Arrrg! It is talk like a pirate day! To celebrate I made my three little shipmates some pirate bento grub. I used cupcake topper rings to accessorize my very simple lunches. I made them up two ways, one in Laptop Lunches and one is EasyLunchboxes.
Each has rolled up turkey and string cheese with a pirate ring around it. Big black grapes have been skewered through palm tree picks. If you have never tried black grapes go for it. They are yummy just like their green, red, and purple friends. A banana muffin and carrots have pirate hat rings decorating them. I bake tons of muffins at a time and freeze them. In the morning pop them in a lunchbox and they are ready to eat by lunchtime.
Here it is Laptop Lunches style:
Here is the EasyLunchboxes pirate lunch:
Me Bento Bloggin Mateys and I are having a Bento Booty Treasure Blog Hop. Every Blogger Buccaneer in this here Hop has a piece of the 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!This here's my piece o' the map! Good luck, Mateys!
UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.
This is what I used to make today's lunch:
