Muffin Tin Monday!

I can't express how happy I was to see Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs as our theme this week! As a child I LOVED this book, hubby on the other hand had never even heard of it. Yes clearly he lived under a rock. Anyways, we don't actually own this book so as soon as I saw the theme pop up it headed straight onto our library list. We have read the book over and over again this week and Madison thinks it is hilarious every time.

Yesterday we even did a cute little project. Maddie decorated an umbrella and then we sat down together to find some good food pictures to rain down on the umbrella.

She opted for a hamburger, hot dog, ice cream, pancakes, broccoli and of course spaghetti and meatballs!

The big topic of discussion at our house this week are the sorts of food she would like to fall from the sky too. When I asked her what she would do if rained food she said "I would RUNNNNNN"! Of course she would!

So here is the muffin tin we came up with for today.
Top: Spaghetti and sauce, broccoli (not limp!) and Jell-O
Bottom: A Meatball of course!, soup and mini pancakes

My personal favorite is the picture food pick of Madison "RUNNNIINNNGGG" from the falling food!
