Food Obsessed Pig Post

by Cajun Kate

So it is a well-established fact that I am a food obsessed pig, thus when I saw this meme on the internet, I knew I had to take part in it. I read some criticism of it on Nick Douglas' tumblr, but he can kiss my a**. I think this is fun. Because I am a food obsessed pig. Here we go.

Andrew Wheeler created a list called the Omnivore’s Hundred, a list of 100 things that he thinks every good omnivore should try at least once in their life. I got this via the Did You Ever Notice tumblr then plugged in my own info. Join in!
1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold any items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Italicize any item you’ll never eat again.
5) Asterisk any items you’d be interested in trying but have not yet.
6) Underline an item if you don’t know what it is.(I left this out. There were lots of unknowns for me, but I just Googled them.)
