In honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, I bring you How to Eat like a Pirate!

After looking at the options it is clear that talking like a pirate is way more fun than eating like one. Have a look at the recipe for Hard Tack. I'm pretty sure I have the same recipe for making inedible Christmas ornaments.

Hard Tack

  • Mix one teaspoon of salt with one pound of flour.
  • Add enough water to make a very stiff dough.
  • Flatten the dough to about 1/2 inch and cut it into about 4 inch circles. Punch holes in each circle with a fork.
  • Bake in a flat pan at 250 degrees for two or three hours.

Don't eat the Dole!
Dole is hurting after having to recall 5,000 bags of lettuce yesterday. Go to your fridge now and toss out that bag of lettuce. 11 people were sickened and 2 hospitalized.

5,000 bags of salad mix sought in recall, Dole says. Most packages were sold in U.S.

September 19, 2007 WASHINGTON - Dole Food Co. Inc. has recalled nearly 5,000 bags of its Dole Hearts Delight salad mix after a test by a Canadian food safety agency found E. coli bacteria in the product in a Canadian store. The salad mix also was being sold in a number of U.S. states, including Illinois.
