A bit big for bento....

We had the 6 year old's class party today. The main thing we had for lunch was a huge hit so I thought I'd share it, even though it's not small enough for bento!

The theme of the party was pirates so we had 2 of these baguette pirate ships - great for a party or even just a playdate! Super quick and easy and got gobbled up! We did one cheese and lettuce and one jam to play it safe.

Cut the baguette, put whatever you want inside, stick pretzels along the sides for oars, throw in some sails and you have a great pirate ship. The best part is that 99% of both got eaten, it was a nice change from regular party food and they served as centerpieces!

Can't take credit for the idea though, saw it on a website and thought it was great. You can download the pirate sails for free here! I printed them out on cardstock and used heavy duty wooden skewers.

Here's our cheese and lettuce version!
