Most of the meat ones I crossed out are just things I didn't get around to trying before I became a veg. Personally, I think it is all equally disgusting - if you're going to eat cow, I do not see the difference in eating horse. I'm just sayin'.

1. Venison (Growing up, Dad was quite a hunter)
3. Huevos rancheros (but with the eggs scrambled. Poached eggs, as we have discussed before, are a tool of the devil).
7. Cheese fondue
10. Baba ghanoush Have some in the fridge right now
12. Pho God's own food
13. PB&J sandwich. At our house, a specialty was peanut butter, bacon and sweet pickle sandwiches. Mom invented them, and I loved them. Honest.
14. Aloo gobi I make it ALL THE TIME
16. Epoisses I changed my mind on this one. I was thinking of crottin de Chavignol, not epoisses. Though I'd be willing to give it a try.
17. Black truffle This year we had black truffle pasta FEAST. So good.
18. Fruit wine made from something other than grapes
20. Pistachio ice cream Pistachio-saffron-rosewater is my favorite flavor
21. Heirloom tomatoes Green Zebras are growing right in my yard.

26. Raw Scotch Bonnet pepper Only in salsa. Only in miniscule quantities.
27. Dulce de leche
28. Oysters Smoked, not raw

31. Wasabi peas
33. Salted lassi
34. Sauerkraut We used to get this in school lunches. Do they still even try that with kids?
35. Root beer float

39. Gumbo Me oh my oh, catfish pie-o
40. Oxtail Only in french onion soup. Not the whole freaking tail

44. Goat’s milk
45. Malt whisky from a bottle worth £60/$120 or more
49. Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnut Only one, flown in on a FedEx plane, delivered by the pilot. That was cool.
51. Prickly pear I love prickly pear aguas frescas - I have a recipe on Snackish, my food blog
53. Abalone All the time as a kid. Mom had thing big wooden mallet she would pound them with.
54. Paneer (I have also MADE paneer. Be impressed).
55. McDonald’s Big Mac Meal The last time was over 20 years ago. I don't imagine much has changed.
57. Dirty gin martini MUCH prefer a tanqueray and tonic
58. Beer above 8% ABV

61. S’mores Nope never tried one. Really.
62. Sweetbreads If I was going to eat meat, I would definitely eat these
65. Durian (The stinkiest fruit on earth. Quite honestly. Like a mixture of diaper explosion and natural gas. I am not exaggerating. Tastes ok, but I'd rather eat a cherimoya or sapote, both of which are quite similar, without the stench.)
67. Beignets, churros, elephant ears or funnel cake
72. Caviar and blini
73. Louche absinthe
74. Gjetost, or brunost. Not a fan.

77. Hostess Fruit Pie
78. Snail (I am counting abalone here. It IS TOO)
79. Lapsang souchong
81. Tom yum
