Random of the day

Total randomness today - Foods I dislike.

I cannot stand any form of mayo, miracle whip, sour cream, or salad dressing. To be in the same room as salad dressing makes me slightly ill. Seriously, the smell is just wrong. How can people eat something that smells like that? I know, I know- I'm weird. I get told that all the time. But I was raised in a family where nobody but my mom liked that sort of stuff. And it still makes me sick to this day. When pregnant with Camden, my birthday dinner was ruined because I could smell somebody's salad dressing across the restaurant and it nauseated me. People ask me all the time what I eat on a salad or sandwich then. The truth? Dry! Sometimes I put mustard on a sandwich, but tomatoes really give it any needed moisture. Salads I douse with fresh squeezed lemons. I cannot eat any form of pasta, macaroni, or potato salad because of the dressing factor. People post recipes that call for ranch or mayo and I have to pass them by.

The other thing I don't like much? Cheese. Yup, you read that right - cheese. I can handle small amounts, but I don't like to eat a ton of it. I will occasionally eat small amounts of straight cheese, but I have to have a major craving for that. I do like cheese on things like tacos, pizza, enchiladas, etc, but again, not a ton. I like my pizza with less cheese, not more. Again, it limits my recipes when I read one that calls for 2 cups of cheese or something like that. I'm not a huge fan of lasagna because of all the cheese.

So I can admit it. I'm weird when it comes to certain food ingredients. What foods do you dislike?

Wow, we could never have dinner together!

I am not a big fan of vinagary "pickled" things - like harvard beets or three-bean salad in a vinegar dressing.

Zoe said...

LOL! WOW! I thought that my hubby was bad. :) Actually, I think that there are worse things then not liking cheese or mayo, etc. Those are probably good things not to like! I myself cannot eat green beans! YUCK! But, unfortunately, I will eat just about anything else! LOL!

You little boy is so precious, boys are so tender with their mamas! I am so grateful for mine.

I love cheese, and I've got the cholesterol in my bloodstream to prove it. As for me, I don't care for meat, especially beef and pork and bone-in chicken. I can't tolerate gristle or bones 'n' veins.

I cannot stand any form of BBQ except for the rare Hot Dog. I also cannot stand the BBQ sauce. I'm also not a big fan of any time of sausage. If anything I'm eating has been near a sausage I cannot eat it!

Mel said...

I hate raw tomatoes and Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.

Kristen said...

Wow. We might never want to eat in a restaurant together. ;-) I douse my salads with so much dressing you can barely see the salad, and cheese?! I survived on it when I was a kid and still love, love, love it.

What do I not like? Any food that comes from an ocean, river, lake, etc...none of that for me, thanks!

Mama D said...

I'm sorry but that is just wrong. Can mayo be a favorite food? I dip my french fries in it. I hear it's a dutch thing. Not that I'm dutch. And cheese. I love cheese. I have a rule about it. You can never put too much cheese on anything. Or too many mushrooms. But what do I dislike? Green Peppers. Hate em'. Black Olives. Ick. That's all I can think of for now.

Andrea said...

Eating too much cheese makes me sick, so i can understand that. Macaroni Cheese is way too much for me. I love salad dressings and mayo though. I can't stand olives! ick.

Maine Mom said...

You wouldn't want to eat with me, either. I love everything you hate!
The things I refuse to eat...raw tomatoes and onions, black olives.

Stacy said...

If I had your dislikes I would weigh a LOT less! (two of my weaknesses there)

For me? Seafood of ALL varieties (and I live in SEATTLE!!!)

Jane said...

I do not like Gravy in any form. I just think it is like pouring oil on your mashed potatoes. Yummy sweet butter tastes so much better. I also do not like fake potatoes.

I like miracle whip, but not a big fan of mayo. And salad has to have dressing, I can't believe you eat yours naked! :)

Meemer said...

liver, and brussle sprouts. Oh and that anko from japan. ew! Give me the sushi thanks, but leave that soybean stuff for the next person.

mommy to four j's said...

Oh how I wish that I did not like cheese. I hate many vegetables like brocolli and cauliflower yuck they both really gross me out. A weird thing is I like a lot of vegetables raw I hate most veggies cooked.

GiBee said...

Liver, broccoli, and okra.


Nicole said...

Have you thought about maybe a sprinkling of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkling of some red wine vinegar on your salads?

Also, you should get a recipe for Olive Tapenade or some Lemon Garlic Aioli which really makes a great spread on sandwiches.

Personally I hate chicken thighs. The texture makes me gag. I don't like beans. I can't eat mushrooms (allergic).

emlouisa said...

You are a freak.


I LOVE mayo, love salad dressing and love love love love love cheese. Yum!!!!!!!! My sil doesn't like cheese much either and always wants to get "light on the cheese" pizza. Ew Ew Ew. What's the point?

I think the two of you would get along fabulously.

Dawnyel said...

Okay, so I have to agree with the majority...I love mayo and cheese...but only when I'm in the mood!
Things I can't stand?? MUSHROOMS!! Get those slimedoggers away from my face!! :)

The list for me is way too long. I can't stand vegetables. I think the only ones I eat are lettuce, raw carrots and corn. My husband says those don't count. They do for me!!
