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).
