Omnivore’s Hundred

Here are the instructions:

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 wrote never, 'cause I can't figure out how to cross off in html)
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at linking to your results.

neat Meme, I borrowed it. Why wouldn't you eat Umeboshi or Bellinis?

I don't like pickles, not likely to eat anything pickled, ever. Bellinis not so bad, but a lot of restaurants add cream to their peach puree, they don't ever tell you this, but it'd send me right over the edge. Best to avoid, for moi.
