International Talk Like a Pirate Day 2014

Pirate Pucco

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.

pirate apple - aarrr!

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!

  1. 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!!!

    • MCT, I’m with you–I really miss Nahrmann, though in no small part because of what Nico enjoys so much that got this thread started. The banter between Nahrmann and Merlin, or Nahrmann and Cayleb, or all three when they were together, was priceless enrietaenmtnt. All three were, each in their own way, champion wise-arses.
