Foods I Do Not Like..

A little getting to know me kind of post.

Mushrooms – I know they don’t have much/any flavor.  But I still don’t like them.  It’s a texture thing.  These are not the veggies I am looking for.

Tomatoes – I pretty much love everything made out of them, but cannot stand them as is, either raw or cooked.  Taste, texture, the itty little bits.  Yuck.  The only time I involuntarily had one and liked it was when it was still mostly green and they had washed out the seeds/mush.

Steak – ooo, how can a man not like steak I hear you thinking.   Sacrilege!  I just .. don’t.  In many ways, I’m a lazy eater and I’d take a hamburger over a steak.  It’s almost pre-chewed!  It probably also goes back to growing up.  My choices were like my mother liked it (still saying moo when you poked it with the fork) or like my dad liked it (charcoal).  While I tend to well-done, I just have very rarely had a piece of steak I really like (a friend made an amazing teriyaki one once) and I have never managed to cook one myself to my liking.

Coffee flavored products – I like my coffee in a cup, hot, preferably with a little french vanilla or hazelnut flavoring.  Thank you.  Iced, ice-creamed, caked, chocolated.  Please remove such offenses from my sight.

Cheesecake debased by fruit – I love cheesecake (it loves me too, since it tends to stick around).  But why must mankind take something so perfect and ruin it with fruit or fruit like products (or coffee).

  1. Mushrooms could definitely do better in the texture department.

  2. I would expand that to any dessert debased by fruit–and raspberries are the worst offenders. If I wanted fruit, I would have ordered fruit. I didn’t. I want to know who the raspberries hired as their lobbyist, because that guy is good, getting them in on all of the otherwise wonderful chocolate desserts . . . ahhhhhhh . . . chocolate desserts . . . perhaps this is part of my problem.

  3. Oh I hate tomatoes! I have been learning to love mushrooms. Their texture still creeps me out though.

  4. Hate mushrooms and will not eat them, do not like tomatoes or coffee ever,hate it. I dont mix healthy with junk,fruit doesnt belonv with junk. Also hate articbokes euuuu! And pretthmuchany cooked evetable. Thereinlies the problem! Greaat post.

    • ha, my mom hates all raw vegetables. The first time she has eaten a salad voluntarily is this summer when I learned how to make grilled Caesar Salad (that’s grilled salad, not grilled chicken caesar salad).

  5. J. you have a very curious sense of taste, but to each his own.


  6. Yeah, tomatoes – we seem to share a problem there. I can only eat the cocktail tomatoes and only in small amounts, like on a bread or so. But I discovered baby carrots and love them so far. Alos today I bought some sugar pods. I am not sure yet but tomorrow will show whether I like them. 😉
    Keep it up.

  7. Totally agree with Cheesecake, and Tomatoes! 🙂
