Steve, have you ever had meringue, the little cookies? do you like fresh fruit and whipped cream. Those are basically the elements of Pavlov. One of the most heavenly desserts ever.

55 for me. Quite a few I didn't have the foggiest what they were.

I counted the things I have tried, not just ones I like. I never tried a Root Beer Float or a Moonpie because they never looked good enough to me to try them. Why have a Root Beer Float when I could have a milkshake?

I have had raw oysters, but by mistake. It was disgusting, but I counted it because I actually tried it, gagging all the way!

I have had rabbit, fried, but not rabbit stew so I didn't count the rabbit stew. Like PF, I have had chicken and I have had waffles, but not together, so they didn't get counted. I have had a lot of things that weren't on the list.

If I knew what a lot of the things were and someone would prepare them for me, I would be more than willing to try them.

I managed a mere 41. I feel ashamed.

I thought I'd do better than I did too, especially with all the Mexican foods, but as PF said, I've had chicken and I've had waffles, but not together, so I didn't count it. And kangaroo and snake meat are pretty scarce around these parts.

Glad I'm not the only one who thought "chicken and waffles" was a bit weird! In that case I am up to 43! (Still pretty poor though).

What? No! It's chicken and waffles! Not chicken. And waffles. They have to be in the same dish.

No, I don't know where the list came from, or who came up with chicken and waffles in the first place. I'd lived here in the South for quite a few years before I ever heard of it, so I don't think it was invented here in SE VA, but it is an accepted dish. <Please read this all tongue in cheek. Please also let me know if that needs translating. lol>

Speaking if tongues, I noticed Cod Tongues with Scrunchions was missing from the list. That would have put me up to 56.

I've heard of chicken and waffles but never ate it. I thought it was like creamed chicken over a waffle, but I googled it and it's just fried chicken with a waffle. But they were on the same plate...I've never had them on the same plate.

Here's a recipe.
