Preparing a Buggy Meal
By: Lydia Shaarda
Have you ever wondered how to cook some kind of exoctic, werid and unusual meal or snack? Well, it’s not hard and it’s fun! A bug might not be people’s first choice, but in some countries around the world, bugs are a downright delicious meal! This article will tell you how to cook white ants, a harmless little bug that makes a scrumptious snack! It all starts when rain knocks on your door……….
Pitter, patter. Pitter, patter. The steady raindrops and dark clouds are your cue that it’s almost time to begin the collecting. For now, get together the things you’ll need. Hurry into the kitchen and get out a cup and a pot or pan. Set the pan on top of the stove and take the cup with you to go find a simple digging utensil. Anything from a shovel to a stick will work. Now you’re ready to start!
The sun peeks out from behind the clouds. The last of the raindrops silently falls onto the muddy ground. A brilliant rainbow lights up the sky. You need to get out and start the collecting! You go outside with your cup and digging utensil. Find a soft dirt surface, preferably and dirt road or garden(If it’s a garden, take care not to dig up anybody's crops). When you get your dirt surface, look for holes in the ground. When you find some, carefully dig up the hole. If a long black ant like bugs crawl out, you’ve hit the jackpot! Continue doing this until you have a desired amount of ants. Then, go into the kitchen and pour clean water into the cup to wash the ants. After letting the ants soak in the water form a minute, drain the water and repeat the soaking process once more. Next, dump the ants into your pot and start the fire. Stir the bugs for about five minutes, then pick one up, eat it and see if it’s crunchy. If not, repeat the process until the ants are crunchy. If the ant you ate was crunchy, sprinkle salt on your snack and enjoy!
Now you know how to cook a meal your friends most likely don’t know how. Not only have you expanded your cookbook, but you’ve also made a cool memory! This activity is especially fun with friends! It’ll bring many good laughs! ANd while you’re collecting, take a minute to admire that beautiful rainbow God has made. Besides, He’s the one enabling you to do this!
