Whatcha eatin'?

Found at Cathy's Grace Notes:
This is fun, and everybody's doing it. This is the Omnivore's 100!! I believe that the list has been put together by a Brit, so may not contain some... North American must-haves!

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. (Note - I'm not sure if the URL for Very Good Taste... Cathy, could you post it in the comments?)
