Poe Dameron is a flashy, spectacular pilot with a smile that can melt any glacier on Hoth. So when we where trying to figure out a Poe-themed food for our Star Wars Party in a couple of weeks, we needed something that was worthy of his pizzazz. A Po’boy might sound too humble, but I assure you it is anything but!
Jar Jar’s “Mesa” Soup (Miso Soup)
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.
That’s No Waffle. It’s…a…Space Station! (Death Star Waffles)
Common wisdom say that you never, ever give your wife an appliance for her birthday, Christmas or anniversary. I’m lucky to have a hubby who doesn’t listen to convention, ‘cuz he gave me this spectacularly awesome DEATH STAR WAFFLE MAKER. And I want to warn you that it is so majestically incredible, I will only use all caps when referring to it.
So since today is Waffle Day in Sweden, what better way than to celebrate with DEATH STAR WAFFLES!!!!!
There they were, a whole pile of pears with a sign that said “Bosc Pears 79¢ each”. I stood there staring at them for a while, trying to make the connection – I knew there was one. Then it hit me: Bossk, the feared bounty hunter and Bobba Fett’s BFF! I made a little squeal of delight when I realized that his head shape and coloring perfectly matched the Bosc Pears. Another Star Wars Food Art project, WOOHOO!!!
