omnivore’s hundred, just for fun

27 August 08

a little exercise in meat eating, via very good taste.

i’ve highlighted in red those which i’ve tried, crossed off those i have no desire to, and put in bold those i’d like to.  umm…if nothing has been done to it i really don’t know what it is and don’t have the time really to look it all up right now.

but i thought it fitting as we just had good conversations about meat, and the decisions to eat it and if so how, with friends this weekend.  we’ve opted for the no-cafo rule and the local organic preference, ourselves.  because really, i cannot live without bacon.

pretty adventurous eater, i suppose.  there are other things i’d add to the list that everyone should try once, of course, and probably someday on a sick day i’ll get around to lying about thinking and making my own list….

um….the roadkill i can explain….though i don’t think the explanation would help you feel any better about it….
