Muffin Tin Monday - Ballet Shoes!

Whoops! I totally forgot to post my Muffin Tin Monday meal yesterday! We did make one though. As we were going to buy my little ballerina her Very First Pair of Real Ballet Shoes, I decided on a Ballet Shoes theme:

Top Row: Ham ballet shoes (made with cookie cutter); Spinach leaf tutu (stuck together with Vegemite. Looks a bit like a Tinkerbell dress, come to think of it - hmmm, must remember that); Cranberry muffin (gasp - what's this? An actual muffin in a muffin tin???)

Bottom Row: Carrot sticks; Leftover macaroni cheese (with peas & spinach); Banana pointe shoes.

I am Vomiting that I did not get a separate photo of the banana pointe shoes - they were a last minute addition to the tin, and they were so awesome! Because I had (out of laziness) cut the endy bit off the banana, instead of extracting The Dreaded Black Bit with my fingers, the ends of the "shoes" were flat. Which meant that They Stood Up On Their Own!! Ahem... Yes, I was a bit excited. But not nearly so excited as The Muffin was - it's her dream to go en pointe one day...

The After Shot:

She ate about half of the macaroni, and again about half the carrots, but scoffed everything else (and asked for more macaroni cheese for dinner later on! So she did like it - I think the cranberry muffin was just too much of a temptation).
