Recently I took a Facebook quiz: 100 foods to try before you die. It inspired me to compile a proper list of worldwide dishes, not a deranged semi-worldwide/semi-totally-American list of foods.
The idea is quite beautiful. There is a great deal I could say about foods from a religious point of view that would help shape a really great list, but my personal list will include only foods that I think are universally delicious and interesting.
Granted I have my American favorites. While I pull chicken and waffles from the list I also don't add a McDonald's hamburger. Maybe I'll give America a few slots for cheeseburger, BBQ, and green bean casserole. We'll see. I doubt it.
This is going to take a little while.
I also have some interesting pictures from my recent vacation. Please excuse my lapses in blogging. I have been incredibly preoccupied. I'll get back into the routine now.
