Muffin Tin Monday: Seeds, Plants & Flowers

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

This week's Muffin Tin theme was Seeds, Plants, & Flowers.
I'll start with the dirt dessert made from Dr. Oetker's chocolate pudding and ground up chocolate chips.
Before they ate, the kids ceremoniously planted pumpkin seeds into the "dirt." And the napkin flower isn't too impressive, but I tried!
Quinoa salad with grated carrots plus SPROUTED lentils (Can you see the little sprouts?). Little celery seedlings are also sprouting up.

More lentil/quinoa salad with avocado grass covering (but no avocado on Dash's). Strawberry, apple, and cucumber flowers. Dash also picked his cucumber flowers and "replanted" them in Tornado's garden.
Check out the other muffin tin meals at Michelle's Journal Corner!

I used to do these with Micah...I think I should get back to it. He would really enjoy it, but I don't think mine would ever be as creative as yours! You made me hungry! :)
