portland vegan 100

26 Oct

I got this fun list from Jess’ blog and couldn’t resist. If you’ve never been to Portland, you could rename this “100 Reasons to Jump on a Train, Plane or Automobile and Get My Butt to Portland!”

Here’s how it works:

1) Copy this list into your own blog, facebook or website, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Post a comment here once you’ve finished and link your post back to this one.
5) Pass it on!
