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!
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.
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!!!
