Doctor Who, that is. Thirty odd years ago, I first watched Jon Pertwee regenerate into Tom Baker on Public Television…my first taste of this odd rebirth of the titular character. Half a lifetime later, I’m clear across the country eagerly awaiting Twelve’s arrival with my daughter and a gaggle of Whovians. Heck, I’m blogging about it on the interwebs. Who’d have thunk it?
Scout and I have tickets to see the new Doctor’s first episode, “Deep Breath” at the local movie theater on Monday night. But, I’m kicking off the weekend with a “Lunch for Twelve” Blog Hop with some of my favorite geektastic bloggers, Edible Geekery.
If you’ve just materialized from Beneficial Bento, “Welcome!”. Please hit the hop button at the end of this post to continue on to see what wonders await at What’s in Our Lunch Bags, and hop around until you’re back with me. You’re not going to want to miss a single site. Trust me, he’s the Doctor.
I packed Scout’s Planetbox “Rover” full of references from the Series 8 trailer. I was thrilled to see Madame Vastra of the Paternoster Gang, and can only imagine that Jenny and Strax aren’t far behind. I love that little potato headed fellow, Strax. He and the TARDIS are represented above as a couple of Trader Joe’s Salted Crunchy Peanut Butter sandwichs on Alpine Valley Organic Honey Whole Wheat Bread. The TARDIS cutter is part of a set from the Doctor Who merchandise over at Lakeland in the UK. Strax and the Dalek came from Warpzone Prints. (Though, ThinkGeek now has a similar set, and the shipping won’t give you a coronary.) I slid a layer of Trader Joe’s Cheddar Rockets under Strax to support the upper sandwich…and, to add a little crunch with lunch.
The organic cantaloupe Dalek is hiding amongst champagne grapes and organic raspberries, poised to exterminate. I couldn’t resist the berries. I’m utterly smitten with the dead sexy, red silk lining of the new Doctor’s coat, and had to include a splash of red in this lunch to echo that.
A honeydew T-Rex is perched atop a stack of organic Rainbow carrot planks. Rex’s tail was a bit to large for the space, so I bobbed it and flipped it around to look like he was swishing it on his rampage through London. At least, I think it’s London in the trailer…I’ve been arduously avoiding spoilers other than the official trailer, which I’ve embedded at the bottom of this post for you.
Now, don’t forget to click the “Lunch for Twelve” button immediately below to travel through space and time to What’s in Our Lunch Bags. Karen is so ridiculously talented, I know she has something fabulous in store.
