The Omnivore's 100


One of my favorite blogs, Citymama, posted this very cool meme recently. How could I not post my own?

(Okay so my list is pretty lame because I don't eat fish or seafood. Ah well. But I didn't cross out most of the seafood, b/c I was using this as my criteria: would I eat it if I HAD to? Most seafood I would -- I would then gag it up, but if it would win me millions of dollars on Fear Factor, then I would. The stuff I crossed out I would not be able to eat for a million dollars. No way.)

If you want to join in, here's what you need to do:

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.
