Muffin Tin Monday – Christmas, Week #3 December 20, 2010

Okay, before you say anything…Yes, I went overboard this week.  All I can say in my defense is that an idea was planted in my head, and it just grew and grew.  And what was said idea?  To create a muffin tin meal based on the song “12 Days of Christmas”.  And I did.  Here’s what we came up with:

.

I have been working on my (point and shoot) camera skills, and obviously still need some practice.  The silicone cups I used were a beautiful bright red, but look orange in the pictures.  Sorry, but I promise it was festive.

.

I told Skylar that each of the characters from the songs left us something special for our muffin tin:

.

12 Drummers Drumming left us drum sticks (Pocky Sticks)

.

.

11 Pipers Piping left us their mad piping skills (mashed potatoes piped with a ziplock bag)

.

.

10 Lords a Leaping left Skylar with one of the foods that makes her jump for joy…Mac and Cheese

.

.

9 Ladies Dancing left us a music note (fruit leather, cut by hand)

.

.

8 Maids a Milking left a nice cup of milk

.

.

7 Swans a Swimming left us with some tin foil to wrap up any leftovers (in the shape of a swan, of course)

.

.

6 Geese a Laying laid us a beautiful hard-boiled egg

.

.

5 GOOOOOOOOLD RINGS!!!!!!! (Salerno butter cookies!!!!!)

.

.

4 Calling Birds left nuggets from another bird (chicken)

.

.

3 French Hens left french cut green beans

.

.

2 Turtle Doves left us some homemade turtle(ish) candies.  (I will post a tutorial on these soon)

.

.

And finally, the Partridge stuck around to show us the pear from her pear tree.

.

.

So, there you have it, all 12 days of Christmas represented as a muffin tin (tree). Whew!  Skylar loved everything about this meal.  I thought for sure she would go for the chocolate first, but surprised me by going after the hard boiled egg.  In the end, she ate every single bite.  Yeah!

.

I had a great time creating this.  If you are interested in what all the other moms are doing for Muffin Tin Monday, check out Muffin Tin Mom’s site.
