feed me, seymour

i’m woefully overdue for responding to this meme that my pal nylonthread assigned. you’ll find that i am not exactly a major carnivore. i don’t eat a ton of meat or fish; i don’t eat pork at all; and i don’t really have any interest whatsoever in eating most animals, exotic or not. i don’t like the taste, and i don’t see the point. but that’s just me: a girl who, as a child, would take a peanut butter and jelly sammich over a steak. i’ve never, ever been able to get excited about a steakhouse or a great seafood restaurant.

now a vegetarian restaurant? THAT i get excited about. i don’t mind chicken, though it’s not like i search it out most of the time. me, i like beans, cheese, nuts and nut butters, and veggies.

and chocolate, of course.

but to each his own.

the rules:

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 http://www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.
