Muffin Tin Monday - Fall Leaves Theme

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth


Our first November meal!!!

Today is Muffin Tin Monday, and the theme is fall, harvest, leaves, etc. I've got leaves, and it almost feels like fall in Dallas, so I'm going with it.

After last night's Halloween feast, we're back to nice normal healthy foods, even our treat is homemade (pumpkin chocolate chip bread, it's good).


Faith has:
  • carrot sticks with leaf shaped cucumbers
  • leaf picks of cantaloupe & honeydew
  • more leaf picks with strawberries
  • half a turkey & white cheddar sandwich on honey 7 grain bread with orange cheddar happy leaves
  • leaf shaped chocolate chip pumpkin bread
Nana & Dave (my parents, and yes, the kids call my dad Dave, but he's *their* Dave) sent the kids an Edible Arrangement bouquet for Halloween, so we are loving all the fresh fruit--pineapple bats (not used in this tin), cantaloupe, honeydew, strawberries, and grapes. Yum!!!

Check out Muffin Tin Monday for more fun tins!

  2. The leaf toothpicks are great! And I love that the grandparents sent fruit... awesome idea on their part. How did you get the faces onto the cheese to look so nice? My food writers barely show up.

  3. @Java, the faces are bits of cucumber peel, that's why they are so dark.

  4. Looks very yummy. I love your site. I am trying to get to the point where I am THIS creative with lunch. I love how your lunches are all good food.

  6. @Leesa - The leaf picks are a long story. I am about 90% sure they are made by Wilton, but I didn't actually buy them. The last year I was teaching, we had a teacher-appreciation luncheon put on by the parents. My friend Heather stopped by my room (her daughter was in Faith's class) to see if I wanted anything else and I told her that, if they did not belong to someone, I wanted the decorative leaf picks. She obliged. ;o)

  9. You brought the theme out so well - and as the others said, I love the leaf picks. And great cucumber cutouts - mine always squish when I try. Any secrets?

  11. Jealous about the fruit basket! I've been trying to use faces more for my son's sammies. Thanks for keeping it foremost in my mind!
