Blue Milk inspired by Star Wars

In the opening scene of Rogue One: A Star Wars story, you see a glass of blue milk on the counter in Jyn Erso’s childhood home. Blue milk is the milk from a Bantha, a cowlike creature in the world of Star Wars. Throughout the Star Wars series you could see blue milk in bars and in homes.

Last week we went to see the new Star Wars film and I decided to make us some blue milk inspired by Star Wars. There is an amazing recipe for blue milk in The Geeky Chef Cookbook. The recipe from the book includes goats milk and blue berry syrup which gives it a peculiar taste. As goats milk isn’t readily available here in Korea, I tried a much simpler 3 ingredient recipe.

Ingredients

1 cup of milk

1 scoop vanilla ice-cream (you can add 1 tablespoon of honey to sweeten it a bit more)

3 drops blue food coloring

Method

Mix all the ingredients in a mixer and serve.

Beach themed Anniversary Party

More than a few years ago my parents asked me help them organise their 25th wedding anniversary. My mother was already sick by then. She wanted the whole family to be there and she wasn’t looking for something over the top but rather for something casual with some dancing at the end of the night. My parent had a roomy house with a seperate entertainment room and an outside pool. We then decided to have a beach party in the back yard. We wanted a real summer feel to the event so this is what our menu looked like

Entree- Fruit kebabs

Main – Home made chicken and beef hamburgers

Dessert – Ice-cream cones.

To drink my dad made us some sangria in a watermelon

. We threw Gerber’s and candles in the pool to give it that romantic holiday feel.

We further had cocktail umbrellas for the drinks. Crepe paper flower necklaces for each of the quests and we made little palm trees out of carrots and green peppers for table decorations. Our serviettes were in pink, orange, yellow, green and sea blue.

Although my father initially thought that having such a casual party wouldn’t work out well… the party was a huge success and everyone had a wonderful time. We even got to catch up with some relatives we haven’t seen in a while.signature_k22a8w5v6d6jv2mpnr
