"Mac-arrr-oni" and Cheeze - Talk Like A Pirate Day Hop

Today (September 19th) be International Talk Like a Pirate Day, matey! Yarr! So stay the course, ye scallywags, and click on the Pirate Flag below to see more piratical lunches!  Or be prepared to walk the plank!

Lunch for my Pirate Wench
Gluten and dairy-free "Mac-arrr-oni" and cheeze, Hail Merry Lemon Miracle Tart bite,
frozen Wholly Guacamole, organic apples and green and yellow beans 

These lunches evolved completely around the gluten and dairy-free Namaste "Say Cheeze" macaroni I had made - since I was cooking it that morning to pack for lunch, I decided to send it hot for once, in the Lunchbots Thermal container. I didn't need a large box for the rest, so I chose my new purple Lunchbots Uno. Once I decided on the girl silicone baking mold as filler for the small box, since I didn't need to pack much else, the rest clicked into place. Wouldn't it be fun to add a hat pick or ring? Oo! A pirate hat cupcake ring like a Halloween costume...  And since I had my baggie of pirate-themed cupcake toppers out anyway, a pink skull and crossbones cupcake ring and glitter skull and crossbones cupcake pick to keep with the pirate-y theme!

Since I was also going with a girly theme, for a girl pirate (and I hadn't planned ahead for every possible theme when making them,) I popped a few frozen Wholly Guacamole flower shapes into my Lunchbots Dips container (thaws quickly, and retains its shape, unless jostled too much!) And I used a flower veggie cutter to cut a small portion of my left over Hail Merry Lemon Miracle Tart as a fun treat. And to fill space.

I got the cloth pirate girl napkin from Red Poppy Crafts on etsy! Yarrr!

"Prepare to 'Bee' Boarded, Matey!"
GF DF "Mac-arrr-oni" and cheeze, organic plum and grapes, leftover sauteed zucchini-mushroom-kale mix
Little E got hers in an EasyLunchbox, since I was able to heat up the warm stuff right before we left, then add the cool stuff (fruit) in their handy silicone cups after. Since I don't have any pirate-y utensils, I just grabbed a random small fork. Happened to be a bee one I got at Target's Dollar Spot. Which made for a cute pun, so worth not matching the theme!

Little E also got a pirate face cupcake ring, silver skull and crossbones cupcake ring, and skull and crossbones pick to give her lunch a quick and easy pirate theme as well!

Walk the Plank!
