In a normal setting, I am not too picky
I would probably come up w/ a much longer list since I am kind of picky.
Fried eggs. And those animal feet in a jar look pretty gross so I don't think I'll ever try those.
Just to clarify, I have had fried eggs in the past--way too many times. When I was growing up, my dad like bacon and fried eggs for breakfast everyday so that is what my mom prepared for all of us every Monday thru Friday during the school year (hold the bacon on Fridays). I was never fond of the runny yolks of fried eggs and it eventually turned to revulsion. When I finished 8th grade I declared that I would never eat another fried egg and I have kept my word. I like eggs as long as the yolk is firm, my poached eggs resemble hard boiled eggs in a different shape!
Meat (and yes, that includes chicken or fish) is pretty much it. I like all varieties of food, as far as Mexican, or Thai, or Middle Eastern or whatever, but no meat. I pretty much like all fruits and veggies, and grains, beans, legumes, etc...
I'm with you on the beets. Not sure I've ever actually had one but I have no desire to try them. And the lima beans. They were the only veggie my older sister would eat so I had them a lot when I was a kid - as a result I probably haven't had one in 40 years! I don't like fresh tomatoes. I'll eat the canned diced tomatoes in stuff but not big hunks of tomato. I don't like squash or saurkraut.
Went out to dinner long ago and one of the choices of soup was Borscht... never having heard of it ...I gave it a go!
ooooo cold beet soup was put in front of me ....learned maybe I should ask what something is first :smileytongue:
Growing up we called fried eggs "Mommy eggs" and scrambled "Daddy eggs", because my mother always had fried and my father chose scrambled. I always liked over easy because I like to dip my toast in the egg yolk.
I pickle mangos, cukes, and onions!
I like pickled herring and olives!
With how hard the winter hit Florida, we have had shortages and higher prices here in produce. Especially hard hit were the tomato and pepper growers. Restaurants have even put how they cut them on their menus.
The nutritionists gave me an article about how peas are high in arginine which shingle virus feeds on, so I have cut them from my garden too.
I don't eat any organ meats... tongue, tripe, kidneys...feet or knuckles have to be in there too
Anybody eat gizzards?
I have had liver, but smothered in so many onions who could taste the liver.
