Bugs for Dinner?

Today was the first day of Spring Break, and we had lots of fun.
Jaymi had a Sparks sleepover last night, and we picked her up this morning.
This afternoon, I took her to the Bug Zoo. She learned lots of fascinating facts about various insects, bought a stuffed snail, and then we decided to create a bug restaurant at home and pretend the whole dinner was made out of bugs!
We had fried worms (sausages) served on a bed of leaf bugs (sunflower sprouts), grass (alfalfa sprouts) and eggs (chickpeas), crispy leaf bugs (potatoes) and bug blood (ketchup), bug guts and eggs (cooked spinach and feta cheese), and grasshopper juice (lime ice cream, milk, strawberries and a banana.

And for dessert, we had three very special treats that we bought at the Bug Zoo.
Salt & vinegar crickets, cheddar cheese worms (larvae), and chocolate-covered ants.
For real!
I can't believe it...she loved it all!!
And I can't believe we actually tried some of each, as well!
