Foods formerly blech now yum!
Blech: they tasted like dirt and had a funny texture.
Yum: I realized that I like beets when Peter prepared a salad for me featuring beets and dill. I buy the cooked packaged beets occasionally and in the last 5 days I have had beets three times – once on pasta. I was so delighted by my impromptu pasta that I’ve been telling everyone: girondelle, cut up beets, lemon juice, cream, leftover chicken breast, salt and pepper.
Blech: waaah, what is this squishy stuff in my salad Mom?!?! Yuck.
Yum: avocados in all forms. I’ve been onto avocado for a while now, not sure when I started to really like them. Tomato and avocado salad is a favourite summer meal of mine.
Blech: my all time most hated vegetable. I can’t begin to describe how awful I thought they tasted. In university a roommate made them and convinced me to give them a try after 15 years. They tasted awful.
Yum: Jessica and I spent my first Christmas in Berlin together and Jessica absolutely wanted to have brussels sprouts. I wasn’t convinced but decided to be a good sport. Sauteed in garlic, they were tender and delicious. Recently I sauteed some in some duck fat from the duck roulade from the market that I roasted. Of course, anything in duck fat is pretty good so it might not be a fair test.
I’d be interested in the food you’ve learned to love. Leave a comment!
