My blog is based on this blog and what I saw on facebook too -- Credit where credit is due:
The Daily Dish: 100 Foods To Eat Before You Die: Happy New Year! For the first post of 2012 I thought I would share this food list challenge (I found via facebook) of the 100 foods to eat ...
My thoughts --
This was very fun to see and take my own personal challenge. I believe I'm at 70 items on the list and not in old age yet. More time. But a couple of the items I probably will never try. Durian I think is that fruit that smells like something rotting - probably I'm not going to feel compelled to try.
Often I'm the taster and my husband is the eat the full plate of something exotic, so that has given me more tastes than maybe I would have had.
I find that I am sorely lacking in the exotic Asian food department and I do like Indian and Asian foods, so I'm not sure how that happened.
Honestly, I'm not sure how some of these things made it on the list. Some I've had and I still don't know why they're on the list. (Frito pie?) I've crossed off everything I've eaten. But a fun diversion when I should be going to bed!
