20th Century Fox

After 2016's reboot of the franchise (in the form the generally well-reviewed sequel trilogy), and a slated slew of standalone films like the upcoming Solo, it does seem as if every day is a celebration of all things Star Wars and Star Wars-related. 

But any true SW's fan worth their weight in bantha poodoo knows that May 4, specifically, is the one true dedicated and designated day of the year when nerds, film buffs, nerdlingers and nerdy film buffs alike come together to recognize everyone's favorite sci-fi franchise (sorry, Trekkies!) by dressing up, watching the films, and even throwing themed soirees. "May the Fourth be with you." Get it?

On that note, presented here are 27 pun-tastic food recipes that any amateur chef should be able to execute for their Star Wars-themed party. Or, you know, just for yourself if you want to stay at home and watch The Phantom Menace in (shameful?) solitude.

So raise a glass of homemade blue milk, and may the Force be with you.
