It’s Muffin Tin Monday, hurray!

on June 8, 2009

Today Michelle’s post at Her Cup Overfloweth explains a bit more about MTM, so check it out.

The theme for today is numbers, so I thought we’d go with number ten. Froglet helped me fill the tins. We’ve been doing raisin maths for a while now (adding up using raisins, nuts or smarties) which gave me the idea for these tins:

PINK: 10 pieces of cheese: 5 feta + 5 bündnerkäse
PURPLE: 10 snacks: 7 raisins + 3 honey peanuts
BLUE: 10 crackers: 8 sesame + 2 cheese straws
GREEN: 10 slices of fruit: 4 nectarine + 6 apple
RED: 10 pieces of vegetable: 9 squares of red pepper + 1 tomato (yes I know it’s not really a veggie!)

In the background you can see The Engineers chair re-upholstery project, for which he has enlisted the help of my sewing-expert sister. Oh, and that’s Froglet, of course.
