Muffin Tin Monday- Happy Chinese New Year!

Today is Chinese New Year! It is the year of the dragon! I thought it would be fun to create a dragon lunch for JDaniel.

We had such fun dyeing beige tortilla neon green and cutting them out with cookie cutters for this meal.

The dragon has a ham inner mouth and carrot tongue.The dragon’s eyes are black olives with corn pupils. I am not sure most dragons have crests on their heads, but this one has an American cheese crest.

Yes, that makes this ham and cheese sandwich with a few vegetables. JDaniel loves ham and cheese right now. This was a fun way to serve him some of his favorite foods.

Since New Year’s is usually celebrated with fireworks, I gave JDaniel red grape, red strawberry, and red grape tomato fireworks to have with his dragon.

I am planning on serving Chinese carryout tonight for dinner. How will you be celebrating Chinese New Year.

    Love the dragon and I’m SOOOOOO glad I’m looking at this when I’m not at home so John doesn’t see it! I’d have to figure out how to do it for him, too! (I made the mistake of telling him they celebrate for 15 days. I’m hoping I might get away with only making 2 lunches for it.)
