Omnivore's 100 Meme

If you do this on a blog, link it back to me so I can read it! And it's interesting--I don't know what some of these are and other foods are in TJOC, I just haven't got to them yet.

If you don't have a blog, count up your numbers in the comments! I would love to know!

And I double posted tonight so check both entries :)

How the Omnivore's 100 Works:
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.
4) Optional: Post a comment at Very Good Taste, linking to your results.

I'm really sorry, I hate comment moderation, but I've been getting annoying Japanese spam messages lately so...comment moderation has started.
