I promised a few new recipes before May 4th! So, just in time for Easter, and May the Fourth I present to you our BB-Ates appetizers!
We first served them at our May the Fourth be with You Party 2 years ago, and they went like hot cakes. The kids must have eaten a half dozen each.
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)!
We had our very first May the Fourth be with You Party in 2011. Yup, that was way before “May the Fourth be with You” was even a thing. If you check Wikipedia it says its very first occurrence was in 2011.
It was early April that same year, and I remember someone on the radio (I think NPR) mentioning that “May the Fourth” was coming up. They said that the date was a special day for Star Wars fans, and the radio crew sounded pretty amused at the idea. I got so excited I hollered out loud: THAT IS THE COOLEST THING EVER!!! (Deep breath!) WE HAVE TO THROW A PAAARTYYYY! (We had just celebrated “pi-day”, so the idea of throwing a Star Wars party was a small leap.)
