Judging by that list, I am an utter food wimp. Even in print, some of those things make me gag. You're so brave.

Donna said...

Mmmm. Currywurst and brotchen. Best part of going to the market on Saturdays. That and really cheap flowers.

Leah said...

Another food wimp here. I wouldn't even consider trying at least 50% of the items on that list. However, poutine is pretty freaking awesome. If you're ever in Qu├ębec, give an Ashton poutine a try.
