The Omnivore’s Hundred

Several Slow Travel bloggers have been doing the Omnivore's Hundred Meme started by Andrew on Very Good Taste. Krista was the first Slow Travel blogger to post the meme. Jerry and Kim were next. I love Jerry's cartoon.

Clotilde got into the act today on Chocolate & Zucchini. It is a lot of fun. I don't think of myself as an adventurous eater but I was surprised to see that I've tried many of these on the list.

Here are the rules:

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.

We have a lot of the same foods crossed out. I first thought sweetbreads meant the Portuguese sweetbread served here but after seeing it crossed out on your list, I googled it and found out what it really was...eeeewwww!

Another one who has never tried bagel and lox. You all need to come back to NYC :)

There you go Kim - I'm not so weird after all!

Mind you - I just don't know about someone who has not had a McDonald's Big Mac!

Hey --- I'm not weird.

I come from the land of smoked salmon. I've had bagels. I've had cream cheese on my bagels but I've never added lox. I think I might have tried the salmon spread but we just don't have good lox out here.

Yep. I've never had a Big. Mac. When I used to frequent MickyD's - my burger of choice was always the Quarter Pounder. Big Mac was too thick for me. Plus I thought they meant the 'Meal'. Doesn't that include fries and drink?

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

Yep, the meal includes fries and a drink (for those of us who were totally pigs a hot apple pie for dessert). BTDT
