Stumbled upon this site of list challenges.
Apparently in this era of lists, making them isn't enough. You've got to be challenged.
I tried the "BBC 50 Foods to Eat Before You Die" which was based on a survey of the British TV station. I got 43 out of 50. I skipped the reindeer (Bambi!), guinea pig and Kangaroo.
From critters to condiments, the site has list challenges you can take on when its early in the morning and you want a break from all the work.
