Sleg!

Slegte Kos! (Bad tasting food).  I am still stuck on this - what makes something taste good to some and horrible to others.

I do not like tripe, liver or kidneys and I do not drink milk.  That is not too uncommon - many people do not eat tripe.

I cannot stand cotton candy (candyfloss)(spookasem).  I cannot touch it and I cannot put it in my mouth.  I know people who won't eat cheese.  I know someone who are positively revolted by fresh fruit and someone who shuns butter, margarine & mayonaise.

Do you have any particular food dislikes and why?

I happen to love tripe. My mother doesn't drink milk either. I will eat fruit when it's cooked but hate it raw, I don't like it's type of sweetness for some reason.

I eat practically everything because I love food and I am just greedy like that.
OK. I do not eat brains, offal, tripe, kidneys. But I like liver. And I cannot eat litchis because it looks like eyes.

Patchwork - Thanks for stopping by!

Julia - are they watching you?

I thought of you today (or some idea of you since I don't know who you are) when I ate a Woolies sandwich as I drove to a meeting.

I don't eat pilchards.

I don't drink milk either. Partaking of another species' lactate is a bit gross to me.

I dislike bananas. I have learnt to eat them as is, but if they're mashed or cooked, I can't go near them. I always ask for my smoothies without banana.

I also don't like most normal desserts - jelly (I like to play with it though), custard (although oddly enough, I crave it when I'm sick), sponge cake, trifle, apple pie or anything with cooked pears... yuck. Give me something chocolately - mousse, brownies, mud pie. Yum.

The only veggie I don't like is Brussel sprouts, they are just too strong.
Not a fan of all the offal they stuff but the rest I think I am pretty open to anything. I love food, good tasty yummy food. It kills me that one of the few place we can eat out with kids is Spur as they have a kids area. I can't wait until we can go to proper places. I had such yummy Tai Green curry the other night when we went out with friends without the kids

There's not much I don't eat... I'm not mad about tripe or tongue, but I like liver and I don't mind kidneys. I love ice cold full cream milk and I can eat candyfloss by the ton!!
