I do have several posts I want to write but I don't have the energy, time or clarity. This is all I can muster up. I found this quiz over at I Like To Cook.

100 things that Very Good Taste thinks everyone should eat at least once in their life.

Here are the instructions. I don't know how to cross words out on blogger so I italicized what I would never eat

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 here at linking to your results.

I saw this somewhere else too ... looks like a fun meme, but I would have to spend way too much time looking some of these things up ... hehe. Most of the ones I've heard of I've eaten with an exception or two. What an interesting world of food we live in!! :)
