Muffin Tin Monday (er, Tuesday)

Katy at Sycamore Stirrings hosts a weekly Muffin Tin Meal Challenge she calls Muffin Tin Mondays. And although the current challenge isn't until next Monday, I made mine already and couldn't resist posting it for you all to get a sneak peak! The challenge: Children's Literature. The kidlets chose "The Giving Tree" by Shell Silverstein. I was giddy with delight as I was putting this together. What fun! Little Miss enjoyed eating it as much as I enjoyed preparing it. And although Little Man still is warming up to the idea, I make it for him, just in case something peaks his interest.
Clockwise from top left corner: 1)Apple slices, for when Tree gives Boy all his apples to sell 2) Heart-shaped PB & J with initials in chocolate frosting, for when Boy carves his initials in the tree 3) Pita "wood" chips 4) Banana "Stumps" covered in brown sugar, for when Boy as an old man sits down on Tree's stump 5) Broccoli "Giving Trees" 6) Tree Sap Ranch Dressing (made with green food coloring)

  2. You've been busy! Love the new template; I had to go back and forth a few times just to make sure it was still YOU. But it's so much more YOU than the old one, in my opinion. Love it.

    Love the last few posts, too. Wow. I'm impressed. You are SOOOO creative...and SUCH a good mommy. ;)

  7. This is my favorite book - had I been making the muffin tin lunch for myself, I would have been stumped! I love what you did. Fortunately my little guy has a different favorite story that I could figure out.
