friends in my food

23 April, 2011

Many of the fruits, vegetables and bulk dry goods I buy at the souk have some sort of insect or other critter in them.  I don’t particularly enjoy picking them out of the food before I cook it, but it is better than the alternative, and I’ve gotten to the point where I’m no longer squeamish about it.

While cutting up some cauliflower for dinner tonight, I happened upon this little guy.  He’s the most beautiful critter yet to grace my produce.   We played for a while, he posed for pictures, and now he is vacationing somewhere in a trash heap along the Oued Ziz.
