Not Found In My Cookbooks!

Sometimes one finds himself in a difficult situation and may need to resort to eating things not particularly enticing, nor fit for a recipe book. Hence, we have grubs....haven't you heard the old saying, "let's go grab some grub?" Well, here they are!
This "cookout" takes place in the Amazon. The grubs you see here were actually purchased in a grocery store for our demonstration. For those who have difficulties eating snails, escargots, I do not think this would be something to order as your appetizer.

The grubs are placed on a skewer, properly lined up and placed over a hot fire. They will need to cook for ten minutes. Each was pierced so there would be no explosions...similar to what we do with potatoes when we bake them .
A few special seasonings enhanced the flavors and really added to that outdoor taste. The next question you are probably wondering....Did I taste the finished product? Well, I am the Traveling Food Lady. It tasted similar to chicken..........

Ya know, I'll eat just about anything, once, but I'd have to think about this one really hard!! My first reaction is eeeeeuuuuuuwwwww!
So, c'mon, we know it tastes similar to chicken, but mouth feel? Smell? Texture? 'Fess up. :)

So that's where the "grub" expression comes from. LOL.
