|The color won me over|
|The dish is mine the glass is Robs|
Through the last few years I have made it my goal to go through every food that I thought I did not like, and make sure that I still did not like it. For the most part this project has been successful, I now have no problem eating fish, and have discovered that I like Pacific Salmon much better than
Atlantic. I love cilantro, and my dislike of Hollandaise Sauce was the fault of a bad cook not a bad recipe. I am still not a fan of red peppers, I feel they take over the dish, but now I don't avoid eating them as I once did.
|Proof for my parents, I do |
actually enjoy Salmon
So there you have it, I have admitted my dislikes, and I still have the nerve to consider myself a food person. You will have to forgive me if you never see a recipe or reference to glasses of milk and spicy foods on this blog, but you can trust me to always go into eating with an open mind, and to try everything I don’t like more than once.
Will any of you admit to your food dislikes? Are there foods that you thought you hated that you ended up loving?
