The King's Crown, referencing Pilate questioning Jesus if he was a King. I made ours with a mixture of cream cheese, sour cream, and taco seasoning as the base layer, then a layer of refried beans mixed with cilantro, followed by a tomato layer, and then topped with cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses. The tortilla chips form the points for the crown. Yummy!!
The muffins were a simple recipe so as not to be like a treat: basic whole wheat muffins from the LLL cookbook. They have cloves and cinnamon in them, and a couple tablespoons of honey. I cut the tops off and hollowed them out to represent the tomb. Then the girls placed a bit of food in the tomb when we read about Jesus being laid in the tomb and covered it with the "stone," the muffin lid.
These tortillas are for Jesus's seamless garment topped with mozerella cubes for the dice, standing for when the soldiers cast lots to see who would win the garment.
We also had grape tomatoes (100 halves, from 50 tomatoes) to represent the centurion, and we had balsamic vinegar for the vinegar offered to Christ on the cross.
When we read about placing Jesus in the tomb and said that the girls could put a piece of food in their tomb muffins if they wanted to, we found that Cecilia tried to stuff all of her hard-boiled egg pieces into hers!
