office. I really didn't expect her to eat much at all, but she was SO excited to use the picks. So cute.
Go here to see what other mummies did this week!
Also: Oooooo, girly squeal!!! What fun - look what was in my third package today:
Now if only my little girl would get well - and stay that way - my day would be just about perfect!
