Worms For Dinner
When I was a kid, I used to love that book How to Eat Fried Worms. Maybe it was reading the book multiple times that ignited a little mischief in me the other night. Pierce said, "Mom! What's for dinner?" as I worked away at the stove. "Worms," I casually responded. Reid, listening in, said in a whiny 3 year old voice, "Mooooooooommm! WORMS ARE YUCKY!" And Pierce said, "Mom, we're not REALLY having worms, are we?" To which I giddily lifted my bowl and said, "Sure we are, look!"
spaghetti squash worms, lovingly tossed with parmesan, garlic salt, and a bit of butter. But then soon enough my twin three year olds were happily declaring, "Mom! Worms are YUMMY! I like worms!" As for me...well....I had to agree!
