When in doubt post a meme. Preferably about food.

I know, I know. I have to update at some point.Not much going on but work work work, and for some reason today is like Fall.

For now, here’s a meme I saw at both Meg’s and Carrie’s.

Strike through those you wouldn’t eat on a bet.
Italicize any item you’ll never eat again.
*Asterisk any items you’d be interested in trying but have not yet.

Huh. I’m a foodie. Also it just occured to me they could have put dulse on the list.

You wouldn’t eat Eggs Benedict on a bet? Is it the egg, the hollandaise sauce, the english muffin? Or the Canadian bacon – I suppose you all just call that “bacon.” 🙂

They should also have put squid.

As a side note I don’t think there is anything on that list I wouldn’t eat, other then maybe roadkill. I’ve had mussels, squid, and snail all within the last couple months, and am planning on having eel and frogs legs within the next couple.

People who don’t eat food because it’s “gross” are missing out. Some of that stuff is really good.

I’ll play along on my blog. I’m going to have to look up some of the food as my auntie was fond of having us try new tastes but not telling what it is because then we wouldn’t like it.

You’d probably like aloo gobi. It is potatoes and cauliflower, curried. I can send a recipe.

Get thee some wasabi peas! They’re addictive.
