I wanted to get all of the foods in this post recorded before new year’s day, but holiday insanity being what it is, that didn’t happen.

There’s not much that says “NYC street food” like a big soft pretzel (seen here: me having a “working lunch” as I race through Times Square).

WOOHOO! BREAKING 100! I’m now 1/10 of the way done with 1000 Foods to Eat Before You Die, after starting this project a year and a half ago. I made a push to break 100 by concentrating on the American and Canadian section of the book — all of these foods are from that chapter.

Only a little traveling this week, but you can eat the world in NYC, so it’s not like that slows a body down. I bounced all over the book, but made most of my progress in the Mexican chapter.

Aug 3, 2016 by

What I know of him is this: he very often said wise things, and I had the great good fortune to be in the room sometimes when he said them, and the lucky foresight to write them down. I present to you now the Jim Houghton quotes I have written down, that I have often referred to and will continue to refer to in times of uncertainty.

it’s been a year since last I updated my 1000 Foods To Eat Before You Die journey. I’m still eating foods, I just haven’t been very good about keeping track of when I’m checking them off, and I’ve been downright negligent about blogging them. Let’s look at the things I have eaten in the last year that I have managed to take photos of.
