Muffin Tin Monday: Invasion!!!

Today's theme for Muffin Tin Monday was faces and people. I had all intentions of turning last nights chicken quesadilla dinner into cute little people but then the aliens invaded. I was going to turn cucumbers and tomatoes into people but my people I had teeny tiny tomato heads and therefore must be aliens instead!

ALIENS!!!

We have some cucumber and tomato big footed aliens with candy eyes and carrot antennae. I used cream cheese to adhere everything together.

Then we have some leftover chicken quesadilla aliens with olive and sour cream eyes and carrot antennae.
We have some space juice with asteroids or pink lemonade with frozen blueberries!

And for dessert I whipped up a small batch of 5 Minute Chocolate Mug cake and microwaved it right in my footed silicone muffin tin. With some pretzel stick antennae and candy eyes of course!

Maddie LOVED devouring the aliens!

While I was busy in the kitchen making aliens Mad made her own silly face picture! I filled a muffin tin with some odds and ends and let her go wild!

Meet John.

Hope you all have a wonderful Muffin Tin Monday!
