this is fun ............. omnivore's hundred

My sweet niece Lil' Bird came up with this idea for a post. Originally posted it on our food blog PBE

tim at very good taste is doing a little meme called the omnivore's hundred. here's how it works:

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 linking to your results.

here's how we'll do it. first, the list is long and posting all three of our lists would be very long indeed. second, i thought it'd be cool to do a little cross promotion of our individual blogs (so you can see what we've been up to lately, as it has obviously not been food blogging). so, we're posting the original list first. then, immediately below will be a hyperlink to each of our three lists on our individual blogs. click to see how we all fared on vgt's omnivore's 100.

The VGT Omnivore’s Hundred............out of the 100 the ones I have tasted or eaten are in bold......the ones I have not tried I probably won't. If you think I should...... leave a comment.

I was with you when you ate a Krispy Kreme doughnut. And I can't believe you've never had a Jello shot. We'll have some when you come, they are quite, hmmmm refreshing.

I remember eating that donut like it was yesterday.......too bad they aren't that great anymore.........wait I'm glad they aren't good anymore.

I have had jello shots........waaaaay too many of them........just a miss post on my part.

ashpags said... many yummy foods on this list! A few on your uneaten list that I would recommend: Chicken tikka masala and Paneer are both types of Indian food that I have found to be delicious. But, if you're not an Indian-food person, you might not like 'em. And Snake is really good if it's cooked well. =)
