First Mateys there is the small matter of lunch…

For me young son I have created a lunch in an Easylunchboxes container celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day…

  • For starters, I made a sandwich skull and crossbones using cookie cutters (Wilton Skull & Wilton Dogbone).
  • The sandwich is placed over pretzel sticks to create a “wooden” backdrop.
  • I then layered some mango with blueberries and topped them with a carrot “X” to mark the spot for my pirate ship pick to set sail.
  • Some giant grape cannons raise up my cheese “Yo Ho” cut with mini letter cookie cutters.
  • Halved cucumbers are home to a parrot pick.




Now off with ya, ye land lubbers and no cheatin’ or ye shall walk the plank… ;) Well ok maybe not the plank but if you don’t follow each and every clue you won’t know where to enter to win…

 Here is ye clue from this here blog…

 Now click the image below (or the link to the right) to continue on to the next blog in the hop: A Boy and His Lunch

Hop ends Sunday, Sept 23rd at midnight!
