It's Muffin Tin Monday - and it's Book Week!
The Muffin's school has a dress-up day for the Monday of Book Week, and The Muffin went as Alice. So I thought it would be nice to do an Alice in Wonderland theme for her dinner Muffin Tin.
Top Row: Bananas with coconut, lemon & yoghurt (with an "eat me" sign); Chocolate chip cookie (which prompted a discussion as to whether or not the cookies in the White Rabbit's house actually were chocolate chip or not, the book being non-specific on this subject); two Naan bread teapots.
Bottom Row: Ham "rose" (use your imagination); Green sauce in a red Heart cup; White Rice Rabbit.
The "green sauce" is a sort of pureed raita: yoghurt, cucumber, spinach leaves, lemon juice and salt. The Muffin likes it on her rice.
Incidentally, what you're looking at here is a curry night. Husband and I love hot food, and The Muffin can't tolerate it at all. So when we fancy a curry, we have one - and I also make a selection of side dishes (either yellow rice or coconut rice, naan bread or paratha bread, green sauce, the banana/coconut mixture, etc). The Muffin is quite happy to sit down to a meal of just the side dishes, and that way Husband and I still get to have our curry! It works well for us.
The After Shot:
It kind of looks like she didn't touch the green sauce, but she did actually eat quite a bit of it (although maybe a little less than usual) - the picture is a bit deceiving. She usually scoffs this coconut rice, too, but to make it rabbit-shaped I put in in a sushi rice mold, so I had to serve it cold. She said it was fine cold, but really I think she likes it better warm.

But Wait - There's More! Bonus Bento!
This is what
The "Eat Me" cupcakes are made of apple. The brown heart-shaped thing is a pile of three pikelets, spread with Nutella (and sprinkled with red edible glitter). The rest is pretty self-explanatory.
She also had a label on her drink bottle:
We love Book Week! Does your school celebrate it?
