In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is today’s entry:
#30: Blue Milk and Bok Choy
The wonder that is the famous blue milk of Tatooine has a giant cult following of it’s own. With a screen time of maybe 10 seconds, the “pour heard ’round the galaxy” has made blue milk the drink of choice for farm boys and future Jedi. And it took me years to realize that Aunt Beru was cooking bok choy in the kitchen.
Side note: Aunt Beru always looked like the only one in the Star Wars universe that didn’t have a costume. Everyone else is wearing robes and flight suits. Meanwhile, she is wearing the latest 1970’s fashion from the JC Penny’s catalogue!
