Dreaming of Spring - Muffin Tin Meal
We're experiencing Autumn here in Australia. I created this Muffin Tin Meal for Mr 3 to initiate a chat about the seasons and that it's spring in other parts of the world. A beautiful time when all the flowers bloom, amazing butterflies are fluttering in gardens and cute little bunnies hop through the fields.
This "Dreaming of Spring" Muffin Tin Meal actually includes a little of each of the 5 food groups, so is a nutritiously balanced Muffin Tin Meal:
French Toast Flowers - Protein = Egg; Carbohydrate = Bread; Dairy = Milk
Green Apple leaves and a Butterfly - Fruit
Carrot Rabbit - Vegetable
2 flower cups with Frozen Sweetcorn - Vegetable
He took great pleasure in biting the ears off his carrot bunnies. Maybe I should be worried?! To my delight he actually finished the whole Muffin Tin Meal, when usually he leaves bits of the veggies behind.
Happy Spring to those of you in the Northern Hemisphere - please give a tiny thought to those of us "Down Under" heading towards winter!
