I ate cicadas today — or as I like to call them, "sky lobsters"

I easily gathered eight cicadas while going about my morning chores on Thursday, and I popped them all into the freezer so they would perish quickly and then be ready for a lunch taste test. A couple hours later I cooked 'em up and I served them to myself. I ate giant bugs…and you won't believe what luxury food they taste like!
