UPDATED: The 100 things that Very Good Taste thinks everyone should eat at least once in their life.

Good Morning Lovelies!
Don't worry, your nail post is up next!  But first....
So...I'm checking out my blogroll and seeing what all was posted since I got on at lunch yesterday and I saw Project Danielle had posted this list she saw on Very Good Taste , about the 100 things that Very Good Taste thinks everyone should eat at least once in their life.

Me and Rob both LOVE trying new things and jump at the opportunity!  So my immediate reactions was "I GOTTA DO THIS!!!"   And it looks like fun, so here's my 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.

you know I'd do this but pretty much everything would be crossed out! Can I just like the like 3 things I do eat?

Unknown said...

lol, I forgot to cross out the things I wouldn't eat. Like sweetbread and black pudding. I have to fix mine, lol

This is such a fun game. I didn't realize I was so advanturous. There are only like 5 things on there I'd refuse to eat/haven't eaten yet.

I love that list and pretty much agree everyone should have eaten those things at least once.
There isn't much on there that I wouldn't eat or haven't eaten but I could probably think of some additions to that list.
Are you going to make it your project to cross things off that list?

I would LOVE to copy and paste the list to my blog and stuff...unfortunately, I have yet to figure out how to get Blogger to allow me to paste ANYTHING I've copied. Any pointers?
