Parmesan crisps / this is an MB specialty, but I just saw Ruth Reichl make them on diary of a foodie, although differently than the recipe provided. No paper, large grate on the cheese, add black pepper and one tablespoon of flour.

Our friend Megan, who runs Marble Valley Farm, told us an interesting story the other day. Her tomato plants are infested with tomato hornworm. This has always been a very difficult infestation for her to deal with (she is totally organic, so can't just drop death spray on them.) But after much research she came across a brief mention on the internet of using a black light in order to find them. She consulted several of her farmer friends and all were skeptical of this technique since none had heard of it before. Still, out of desperation, she made a trip to Spencer Gifts at the local mall, bought a black light, and went out into the fields with it that night. Amazingly, the black light light up the bugs perfectly. She said it was like picking lights off a Christmas tree. In a few hours they picked over a thousand hornworms off the plants (over 10 pounds!) And thus the tomato crop was saved.

One of her hippie workers fried one up and ate it, claiming it was "not too bad". Lucas was unsure of this verdict.
