I'll have to thank her again when she gets home from school - she gave me a cute theme for her little sisters' muffin tin meals :) Here is one of Birdie & Sprout's Monkey Business lunches in a Wilton flower mini tin:
Banana chips & raisins, a banana half, a banana cookie, banana pudding, a monkey peanut butter sandwich (with mozzarella cheese eyes and chocoladehagel details) and watermelon hearts, just because Birdie wanted some watermelon :) Sprout's had a half a carrot in place of the banana, she doesn't like bananas - but I think it's a texture thing, since she will still eat most banana flavoured foods. They really loved the little monkey sandwiches!
Pickle didn't get a Monkey Business lunch - I had his peanut butter sandwiches ready before the monkey theme came about.
He had a Christmas Tree train, made with a Lunch Punch and a Wilton mini cookie cutter. He had a Christmas Tree farm tractor several lunches back, so the continuation of that lunch's story is that now the trees have been loaded on a train bound for the city, because Thanksgiving is days away and people are going to want to put up their Christmas trees soon! I may have set myself up though, because now he wants to go pick out our tree right after Thanksgiving!
