Those Filthy Philistines

Waxing nostalgic, James stretched out on the couch to watch Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern featuring foods from the Philippines. Every dish of adobo brought back sweet memories of his mom and the meals she made for him growing up.

Bub sat on the floor and followed along, but after one too many featured meals of balut (duck embryo eaten in the shell), stir fry with coconut grubs, and pork-filled frog bellies, he exclaimed,

"I hate the Philistines. They're gross!"

I don't know about the Philistines,
but I know when we visit the Philippines,
I plan to pack peanut butter in my bag.
