The Omnivore’s Hundred

I found this on one of my favorite blogs: Last Night's Dinner. Since, I seem to be on a Meme kick, I decided I had to try it. Want to play along? It’s simple:

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 at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.

It's an interesting list from PB&J to Lobster Thermidor... still a lot out there that I've never tried. But even if I haven't had Nettle Tea, I have had a Nettle Frittata...

Oh dear, I've only eaten seven of them, and one of those was the donut!

Kim:

I'm all over this list and of course I'm stealing it. :)

I've resisted the meme until now!
I think this will have to be my Monday post.

Fun post!! I am also stealing it :)

OOH!! This one is fun and different. I'm gonna have to fill it out for my blog too.

There's a lot I haven't tried either or even heard of!

Robin Ensign:

Yep I'm stealing it too... you'll have to check myspace page for my answers.

You can find Pocky at IndoChina market in Goleta (Kmart shopping center). It's a slim crunchy cookie stick dipped in chocolate. Various flavors and styles. Good stuff!

Krista responds: Thanks for the tip, I'll have to try it!
