If you've got a young swashbuckler at home that would give anything to trade in his schoolwork for an eye patch, consider making up a special pirate bento box lunch, like this one shown on Bento Lunch. For this pirate-y fun meal, mama Shannon made a taco muffin (recipe included in the post) with white cheddar cheese on top for the pirate's face, along with an orange cheddar bandanna. The pirate's one good eye is made with icing and his eye patch, mustache and mouth are all made out of cucumber. Throw in some veggies and fruits and you've got a well-balanced lunch that's fit to sail the seven seas!
