Nativity Lunch

Over at Muffin Tin Monday today, the theme is Christmas Stories. I decided to tell the ultimate Christmas story today with our Muffin Tin Meal... The Nativity! :-)


My daughter loved it, and actually completely refused to eat baby Jesus ;-).

In My Tin:

Mary, Jesus, and Joseph- All made from pigs in a blanket with dotted eyes made from colored decorating gel.

3 Kings, symbolized by 3 crowns of cheese toast and an animal cracker camel.

An angel cut from cheese with a cookie cutter.

2 animal cracker sheep to stand for the shepherds.

To make the muffin tin look like a stable, I topped it with 2 pretzel rods and a the star of Bethlehem, cut from another piece of cheese.


I think some of this would be cute food for children Christmas parties. I wish I had had time to make the angel a beautiful sugar cookie, but you can only do what you can do, right? I thought it would have also been cool to have a little candy cane in the shepherd's cup. Can't wait to see everyone else's creations! :-)
