WIHTWH: seasonal delicacies

Dry season: mice on a stick
Boiled and salted field mice, skewered.
"Crunchy and delicious."

Rainy season: termites

Caught, drowned, dewinged, fried in oil, salted.
"Tastes like popcorn."

Shish-kamice is perfect. No ma'am, have not tried them. My adventursome spirit does not tilt that direction.
