A NEED FOR CAFFEINE

Christmas Time is Here

For the next three weeks, the Muffin Tin Monday theme (should you choose to accept it) is "Holidays".  We celebrate Christmas, so I was super pumped to do a Christmas theme!  Then, we thought we were having a showing and wouldn't be home, but Cocoa got sick and the showing fell through.  WHAT'S A MOM TO DO WITH A THEME?!?!!?  Praise Santa for Rudolph!  We ate food that the reindeer would enjoy!

A: bananas and blackberries
B: oats (granola and a few chocolate chips)
C: apples
D: Snowflake and moon shaped PB&J (well, every time I think of reindeer I see Santa flying in his sleigh in front of the moon... that's where that came from)
E: carrots
F: snow covered in holly leaves and berries (cottage cheese with holly/berry sprinkles)








I got these rockin' (flimsy) tins at Target in the dollar bins.  I also got a snowflake one... only $2.50!



Now one of these days I'll post our Thanksgiving tin. Happy Monday!

I love how cottage cheese can look so festive when it's molded into a snowman shape and dotted with cute red and green sprinkles. :o)
