This is the last "free" week for Muffin Tin Monday before the scheduled themes begin again! I've had this one in mind all summer but kept putting it off! Unfortunately, this muffin tin meal just didn't turn out the way I had hoped. Oh, well. You win some, you lose some. ;-)
- sand pail
- fishy crackers
- octopus shaped hot dog
- strawberries (I figure if Sponge Bob can have a pineapple under the sea, we can have strawberries!)
- lobster quesadilla
- fish shaped hard boiled egg
The bottom row occupants! All of them!
The lobster cookie cutter I used is from a set of Williams Sonoma cutters I got a few years ago. It's super adorable, but it has very blunt edges that are not ideal for cutting through a crispy tortilla.
The boiled egg didn't fully form in the mold and then a fishy cracker totally jumped ship and remained undetected until I was loading these pictures! I guess a stowaway does still lend itself to the theme, somewhat...
And the strawberries? So uninspired! I had a cute idea for that muffin spot, but forgot to pick something up at the grocery store that I needed to pull it off. Maybe next time!
This cute little sandpail! The bucket is a mini cup that is from a bento shop. I filled it with vanilla yogurt and topped that with graham cracker crumbs.
Cute little octodog! I've made these before, but this is my favorite one yet. :) I continue to have a tricky time getting all 8 legs cut, this one only has six. I kinda started to understand why someone would want to have that little octodog cutting tool
(JList link) for easy tentacle making, until I realized after looking it up that it only makes 6 legs too! LOL
As always, you can go to the official Muffin Tin Monday site to see other muffin tin meals. Next week the scheduled themes begin again, starting with "alphabet/ABC". Hope to see you there! :)
