Bantha Balls

How excited are you? It’s time for “May the Force”. I could live to be 100 and I will still love Star Wars.

My boy JT is coming over to binge the movies with me. He’s taking the day off work, so you know it’s love on his part as well, if not for the movies at least for me.

G and I used to have big Star Wars celebrations with upwards of 40 people. Things have changed. It’s a big deal to come to the Island, especially when only one boat runs per hour. Damn you Covid.

This year it’s probably just going to be just the 3 of us, but we’ll have a good time regardless.

Right now, my menu includes:

Bantha Balls

Millennium Falcon Cake

Jabba the Hut Juice

The Bantha Balls recipe is pretty tame, but just picture the beast they came from.

2 pounds ground meat

2 cloves minced garlic

2 eggs

1 cup grated Parmesan

1 ½ tablespoons chopped parsley

S & P

1 ½ cups lukewarm water

Olive oil

½ cup panko or bread crumbs

Combine meat with garlic, parsley, cheese, eggs, S&P.

Blend in bread crumbs.

Slowly add water, ½ cup at a time.  The mixture should be very moist but hold its shape.  I use it all.

Form into meatballs.  And the easiest way to do that is to form the meatball mixture into a rectangle and cut it into squares.  You will get the exact number of meatballs you need and they will all be of equal size.

Fry in olive oil or bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes, turning after 15 minutes.

G is making the Millennium Falcon Cake. He’s not shared the recipe yet, so I’ll keep you posted.

The Jabba Juice is bottled and looks a lot like a Green River but is made by Jones Soda.

We’re starting with my favorite episode (A New Hope) of course. We’ll keep going from there. Pictures will be taken and there will be much laughter.

*****from the Recipe Box:

We used to have many dishes to chose from, but it’s hard to cook hors d’oeuvres for 3. C’est la vie.

and remember: If you love something, celebrate it, don’t apologize for the love. Life is short and it’s time to enjoy every minute of it. Big kiss, Lynn
