Vegetarian Hundred

i-f875c0b07d9b3cb6229668554781b35a-alice.jpgI saw this meme over at at Jane’s, who saw it at Janet’s: The Vegetarian’s Hundred, a veggie response to the Omnivore’s Hundred meme. Here are Jane/Janet’s rules:

If you want to play along, here’s how you do it: copy the list, including my instructions, and bold any items you have eaten and strike out any you would never eat, and then post it to your blog.
I’m going to add the following rule: italicize items you have made (or grown) yourself. (Presumably, you’ve eaten those as well.

Fun! And I’m in avoidance about work too. Best think about food!

    Wow, I’ve done 93. The only things I haven’t eaten: Kedgeree, Ma Po Tofu (but not for lack of trying), Paw Paw, Mango lassi, fried apples, homemade yogurt, and Pressed spiced Chinese tofu

    I tried paw paw just last week. It’s native to the mid-Atlantic and some people where I work swear by them. But I spat it out right away (weird texture) and I had to force myself to swallow. It’s not an easy fruit to like!

    I stopped counting after a bit, but there are more than eight items on there that I have never heard of! Of course, my idea of cooking is frying up some eggs….
