Happy Star Wars Day! This fun Star Wars themed lunch is for me!
strawberries & a Death Star clementine. Ewok teddy grahams under attack by a Stormtrooper
Princess Leia cheese sandwich with oreo hair buns, strawberry fruit leather, Vermont cheddar and nori features, on a bed of spinach & walnuts Light saber picks hold a red grape each.
The strawberries were tossed on the spinach to make a yummy spinach, strawberry & walnut salad. The little red dip cup holds balsamic vinaigrette. Yum!
There are a lot of firsts in this lunch, first time drawing on a clementine -- trickier than you might think!, first time using nori (eyes and eyelash details on Princess Leia - easy to work with using tweezers), my first time eating a spinach only salad. Yup, it's true. I am not usually a spinach lover. My husband started sneaking spinach into our regular lettuce salads and I didn't even notice! Now I am giving the spinach only salad a go. It's only a small salad as you can probably tell - I think I will enjoy it.
What else is special about this lunch? This lunch post is part of a blog hop. My Bento Bloggers and Friends group has gotten together and planned a fun blog hop of Star Wars lunches in honour of May the 4th. Click the button below to hop to the next Star Wars lunch.
