It’s the second week of June! Have you made it to Pixar Fest yet? It’s going on from now until September 3, so you’ve got time to get there.
Ten years??? I can’t believe it’s already been 10 years since WALL-E was in theatres. Again…time flies! We’re in week 9 of our Pixar Fest celebration posts, and this adorable robot is our feature this week.
WALL-E, short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-class, is the last robot left on Earth. He spends his days tidying up the planet, one piece of garbage at a time. But during 700 years, WALL-E has developed a personality, and he’s more than a little lonely. Then he spots EVE, a sleek and shapely probe sent back to Earth on a scanning mission. Smitten, WALL-E embarks on his greatest adventure yet when he follows EVE across the galaxy.
I hadn’t realized how long it had been since I’ve watched WALL-E. I was watching it again today, and seriously, this movie is just so adorable! If you haven’t watched it lately, I highly recommend you do!
Dirt Pudding “Plant Samples”
Okay, the plant doesn’t look too extremely plant-like, but it tastes good! For my plant samples dirt pudding, I just used chocolate pudding with crushed Oreos and topped it with a green frosting plant!
Why dirt pudding plant samples, you ask? If you remember, EVE’s directive was to find life on earth, and she did thanks to WALL-E. As my daughter and I were watching, the captain of the Axiom says, “Happy 700 years on the Axiom! to celebrate, get your free sep-tu-a-centennial cupcake in a cup!” Of course, I said, “We could have made a cupcake in a cup!” Maybe next time.
If you have fondant or royal icing, you’ll probably be able to get a cuter plant sample (but nothing is as tasty as frosting). Enjoy!
WALL-E and EVE are featured in “Together Forever” A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular during Pixar Fest. Think back to the movie. Do you remember that WALL-E watches HELLO, DOLLY on his VHS player over and over? Appropriately, WALL-E and EVE “dance in a stellar field and take off in flight from the castle, personified by fireworks.” So cute! If you get to Pixar Fest, be sure to make time for this nighttime spectacular!
