May the Fourth has been one of our favorite days of the year for an “at home” celebration for as long as I can remember! We’ve done all sorts of snacks, treats and dinners over the years.
I went through bookshelves, bedrooms and closets to gather up the table decor. Our weather has been amazing, so I set up on the porch and had the Star Wars iconic music playing.
The place settings were simple, put together using things I had. One of the easiest additions to any Star Wars celebration is blue milk! Mine is nothing more than a drop of food coloring in plain milk.
At the ages my kids are, they really appreciate a good meal. As I was menu planning for the week, it struck me that I could theme an old stand-by for this evening’s festivities. Take a gander at Boba Fettuccine and Chewbacca Chicken!
I prepared the chicken per the recipe. I cooked the bacon until it was almost done but still flexible and wrapped it around the chicken a la Chewy’s belt. I then popped the chicken in the oven at 350, covered with foil, for a few minutes to crisp up the bacon.
It turned out really cute!
For dessert, I just happened on these Millennium Falcon ice cream sandwiches at Publix a couple of weeks ago. I haven’t been able to buy flour since early March, but ice cream is no issue. :-)
They were quite tasty and a big hit! The family, of course, requested them again but I have only seen them at the store that one time I purchased them. On this week’s run there wasn’t even a space for them in the freezer case anymore.
It was a fun, memorable night for sure! Now, it’s time to gear up for Cinco de May tomorrow!
