******I don’t know what I did wrong in life but no running and 24 hours of no blogging (especially after this post, oh wait I can’t link my addiction to blogging post because they deleted it, boo)……..I seriously didn’t know what to do with my life. It hurt. Blogger was having issues and down all day long, don’t worry…I wrote them my fair share of hate mail and refreshed blogger at least 3,495,499,99 times. I ate a lot of chocolate to get through this tough time and now it is back and I feel better than ever.
So, here is the post that I meant to post yesterday afternoon….enjoy!!!!
As I was eating my delicious pb/banana toast I was remembering the fact that as a kid I HATED peanut butter, with a passion (unless it was covered with chocolate and given to me in the shape of an Easter egg).
It made me remember the foods that I hated as a kid and now I could not live without them……….
*******You may ask why I didn’t like these foods and the simple answer is that my sister didn’t. Yep, and 99% of these foods she still doesn’t like and wouldn’t come within five feet of them. No joke, she doesn’t like peanut butter to this day. Do not fret, I eat enough for her and her family and probably the next four generations of her family. Once my brain fully developed (still working on that one) and I tried them for myself I realized that they are the most delicious things in the world.
I thought you might like a picture of me chomping away on my breakfast. You are welcome. Note to self: Maybe I should go to a manners class to learn how to eat in a way that does not resemble a cows method of chewing.
Hot Dogs. I thought they looked like rubber as a kid and now I LOVE going with Billy to J-dawgs (okay, so it has to be a specialty hot dog, not just any ordinary hot dog and it has to have more toppings than can actually fit in the buns. Oh and the buns have to be super soft and fluffy).
If you have read my blog for at least 2 days you know that I have a strange love for broccoli, almost a love affair with the stuff. As a kid, I HATED it…….can’t blame my sis for this one but I can blame my lovely mother. She still won’t go near it and gets mad at me when I stink up the house and roast it with 14 cloves of garlic.
Now I get broccoli for Christmas presents from the in-laws…..okay, it is a long story but you can read about it here.
I know you aren’t going to believe this one but once again I blame the gorgeous sissy of mine…….I didn’t like fish!!! Technically, I didn’t ever try ANY until I was a teenager and instantly fell in love with all things fish…..salmon, tilapia, coconut encrusted tilapia, fish sticks, tuna, sushi, sashimi….you name it, I will eat it (except cat fish is just wrong on the tastebuds). I never claimed to be normal and the best restaurants in the world involve eating with your hands and require a bib.
Please note the red mark on my neck is not actually sauce splattered but a zit that refuses to go away for longer than 24 hours…there must be a sweat gland or something right there.
I also hated tomatoes and one time when a sibling was babysitting (I won’t mention any names here) they made me stay at the table until I ate them all and the gushing of the cherry tomatoes made me sick. Now as an adult (if you can call me that) I could eat one like an apple.
And for the grand finale……the only food that I didn’t like as a kid that I still despise with every fiber of my being…..
OLIVES. This picture of my niece eating four at a time actually makes me a little queasy.
If one even touches my Subway sandwich I will ask for a new one……once the flavor has been absorbed into anything else I am eating, it is ruined. I don’t get very hot-headed about many things but this one I know for sure- olives, stay far away from me.
One thing that I loved as a child, loved ever since and will always have a not-so-secret obsession for is CANDY!!!!
What foods did you hate as a kid? Why did you hate it? Have you grown to love them know?
