You’re Making Me Hungry

Totally just stole this meme from Fond of Snape, who stole it from Faith who stole it from Andrew, who created this list of 100 things that I think every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life. He says:

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 linking to your results.

And I’m guessing there are others I wouldn’t eat on this list, if I’d taken the time to google search, but the boy is up and I’m pressing publish already! But, for the record, I’ve had 26 out of 100 on the list and I’m thinking that’s not too bad…

  1. re: Fugu – it’s not if it’s cooked wrong, it’s if it’s CUT wrong. If you nick the liver, the toxins can spill out into/onto the flesh and then you die 😉 But the flesh is quite good, little tingly on your tongue!
