Nerdie Foodie Fridays: Star Wars Edition

This week is all about Star Wars here at NC’s Foodie Friday corner! When I was searching to find inspiration and ideas on different foods and good eats that had a Star Wars twist to it, I got giddy just looking at all the pictures and creativity that was overflowing on the world wide web! Ready? …Here we go!

Starting off breakfast right with the Dark side of the Force! You too can eat Darth Vader on your toast with this handy dandy toaster (I totes want this one day just for kicks)! Check it out here.

And if one is going to toast some bread, why not have an alternative and make a Millennium Falcon grilled cheese sandwich instead? Check out this recipe and how-to by Amanda Jean from StarWars.com!

Who doesn’t love a good cookie? Oreos were (still are) one of my favourite cookies growing up. And dunking them in milk? Well that was second to none! Check out this combo from Jenn Fujikawa (justjennrecipes.com)! She paired her Yoda Green Tea Oreos with Bantha (blue) milk! Genius. If you want to try your hand at making these awesome looking Yoda Green Tea Oreos, check out the recipe here!

And what are cookies without some cake? Check out this Death Star cake that was created by Shannon Bradley from The Hobbits Cakerie out in Pitt Meadows, BC! If you’re ever around for a celebration on the Canadian Westcoast, come check out one of her delightful cakes!

And finally one can’t have all these yummy creations without quenching one’s thirst. For the adults, if you ever happen to be in Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Florida) during their Star Wars Weekends, check out their pop up bars all over the park! This year, the weekends ran till June 14, 2015, and the drink choices were as follows:

These are one heck of a price for drinks as they came with collectible glow cubes! Who knows, this may be a family outing everyone could enjoy! Keep up to date for 2016 here.

For the kiddies, check out these options you can make at home: Yoda Soda (Hawaiian Punch, 7Up, and green sherbet to top off the drink) and Vader-ade (Red Gatorade).
