Tonight, Daina is making Githeri with the jiko on the front patio.
She opened it up to stir and saw little black floating bits. Chris said, "What are those?"
Daina: "Bits of bean"
Chris: "They look like bugs"
Chris takes one out of the pot and looks it over...it has legs...he hands it to me, I confirm, it does look like a bug.
Chris takes it to show a few of the Kenyans that work on the property...we were informed that they are not "bugs", they are "Weevils"...and that they are, in fact, in everything so people in Kenya eat them all the time...it's no big deal.
Now, I would prefer to have dinner with this Weevil,
but our beans came with these...
Daina pulled out all of the floating black pieces and we're eating it anyway.
