what i've eaten...

Here’s what I want you to do:

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating. (or in my case, put them in italics, since i don't know how to cross out)

1. Venison- jerky. yum
2. Nettle tea
