Muffin Tin Monday - Purple

Phew! To be honest I'm getting a bit sick of The Colours of The Rainbow... The Muffin isn't though, and this is The Moment She Has Been Waiting For - her favourite colour is purple, and she has had the dessert section of this tin planned for weeks. Anyway, this is the last all-one-colour tin we will be doing for a while, so get ready for something a lot more colourful next week!
So here is yesterday's Muffin Tin Monday after-kindy snack:
Top Row: Frozen blackberries; Purple grapes; Blueberry & yoghurt homemade icypole.

Bottom Row: Carrot sticks (purple carrots grown in our garden); Roasted beetroot & yoghurt dip; Currants (which I explained used to be purple when they were grapes. She has been told this before, but had obviously forgotten, as she was fascinated).

The After Shot:


We Were Clearly Not In The Mood For Carrots Today. She did actually carry on about how yummy they were with the dip when she bit into the first one, but then only ended up eating two. Go figure. Incidentally, I made more dip than this, and found out last night that it works really well as pasta sauce with a bit of prosciutto, spinach, mushroom & feta cheese - yuuuuum...

To see what other mums did this week, click on over to The Muffin Tin Mom's blog - but come back here in a few days time - there will be cake!
