More like "What I haven't eaten!"

I saw this on Lisa Conmara's blog, What We Eat. It looked fun, so here we go!

So, 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) Crossout any items that you would never consider eating. (I will put these in italics)
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at linking to your results.

We don't drink tea, coffee, or alcohol, so I crossed out any of these that I know are the afore mentioned. I am sure I missed some... And I am sure that some of these nobody in their right mind would eat, but I don't know what half of these "edibles" are on these list!

4 Tasty Tidbits:

You didn't mark Spam. Haven't you ever had Spam?

I keep seeing this list all over the food blogosphere. I guess I'm going to have to eventually jump on the bandwagon. Like you, I don't know what half of them are. I'll probably look them up on wikipedia for fun.

There, I marked Spam, thanks for telling me! I was craving a fried spam, mayo, tomato, and cheese sandwhich the other day. I could here my arteries threatening to close... :-)

Elle said...

What? you won't eat frogs legs or sweetbreads? Geez...

hehe, neither would I!!!! ugh.

OH MY GOD! I cannot believe you crossed out Nettle tea! Its delicious and not a tea leaf in sight! I'm also shocked you dismissed the cream tea but I think thats a cultural misunderstanding... a cream tea is a plate of fresh scones, smothered in melting butter, delicious jam and topped with clotted cream (which should be illegal!) - it is probably THE most luxorious experience of a womans life!
