Today’s Muffin Tin theme was Party/Celebration, and I tried to make it super special. Since my birthday was last week we still have birthday cake around, and I also made some little party picks. I just took a paper punch to cut squares out of some scrapbook paper, and then glued them to toothpicks.
Today Tin had:
Pizza Rolls - We NEVER eat these, so this was a special treat
Chunk of Birthday Cake
Strawberries chopped up and skewered.
A Popcorn ball- This recipe turned out horrible!
And some cheese cubes.
Then I made a special recipe, Everyday Punch, and garnished his cup with some grapes.
I can’t wait until my house is cleaner, and I set up a little photo staging area. It drives me crazy how messy the background always is!
Let me share my Everyday Punch recipe with you.
You need one liter of carbonated, flavored water. Usually around 89 cents a bottle.
one packet of unsweetened kool aid
1/2 cup or so of sugar.
Dump the Kool Aid in a 2 qt pitcher, then fill about halfway with water, and stir.
Add the carbonated water.
Taste and add sugar as needed. I usually use 1/2 cup, BUT there are some flavors that need only 1/4 cup, or 3/4 cup. So if you sweeten it first it might be to sweet. You can also pour the carbonated water into the pitcher first, then finish filling with regular water, but it makes it less bubbly. When you do the carbonated water second it is much more fizzy.
Hope you enjoyed our Muffin Tin!
