  • Creamy scrambled eggs with chives and topped with some toasted grasshopper ! How does it sound ? Appetizing ?  Eww…insect diet ? Dont panic. I don’t eat insects nor do I have any inclination to become an entomophagist (one who eat insects as food) in the future. Even if that means saving the last crumbs of my bread.

Having returned yesterday morning from my almost weeklong NYC trip and not been to Facebook  for a while (that’s how I catch up with latest news ), the day has slipped away from my mind. and strangely I felt no regret whatsoever.
