Clone Wars Party

There are 4 boys (yes my hubby counts as one) at our house, who LOVE Star Wars. Especially the new Clone Wars. Cartoon Network has a Clone Wars animated series. Last season it became a tradition for the boys to watch it every Friday night. They were so excited for the Season 2 premiere. We decided to make it a party. I, of course, mean fun food and watch the cartoon. Our menu was:

Naboo Nuggets- Chicken Nuggets. I cut chicken breast into finger size pieces. In a gallon size baggie, crush up 3 cups of Corn Flakes, mixed them with 3 tbsp. flour (you can add salt, pepper, and other dry seasoning). Break 1 egg into a shallow dish ( I used one of The Pampered Chef's coating trays). Coat the chicken pieces with egg. Add them to the baggie with crushed mixture. Seal the baggie and shake, until the chicken is well coated. You can lay them out on a cookie sheet (stoneware bar pan) and bake them or fry them. This night I opted for frying them in vegetable oil in my Stir-Fry Skillet. We dipped them in BBQ, Honey Mustard, and Ranch sauce.

Palpatine Pizzas- English Muffins, pizza sauce, cheese, Canadian bacon, more cheese. Bake @ 350 for 15 min.

Jabba Jell-o- Blue Jell-o made with Orange Juice. It doesn't have the "see-through" look. It looks thicker, like slime. I added a couple scoops of canned fruit cocktail and swirled whipped cream over the top (using my Easy Accent Decorator).
Ventress Vegetables- Bought mixed veggies in cheese sauce. Microwaved in my Large Micro-cooker. I was in a hurry, and didn't plan ahead on the veggies.

Yoda Soda- 1 scoop Lime Sherbet, topped with Lemon-Lime Soda

Hoth Asteroids- Cookies N' Cream Ice Cream

Hoth Chocolate- Hot Cocoa (to warm up after the ice cream on the cold Oct. evening)

It turned out to be pretty fun. The food was easy, and it was fun to think of Star Wars names. We might have to have Star Wars themed dinners every Friday Night, before watching Clone Wars! How Fun! Hey... now there is an idea for a giveaway! Stay tuned...
