"A Muffin Tin Meal--Nativity Style"~Pigs in a blanket made to look like Mary, Baby Jesus, and Joseph (with a bit of leftover crescent roll "staff"). Jesus is laying in a bed of shredded cheese "straw."
~An angel made from bread, coconut oil, and sugar cooked alongside the holy family
~And some stars cut from cheese
(There were also carrot sticks and orange slices--I had meant to get some starfruit, but that didn't happen--I couldn't really figure out a way to incorporate the other things so I just served them up in separate bowls) As I searched for ideas for this, I saw some who did crown shaped cheese toasts to represent the three kings, animals crackers to be the animals in the stable--I'm sure there are a lot more creative things that could be done.
(And for those of you wondering, I am yet again experiencing contractions today, much stronger ones, never-the-less very erratic, which once again, could mean anything. :o( To say the very least, having to schedule a whole bunch of appointments for NEXT week, like 2 non-stress tests, an ultrasound, etc. was incredibly depressing. Hopefully it won't come to that. Truly I appreciate your prayers--it's not so much dealing with all the physical stuff now, but the emotional ups and downs of all these false starts).
