Mail Delivery: Muffin Tin Swap!

Yippee skippee!

I was so excited when Michelle blogged about a Muffin Tin Swap at Her Cup Overfloweth!!!! I couldn't wait to go shopping and have been anxiously camped out by the mailbox (not really, but I should have). My swap buddy was Christina at Three A's and a C. She hasn't started Muffin Tin Mondays quite yet because her little one is still a bit young but I was able to send her off a 'starter kit' for when they are ready.

A few weeks ago I recieved my first package from Christina and it was this absolutely adorable bear shaped muffin tin. I think we are going to have to use it to make actual muffins too! Then yesterday I was Super Duper Excited to see a box from Japan in my mailbox!!! I practically skipped home from the mailbox I was so excited! All I have to say is THANK YOU!!!! Christina! She sent some of the cutest bento box accessories ever!

Now bear with my because my Japanese is a little rusty (or non existent) so I am not 100% sure of the usage of all the products!

How adorable are these Pooh Bear and Mickey Mouse picks!

These silicone molds are just too cute! Serving lunch is going to be so much fun now!

Now these little guys are adorable but I am a little lost on there proper usage. I thought they were for sauce but I have no clue how they close and they are folded up into a cone shape so they have a teeny tiny hole at the bottom that would leak (I assume) so I need to do a little research. Unless someone out there in the blog world can help me!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Christina! And Thank you Michelle for hosting such a fun swap!!

Aww, I didn't know the peek-a-boo things had holes in the bottom! I thought they were for sauces, too. Honestly I didn't know they were cones, either. I just thought they were too cute. lol I hope you can find a way to use them! I'm glad that you liked everything. I know I'm looking forward to using my starter kit. :)

The last one is for mayonnaise, or you can use it for ketchap I guess. Open the face and put mayo in like the picture on the top, and I guess close with the arms since it says "peek-a-boo". If you squeeze it mayo is out from the hole. It also says you can use it in the microwave (so you don't need to pick it out when you warm your bento).
These silicone molds, you can use them for baking or freezing. You can use it between 230C(446F?) to -30C(-22F?).
That's all I read... hope it helps you a bit!
