MTM ~ The Giant Jam Sandwich

This week the Muffin Tin Monday theme was a piece of children's literature. I love this theme! I think I could plan all our meals around books I love. lol! (On an aside: If you haven't been over to Her Cup Overfloweth to see the other ladies that enjoy MTM, you should check it out... Michelle is amazing and her themes are always a big hit!)

At first, my plan was to make a lot of gum drop bees. But I sent Don to the store for spice drops and he came home with Dots. Out of two boxes of Dots, there was ONE (no kidding, one) yellow Dot. So I printed out these cute little wasps and Cyan put them on toothpicks to eat our pasta with.

Top row: Jam sandwiches (Of course... lol!), wheel shaped pasta (for the carts and wagons it took to get the bread to the field) with grass from the field (spinach cut into ribbons).

Middle bit: Jam spreaders (pretzels with a marshmallow stuck on the end, covered in jam and frozen. All Alex's idea!)

Bottom row: More wheels and 'grass', and a birds nest for the birds that came to take the sandwich away (and ate it for a hundred weeks). Made by Cyan and complete with left over dark chocolate eggs from Easter.
