QOTD 25/01 - Food

Postby Funky Fairy » Jan 25th, '13, 1:55 am

Is there 1 food item that you really can't stand?
Something that just makes you feel yuk!


I'm pretty good with food and there's not much that I don't really like or can't tolerate.
I really can't stand Mushy Peas.
It's an English thing I think and traditional they are eaten with Fish and Chips.

My Nan used to make her own. I remember the big marrowfat peas saoking over night on a Sunday ready for the Roast Dinner on a Sunday.
Yuk!!

They are slimey but yet with a slight dry consistencey.
Yuk Yuk Yuk!!!

My husband's family wrinkly olives. They are the large pitted olives that are soaked in lye and rinsed. You can buy them at an Italian store. Then they put a series of nasty spices and orange rind. Makes me choke every year to have to buy them for special holidays. They love them but I despise them.

I love all other olives and haven't found another combination that I dislike but something about those . . .

Honestly...I am not picky at all. First thing that came to mind was clams. Yuck yuck yuck. And hubby loves them.

Never heard of mashed peas. Not sure how I would feel about them either.....

Liver - of any kind. (Where's the projectile vomit emoticon?) lol

I will say, those mushy peas do look rather disgusting, as well! ;D

Anything with cilantro on it. That is the worst spice ever and ruins so many great dishes.

I cannot eat anything offall, I think it is so discusting :-\
I hate tuna, in any form :(
I don't lie clams or oysters :-\
And I have this life-long resistance to the traditional Norwegian dish Lutefisk
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lutefisk
This last has a lot to do with the fact that I had to eat it when I was six, and this is not a kid-friendly dish to say so...

I love reading all these.

What Diana, cilantro, it's like one of my favorite herbs!!!

What came to mind for me is 'eggnog'!! eewww :-X
Around the holidays my husband would pour himself a big tall glass and slurp away, it would send shivers up my spine!

Sorry girls — not sure why, but I do not like Cilantro. Some of the things you all are listing (like eggnog) I think are so tasty!! Tastebuds are funny things.

hahahaha. I read that and really did LOL. Also, add me to the I like cilantro camp.

What I absolutely cannot eat - almost all cooked fruit. bleh. It's all about the texture for me and not the taste....just.... too..... slimey.

Althouth I would try those mushy peas, Lisa, they don't look or sound very appetizing.

Mushy peas sound disgusting.
I can't even stand the thought of oysters. Yuck. My ex loved them and I would cook them for him - even that was yucky.
