The Flies and the Honey....an Aesop Fable
A number of flies were attracted to a jar of honey which had been overturned and placing their feet in it, ate greedily.
While eating, however, they became so smeared with the honey that they could not use their wings, nor release themselves, and they soon died.
As they were dying, they exclaimed, "O foolish creatures that we are, for the sake of a little pleasure we have destroyed ourselves."
Moral: Pleasure bought with pains, hurts_or_Too much of a good thing can be bad.
Both of these recipes are really simple and great for younger children.
