Ahoy me hearties!
Yo ho ho and shiver me timbers, today be t’ best day o’ t’ year. Arr, aye, today be ‘International Talk Like a Pirate’ Day!
T’ celebrate I made Captain Nicholas a swashbuckling lunch with an extra surprise for snack time. Aye, dressin’ up like a pirate be one o’ his favourite things t’ do, so he was happy with his booty. Later he told he especially loved the jolly roger flag.
The pirate schooner and sail are cut from a ham, cheese and spinach sandwich with a cheese mast on a sea of lettuce. I drew a jolly roger and the portholes with edible ink pens, and added a side of cherry tomatoes.
I precut the apple to make it easier for Nicholas to eat and put the pieces back together held with a rubber band to stop the pieces going brown. I then drew on the pirate face with an edible ink.
Batten down t’ hatches and happy Pirate Day to ye!
I’m linking our pirate lunch up to Eats Amazing’s Fun Food Friday, a weekly round-up of fun and creative food.
I wish Id had you to pack lunches for me when I was a kid! That sandwich ship is awesome. Nicholas looks cute as a button – Jamie never liked to dress up, so I will live vicariously through Nicholas!!
Thanks Di 🙂 They don’t look like that every day! We had a period where Nicholas didn’t like dressing up which made dressing-up days at pre-school rather stressful, but now he’d happily wear his costumes ALL the time!!!
wow thats grrrreat m’hearty!!! x
