Cheese fondue,PB and J, rice and beans, baklava, fresh wild berries, frog legs, root beer floats, Krispy Kreme Donuts, Big Macs, and S'mores all get a thumbs up from me. Some of the others I'd try, but most of them, NO THANKS! :D

Fun post, Tink!

Fun list to view, but seriously, that head cheese is FOUL to look at and it reminds me of The Texas Chainsaw Massacare (I mean the half of the movie that I watched before running home from the neighbors house when I was 12.)

I ate bear last week.

Yes. BEAR.

Tink said...

Bear. That frightens me. At least how it was caught. Ha! I wonder if it was any good? :-)

Daisy, you eat all the yummy foods on my list. I don't blame you one bit.

Heather, isn't it, though? :-) TCM... I still haven't seen the original. Very rarely does a horror movie scare me. I am usually too interested in the effects. For some reason, even when I was 12 - I laughed at how ridiculous they were. Maybe I watched the wrong movies?
