Muffin Tin Monday: Angry Birds

So, it's been a while since we've done one of our typical cutie patootie muffin tin meals. I can blame that on our ongoing transition to traditional foods. This food change has been challenging enough without worrying about trying to fit traditional foods into a cute muffin tin theme. I think I finally have enough of a handle on things to allow myself a little fun in the kitchen again. 

Since we got a Kindle Fire for a birthday present - our first android device - we have been introduced to the world of Angry Birds. We are really enjoying it! So much so that Laural thinks she wants an Angry Birds themed birthday party this year! I started looking up ideas for a party on Pinterest (such an addiction) last night and in the midst of all that, I started thinking I might do a muffin tin meal for lunch. But what theme? Well, hey, why not Angry Birds since I'm knee deep in birdie searching anyhow? Here is what I came up with.

Top Row (of each tin): Blocks made of PB&J on wheat; Red Bird made from Babybel Cheese, nori features & carrot beak; White Bird made of boiled egg, carrot beak & nori details.

Bottom Row: Boards made of carrot sticks and a piggie about to buy it; Little Pigs made from green grapes with cheese and bits of grape as details; "Grandpa Pig" (that's what we call him, not sure what he is actually called) made from half a kiwi, sliced grape nose, fruit leather mustache& cheese eyes.

Overall, I was pretty pleased with how it turned out. I forgot ears for the pigs, the eggs were super fresh so peeling them was messy & I could have toasted the bread to make it stand up a little better. It was still pretty cute and the kids really liked it. Here are a couple close pics of some of the things, just for fun.









Laural & Micah really got a kick out of their tins. Honestly I probably could have just put plain stuff in the tins & they would have been happy just because it's been so long since they've had a muffin tin meal but what fun is that?

I love your Angry Birds! My husband has been obsessed with that game lately and my 3 year old now wants to play all of the time. She would definitely recognize those birds! Very neat!

That is so cute! I love the one from the babybel cheese. I wish they were more cost-friendly - I have a hard time justifying spending so much on them.

SO CUTE, but I now have the Angry Birds theme song in my head... ;0)
