May the 4th Be With You

Today is May the 4th. I could not let this day pass without making a Star Wars themed lunch. For the past several years, Bento Bloggers & Friends have had May the 4th Be With You blog hops. This year, the date kind of sneaked up on us. There is not a blog hop, but several of my fellow Bento Bloggers & Friends are making special Star Wars lunches. Here is a link to last year's blog hop.

This is my Chewbacca lunch in an ELB:
The Italian seasoned meatball has olive & cheese eyes, an olive nose, and cheese teeth. Chewbacca is sitting on top of juicy Italian seasoned diced tomatoes and zucchini "noodles".  Darth Vader, Yoda, and lightsaber picks are in the small compartment with blackberries. The Star Wars logo is sitting on top of some organic unsweetened apple sauce.
My husband told me that the meatball looked more like an Ewok than Chewbacca. So I added a cheese hood and changed the Star Wars logo to The Return of the Jedi. Those little changes made it appear more like an Ewok than a Wookie.
Which way do you think it looks best? Either way, it is still yummy and filling!

Be sure to check out the wonderful sites I link to on my sidebar! If you want to see my book inspired lunches, click on the "lunches" label at the end of this post or go to My Story Themed Lunches board on Pinterest. I would love for you to leave a comment to let me know you stopped by.
