No bugs for dinner please


June 1, 2011 by admin

The boys have a book they like to read before bed called “I love you stinkyface“about a boy who is going to bed asking his mom if she’d still love him if he was all these crazy, weird and horrible things.

There is a line in it that goes “…and what if I ate bugs instead of peanut butter.” My guys always chorus a loud EEEEEWW! at this moment.  Well, I totally freaked out when I was making lentil soup the other night.

This is what appeared in my soup:

Gagging.  Frantic phone calls to my sister.  A tweet to foodie-friends on twitter.  A million google-searches later.

Part of lentil.

I guess I see it.

Maybe the guys would have been thrilled.  But honestly, the mystery behind the food is just one more reason I love eating out.

    I guess we don’t SEE The bugs in take-out/eating out. You always make me laugh. I needed that!

    I hope that ‘s a bug that your son has in his fingers.
