As I was carefully removing all of the peas from my chinese fried rice tonight I thought I'd post the top 4 foods that you will prolly never see me use.
1. Peas. I will remove them from anything I eat before I eat one bite of it. Except in a veggie samosa at an indian restaurant. I will remove peas as I see them but it's hard to remove all of them from a samosa so I end up eating some. When my mom would make macaroni salad she alway's put peas in it. There would be a mountain of peas on the side of my plate when I was finished eating dinner which my dad would end up eating.
2. Celery. I believe I hate celery more than I hate peas. Again..my mom put celery in her potato salad...I had to pick it all out. I can tolerate some celery in a soup or something like that where it isn't a strong flavor. It isn't even an ingredient I put in soups that I create. For some reason though I've tried to like celery. I've smothered it in peanut butter, that didn't work. I've peeled away the stringy bits because that's suppose to make it taste better someone told me...they lied. I might use it from time to time in a vegetable stock..but that's it.
3. Seaweed (not counting agar agar). Seaweed=vomit in my mind. The taste is so evil. This is another food that I hate that I've tried to like. I hate it so much I'm not even going to talk about my hate.
4. Black Olives. Now I love kalamata olives and some green olives but the black olives you find on nachos and the like leave such a nasty after taste in my mouth that I cannot get rid of. I hate them so much that it took me forever to even try different types of olives..thank goodness I did..I love my kalamata's.
I just looked up black olives and found out this info....."Canned black olives may contain chemicals that turn them black artificially." Know wonder they leave such a bad after taste.
