Millennium Falcorn
Bring water to a boil and add desired amount of frozen corn.  Reduce heat and simmer for two minutes.  Add butter, salt, or pepper to taste.

I made these for Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

1 pkg of Jell-O

1. Bring water to a boil.
2. Spray the inside of the tray and place on a baking sheet (in case it spills).
3. Add boiling water and gelatin mix in a small bowl and stir for 3 minutes until mix has dissolved.
4. Refrigerate overnight
5. Use a knife to jiggle the jigglers loose! 

Wampa Dip
I got this awesome recipe on this site.

8oz of mozzarella cheese
8oz of provolone cheese
8oz package of cream cheese
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan
1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
1/8 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes

1 loaf of Artisan bread, sliced

4. Spray baking dish.
5. Add cheese mixture and bake for 15 minutes
6. Stir when completed and serve with bread. 

C3PO Cocktail
I found this recipe along with a whole bunch of others!

3 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of boiling water
4oz of bourbon 
4 tablespoon of lemon juice
one lemon wedge 


Admiral Ackbar Cupcakes!

*DISCLAIMER: Dad, I do know that Admiral Ackbar is NOT in the fifth movie but I had to make an exception because I have such an awesome idea for the sixth movie.* 

I found this amazing idea here! 

The cupcake recipe is one I have used for many dinners now: TwisterA Goofy Movie, and The Lorax dinner.  

For icing I just bought chocolate icing in a tube.  
Yellow Candy Melts
Black icing (for drawing the eyes, nose and mouth)
Chocolate sprinkles for his weird goatee!


It was an awesome dinner! 

I did feel like I had to add some pictures of when we went to Disney World and rode the Star Tours ride like six times… 

Happy Father's Day!
