Sample plate of food
Bruschetta topped with cream and crickets
Salsa with superworms
Chips with superworms
Creole rice with crickets
Trying my first Cajun cricket. Super crunchy and juicy at the same time
Creamed corn with mealworms
The legs got stuff in my teeth and I couldn’t get them out.

Do you love bruschetta? How about chocolate chip cookies? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Would you eat it if you knew it had crickets in it? My answer was never. But then my son was looking up at me and said “mommy I thought you could do anything?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ugh! They always get us right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, I did eat the cricket. And I got the legs stuck in my teeth. But I didn’t care. I remained a hero to my son. My daughter refused to let me kiss her for a week. And was demanding I wash my mouth out with soap. 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But the experience will be in our memories forever.
