Edible Geekery : Lunch is shiny!

It's hard to believe it's been a decade since the first & only season of Firefly premiered! It's still one of my all-time favourite sci-fi shows, & I still miss it! So I'm really looking forward to watching the Science Channel's 10th Anniversary Special this Sunday - so much so that I had to make a Firefly-themed bento lunch for my Sailor Boy - even if we weren't doing a blog hop ;)

Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!

Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal Firefly bento lunch
Sailor Boy's Laptop Lunches bento is based on a scene from the (intended) pilot episode, Serenity. It contains dinosaur shaped turkey & colby cheese sandwiches on a bed of Romaine salad. On the side, a heart-shaped hard-cooked egg, Babybel cheese carved with "Shiny", and strawberries. Browncoats will get the references :)  

Mine is an evil laugh! Shiny Firefly bento lunch

Stegosauraus: "Yes... Yes... This is a fertile land and we will thrive. We will rule over all this land and we will call it... This Land." 
Tyrannosaurus Rex: "I think we should call it your grave." 

Stego: "Ah, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!" 
(That's my favourite. I've got that on a t-shirt.)
T-Rex: "Ha ha ha, mine is an evil laugh, now die!"

We will call it This Land sandwich
Just for fun, I made Pickle a Land-wich.

I'm wearing the t-shirt. I take terrible one handed photos.

I also included a Lunchbox Love note. It's the last day to enter my giveaway for an assortment of those. If you haven't already, click here to enter when you find yourself back here after finishing our Firefly blog hop :)

If you're curious or nostalgic, here's the clip of Wash & his dinosaurs:

Now hop along to Veggie-Bento and see how Lise makes a Firefly bento pretty for her 4 year old daughter!

I think it's more shiny than the lunch!

    Yay I get this reference!!! Although he will always be Alpha in my eyes :)

    Great lunch! I want it :)

  4. So clever to carve the shiny into the babybel! I think we all included it. Fun!

    It's all arranged so neatly - the photo is gorgeous!

  5. It cracks me up that Wash plays with dinosaurs. That quote is awesome! Love all of the shininess! And I LOVE the button!

  6. So clever! I love it. Did you catch this week's episode of Castle...lots of Firefly love.

  7. Oh so so Shiny!! I love the Dino scene :D Wash is ridiculous and amazing. And your shirt!! So cool!!

  8. Wash has to be my favourite character & it's funny how lines like 'your sudden but inevitable betrayal' just stick in your memory. Love the button! It's all so shiny!
