Muffin Tin Monday - Butterflies

This week's Muffin Tin Monday was supposed to be Red White and Blue themed, but as Indepedence Day is not an Australian holiday, and also because blue food would have required forward planning, and I was in a rush and completely disorganised, we chose instead (right at the Last Minute) to do a Butterfly theme:

Top Row: Clementine butterflies; Butterfly apple slices.

Middle Row: Half-hearted attempt at butterfly-shaped rice cake with Vegemite; Easter egg from The Muffin's stash (justification: butterflies lay eggs. I pointed this out to The Muffin after she had started eating, and she totally adopted the idea as her own: "oh yes Mummy, that is why I chose it" - hmm. Maybe, but I have my doubts. More likely she chose it because she fancied some chocolate).

Bottom Row: Tamarillo, chopped up small; Yoghurt with vanilla and butterfly sprinkles.

The After Shot: I forgot to take one! So you'll just have to take my word for it. She ate everything, except the tamarillo. This was a new fruit for her (and me!), and she was suspicious from the get-go. "Mummy that fruit does not look very nice. What are all those black bits?" I tried to explain that they were not black, they were dark red, and for my trouble I received The Dark Look Of Suspicious Disbelief. Anyway, I convinced her to try a bit, and she immediately pulled a horrendous face and squawked "Eeeeeuuurgh!" Which I guess means "no thank you, that is not to my taste". Oh well, I can't complain too much - I didn't like it either! (although I did refrain from saying "eeeeuuurgh").
