A Meme

(I totally stole this from Bringing Home Be.)

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten (and I have also made them green).
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating. (Since blogger doesn't give me the option to cross out, I have marked my nevers with red.)
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at http://www.verygoodtaste.co.uk/ linking to your results.

Mmmmm.... cheese fondue.

Based on this list I think it clear that we could be real life friends, or at least have no problem agreeing on a good restaurant.

Also... HORSE? I guess France is a valid excuse. Now, get thee to a reputable Mexican restaurant for some Mole Poblano. Go. Go now.

Haggis looks like..eeerr..but it's really good. Harissa is a sort of spreadable thing, very very hot, made out of, just let me check, red hot pimentoes, garlic and salt and other spices. Snails are really good french style, with butter, garlic and parsley.
I love fondue savoyarde, loveit, love it!
