They stepped up the challenge at Sycamore Stirrings for Muffin Tin Monday - it had a rainbow theme this week. And embarrassingly I looked up on Wiki what order the rainbow goes in - "The most commonly cited and remembered sequence, in English, is Newton's sevenfold red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet". Now this wasn't the song I remember learning??
So I laid out the food in said order combining indigo and violet for my substitute "purple"
tomato, orange, corn relish dip
baby spinach, milk (with a drop of blue colouring), canned beetroot
some of the other colours I attempted in the other muffin tin. inc corn chips, tomato sauce, yellow iced cupcakes, raisins, bread and butter.
This time I had more vegetables so the girls played more than they ate, but they did eventually eat. They made 'boats' out of bread, toothpicks and spinach for the sail, we ended up with beetroot milk (interesting), and my 5 year old discovered a love for corn chip, tomato sauce and spinach sandwiches!! The girls actually demanded we do this on Saturday and only a few hours before daddy came home with the grocery shopping, so we really scrounged around to find these things!!
