Talk Like A Pirate Day

Yo ho ho! A Pirate's Life For Me!

Today is Talk Like a Pirate Day! AND a Bento Booty Blog Hop! Arrrrr!! 
Come and celebrate with us and of course talk like a pirate! 

**and be sure to read th' whole post, despite me talking like a pirate, 
fer some info on some bento booty that ye could win**

AHOY Mateys! It be a salt-blasted dark day and a storm be coming. Shiver me timbers! So we took our pictures on th' front lawn. This here be our lunch to celebrate Talk Like A Pirate Day:
In this here main compartment Eliana has her treasure map cheese quesadilla. (Me got th' idea from Little Nummies! Check er out!) Me used kitchen scissors t' cut th' tortilla into a map shape. Me chose a sun dried basil tortilla since it had more of a worn treasure map feel t' it. Me then used me food writer markers and drew a map on top!

We went apple pick'n on Monday an' picked a few pears too. So me cut aloft one o' our freshly picked Asian pears an' put it with some cucumber in the upper right compartment with a treasure map pick. 

Me found a blastedly cute pirate themed cupcake picks an' wrapper set very cheap and decided to get them fer this!  They be nay reusable but they worked perfect with this here lunch. Me do prefer blithering plastic food safe reusable picks though because of course they last longer and can be reused.  ((There are some Pirate Ship Cupcake Picks that me found on Amazon and some pirate cupcake topper rings from All Things For Sale that me will keep in me mind for another time :))

What be in this here treasure chest?!
Pirate's Booty. Literally. We made a "treasure chest" out of pretzels ("glued" together by melted chocolate).  Eliana munched on the pretzels while we made this and.. avast!.. there weren't enough pretzels to make a lid on our treasure chest LOL! It works just as well me thinks! The treasure chest is overflowing with Pirate's Booty treasure and some Sixlets "pirate jewels" ((Sixlets are made in a peanut free facility!!))

    1. Thanks Mama!! I normally don't mix the fruits and veggies together but with the pear and cucumber I felt it worked out ok. She didn't mind it and ate it all. I'm not sure with other veggie/fruit combos she would have been okay with it lol
