Agreed, but are there really that many things that get commonly prepared in a less than fantastic way.I can understand if the typical method of preparation makes a horrible dish and it is that dish's flavor or texture they dont like. However in that case I would expect the person asking to ask "why dont you like it?" as opposed to "have you ever tried it?"
For example, okra typically gets prepared by making it slimy, where fried or grilled okra is a different taste and texture.
I retried bananas like 15 years ago. Still didn't like them. Considering I don't even like the smell I don't think I will ever retry them later on.
Bananas are hit or miss. I was disgusted by them as a teen but liked them as a kid as well as now as an adult. The texture is a huge part of it. I won't eat bananas once they've got more than about 25% coverage with the brown spots. I need them to be firm to be delicious. My kids love them when they're majority brown, I guess they like the overly sweet taste.I love bananas, but something about them cooked or over ripe - nasty. For me it's the smell and texture too. Strange that I like them when they are green or just turned yellow.
I've read this also, but I think attitudes and prep method count for a lot. Growing up we were always told that we'd like it if we tried it with an open mind. As an adult I'm always eager to try new foods. My wife was always told "that's for adults, you wouldn't like that" for new foods, as an adult she was a very picky eater until she decided to open up and start trying all these things. She's figuring her family told her she wouldn't like anything delicious so they could have more for themselves. I mean, who tells a kid they won't like potato pierogies? They're delicious.I read that kids taste buds actually make a lot of veggies taste bitter, but they change as they get older. I also didn't like onions and now love them, but I think for most things they've stuck. Especially the stuff I really don't like.
did I miss that you're 'with child'?I haven't eaten "breakfast" since Friday morning. I had toast yesterday only because Liam made it. Emmett wanted to make 2 eggs this morning, so I felt bad not eating that and toast. Meh.
Breakfast and everything sucks right now. Except for peppermint patties
