Edible Geekery : Fish Fingers & Custard Day + Enormous Doctor Who Edibles Linky Party!

Yes, it's National Fish Fingers & Custard Day (UK), as decreed by the BBC in commemoration of the Eleventh Doctor's debut episode, "The Eleventh Hour,"  in which he consumes this curious combination. Think Bella will like it?

No,  no, I'm just kidding, that's not really what she's having ... (Although if these Doctor Who fish fingers were actually available, I might buy some and insist we give it a try!)  No, those are faux fish fingers! They're actually pieces of granola bar, spread with peanut butter and rolled in graham cracker crumbs :) And that's vanilla pudding, not custard (though that would have worked too) to dip them in. Yum! Were you fooled?

She also has a cheddar cheese flatbread sandwich Dalek atop a salad of romaine lettuce, cucumbers, radishes & grape tomatoes. I tucked in a couple of her Easter chocolates... for the Dalek to eggs-terminate :)

Want to see the fish fingers & custard bit if you haven't? Or again if you have :)

  7. My daughter (6 yrs)loves Dr. Who, the 11th Doctor especially. We have the Dr. Who inspired books, like Where's Waldo, but When's The Doctor! Bow ties are cool!

  8. To pick just one episode is so hard. But I love The Lodger and the Vincent and the Doctor episodes.

  9. What a marvelous idea for the fish fingers!!! That's still one of John's favorite episodes because of that whole scene. He loved watching "Doctor Eleven" get all silly with the food. Of course, "Blink" is also at the top of his list before the Weeping Angels got super terrifying. For me? Gosh. Too many over a lifetime to narrow it down! If you MADE me, though ... "Vincent and the Doctor." I have this necklace, you see ... <3 <3

  28. OK - fish sticks and custard is probably the grossest combo on the planet for lunch. LOL! I thought it was an April Fools post but then actually read it and am bowled over with your creativity. They still look like fish sticks to me, even after reading what they really are. YUM!! :) Oh, and this isn't an entry, it's just a gushing fan comment. If I "win" please give the cutter to a Whovian!

  29. 'I don't want to go' . . . I still tear up at that :-(

    Great lunch!

  30. Love the 'fish' fingers! I have a little Eleven fan who would flip for them! She has eaten actual fish dipped in vanilla pudding and declared it delicious, but I think she would like the faux fish better. I think I can even figure a way to make them allergy safe!

    I could not possibly choose one favorite! I have too many. The Doctor's Wife is one of my very favorites. "Did you wish REALLY hard?" So much excellent writing in that episode. And also The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances. Suuuuper creepy, but I still love them. And Vincent and the Doctor ~ I tear up at the end every single time.

  36. We are a family of 5 Whovians, especially my oldest daughter who loves anything David Tennant. Her favorite Whoism is "What in the name of sanity have you got on your head?" and our favorite episode is Blink.

  42. We are just rewatching Doctor Who with my daughter, and she LOVES it! I love hearing her going around the house quoting the Doctor and other characters and she loves the Daleks. My favourite has to be the Doctor's Timey Wimey Detector. It goes ding when there's stuff and can boil an egg at 30 paces whether you want it to or not!

    I agree with Kendra Peterson, although all the episodes lately make me ugly cry since I know what is going to happen!

  44. I can't pick one favorite episode are you out of your mind ;) as little Blue monkey would say. So blue is obsessed with Daleks, Green is obsessed the TARDIS, and I'm in love with Tennant. I love all the Doctors though and grew up with 4.

  45. THIS IS SO AWESOME. My kid isn't old enough for school lunches or Doctor Who yet...but maybe I'll have to make myself one like this. :)
