It’s no secret that I love food. I love to cook it… and I love to eat it.
I’m always watching food videos online. There’s one particular video that I’ve watched many times. It’s something I’ve never had before but have always wanted to try.
That video and the dish it shows being prepared got me thinking about some other foods I want to try. It lead to this list.
20 Foods I Want To Try
Crawfish Boil – This is the food that led to this list. I’ve never had crawfish before but I’m betting I’d like it. The idea of sitting around a table in front of a pile of food sounds fun. I bet I’d enjoy the experience of this meal with family and friends as much as the food.
Liver and Onions – This dish gets a bad rap… and I’d like to see if it deserves it. I like onions so I already know I’ll like part of it.
Sushi – I tried “sushi” once at a mega-buffet but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t good sushi. I’d like to go to a real sushi place with someone that knows what’s good and can show me what to order.
Pheasant – I think I might have had this once when I was a kid but don’t remember it.
Buffalo Burger – This is another one that I think I’ve eaten as a kid but don’t remember.
Spaghetti Squash – I’m not a fan or regular squash. It’s a little too sweet for me… but I’d be willing to give this a try sometime.
Anchovy Pizza – I love pizza… so why not try this once, right?
Caviar – I’ve heard this is slightly salty. I like salty foods so there’s a chance I’d like fish eggs.
Escargot – I know garlic is used to make this interesting dish of snails. I like garlic.
Pho – I’ve had friends share pictures recently of pho and it looked awesome. I think I need to hit up the restaurant they frequent to try this Vietnamese soup.
Lobster Roll – I’ve only had lobster a handful of times but loved it. I’m betting I’d enjoy this.
Tamales – I think it’s interesting how this dish is prepared in corn husks.
Portobello Mushroom Burger – My oldest daughter and I love mushrooms and have talked about grilling some of these the past few Summers. We need to quit talking about it and just do it.
Zucchini Noodles – We eat a lot of pasta in our house. I think it would be interesting to try some of our favorite sauces with spirally sliced zucchini noodles.
Poutine – There was a vendor selling this last year at the Iowa State Fair and I didn’t get any. I need to change that at the next fair. Fries, gravy, cheese curds… this sounds like my kind of dish.
Eggs Benedict – I’ve seen this on the menu at many places that serve breakfast but I’ve never ordered it.
Fried Green Tomatoes – There are some tomato dishes that I like more than others. I’m curious to see how this would rank with me.
Frog Legs – When I was a kid we took a family vacation to Branson with family friends. One of them ordered frog legs. That was my first exposure to frog legs. I’m curious what they taste like.
Bagel and Lox – I’m a big bagel fan… and I like salmon… so there’s a chance I’ll like this.
Oysters on the Half Shell – I’ve tried oyster stew before and didn’t really care for it. I’m interested to see if I would like this way of eating oysters better.
What are some foods you want to try?
How is it even possible that it’s time to write another one of these posts? It seems like just yesterday I was writing November’s.
Yet, here we are. Time for me to take stock of what I’m into and share it with you.
What I’m Into Right Now – December 2017
Bagels – My kids got me started on these recently. They each have their favorite flavor. One likes raisin topped with butter. The other likes apple cinnamon with plain cream cheese. My go-to choice is a toasted onion bagel with light cream cheese.
Hoodies – I love colder weather and hoodies. They’re warm and comfortable.
On The Rocks – This new album from country group Midland is awesome. I’ve had it on repeat for a while now and will probably write a full review soon.
Smart Home Products – Over Black Friday weekend I used the remainder of last year’s Christmas money I had been saving on a Google Home Mini, a few smart plugs, and smart light bulbs. It’s been fun seeing how they work together and what you can do with the technology. I’ll probably be doing a write up on all of that too.
Heated Mattress Pads – I really don’t like getting into a cold bed and as long as I remember to turn on our heated mattress pad I don’t have to. I prefer them to electric blankets.
