These guys were in this bin at a grocery we visited today. I guess you eat their legs. I have to confess when I was growing up on the farm I was all about frog gigging, but to see this bin of critters in a grocery store just made me sad. I wanted to grab them and run for the nearest marsh. I think it was the way they were piled up, just waiting to die. Ugh.
Of course, that didn’t stop me from going to the deli in this store and getting some fried smelts. Let me tell you too, there is nothing worse than a bad fried smelt. Horrible. I got a whole half of pound of those bad boys and then dumped the whole lot of them in the garbage can of the next grocery we visited.
