The Omnivore's One Hundred

Here’s an interesting little list I found at How to Eat a Cupcake. It originated at Very Good Taste, who gives the following instructions:

Below is a list of 100 things that I think every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life. The list includes fine food, strange food, everyday food and even some pretty bad food – but a good omnivore should really try it all. Don’t worry if you haven’t, mind you; neither have I, though I’ll be sure to work on it. Don’t worry if you don’t recognise everything in the hundred, either; Wikipedia has the answers.

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 extra: Post a comment at linking to your results.

Friday links! Geese, pies, patterns and cries

For a few months now, I’ve been putting links in the sidebar to things that strike my fancy. Starting this week, though, I’m trying something new. I’ve removed the sidebar links, and I’m going to hoard them all until Fridays. When I’ll put them right here as a post.

Like this:

  • Chris at A Free Man is experiencing Terror in Happy Valley as he’s harassed by a gang of blood-thirsty fowl. I’m not a fan of birds. This story made me shudder.
  • Deb at Smitten Kitchen made some Bourbon Peach Hand Pies, and they look delicious. I think I’ve only made my own pie crust once, though. I’m not going to be trying this any time soon.
  • There’s a really cute pattern for a dishtowel apron at Made by Petchy. It looks pretty simple, too.
  • One the not-so-simple front, UK Lass in the US made a fabric dollhouse! And she’s sharing how she did it.
  • The writing at Sweet Juniper makes me teary-eyed on a regular basis. But when I read this post on Poppy’s birthday, it was a full-on weep fest.
