If you were stranded...

I don't care about the three books you couldn't live without if you were stranded on a deserted island. What about this:

If you were stranded on a deserted island (not desserted, although that would be awesome haha!) and could somehow miraculously have any 10 foods you desire for the rest of your life, what would those foods be? Processed or prepared are fine to list!

Send everyone you know on over to answer this; I'd love to see as many top tens as possible!

Here are my own top ten foods that I could not live without:

1) tomatoes
2) tapenade
3) goat cheese
4) olive oil
5) whole wheat bread
6) spinach
7) dark chocolate
8) chicken
9) new potatoes
10) olives

Garlic, French Roast coffee, hummus and linguine run a hugely close second!

Jackie-litchis are so uncommon! (here at least) I debated about lentils too.

Novaks-heehee...can you see a little McD's kiosk only serving fries on your island?

What a great question.

I'll try, but the list might be different by tomorrow -
whole grain bread
ice cream
peanut butter
and do drinks count? Coffee and Red Wine.
And not necessarily in that order

Peameal bacon is a Canadian thing I guess. It's back bacon rolled in cornmeal. Here's a website to check out.

Cheers! :-{>

Anne Coleman said...

Mama...our lists are too similar! Weird! :O)

K-that's so funny! Yeah, come to think of it, where's the veggies?? Beer counts, sure!
