Are you gonna eat that?

I’ve gotten involved in a project around the house (again) so I haven’t had time to take the blog fodder I do have and turn it into coherent posts. (Since when are your posts coherent, Mel?) But I saw this today on Magpie Musing and I thought I’d give it a whirl. It’s like the Purity Test, but for food. 🙂

So, for those who are counting…that’s 83.5 for me. I think this makes me a raccoon. 🙂 I’ve eaten so many of these things because in high school I hung out with a lot of Indian and Asian kids and I would eat anything they had at their houses. A lot of this stuff sounded familiar, but I didn’t know the “real” name of it. So I had to look them up to refresh my memory. There were only a few I had no clue what they were, and one of those, salted lassi, I had recently at a friend’s house as it turns out. I’ll eat just about anything once. Except the fugu. I like me some sushi, but without the threat of death, ya know?
