In honor of National Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19th, I made some cookies to demonstrate a few of the things that you will need if you plan to celebrate.
First off, you will need a red sash to tie around your waist and a pair of big brown boots.
The next thing you’ll need is a fancy eye patch (think “One-Eye’d Willy).
But don’t forget to bring a bouquet of roses for your Wench. Romance isn’t entirely dead, after all.
Whatever you do to celebrate, have fun. But please try to limit your pirate behavior to jargon and spiced rum. I’m pretty sure the other stereotypical pirate activities, like pillaging, are frowned upon. Probably even illegal.
Now go check out Melissa’s awesome pirate over at Simply Sweets by Honeybee. She seriously blows me away every month. You can also link up your version of pirate cookies over there.
Next month, we’re celebrating a more mainstream holiday. We’ll be “cookie-ing” Halloween candy. I guess it’s almost time to put summer behind us, and move on to fall!
