“Roma-what?”, I asked for the second time. M4P friend Mary Beth had to say it 3 times before I got it, “R-O-M-A-N-E-S-C-O! You know, that green fractal cauliflower that Rey eats at Maz Kanata’s place in The Force Awakens.”
One of the biggest complaints about the original Star Wars trilogy is that the Stormtroopers can’t shoot. No, let me take that back, they can shoot… they just couldn’t hit the side of a barn if their lives depended on it (which, of course, it often does). Looking back though, it is also one of the (many) things that makes the series so fun and special.
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)!
When you are in the habit of making food “art”. You are in constant search of appropriate food “glues” that last and don’t need to be refrigerated right away. Marshmallow cream, soy or peanut butter, and melted chocolate have been the go-tos up to this point. But my new favorite is spray cheese!
Don’t you call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of grease!
(C-3PO to R2-D2 right before they enter the escape pod, in the beginning of Episode IV)
Well, an R2-D2 glob of grease is EXACTLY what we are going for here… So let the melted cheese fun start!
This was our very first venture into molded Star Wars cheese heaven…it was super easy compared to carving, which we had done in previous years.
