Lunch Made Easy: May the 4th be with you!

I wish I could put some cool Star Wars  scrolling text here for my intro. lol

Friday is May the 4th. Better known as Star Wars Day!
I had originally planned to do a Cinco de Mayo themed lunch for Friday, but after my fellow bento bloggers wanted to do a hop for Star Wars, I decided to let Little Miss choose.
I was certain she would choose Cinco de Mayo, being that we just went to Mexico in February and she loves taking Spanish in school... to my surprise she excitedly answered "Star Wars!"
Her reason: "All da boys play Star Wars at recess... and I love playing with the Yoda doll Nana has at her house. I want Yoda, I want Yoda!" And so, it was decided. 

Ewok: Little Miss has half an Udi's (gluten, nut, soy, & dairy free) bagel sandwich. It's filled with turkey and cheese. I made his facial features from cheese and an all-natural apricot fruit strip. It was actually really funny, when I finished him the fella came up behind me and made that little noise the Ewok's make. Haha, that made my night.

Yoda: He's a happy Yoda. Probably because he's made from Udi's bread and filled with SunButter and jelly.

They're both laying on a bed of baby spinach and have grapes scattered around them.

Storm Trooper: Hard boiled egg, still in its shell. I colored his face with a marker. I got this idea from the interwebs. :)

Lightsabers: Chobani Champions Chocolate Chunk greek yogurt with sprinkles used to make the lightsabers.

Little Miss' reaction: "Cooooooooool!!!! You're da best Mama!" She asked if I could drive her to school in the AM so she could be extra special careful not to move anything she said. LOL she apparently told her WHOLE class she was getting an awesome Star Wars lunch Friday.

Lunch is packed in an EasyLunchBoxes container.


Everyone will be posting their Star Wars themed lunches on Friday!
