I thought I would get interactive with this fun blogger meme from Andrew at Very Good Taste. I originally saw it while reading the lovely From whence the sweet bird sang. Here's what I am 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.
