Yes, this week’s FFT is very similar to last week’s. But today we’re talking about food aversions. As in, foods you hate, can’t touch, won’t go near with a ten foot pole. Maybe you were hit with a bad case of the stomach flu after eating Grandma’s lasagna. Or you came down with food poisoning after dining at a particular restaurant. Perhaps your aversion developed during pregnancy, and never went away. Or maybe you overindulged in a certain something for way too long, and now can never eat it again. Whatever the case may be, tell us about it! We’d love to hear your food aversions this week!!
As for ours…
Anne: I actually blogged about this a year ago. You can read the whole story here- why I hate meatballs. My number one food aversion is meatballs. I’m also very averse to sweaty cheese. Again, just go back and read the meatball story. Last week a few commenters brought up oysters. I have never even come close to eating an oyster. I have no clue what it would taste like. But the mere thought of allowing such a slippery, scary thing from the sea to touch my lips and slip down my throat makes me want to gag. [Yes, that’s what she said. PAT.]
Jen: I am a pretty adventurous eater and will try pretty much anything. There are things I don’t care for, but really only one thing that makes me run. Sloppy joe’s. I know! Who doesn’t like sloppy joe’s? Back when I was around 8, we were visiting my grandparents and she had made sloppy joe’s. I thought they were fantastic so I ate a lot of them (3 or 4 maybe?). I proceeded to be sick all afternoon…..really sick. Ever since then, the smell of sloppy joe’s makes my stomach churn and makes me think of my afternoon in grandma’s bathroom.
So, let us hear it. What is your food aversion?
Last year: Jen positively ranted about hummus
