It be a fine day to
raise th’ Jolly Roger!
Aye, me hearties, it be officially Speak Like A Scurvy Pirate Day.
Way back in th’ beginnin’ ‘o ’tis blog, I did a message all in scurvy pirate shout, ‘n me thoughts were ‘o makin’ it a recurrin’ theme on Life wit’ Lorelai. All ye pirates seemed to have such a jolly ruckas wit’ Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, A Treasure Find Fer Me.
So, here me be on ’tis grand day, brin’in’ ye another message from th’ salty sea.
It had be a long summer at sea without th’ comforts ‘o a wee sand in me boots ‘n some meat in me belly, when me ship finally sailed into Lorelai Lagoon to set anchor. Th’ pier swayed wit’ th’ tide, ‘n creaked ‘n groaned as we disembarked.
Yarr, t’was a warm summer evenin’ wit’ just th’ hint ‘o an autumn crispiness in th’ air as th’ sun set in all its glory. Me belly was a rumblin’ fer anythin’ that did no’ crawl out ‘o th’ bunghole. I scurried me way to Lucky Luke’s to scarper me some grub ‘n a bottle ‘o spiced rum.
Th’ barmaid was a beauty to be sure, ‘n offered me a late summer – early fall grub from over th’ fire. Pullin’ her atop me knee, I drew close to her ear, and told her as long as it did no’ come from th’ sea, it would be fine wit’ me. Th’ wench jumped up ‘n swished her skirts as she quickly went behind th’ bar fer me bottle.
After I swallowed down a couple ‘o snorts ‘o spiced rum, th’ barmaid came wit’ me skilly and duff. Th’ sight ‘n smells were beyond me imaginin’s–an onion seasoned chicken, baby red potatoes, ‘n apples grilled over th’ fire. She hoisted a tray full ‘o crusty bread ‘n fresh butter, tomatoes ‘n cucumbers from th’ garden out back. T’was times like these that gave me twisted thoughts ‘o bein’ a land lubber.
Bein’ th’ barnacle-covered scurvy pirate that me be, I managed to secret away wit’ a recipe. Now, I do no’ want to be known as selfish or greedy, so I gunna share it wit’ ye. ‘O course, if a few gold doubloons happen to fall into me pockets, well, who would I be to object to such a kind gift?
Onion Seasoned Grilled Chicken
1-packet Onion Dip Mix
4-6 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
Rub cleaned Chicken with the Onion Dip Mix. Place in a ziplock bag and refrigerate at least 1-hour before using. Let chicken warm to almost room temperature before placing on the grill.
‘Tis makes fer a tasty treat indeed, when ye have be out at sea fer so long. I woe ye find it to ye likin’, me bucko.
‘N b’fore I be off, lift high ye glass matey in a toast to me ‘n thee.
“Here’s to ourselves, ‘n hold ye luff, plenty ‘o prizes ‘n plenty ‘o duff.” ~ A fair fine drinkin’ toast as recorded in Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Th’ scabrous dog in me do no’ be knowin’ what to think ’bout bein’ called “cute”. But th’ chicken were devine tis true.
Oh, you’re responding to all of our comments in “pirate speak”? Me thinks I need to leave several comments LOL 1. I’m totally trying this recipe. 2. I’m only half-way through today and it’s been awful so far, so I’d like to use the line from one of my favorite movies, “Pirates of the Caribbean” : WHY IS THE RUM ALWAYS GONE?!
A fair fine wench as yerself shouldn’t be havin’ a bad day. Arrr, Capt’n Jack Sparrow, th’ bloody rotter!
Come on th’ poop deck, and I share me spiced rum.
Oh no, no plank for me! Lorelai you are just too cute. I smiled all the way through it. Very cute idea. And the recipe looks really good. Looking forward to trying it.
No plank fer ye, eh? Avast, ye best be gettin’ on swabbin’ th’ decks!
VERY cute blog post! My oldest was so into pirates (he knew the history of pirates around the world at age 3) that we had our contractor make him a big ship he could play on!
When th’ wee laddie comes ‘o age, maybe I let him swab th’ deck o’ scrub th’ galley. If he be real lucky, I let him polish me lookin’ glass.
That was super cute! You make a better pirate than I do for sure!
Had me a ruckas writin’ th’ message. Glad it was to ye likin’.
This sounds delicious. I think onions add so much flavor to a dish. Thanks so much for sharing at the Pinworthy Projects Party.
This is very good…and SUPER EASY! 🙂
