The Omnivore's 100

I first came across this on Lulu's blog, but since then it has popped up on several others, so I thought, what the heck and decided to do it myself.

This is what you do and here are the results:

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. I don't know how to cross things out - I will make them italic instead and maybe someone can tell me how to do crossed out text
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at linking to your results.

Oh, man, you didn't like steak tartare! That's okay, some of my best friends won't eat raw beef. :-)

You should try Eggs Benedict. Not because it's all gourmet or anything like that, it's just a really tasty way to eat a poached egg.

LOL at the chrysanthemums!


Is it the snake drink about what you speak about ?

Hiya Billy, long time, how's you? Seems you ain't blogging these days? Hope nothing wrong.

Was touched to see Miss Jones' Diary in the list of blogs you'd like to see updated one day :) Who knows, it might just be the push Bridget needs to get started again!

I'm wondering if you have a photo of Baggins sitting on the stairs or in front of a colourful door in Skopelos? If you do, e-mail me. I'm looking to immortalize a cat and thought he would be perfect.
