The Omnivore's 100


I saw this on jennifreckles crafts and was very interested. I am very curious about what others have tried, as well. I don't even know what some of these things are, but I'll have to look them up later. I've been a vegetarian for about 7 years now, so any of the meat dishes I've tried I definitely haven't had since then. I'm not a very adventurous eater, but I will try (almost) anything that is non-meat. I'm not going to tag anyone specifically, but if you read this blog, please participate and leave a comment so I can read your list!

Here’s what you do:
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 just put no in front of these because I can't figure out how to cross them out)
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.

Sorry your friend was wrong about calamari! It's actually one of the few foods my extremely picky 5 year old will eat. He loves seafood, but won't touch macaroni & cheese or spaghetti o's. Go figure.
