National Chocolate-Covered Cricket Day

OH BOY... its October 14th...
After searching high and low, there's this freaky goth store on Melrose that carried a bunch of edible bugs. I walked into the store and giggled at all the weird freeze dried and stuffed animals.

As I bought the little bugs, I striked up a conversation with the store owner about how today in Chocolate Covered Cricket Day and this is the only place in LA I could find them... she said "Wow, I'll make millions today!"

So heres what they look like...

I didn't mind them, it kinda tasted like a Kit-Kat bar. So I had 2 of them...
Now Jen was alittle worried...
Somehow I got her to try a little piece, as she gagged...

National Homemade Cookies Day

aka. October 1st

Last night we had to hand make cookies, and none of that store bought cookie tube crap, I mean real flour, eggs, butter and sugar stuff. Man it was a mess, but at 2am we finally had 2 big batches of cookies. I wanted peanut butter chocolate chip and jen wanted pumpkin iced.
Check out my blog to see a few photos from the night:

For the whole month of October I am going to try to part take in whatever national food holiday it is. To see the whole list check out this site I am using: www.tfdutch.com/foodh.htm . In the end I'll make a small zine of all 31 comics.
