Why Yes I Would Jump Off A Cliff : The VGT Omnivore's Hundred

>> Friday, August 22, 2008

Couldn't help but notice the proliferation of Omnivore's Hundred posts that kept popping up in my reader the past couple of days - I decided to play along. You can too!

Why yes, I would jump off a cliff if that's what all the really cool kids were doing.

Here’s what to 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 don't know how to "cross out" so these things, uh, make that, THIS thing will be italicized. Apparently I'm just not that picky!
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.

Bagna cauda is actually pretty good when it's done right - the way my in laws make it at xmas. I can't say that it's my favorite, but it's not bad.
