I pretty much got eaten alive by a mosquito the other night. I slept with the window open during a rainy night. We don’t have any screens since we live in a pretty old building, so it was my fault for wanting to sleep with the window open. I just love sleeping to the sound of rain!
As I was blissfully sleeping, a mosquito feasted on my blood. Sorry for the visual. I woke up with… wait for it… TEN mosquito bites! I’m not even joking. Two of those bites just so happen to be on my face. Lovely! So then with me being me, I decided to google the heck out of mosquitoes.
Did you know that mosquitoes are attracted to the smell of carbon dioxide? That’s how they find us and that’s the reason why they’re always buzzing around our heads. Also, the only mosquitoes that draw blood are females! Mosquitoes normally eat nectar as a part of their diet, but the females need the protein from blood in order to lay eggs.
Now that I’ve officially grossed you out, let’s get to the meal. I’m really new at buying meat, so I’m completely lost about what cut is good for what. I usually just stick to ground beef and chicken breasts. Although this was fun to go out of my comfort zone, I think I’ll stick to my normal meats. Don’t get me wrong, this was good, but it wasn’t amazing. But then again, I’m not really a fan of pork. I guess that makes me a bad judge. Try it for yourself and let me know what you think!
