Muffin Tin Monday: Camping Tin

It's Muffin Tin Monday and I was excited to make this week's tin for Alexandra. This past weekend my friends and I went camping at Cowan's Gap State Park in PA. Whenever we get together it is always a good time full of belly laughs. We went camping in campers so we weren't roughing it but I really enjoyed the camping experience. I hope someday to take Alexandra camping because I'm sure she'll love it!

For the lunch I put in items that represented my camping trip in particular. On the top left there are  bears made out of cheese. We went on a hike to a scenic overlook and according to the guide and previous people there was a chance that we may see a bear. But we didn't. Phew!

Next is my version of a pie iron sandwich - with two bread circles filled with mozzarella cheese and pizza sauce and cooked like a grilled cheese. We did ours over the fire. I had to make two as  burnt my first one to a crisp.

Next I made a graham cracker tent. We used a camper like I said and good thing too because the first evening we had torrential downpours, severe storm warnings, and even tornado warnings.

On the bottom row in the middle is a kayak made out of a hot dog (with Daisy Duck kayaking) and an oar made of a pretzel and marshmallows. (I got this idea from my friend Stacy who was giving me all kinds of suggestions! Thanks Stacy - great idea!!!!!)

Then on both sides...dessert. Table side S'mores. I had my butane torch handy (because come on, the microwave is too easy!) so I fired it up (as Alexandra sat back of course) and it melted the marshmallows and made a mini S'more!

This lunch was definitely a success - the only thing left was one part of the graham cracker tent.
ooey gooey S'mores!
