Insects to the Next Level

Insects to the Next Level

Insects in the Backyard is thought to be the country’s first restaurant to look past the deep fryer and utilize the six-legged critters as fine-dining ingredients. Executive Chef Mai Thitiwat stuffs fresh ravioli with crab and water beetle meat, creates a beurre blanc sauce infused with ant eggs for its acid kick, and mixes powdered silk worm with mascarpone cheese for his creamy tiramisu. “I’m not making scary food,” he says.

Wild honey and locusts …nothing new there.

The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God. It is written in Isaiah the prophet: “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way” — “a voice of one calling in the desert, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’ ”

And so John came, baptizing in the desert region and preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him.

Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River. John wore clothing made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. (Mark 1:1-6)


Texas can pray all it wants but such babbling will not reach the ears of the Living God until Texas repents.

Too bad Cultural Christianity and the Cold Community no longer go out to see John the Baptist and repent while confessing their sins.

Something Texas should be doing with God’s warning rains after Hurricane Harvey.
