We are back from a wonderful trip to Costa Rica! Juan and I had a really great time.  The next couple weeks, I’ll show you some photos of the beautiful countryside, the wildlife and the food!   Getting back has been hectic as our bags went MIA in Miami, which was kind of ironic since the airport is called “MIA,” and I started class yesterday.  So, I missed my Sandwich Sunday post but it will be back next weekend.

Last year, I posted the Omnivore’s Hundred and over the course of the year, as I’ve traveled and tried new things, I have looked back on it.  Here is my updated list.  I went from 49 to 57, if you count trying Juan’s food sometimes.

Here’s what to do:

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.

    Welcome back!! Sounds like a great trip :-)

    Of course your personal pharmacist can help with #63-Kaolin. It is aluminum silicate and is a natural clay used for pottery and other products. It has adsorbent properties and is used in Kaopectate to treat diarrhea. So unless you get food poisoning or dysentery you probably won’t try it.
