Serve Out Of This World Meals In These Planetary Body Bowls

It Came From Outer Space

No, this is not a satellite image of our beautiful planet – it’s a bowl! A serving bowl to be exact and one I’d be reluctant to actually put food in. Oh, who am I kidding? I’d put all sorts of themed food on these beauties! Hit the jump for a few more. 

The bowls are melamine, fourteen inches in diameter, and not dishwasher or microwavable safe. Though really, don’t you want to be able to say you touched the sun and it didn’t burn you?

The dishes are going for $19.99 a piece at ThinkGeek. What kind of food could you see yourself serving on one of these? Our initial thoughts: Moon pie on the moon, lava cake or chili on the sun, watercress salad on Earth.

My hope is that they’ll come out with a complete set, a dish for each of our planets. That way you could create a solar system buffet!
