It's Muffin Tin Monday today and this week, the theme is movies. Now, there were a few small problems. Faith's favorite movies are Mamma Mia, Grease and Hairspray, so those would have been just a little difficult to work with. And I kind of need to go grocery shopping, so a "what's left in your fridge" theme would have been a lot easier!
We had sweet & sour meatballs the other night and I left a couple for bentos in the fridge. Then it clicked!
Why not go with Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs?
The hard part is that, while we own the movie, I haven't seen it. I have, however, read the book, a lot, so I pulled it out to borrow a few ideas from it.
In the tin, we have a couple of meatballs, a tortilla cloud (did you know you can cut a tortilla with scissors? you can), strawberry umbrellas and cucumber trees.
This, obviously, is no where near enough food for the kids, so they had more meatballs, more veggies & fruit, and rice to finish out the meal, but who wants a picture of that? ;o)
