Spotty Muffin Tin Monday

It's Muffin Tin Monday! We didn't follow the theme today (which is "Favourite Foods"). I had great plans for this theme, but they involved a mini pizza, and once again my little Muffin is not feeling 100% (apparently she has some kind of "recurring virus", and I am SO OVER IT, you have no idea). So the plans were changed "because I don't think my little tummy wants pizza today, Mummy".

She was feeling well enough to enjoy what she did have though. We went with a Spotty theme (sort of), as The Muffin had her birthday party over the weekend and it was a Spotty Party (her choice. I have no idea where that came from). So she enjoyed carrying her party theme over, albeit rather vaguely...


Top Row: Mars bar (a prize received at her party); fruit skewers (plum, banana Spots, grape Spots); strawberry pikelets (ie a slice - Spot! - of strawberry cooked into the middle of each pikelet).

Bottom Row: Carrot Spots; Yoghurt with a few sprinkles on top; Vegemite sandwich Spots.

The After Shot:

Yes, the Mars bar is still in its wrapper. Now before you keel over in shock, remember she wasn't feeling the best today. I tried to talk her out of having the Mars bar in the tin in the first place, but she pushed for it, so I agreed. After eating most of the other stuff though, she said "Mummy I don't think I want my chocolate now. I'm full". Which I was really glad about, as I'm sure her stomach wouldn't have been thrilled to receive it.

Side note: The Muffin was not alone eating her MTM lunch today. One of her birthday presents was a toy baking set for her little kitchen, including utensils, a pretend oven mitt, a few mini baking tins etc, - and - you guessed it - a little muffin tin! So while I was making her lunch, The Muffin was busy making lunch for her Best (plush) Friend...

Happy Muffin Tin Monday, Swimmy!

Love your spotty tin, and LOVE her lovie tin! Mine did that with her little cupcake play set she got for Christmas. I love when they emulate us! It makes me not only feel loved, but my efforts feel valued. (Almost) makes up for all the times she just DEMANDS a "beautiful lunch" (her name for our MTM and bento meals) instead of just being happy when I decide to make them.
