This Muffin Tin Monday is a bit more substantial than usual again, because the school holidays mean that The Muffin can have her MTM for lunch. We decided on an Under The Sea theme this week:
Top Row: Mini chorizo cut to vaguely resemble an octopus (two, actually); Cheese sandwich "dolphin". Don't judge me, I cut it out by hand in about ten seconds with a four year old attached to my leg ("Mummy I'm hungry. Have you made my dolphin sandwich yet??") Also drawing dolphins has never been my forte; Fish-shaped fish nugget. Do we call them nuggets when they are fish, or is that just chicken? Whatever. I think on the box they are called "Fish Flips" or something equally witty. I used to like the ones that were called "Little Fishies" - essentially exactly the same product, I just thought it was a cuter name. I know, I'm a child.
Bottom Row: Banana and orange zest crabs (yes, I am aware they look like six-legged spiders. Clearly crabs are not my forte either. The Muffin loved them, so there); Coral (ie yoghurt with pink & yellow nonpareils) and another banana and orange zest crab; Seaweed, consisting of rocket leaves and actual seaweed (nori, cut into little strips).
The After Shot:
The Muffin was extremely pleased with this lunch. She was absolutely intrigued by the idea that some of her "seaweed" was actual seaweed - which is actually a little weird, because we've eaten sushi in front of her heaps of times (although she won't eat it herself), and told her what "the black stuff" is. Go figure. Anyway, I didn't really expect her to try it, but to my surprise she ate three pieces of it.
