EDITED VERSION: of oxtail, snails, or insects

I received several personal emails pointing out I did not do the meme correctly. Apparently, when I am tired I skip steps. Like c. So now I have italicized and added d. (which is comments besides certain foods).
I visited my lovely friend FaroutMom to see what was up in her life and instead found out she'd eaten some Farout food in her life. Then I realized, so had I. Some of it YUM and some of it SICK! How about you? If you decide to post this little meme, please leave me a comment so I can read it too please. I'm very interested (nosy) like that.

a. Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
b. Bold all the items you’ve eaten. (I made them red so you could see them)
c. Cross out or italicize any items that you would never consider eating.

Yes I have eaten 92 items of the list...Humm...$120.00 Scotch know the answer to that one...could float a boat! And let me caution other s...Scotch Bonnet Peppers..if you want to try one...put your ITune ear buds in place have "Light Up My Life" playing and take a tiny, tiny nibble...yes will see Jesus! But returning last night we grabbed from the fridge what was on hand and experience a new adventure. There was ma-kins for salad and left over steak we regularly prepare for the our dog, Miss Montana, guest it...salad with dog food!

What's that Krispy Kreme donut doing in there? Now I'm going to have to go out and get one. Thanks. ;)

I think I'd rather just write a post on the weird things I've eaten in my Cajun life. In fact, the Hunny and I were talking about that just this week. How odd.

Pat said...

Wow, I'm impressed you tried so many different items. I have what you would call a bad gag reflux so to save embarrassment I just pass :)

Sara said...

What?? You have never had a Big Mac Meal?? And you didn't cross out whole insects?? Yeck!

Sheila said...

This post definitely got me thinking... I am NOT an adventurous eater (unless you count Mickey-Dees). I did post this meme on my blog... so you can see how safe I live.

Not sure what this says about me that about the only ones I can say I have had is pb&g and hostess fruit pie. That was my lunch all my school days!

S. A. Merritt said...

Thanks for the free bakery advertising :) I've already lost one customer because of my political rantings, but since we NEED the Shooter family business, I'll try to keep my mouth shut!

faroutmom said...

Sorry, S.A. but no amount of political ranting can keep us from your bakery when we are in town. Whoever did that is just torturing themselves.

I love lists and I know my readers (friends since "my readers" are all my friends and relatives) :) will love it too. So, I'm definitely going to put it my next blog. Thanks! I've never seen this one before and your answers made me laugh. We love your site, thank you! Oh, by the way, I've eaten most of the selections, excluding many of the ones that I simply couldn't use "hooked on phonics" to decipher. haha
