Flies and Cheese

With this beautiful fall weather, we have had frequent visits in our house from the neighborhood flies. Typically my husband and eldest son corner them, catch them with their HANDS (I know, gross, but they're REALLY GOOD at it. . as in better than hitting them with a fly swatter). Then proceed to feed them to the fat spider on our deck. I will admit, the first time I saw my brave husband catch a fly and feed it to a spider, I thought it was pretty neat.
Anyway, I was making mac n cheese the other day for lunch and as the noodles were boiling I noticed something black in the boiling water. Yes, you guessed it, a FLY was in the boiling noodley water! YUCK! What's a mom to do? I immediately got a spoon to fish him out, and then contemplated whether I was going to feed my kids the noodles. . .there was no way I would eat those fly infested, seasoned with bug juice :), noodles with cheese, so down the garbage disposal went the Sponge Bob noodles. Sorry, no pics.

We had a fun morning at a library puppet show. . now, what to make for lunch today?!
