Thank you Laura!

I was tagged by
Laura to "create a list of food bloggers' top picks for things you've eaten and think that everyone should eat at least once before they die." I'd have to say I'm pretty predictable. These are my favorite foods and therefore, everyone should try and LOVE them! ;)

1) Mango and sticky rice- Mango is one of the worlds most popular fruits, that alone makes it worth the shot. Add thai sticky rice to it and you've got yourself a dessert that's not
overwhelmingly sweet but very satisfying.

2) Dark Chocolate from Europe- Something I'm addicted to and much better than regular milk chocolate from the states.

3) Thai curry- I don't care which kind. It's entirely differently flavor from Indian curry. It hits your tongue in a different manner, wonderful. I actually need to eat this at least once a month or I go into withdrawals.

4) Home grown tomatoes- Much sweeter than store bought and well worth the work of growing them.

5) Vegetarian Burritos- I'm from southern CA and because of this, I eat these weekly. I've found the perfect ingredients are- Beans (veggie of course!), gauc, lettuce, tomatoes, pico de gallo, and HOT SAUCE. (tapatio please).

That was a thinker.

Who to tag next:

Kaivegan! (b/c I miss her posts!)

Chris from
Eat Air (thanks for the violet updates)

Mixed Salad Annie (a new buddy)

Vegan*core Just and awesome cook with great pictures

Jess of Get Sconed! One of the most talented tofu cookers ;)

Good luck guys! Have a great 3 day weekend

Crud! I can only post anonymously also. I got an error message saying that Beta Bloggers can't post on non-Beta blogs anymore. What???

My friend who just got back from Thailand raved and raved about mangoes and sticky rice. I seriously need to find the type of rice used to make sticky rice. I wish I would have had it last week because I ate 3 mangoes all by myself. Yum!

I LOVE Thai curry. It almost made my list as well! Just can't get enough of those flavors, they way they mix and become greater than they are individually.

Great list! Veggie burritos, when made just right, are soooooooo good. Your variation sounds awesome!

Your choices are right up my alley! I love the pictures you included. Dark chocolate... burritos... garden tomatoes... These are a few things that can't be beat!

Oh wow! I totally agree with all of those, except I've never had mango and sticky rice. I'm going to run out and try some this week, tho. Thanks for the list!
