Live Long And Prosper Star Trek Lunch

I bet Spock would describe this bento as "Fascinating, but highly illogical." :)

Live Long & Prosper Vulcan salute bento lunch

Sailor Boy and I are both a little bit Trekkie, so I know he'll get a kick out of it! Inspired by the Vulcan salute, his PlanetBox lunch contains:

  • Turkey & cheddar on wheat Vulcan salute sandwich (should have skipped the turkey since Vulcans are vegetarian, but I forgot)
  • Freshly picked cherries! Sailor Boy has been looking forward to cherry season, these will be a welcome surprise :) 
  • Greens salad topped with cheese "live long & prosper"
  • Gouda Babybel carved with a Starfleet Insignia
  • Mandarin & sesame dressing for the salad
  • Safeway cheddar cheese star crackers
  • Trader Joe's yogurt covered star cookies

The Vulcan salute sandwich was made using a cookie cutter & stamper from this most excellent set by ThinkGeek:

I love them!

If we can arrange for someone to stay with the younger sproutlets, Sailor Boy, Beanstalk & I will be seeing Into Darkness this weekend - I can hardly wait!
