Talk Like A Pirate Day Blog Hop

Ahoy, Mateys!!!  Today, September 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!  Do you want to win the Pirate Booty??  See below and hop along like a peg leg pirate to find ye treasure!
Our main entree is an open quesadilla treasure map.  We used flour tortillas, Mexican cheese blend and olives and peppers to create our map including a palm tree and the notorious X that marks the spot of the buried treasure.  We rolled up one end and used a skull and crossbones flag to keep it rolled.

Our vegetable is a carrot cannon and black olive cannon balls.

Our fruit side is a kiwi pirate.  We used chocolate chips and sprinkles to create his eyes, patch and beard.  We also used a strawberry for his bandanna.

Finally, our dessert is a little treasure pouch full of goodies! (a/k/a Rolos)

ps - C.J. is the snack person at preschool tomorrow so we made little pirate ships (blue jell-o with apple slices and a pirate flag) for him to bring and share with his friends.  

  
Every Blogger Buccaneer in this here Hop has a piece o' 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 30 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 sponsored by All Things for Sale/BentoUSA.com!

This here's my piece o' the map!  Good luck, Mateys!
