Star Wars Fun!

Hey readers! Sorry it's been forever and a day since i've last updated. LOTS has been going on. Since I last updated, I GRADUATED from college and i've moved back home. At least for now. Who knows where I go from here. We'll see though.

I haven't been doing a whole lot of cooking recently. Haven't came up with too many new recipies. I did make my enchiladas again the otherday. This time for my parents.

So, I originally created these recipes for Star Wars Day on the 4th. But since today is Star Wars Birthday, I find that these recipes are appropriate.

So, I give you:
Chewbacca Furballs
Veggie Lightsabers
Princess Leia Pizza Bagel Buns
Death Star Cookies
Yoda Punch

So For Chewbacca Furballs, you need:

1 lb of hamburger meat
1/3 cup of rice
1/2 an onion
1/2 cup of water
little bit of chili powder
BBQ sauce

1. In a large pot heat water up to a boil, add your chili powder and stir it together.

2. In a large bowl, combine your meat, rice, onion, and water.3. Roll your mixture into balls and place in your boiling water. It'll make about 20 or so, depending on how big you roll 'em.

4. Cover the meatballs and reduce the heat and cook for 1 hour.

5. Once cooked, drain the meatballs and return back to the pot with a little bit of water and the BBQ sauce. Keep on low heat till you're ready to serve.

6. Dish up in a bowl and ENJOY!
They may not look like balls, but they are, and they still taste yummy!

Next Up:
Veggie Lightsabers

This is a fun and easy snack that everyone is sure to enjoy. What's more fun than being able to play with and then eat your food?

You Need:
1 bag of baby carrots
1 bunch of celery
1 tub of your favorite chip dip (I used Sour Cream and Chive, but cream cheese or peanut butter or sour cream or whatever works just fine)

1. Rinse your veggies.

2. Take a piece of celery off the stalk, and cut into about 3 in pieces, should make about 3 pieces per stalk.
(ignore the onions, those are for another thing)

3. Spread some of your dip on one piece of celery. Stick a carrot in it, with the skinny end up. Spread a little more dip on the other piece and place ontop of the carrot.

4. Make appropriate Lightsaber sound effects and ENJOY!

Next Up:
Princess Leia Pizza Bagel Buns

If you're craving pizza, but don't want a whole lot, these are fun to make. And eat.

You Need:
1 package of plain or whole wheat bagels
1 small can of tomato paste
1 small can of tomato sauce
Italian Seasonings
Onion (the other half from the Meatballs)
Your other favorite pizza toppings

1. Preheat your oven to 350

2. In a saucepan, heat some EVOO over medium heat.

3. Once your pot is hot, add your onions and garlic, cook till their soft.

4. Add your tomato sauce and paste and your seasonings. Heat over a low simmer.

5. Take a bagel and split it in half.

6. Spread on the sauce and then put your toppings on (I used Pepperionie, Green Pepper, Onion, and Cheese)

7. Put in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or untill the cheese is melted.

8. Remove from the oven and let cool for about 5 minutes.


Next Up:
Yoda Punch

This is a fun way to toast to the little green guy we all love, and it reminds me of Degaboh. His home planet.

So here's what you need and how to make it:

Lime Sherbet
Lemon Lime Soda (7-Up, Sprite, Serria Mist, Store Brand of Lemon-Lime Soda, whichever brand you like)

1. Put sherbet in bottom of the glass

2. Pour soda over sherbet


And finally:
Death Star Cookies

Simply, what I did was buy store bought cookie dough and decorated them. But they're still fun. So here's the directions anyways!

What You Need:
Your favorite cookie dough (I used store bought chocolate chip, but sugar works best. I don't reccomend oatmeal)
Black decorating gel
Chocolate Sprinkles

1. If your making your cookie dough, make the cookie dough and bake the cookies, If your buying it, bake the cookie dough according to the directions on the package.

2. Let the cookies cool and then open your decorating gel.

3. Outline the cookie, then draw a line in the middle, and draw one more under it, leaving a small gap.

4. Draw a small circle in the upper left region of the cookie, if you used chocolate chip cookie dough, draw a circle around a chocolate chip. Fill it in.

5. Draw lines horizontally. all the way up the cookie, except where that small gap is. Then draw small vertical lines in between the horizontal lines. Like you're drawing bricks. Except don't draw where the gap is.

6. Now this is where it gets time consuming. Outline all of your lines with sprinkles. Except for the outside one. When you do the little circle, put them in an order like spokes on a bicycle wheel.

7. Now after all of your hard work, ENJOY!
I took a bite out of it and realized that it looked like the half-rebuilt Death Star from "Return of the Jedi".
And theres some fun foods for your next Star Wars Day Party!

Have fun guys, and May the Force Be With You!

Till the next time,
Happy Eating!
