Do we need an excuse to dress up like pirates and eat pirate-themed food?
No, we do not.
Pro tip: Hummus becomes hummus-with-kraken with the relatively simple addition of a bell pepper!
We played pirate-themed games (Pirate Fluxx!), ate plenty of food, and sang some shanties. Feast your eyes on the below: “pie-rate” hats stuffed with braised lamb and sweet potato, a ginger shortbread treasure map, and a tropical chocolate cake with coconut and macadamia nuts.
We also had some delicious island tostadas topped with shrimp ceviche!
Next time, we’ll add in a seafaring quest (aka kayaking), but we all got too busy at the last minute. Pirates: always on the go.
