When I was a little girl (was I?) I used to hate onions! I would sit for hours at my miserable bowl of soup, trying to take out every single piece of it! I could not stand it. And I could not leave the table before I finish my soup. Well, as soon as my mom was not looking, my soup would got out of the window, right on my mom's roses, they just loved rich nutrition!
It always seemed funny to me that I would hate it so much. I grew up with oatmeal (chewy, not gooey) and grits (YUM) - I'm a Southern girl, after all. And I thought it would be very enlightened of me to try to like a "yankee" dish like Cream of Wheat. But even though I've tried several times, I just haven't been able to stomach it. Sorry. Maybe the jam and butter would help, but at my age I'm thinking it's okay to recognize and acknowledge my likes and dislikes, no?
Ohhhh nooooo. We agree on the first - but liver? I used to like it a lot. It's been ages since I've had any. I also love odd vegetables: broccoli, sweetpotatoes, squash, brussels sprouts, and more. I'm not sure I've ever met a vegetable that I didn't like.
I also really dislike the taste of buttermilk. It's great for cooking, but I have tried to like drinking it, and I always fail.
The only thing I have discovered so far that I cannot stand to eat is soggy bread. I can't stand souffles that are not well cooked (especially those made with day-old bread slices), and seeing people soak their dry toast in milk is enough to make me gag.
I like pretty much everything that has been mentioned. I do like seafood of all kinds,sushi, sashimi, even squid . I think the only thing I've tried to eat and could not swallow (even with a big drink of orange juice) was a raw oyster.
That's the worst tasting cheese I know, and they eat it a lot here in Germany. Another thing they eat here that is totally disgusting is 'Eisbein' - the boiled lower part of a pig's leg, which is covered in thick, white fat. I've only tried it once, and almost threw up on the second mouthful.
Cucumbers - I hate cucumbers! I don't like the taste or the smell, and they give me terrible indigestion. Great to get that off my chest, having had great fun arguing in their favour on another Forum thread, and having written a Hub that has a lot to do with cucumbers :-)
That Zimmerman feller disgusts me with the things he eats. the chef on TV that travels all over the world eating gross foods, like that one Italian cheese that is full of maggots. he loved it. And it is illegal to boot. haha
I cannot stand eating missionaries, they are invariably fatty or dried up sticks, the layers of condescension and self-righteousness seem to have replaced any reasonable meat - and they whinge continually while being boiled ! And the brain! ech! when opened the head is full of slimy piss and poison and should be discarded into the latrine, the eyes are not so bad as they have never really been used
I cannot stand Ham, it tastes nasty and I hate the texture too. Always have and always will. It acutally turns my stomach to even think about it. I find it very hard to write this because it makes me think about it. YUCK!
I've noticed, as I was browsing over a lot of the newest "Hubbers" that most of them started off strong, with this idealistic vision of how, what, when they were going to write, and it was going to be Amazing;...
I have a fear of heights. Which has, for reasons known only to itself, extended to flying. This last year, I've been on seven flights. So obviously I'm almost down to my last nerve ending.I'm not too bad with the flying...
Just curious if any fellow hubbers have dealt with or know of anyone who's had a sudden loss of memory specifically to typing. My Mom, (who's been typing 8hrs. a day for the past 20yrs.) had gone on vacation and...
There have been a few threads going on that are harping on the personal family issues of some politicians, namely Sarah Palin.Yes, these individuals are heavily exposed because they chose to run for office, but why the...
