What did pirates eat?
We did some research and used our imaginations and came up with the following food for our fridge that is hearty and crude:
Salmagundi - this is a stew made up of whatever was at hand - mixed meats, vegetables, spices cooked up and served on a bed of salad leaves with a oil and vinegar dressing.
Fishy Stew - any fish - fresh or salted cooked up into a soupy stew.
Salt Pork n' Beans - Fresh meat was preserved by salting it. Dried beans were available in both the Old World (Europe) and the New world (the Americas).
Johnny Cakes - these are a Caribbean specialty of deep fried balls of dough.
The pirate meals shown are the ones created by Bag of Tricks for the pirate fridge.
Additional meals can be found with the ship's grill top stove and the tavern's buffet table.
Pirate Cool Chest (fridge) with 7 custom meals - This barrel shaped fridge may be placed on the floor or on a surface. Instead of traditional (Maxis) meals this fridge serves a choice of 7 pirate meals.
Four of the meals, Fishy Stew, Salt Pork 'n' Beans, Johnny Cakes and Salmagundi (a Pirate pot Luck Stew) are regular meals cooked on any stove.
The Cold Sausage & Bread, is a hearty "quick meal" ready to eat straight from the fridge. A wedge of cheese or slice of bread replaces those modern day chips and, as a bonus, since there is no wrapper, these snacks leave no mess behind; No EP Required
Brick Grilling Stove with 3 custom meals - combines a stove with a grill so sims may do either at this single no-burn appliance (No fire risk). Some (very small amount of) cooking skill gain with each meal made/grilled up to 8.5 points. To raise cooking skill higher than that will require actively studying it.
All Sims may grill fish and those with a skill of 5 or higher will will also be able to grill the chicken or the meat.
This grill allows sims to prepare the meats before grilling them is a prep area is available which will boost the food points in these meals (just as it does with regular cooked meals); No EP Required
