Muffin Tin Monday

This weeks muffin tin Monday had an UNDER THE SEA theme. I did try to think about this one (and do some research on the net) to make it more fun for the girls. When they saw the muffin (esp. Amy’s) I asked them to guess the theme –  Amy got it right away. It’s school holidays (for two more days) so it would going able to make a lunch, rather than a snack.

I started with the obvious fish pieces shaped like a fish ( it was hard trying to find ones with REAL fish fillets), then added some potato gems (they are my imitation rocks), some shell pasta, tomato ketchup (not really sure what that represents in the ocean), green jelly with some sea snakes and I just couldn’t resist these blue cupcakes when I saw them at the bakery.

Christy’s muffin tin did not look quite so exciting. She wasn’t that pleased but I had to point out that she’s the one who won’t eat real food. She didn’t even touch the pasta or potato gems and had more toast. She didn’t eat her cupcake – so I enjoyed that for afternoon tea :-).

We were very spoilt today and Amy made us a special MTM breakfast.

    I’ve started serving our morning tea sometimes in the muffin tins too after reading your blog. I keep meaning to ask though – what’s the point of the muffin tins? Portion control? Or just something fun?

    I love your muffin tin lunches! I have never seen the fish shaped fish sticks before, but my boys would love those! Thanks for letting me know that the comments weren’t working on my blog. I changed the background so it works again – thanks! 🙂

    Love the breakfast!

    I looked at those fish too… and passed due to the price 🙂 Of course, i wasn’t sure my kids would eat them so I wasn’t willing to pay much for something that might just be used for it’s appearance 🙂
