May the 4th (Be with You): Intergalactic Star Wars Day

The Girl's "Star Wars" Decorations
I love parties so any excuse for one will do. Like today! So I did a quick bit of googling and some creative thinking and we are having a Star Wars themed dinner all the foods here can be found on the Star Wars wiki know as the Wookieepedia
For those of you who may not know the Star Wars universe extends well beyond what is pictured in the 6 movies. It has a surprising amount of depth that was filled out and depicted in numerous novels, comics, and cartoons.  Here is our menu and you will find recipes and photos below. 
Like the font? it can be found for free here   

Roasted Bantha:
Chuck roast
Apple cider vinegar or pickle juice
chopped tomatoes canned or fresh

Mix vinegar and seasoning (if using pickle juice skip the salt) and marinade the roast for 1-2 hours. Place in a crock pot with tomatoes and juice from can or ½ cup of water. Cook on high for 2-4 hours.

Bubble and Squirt:
This is most likely a reference to the English bubble and squeak so I made a variation of that.
2 carrots
1 cup mashed potatoes (I used the flakes)

slice and precook the turnip and carrots. I boiled mine you just want them softer.
Mix it all (but the cheese) together and pan fry patties until they are crispy. Top with cheese and serve.

Acid–Beet Salad:
Can of beets
1/8th a red cabbages
Balsamic vinegar

Drain beets and shred cabbage. Mix them with pepper to taste and 1-2 tablespoons of balsamic. Microwave for 3 min stirring every min so that they are soft but still crunchy let it sit to come to room temperature.

Bantha milk:
Skim milk
Blue food coloring

Add on drop of blue food coloring to every cup

L'lahsh-marinated nutrient globes:
Blue jello
two handfuls Frozen blue berries (about 3/4 cup?)

Make jello as instructed, add blue berries just before chilling. At the 2 hour mark for chilling mix the partially set up jello to make it lumpier.
