Take the Food Challenge!

Here is a fun thing from Delicioso Mama I subtracted a few and added a few of my own (I also included notes).
Here's the legend:
Bold print=I've eaten it
Red Print= I'd like to live on it, damn the calories or lack of nutritional propriety
Light Print=never had it
Blue Print = Would like to

Hoppin' John is black-eyed peas and rice! Yuck on oyster dressing for me, too. Seriously, can you have sweet potato casserole without marshmallows? So, how was the caterpillar?
