There was going to be Muffin Tin Monday last week.
There was also going to be awesome New-Years-Eve-themed decorated cookies.
For that matter, there was going to be a New Years Eve party.
What there was, instead, was fever, vomiting and extreme fatigue on the part of the Muffin, and stress and general sleep deprivation on the part of everyone else. There was even a trip to the hospital, because it turns out that most doctors surgeries shut down between Christmas & New Year, and therefore any that were open were completely booked out. In the end it turned out she just had a tummy virus, and I must say I did feel a bit of an idiot taking her into the emergency department, but it was literally the only way we could get to see a doctor. And she really wasn't well At All. Indeed, she has only just started really getting better (Fingers Crossed) in the last day or two.
All of which means that whilst Muffin Tin Monday was decidedly off the menu last week, this week it was back. This week's theme is "Food Picks, Skewers & Kebabs". As I do not own any funky bento equipment, we went the skewer option. Here is our tin for this week:
Top Row: 3 jellybeans on a toothpick (plus extra grapes); fruit skewers with apple, nectarine, and apparently not enough grapes; cheese & Vegemite elephant sandwiches.
Bottom Row: Sausage circles and cucumber hearts; yoghurt & lemon juice dip; more elephants.
I must say this is not my most attractive-looking tin ever. The Muffin loved my elephants though:
(and if you're wondering, yes I did feel a bit odd about impaling them through the head. This thought apparently did not occur to my daughter. Which can only be deemed a Good Thing.)
