Happy Halloween Muffin Tin Monday

I had so much fun with this muffin tin.  I actually made it a while back - I just got so excited when I had the ideas that I had to make it right away.
 Homemade spaghetti in an orange jack o'lantern bell pepper (idea for this came from an old Taste of Home), a pumpkin sugar cookie (in a Halloween muffin liner), meatball eyeballs, and breadstick witch's fingers.
How seriously cute is the bell pepper?  Pierce loved this meal so much.  He ate really well and even ate a good bit of the bell pepper, even though he'd never had an orange one before.

How cute the pepper is. It is all cute.

I have seen oranges cut into a pumpkin face and then used as a fruit cup.

This idea is just too too great. Not just to get them to eat their veggies, but to be able to carve "pumpkins" year-round. Love this so much.
