For the first time this year, i’m calling in sick. while i let the medication settle, I was reading my rss reads and came across this. thought it was quite interesting so i gave it a go. 🙂 

Here’s what it’s all about. Andrew from Very Good Taste posts: 

Here’s a chance for a little interactivity for all the bloggers out there. Below is a list of 100 things that I think every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life. The list includes fine food, strange food, everyday food and even some pretty bad food – but a good omnivore should really try it all. Don’t worry if you haven’t, mind you; neither have I, though I’ll be sure to work on it. Don’t worry if you don’t recognise everything in the hundred, either; Wikipedia has the answers.

Here’s what I want you 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.

carrot cake

yummy yum yum yum! i managed to take a quick shot of the completed cake before i packed it to MS’s place for the baby shower. and boy did we have fun there. 🙂 MS was a great host, she catered food, prepared games AND prizes (which i was lucky enough to get 3 of them 🙂 ). i had a great very first baby shower!! 🙂 heee and they managed to finish a good 2/3rds of the cake which was quite impressive as everyone had so much food and some of them even left. 

i brought the cake to dinner and M’s friends kindly finished it off for me. 🙂 happy me is. 🙂 great reviews for the cake and i’m pretty pleased with the results. 🙂 it’s a recipe to keep… if i can remember what i did this morning (it was really going by how it looked etc.) but i’ll put the recipe up  soon. 🙂
