It has been a while since we had a theme dinner. This one got thrown together on short notice, and rather than center on a movie, it went with a book. This book:
Or, if you want the back cover:
|All these books and...yes, this one again. Because we haven't read it in at least ten minutes.|
This has definitely been the book of the week, and was just begging for a meal of bugs to go with it. I'm actually not averse to feeding my kids real bugs, but Walmart doesn't exactly carry them, and as I said, this was last-minute. So, we began the evening with:
Maggots in a hearty swamp sauce, sprinkled with cricket legs and chopped cockroaches.
On the side: individually prepared two-eyed spiders (because Mommy couldn't decide what she was making).
And, of course, the classic bugs on a log. Some had squished flies in peanut butter, others were filled with cream cheese and crumbled grasshoppers.
Everything was a big hit!
Tasty spider legs
and sweet squished flies.
So how come I'm stuck with mashed 'naners???
