I totally and unabashedly stole this idea from veganf at Disposable Aardvarks: http://disposableaardvarksinc.blogspot.com/2010/04/chewie-soba.html
Rob loves Star Wars - he even has a curio in our bedroom full of Star Wars goodies - lol - so when I saw this, and realized I had soba and that Rob would probably eat them made into sesame noodles, I was excited :)
I made a sauce of peanut butter, a little sesame sauce/tahini, sesame oil, rice vinegar and say sauce - whisked it all up and mixed into my soba noodles. I think my ratio is off and it could have used more sauce, but Rob said Chewie was delicious, so score! :)
I did my Chewbacca first, getting him shaped a little and then filled in around him with carrot salad. I then added some parsley for foliage and cucumber flower halves and grape tomato slices were added.
The other tier has the usual organic spring greens mix, tuna salad in a food cup in the center with a grape tomato flower w/ green onion stems and sesame seed ground. Cucumber and carrot flowers top the salad.
I also packed crackers in his bag to have with the tuna salad.
For some reason when I went to get the pictures off the camera, they weren't there! :o Thankfully I had decided to get them off the camera to upload to FB last night and was able to get it back out and take them again - otherwise I would have discovered they were missing after Rob was gone with the bento :o
