Omnivore’s Hundred

Saw this on Hil‘s blog and decided I would play along just for fun as well. It originally comes from here.

I glanced over the list quickly, and it sure looks like there are many things on here I have never tried. I guess I’ll find out just how many while I go through it right about now.

The rules are:
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.

1. Venison
2. Nettle tea
3. Huevos rancheros
4. Steak tartare – I don’t like steak in general, so raw? Probably not.
5. Crocodile – I’m just not a huge meat fan in general, so anything especially out of the ordinary freaks me out a little.
6. Black pudding
7. Cheese fondue
8. Carp
9. Borscht
10. Baba ghanoush
11. Calamari
12. Pho
13. PB&J sandwich
14. Aloo gobi

16. Epoisses
17. Black truffle
18. Fruit wine made from something other than grapes
19. Steamed pork buns
20. Pistachio ice cream
21. Heirloom tomatoes

31. Wasabi peas
32. Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl
33. Salted lassi
34. Sauerkraut
35. Root beer float
36. Cognac with a fat cigar – haha. Not quite my cup of tea…

94. Catfish
95. Mole poblano
96. Bagel and lox
97. Lobster Thermidor
98. Polenta

So clearly I’ve hardly tried anything on this list. I also had to look up the majority of the foods. And I have to admit, many of them – especially the animal-based ones… – freaked me out just a bit. So I guess I won’t be on the look out for many of these foods any time soon. It’s quite the interesting list though!

I’ll be back later for the day’s update.

  1. What?! You’ve never tried crocodile?! What’s wrong with you???

    Ok, obviously I’m just kidding ;o).

    Ooh, but you should try polenta. It’s so creamy and delicious… in fact, I need to make some again too, as I haven’t had it in too long!

  2. Caitlin – Is it ever! There are so many things out there that I would love to try someday. Just maybe not a lot of the things on this particular list… haha

    ChocolateCoveredVegan – I know, I seriously need to try crocodile! Maybe tomorrow I’ll go out and buy some. Or better yet, go out and catch my own!

    I really DO want to try polenta. It looks deelish. Writing myself a reminder right now!
