I reckon you could probably live several life-times and eat a different meal every day! I was young and foolish once, and hatched a plan to collect 'every recipe in the world'. Who was I trying to kid, huh? I have thousands upon thousands of recipes in my collection, and I don't think I've even scratched the surface.

For instance, I haven't collected recipes for guinea pig or dog or cockroaches or hogs heads; I haven't collected any Japanese recipes, and I don't usually collect recipes with names I can't pronounce - which means a lot of Russian and Eastern European and African and Middle Eastern recipes, just for starters.

I notice a lot of Jewish recipes, but I haven't collected many of these because they use things I've never heard of, like matzo.

I also haven't collected a lot of Mexican or Tex-Mex recipes, because HOT isn't to my taste.

I didn't collect the Garlic Ice Cream recipe I once spotted because it sounded just too gross. Plenty of recipes come into the 'gross' category!

Obviously, I've had my work cut out collecting everything in between!! Especially when there are millions of new recipes being invented every day.

It is said you can eat at a different restaurant three times a day for 5 years and never repeat. I imagine that you could eat a different meal three times a day for life and never repeat. I know I would like to try!

I would not be surprised if you could eat a different type of cuisine for each meal for a lifetime, not just a different dish.

Humm ... if you lived another 50 years, and ate 3 meals a day, that would be (50 x 365.25 x 3) ... 54,787 meals!

That would be a lot of fun. Maybe I can set up a blog or something to chronicle it.

They probabily made that many different meals so far on the Food TV network alone.

I absolutely believe you could go a lifetime w/o repeating. A few years ago a woman decided to go through the original Julia Child cookbook, one recipe per day (Meal? Don't remember). Anyone remember that experiment? I don't remember how long it took her to go through the book, but it was interesting.
