Muffin Tin Monday - Orange

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth


Today's theme is orange. 
Pierce had orange slices, orange Apple Jacks cereal, carrots, homemade cheese and chicken enchilada, spanish rice, and one orange gummy vitamin (which orange kitten supervised to make sure he took).

For those of you who are wondering, Horace and Juliet continue to do very well.  We plan to call today to talk to the company about how many chicks we lost.  Maybe they'll replace some.
Pierce asked to hold Horace (who seems to be everyone's favorite) last night.  Here is the chicken 'coop' in our living room.  Yup, nothing says redneck like having chickens in your living room ;-)

The light is red for a reason.  If a chick gets hurt and is bleeding, other chicks might peck at it.  But if they are under a red light, they can't see the blood and will leave it alone.  Fortunately, neither Horace or Juliet is hurt.  But the red light is for good measure. 
In the middle of the night our house glows red.  Nice.

We taught Pierce to be very gentle by petting Horace with just one finger.


Pierce did very well with being gentle.  We've always had lots of animals.  So he's learned early on.

The cheese and chicken enchilada looks awesome. I won't have thought of Spanish rice. Great tin!

Rice, what a great idea! I want to try some of that cheese! yummy!

Oh gosh, I should clarify! The cheese/chicken enchiladas are homemade - not the cheese itself! Although I wish I could make homemade cheese.

Love it! What a fun thing.

Lovely tin, the enchilada was a great idea. I'm not sure how it will go, but I ordered some cheese making supplies this past weekend from the New England Cheese Making Company. I'm going to try it this summer with the kids.

Love the orange muffin tin Monday idea! Maybe my kids would eat more things if I presented the food in a fun way??

I had no idea about the red light over the chickens...that's interesting.

Oh, Spanish rice, that's a great idea for orange! Thanks for sharing.

When John was little, we got a kit from the New England Cheese Company and made mozzerella. It was really fun and the cheese was delish.
