Edible Flies

I was making tortillas for dinner last night. My constant companion, Nate was right there helping.

Nate: Mom, is Crisco edible?

Me: Sure is. Here. have a taste (and yes I did place a decent sized glob of it right in his mouth. Poor kids thought he had hit the jackpot, for about 1/2 of a second.)

Nate: EEEWWW!
Please take a moment and make the worst face you can think of. Now go look in the mirror. Now pretend that's the face Nate made. But funnier

Me: Hysterical with laughter. Sorry, Honey. I didn't think you would find it THAT gross.

Nate: It tastes like FLIES!

So, apparently Nate eats flies. He thinks they are disgusting, but he eats them anyway. I was laughing too hard to get into the details, but his explanation for fly eating involved peanut butter and jelly. . .

Flies count as protein right?

Not Bear Grylls, but we do occasionally watch Survivorman.

At least it confirms he has taste buds. The kid will eat ANYTHING. I mean it. He gets that from his dad.

Yeah, but I developed my ability to eat anything later in life.
