The Vegetarian's 100


Maggie of Dog Hill Kitchen and Maybelle's Mom of Feeding Maybelle have thought about and created their Vegetarian take on the Omnivore's 100 list! Check out their sites to see their lists and leave a comment there. General rules:

bold = have eaten
unhighlighted = haven't eaten
crossed out = won't ever eat (I'd try everything on this list!)

If you do do this, please post a comment here at http:feedingmaybelle.blogspot.com, linking to Maybelle's Mom. Click on the (?) if you are curious what the heck the item is... Maybelle's Mom did a lot of work getting all of those links!
