I don't know what happened

Postby martha » Wed Aug 28, 2013 12:21 am

I just don't know what happened. All winter I researched and dreamed of incorporating more insects in my diet. I eagerly awaited the arrival of the spring and foraging for all kinds of bugs and grubs and hoppers. But now, with each encounter I... I ... just can't seem to get my appetite up for the challenge. There's been a lot of hoppers around and how dearly I wanted to try them... but now... not so much. Anyone up for a hopper-eating challenge? I think this would be a valuable experiment to have "under our belts", if you'll pardon the pun. Winter will come and it will soon be a missed opportunity.

Haggis is standard fair in Scotland and is made of meat and only God knows what else...it is very peppery and is available bloody well everywhere over there. First night in Scotland I had a haggis pizza :lol:

Try breeding your own mealworms, it's very easy and you might find it a lot more palatable :) http://www.wikihow.com/Raise-and-Breed-Mealworms
