Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Since "Thar Be Devil T' Pay!" today be Talk Like a Pirate Day th' lasses be hav'n fun pirate themed lunches. Amy  wanted t' wear her pirate outfit t' school an' be a bit put out when I said that she would have t' wear her school uniform. I bought some pirate tattoos an' I let them wear those t' school. All smiles agin :)

Rose's Planetbox Launch Lunch:

carrot sticks and apple slices, ham sandwich pirate ship & chocolate gold doubloon
s'mores goldfish, cantaloupe "cannonballs", strawberries

Ye "Blistering Barnacles!" might notice that this be a carbunculously newplanetbox. It's "Thar She Blows!" their blunderingly new one called th' Launch. It's "Blow Me Down!" a lustily different configuration an' has deeper compartments. Amy "Ye Landlubber!" & Rose both have th' same pirate joke in their lunches. They  don't eat lunch together so they won't mind.

Heidi's EasyLunchboxes Lunch: 
Princess Spaghetti, Captain Waffle apple with carrot sticks underneath
grapes and cantaloupe under a pair of cantaloupe roller skates

Heidi's pirate lunch be based on th' book Ye Can't Scare a Princess. It's a fun an'blistering silly book bout a pirate named Cap'n Waffle who comes t' Cupcake Castle t' search fer th' treasure that be hidden in Princess Spaghetti's Garden. Th' lasses just laugh th' whole way through :) At th' end th' princess gives all o' th' pirates roller skates. Th' "Cap'n waffle" apple be a very abstract representation o' Cap'n Waffle. It's meant t' look like a waffle print on th' apple. It's "Stab That Crustation!" a stretch I know, but it be blunderingly late. I put th' silicone cups in th' side compartments so that I can easily scoop them out when I heat aloft her spaghetti  later.I made some o' th' sticker picks specifically fer today. They will be one time use picks as they be just a sticker taped t' a toothpick.

Every Blogger Buccaneer in this here Hop has a piece o' th' treasure map! You'll need to "collect" each piece and put them together in the right order to find the treasure! You'll want some parchment and a quill, to keep a log with each clue and each number, because there are 39 scurvy pirates running amok with 39 pieces o' the map to collect! 37 pieces will guide you to the hidden treasure (by spelling out the URL where you can enter to win!) and there are 2 bonus pieces with the "secret passwords" to get two chances to win some pirate booty!
