No matter what is going on in our family, no matter who left their Legos out, or who had a bad day, Star Wars can always bring us together. Rarely do a few days pass that my kids and I don't talk about the movies in one form or another. Boba Fett was always one of my favorite villains growing up, so I can't believe I haven't made a lunch for my kids featuring him yet. I remember that when I was a kid I picked out one of those plastic store bought costumes for Halloween. Remember those old ones where it was pretty much a solid piece of uncomfortable, non breathable plastic that ripped halfway through the night? I was so excited to be Boba Fett. So it was time to finally make this lunch.
I created this in an Easy Lunch Boxes container. Of course I had to also include the Sarlacc Pit where Boba Fett died in Return of the Jedi. Oops, maybe I should have said spoiler alert right there. Well, if you haven't seen the movie by now, that's probably your own fault. The second side dish is just symbolic of space and stars. If you want to know how I made the lunch, read on below!
Ingredients: Spinach tortillas, sliced cheese, salami, red grapes, black and gray Wilton's Shape N Amaze, blackberries, white sprinkles, hummus, slivered almonds, cooked noodles, kabob stick.
1. Cut spinach tortilla into shape of Boba's helmet. Repeat with second piece. Place sliced cheese in the middle. Cut grapes in half and put on top. Place two strips of black Shape N Amaze on top of grapes.
2. Lay salami in main compartment and put Boba's helmet on top. Place a small amount of gray Shape N Amaze on the forehead. Wrap more gray dough around a kabob stick and lay next to helmet as shown.
3. For the Sarlacc Pit, spoon hummus into side compartment. Lay slivered almonds on top in a circle for the teeth. Place a few cooked noodles on top, coming out from the middle. Your child can dip the spinach tortillas into the hummus.
4. Drop blackberries into second side compartment. Top with white sprinkles for stars.
