Well, the weather outside was frightful but, the lunch inside was delightful. We had snow! We had snow! We had snow! With all the snow and ice we had in South Carolina I went with a snow and ice theme for the muffin tin.
I started simple turkey and cheese sandwich cut it out with a snowman cookie cutter. The scraps from the sandwich were placed in the adjacent muffin cup. The second row contains snowman parts. The carrots could be used for a snowman’s nose and olives that could be used for a snowman’s eyes or smile. The third row contains popcorn puffs of snow and lemon ice chunks.
The lemon ice contains juice from the last of the lemons I received from Mrs. Matlock. It was sour and sweet rolled into one.
Here is the recipe for the lemon ice:
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
2/3 cup of lemon juice (from about 4 lemons)
