The Christmas Fifty

Merry Christmas, everyone! Here is a fun, funky list done in the style of the Omnivore's 100 (and assorted variations) to entertain you while you wait for your turkeys to roast!
  1. Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
  2. Bold all the items you’ve tasted. (In this case, I'm colouring mine).
  3. Place an asterisk after all the items you’ve cooked/prepared.
  4. Cross out anything you never want to try
  5. Add an exclamation mark after anything your really want to try.
