Good afternoon, and a very happy Star Wars Day to you! I don't very often post on a Sunday, but I've saved this lunch to share with you today in honour of this unofficial celebration of all things Star Wars. This post is also part of a Bento Bloggers and Friends blog hop, so once you've read the post, you can click on the button at bottom visit the next blog in the hop, where hopefully you will find some more edible Star Wars fun.
Mr Amazing and I have always been big Star Wars fans. Small Child hasn't seen any of the Star Wars films yet, but I can't wait for the day when he's old enough to watch them with us! Sadly I can't see that day coming very soon, as he has an extremely active imagination and scares himself silly with even the mildest films, cartoons included, but I'm sure he'll get there eventually! Despite that, he loves me telling him about the some of the Star Wars characters etc, because he has picked up a lot of enthusiasm for Star Wars from friends at school. He was delighted therefore, when I offered to make him another Star Wars lunch.
In this lunch Small Child had a wholemeal pitta bread, toasted and cut into a couple of rounds using a large circle cutter. I decorated the top pitta bread with an edible marker pen to look like the Death Star. On the side he had raw organic carrot and cucumber sticks, topped with a Darth Vader plastic cupcake ring, and some rolled up German sausage slices, topped with a Stormtrooper cupcake ring. I added some red grapes, skewered on lightsaber picks, and finished it off with a cheese string, with a simple design drawn on (again with an edible marker pen) in an attempt to make it look like another lightsaber.
This lunch was simple and quick to prepare, and Small Child loved it! He questioned me all the way to school about the Death Star and Darth Vader, and he came home with a completely empty lunchbox, which is always a good thing!
As I mentioned above, this post is part of a blog hop. If you click on the picture below you'll be taken far far away to see what the awesome Beau of Lunchbox Dad has made. You can then work your way through each bento blog in the hop to see a whole host of creative Star Wars themed lunches, and when you find yourself back here you’ll have completed the hop!
May the force be with you...!
