Omnivore's Hundred

The weather outside is crappy, I'm bored to drowsiness by this grant application. Thank God for the World Wide Web.

Y'all know how much I love email quizzes! I got this gem from cilantro & lime .

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.
4) If you've put it on your blog, or emailed it to friends, shoot me an email of your list or post a comment here linking to your results.

Good list too bad my country behinds has had almost all that meat even road kill you know some of my family is real backwoods. Its not telling whats in pots most of the time. But I have lately put down the pig. EXCEPT BACON. Its hard to let it go. Oh and Krispy Kreme glazed HOT! is pure heaven. I could never give it up. I could have an accident doing a u-turn of the Hot sign is on.
