Muffin Tin Monday - Big and Little + Short and Tall

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

This week's theme is Big and Little + Short and Tall.  I did a few trays for dinner with this theme.  Here's the first one:

From left to right:
Big and Little Combination #1 - Grapes and raisins
Short and Tall (Middle of the Tray) - Mini carrots and (taller) mozzarella sticks
Big and Little Combination #2 - Peeled apple slices and dried apple slices

The dried apples are ones that the girls and I made during the fall. We went to an apple orchard and got some apples.  At home, I peeled and sliced them.  The girls placed them in single layers on the different trays in the dehydrator.  I sprinkled some cinnamon and sugar on top.  Within a couple of days, the apple slices became dried apple treats.

This is the second tray that was on the table for dinner:

This tray with heart-shape openings focuses only on big and little:

Top row: Round taco chips (little) and black bean and garlic chips (big)
Middle row:  Oyster crackers (little) and snack crackers (big)
Bottom row: Lightly-salted peanuts (little) and peanuts in the shell (big)

The picture of the third tray is rather blurry, but I still wanted to include it.  The focus of this one is little since everything in it small (the individual shapes as well as the contents). 

Red sauce (to use with chips): salsa
Pink squares:  ham
Green salad (to use with chips or crackers): a combination of fresh vegetables and herbs (it was a Turkish appetizer that the girls and I made a couple of days ago)
