1950s Muffin Tin Monday

The theme for Muffin Tin Monday this week is based on the 50s, and it proved quite a challenge!

I have only made one muffin tray this week as my mother had taken Z1 out and only Z2 and Z3 were left at home with me, hence they shared this.

Cute lunch bento for kids based on 1950s themes. Rock and Roll, Sputnik, vinyl records, The Day the Music Died and more! Also good for party ideas for kids.

Lunch bento based on themes from the 1950s

In the top row: Sputnik, the first world’s first satellite launched by the Soviet Union in 1957, a Cadillac, which is a jam sandwich outlined with edible food markers, and a vinyl record made using a cookies and cream Oreo spread with Nutella. The cookies and cream Oreo was presented during a work seminar some of my colleagues attended earlier last week.

In the bottom row: a television made using bread stuck together with some agave syrup and M&Ms, for the 50s was known as the Golden Age of Television, Rock and Roll which is cheese lettering on strawberries, and The Day The Music Died, to represent February 1959 when Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and “The Big Bopper” passed away in a plane crash.

All the while when I was making this lunch and while typing this post, the American Pie song by Don McLean kept going through my head…

So, bye bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
Them good ol’ boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing…
This’ll be the day that I die
This’ll be the day that I die
