100 Foods

Morning! Well almost afternoon! How did that happen? I am still so sleepy! This morning I woke up feeling like I didn’t sleep at all. Does that ever happen to you? It’s like some kind of sick joke. I was talking to a friend of mine at work about this once, and I was like “Sometimes I am so tired I think I am going to throw up.” And she looked at me like I was nuts. OK maybe I am, but now I am curious, does anyone else ever get so tired that they want to throw up? Is that even a thing?

Also my hip is MAD at me today. I have had issues with bursitis in the past, and I am really REALLY hoping that this isn’t that again, but it’s usually one of my first signs I am pushing it too much. SO, we will see. Maybe I just need a good foam rolling session.

So have you seen this 100 foods list floating around? I am not sure where it originated, so I don’t know who to source, but a bunch of my friends have been posting in on Facebook. I thought it would make a fun post!

  1. Abalone: Nope, I’ve seen the shells though
  2. Absinthe: No again, but I think I’d give it a go. Just so that I can float like Robin and Lilly on HIMYM.
  3. Alligator: No and no intention to.
  4. Baba Ghanoush: Yes! There was a place in Long Beach that had this on an appetizer platter that I loved J
  5. Bagel and Lox: This was one of my favorite breakfast treats until once I got some stuck in my throat and threw up, then not so much.
  6. Baklava: Yep yep!
  7. Barbecue Ribs: Um seriously? Of course! I am pretty sure my dad would BBQ every day if he could. He makes some with this blackberry sauce, AMAZING.
  8. Bellini: I am just going to throw it out there, if it involves sparkling wine, I’ve most likely tried it. So that’s a yes.
  9. Bird’s Nest Soup: No. And no plans to.
  10. Biscuits and Gravy: Yep, not in years though. They have it at the cafeteria at work, but it holds no appeal now.
  11. Black Pudding: No.
  12. Black Truffle: I’ve had a dish with black truffle oil, does that count?
  13. Borscht: Nope.
  14. Calamari: YEP! Funny story, we stayed in a fancy hotel on our wedding night and we were SO HUNGRY and we ordered calamari from the Greek-style restaurant in the hotel as room service. Totally random but totally delish.
  15. Carp: I don’t think so…
  16. Caviar: See above.
  17. Cheese Fondue: YES. I could eat it every day if I could!
  18. Chicken and Waffles: Yep! Again, a place in Long Beach (did I mention that I went to college there?) was really well known for them.
  19. Chicken Tikka Masala: Never from a restaurant but I’ve had the Trader Joes frozen kind.
  20. Chile Relleno: Si!
  21. Chitlins: No, and NO plans to.
  22. Churros: So good.
  23. Clam Chowder: When we went to New England for the first time I made it my personal mission to try clam chowder at every restaurant we went to. So healthy of me.
  24. Cognac: I’ve tried it, not a fan.
  25. Crab Cakes: One of my favorite meals!
  26. Crickets: Ew, no. I am not adventurous when it comes to this kind of stuff. Not going to happen.

  39. Frito Pie: I had NO idea what this was until a few weeks ago when I was at a business communications work luncheon and didn’t want the Fritos with my lunch (hate them) and someone started talking to me about it. No intention of every trying it either. For those of you who don’t know, it’s when you take a bag of fritos, cut it open along the side, add chili and top with nacho cheese. I am pretty sure this represents everything wrong with America.
  40. Frogs’ Legs: No, and this is one dish I seriously don’t understand.
  41. Fugu: Nope! I try to avoid foods that could kill me (see #39 haha)
  42. Funnel Cake: Is it possible to go to Magic Mountain and NOT get one?

  55. Kangaroo: no.

  1. Neat, that is a pretty cool list. I am surprised at how much is on that list that I have no clue what it is! I must save this list and check into some of the things on here. Of course some of the items that most people would probably say never ever (i.e. alligator, frog legs, po boy, etc) I have eaten before in my life…..I am from Louisiana, close to New Orleans after all…..lol!!

    • That’s so funny!! I seriously had never heard of it until like a week ago! It’s big in Utah too, my friend was telling me about going to football games and getting them. Then again you can put snickers with apples and whip cream and still call it a salad here… So I am not surprised 😉
