100 American must haves

My friend Ann posted this today. I thought as a well traveled girl (within my own country) that I would be able to say I had enjoyed most things on the following list. I, However, have only had 66 of the 100 things on the list. Sad day! Time to set a new goal.

I wish more of my food goals were about eating less food. Ha! whatever! I like food and that is okay. So let's add this to Wade and I's goal to eat at 50 of the top 100 SLC restaurants (which isn't going as well as hoped because we have found favorites we like to keep going to.

I have had a fish taco but not in San Diego, and I have had good BBQ ribs but not in Kansas City. I was tempted to count such things anyway until I realized I would be appalled if someone had ordered a cheesesteak here in SLC and counted that as having tried a real cheesesteak, because they aren't even close.  if you have time to go through the list. leave me a comment on how many you have tried. This list makes me want to go on a road trip real bad!
