Give Me t’ Good Plate, Mate
International Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19th. I think it’s a fun thing to do and a good way to get kids interested in history.
International Talk Like a Pirate Day
The holiday was created in 1995 by John Baur and Mark Summers, two friends who were playing racquetball and decided to inject some fun into their game by talking like pirates. They soon declared September 19th as International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and the holiday has since gained a cult following.
People often dress up in pirate costumes, talk like pirates, and engage in activities such as treasure hunts, rum drinking, and pirate-themed parties. Businesses also often participate in the holiday by offering special pirate-themed promotions, and schools sometimes incorporate pirate-themed lessons and activities into their curriculum.
International Talk Like a Pirate Day is a playful holiday that provides a fun escape from the daily grind and allows people to let their inner pirate run wild. So grab your eye patch, hoist your Jolly Roger, and join in the fun on September 19th!

Cream cheese and gorgonzola make this cheese ball a hit.
These fruit boat appetizers look great on a pretty plate, are tasty and good for you.
You can think of these little “boats” as upside-down deviled eggs!

Serve these meatballs with rice and a nice salad. You can also have them as an appetizer.
