Muffin Tin Monday - Clouds and Meatballs


Whew ... that was a close one ...
I kept thinking (my first problem) that today was the "All About Me" muffin tin and I hadn't prepared anything yet as it has been a crazy busy few days. So, when I clicked on our little MTM home this morning (Her Cup Overfloweth), and saw that today was dedicated to the book
"Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs",
I quickly relaxed and knew I could throw this one together in no time at all. (Okay, maybe a little bit of time, just for the clouds.)
So this is what our tin consisted of: spaghetti, meatballs, peas, jello globs, juice (with a homemade umbrella straw - see, no trip to the store) and then meringue clouds.
The kids figured it out pretty quickly. The clouds were a bit of a mystery at first, eventually they got a thumbs up from two of the three tasters. Oh well - I thought they were a nice touch.
Go see what others did at

I love all the bold colors in your tin. What a fun tin. I have no idea what I am doing for the "all about me tin". Very nice.

We loved this book. We haven't seen the movie yet, but it's on our list. The lunch looks great.

Love the theme you chose! And I love your new header and ghoulish delights! Fun! Hey, I don't haveyour email address, but you had asked the question about when/how to prune clematis. Do you have a Facebook account? I had posted something about this on my Gardening With Miss Daisy fan page. Let me know. If not, I'll send you something.
