A Meal Fit for a Pirate

I love watching the intricate creativity of my older son. He’s taken a liking to my Mac’s Photo Booth application. He uses it to create videos featuring various versions of himself. The character list includes Super Timmy, Spaceman Timmy, Monster Timmy, Panda Timmy, Fireman Timmy, Easter Bunny Timmy and Pirate Timmy.

Tim takes his acting seriously. He really gets into character. That includes costumes, voices, and even his meals. No joke. During his award-winning portrayal of the Easter Bunny he insisted on a lunch of carrots and ranch dressing. Keep in mind this is the kid who I’ve never seen willingly ingest a carrot. (Although, he does love corn and peas.) I was skeptical, but I obliged him.

He ate every carrot on his plate.

Today it was Pirate Timmy at lunch. His lunchtime creation was a sandwich he calls “Pirate Stew.” Yeah, I don’t know why he refers to a sandwich as “stew.”

It’s a meal that he loves along with a cold cup o’ grog…. errr strawberry milk. Here’s the visual recipe. Fair warning, it’s not exactly the most appealing concoction ever to sail the seven seas:

Yee-arrrgh. If you try it out matey, let me know. This scurvy pirate dad would like a second opinion before daring to partake in “Pirate Stew.”

    Yee-aargh a sandwich after my own heart. Hey WT can you make me one of those?

    • He can certainly provide specific instructions on how to assemble it. He’s already talking about bringing goldfish crackers to share with Grandpa Bear the next time we head to NJ.
