Actual conversation in our house, the day The Force Awakens opened…
My 4-year-old son (dressed in Darth Vader jacket): Yoda!!! Darth Vader is Hungry!!!!!!
Me (wearing my Yoda hat): What would Darth Vader like to eat?
My son: I dunno what Darth Vader eats, but Jar Jar eats Mesa soup.
I really wish I could take credit for that joke. I wish I could take credit for coming up with “Mesa soup“. But alas, my 4-year-old son, came up with both all by himself. I have to say I was a pretty proud.
A few years ago, M4P friend Amy brought this amazing Boba Feta Snack to our May the Fourth Party. It had nothing but gorgeous, out-of-this-world Feta cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers. And really, who could possibly ask for more? (I admit it, I’m a big fan of cheese!) Just like any good cheese snack, the less interfering with the cheese the better, and this was so good, you didn’t even need (or want) crackers. (Woo-hoo, gluten-free)!
There are 2 kinds of Star Wars dishes: dishes that are based on food featured in the movies (+ TV shows and books), and food that is inspired by Star Wars. Since there are only a handful of dishes actually featured in the Star Wars universe, here at M4P central we spend most of our time trying to be inspired. Good thing we have help! The Obi-Wan Cornobi dish is one do the funniest dishes we have had at our May the Fourth be with You Party, and it comes courtesy of M4P friend Linda.
