Doctor Who Lunch

My husband and I are truly nerdy geeks.  We walked into our wedding reception to The Throne and End Title from Star Wars and purchased a lightsaber on the way home from the hospital with our son.  We had a date with Battlestar Galactica every Saturday night and watched Firefly religiously.  Our new obsession is Doctor Who (thank you, Netflix) and we can't get enough of it.  We even find ourselves quoting it with a "BRILLIANT" or "OY"!  Naturally, I had to make a lunch for my husband in the Doctor Who Theme.

The Bento Bloggers and Friends has a small arsenal of Doctor Who followers and we decided to to a blog hop in honor of this fantastic show and the broadcast of the new season here in America on September 1st.
Our main entree is brown rice with broccoli and Bool Kogi Beef from Trader Joe's.  This is topped with black lentils.  We added a piece of mozzarella cheese on top in the shape of a TARDIS with embellishments courtesy of our food safe markers.  Also, we put more cheese letters cut out into Ooh, Wee, Ooh because of the theme song.  ♪♫♪

Our vegetable side is a carrot Dalek.  We really worked on our carving skills to figure this guy out.  We also added a few toothpick accessories to bring the beast to life.  (*this is not a lunch for a child)

Our fruit side is little apple Adipose.  The one time when the browning of an apple works to our advantage. Again, we worked on our carving skills for these guys.

Finally, our dairy/dessert is.......
Chobani Greek Yogurt ALIENS!!!!!!!!!!!  We used some plain Chobani yogurt, added a little bit of honey and some green food coloring, then froze it in a silicon mold.  These were a HUGE hit!

If you are digging the TARDIS napkins in the background, check out Spoonflower.  They have an AMAZING variety of Doctor Who material.  We got some and made a few napkins out of it that are perfect for lunches.

Now check out what Karen has cooked up at Our Lunch Bags.  It's almost Timey Wimey for the new season!!!!
