Foods I Like That You May Not
Posted on 10:27, May 1st, 2009 by Small Town Mommy
I am not a joiner. I tend to speak my mind and usually end up offending someone (usually the person in charge). Sometimes, I don’t even realize I did it (yes, I am that clueless). Even in school, I wasn’t a fan of cliques. Now that I am grown, I want to spend time with the people I like. Life is to short to waste with annoying people.
This leads me to the fact that I have joined a blogging group. The group is called Blogging for Fun and was started by Melissa. So far, I haven’t offended Melissa, but it’s still early.
I bet by now you are wondering why you should care. If I had an exciting story about offending Melissa, you might be interested, but compatibility is boring (why do you think Jerry Springer is so popular). The reason I am writing about this is that Melissa wants all of us to participate in weekly themes. I ignored last week’s theme, but since I am trying to appear agreeable, I thought I better participate this week.
This week’s theme is gross food that I like. I don’t think anything I like is gross, it is all delicious and wonderful. But, that isn’t going to make a story. I guess if I put myself in other people’s shoes, some of the things I like might be considered a little bit ewww.
I am a bit torn so I am going to share 2 things that I love. One may sound disgusting (not to me, but possibly to you) and one may look disgusting (ok, even I will agree these are not the prettiest food).
For the food that sounds disgusting… french fries with mayonnaise. I had a roommate in college who used to eat french fries with mayo and ok, I will admit it, I thought it was disgusting. Then I tried it. Before writing me off as disgusting, give it a try. It really is tasty. French fries are also delicious with both mayonnaise and ketchup.
For the food that looks disgusting, I would have to say steamers.

Even I will admit that maybe they are kind of, sort of, gross looking. But, they are so delicious, it more than makes up for the way they look. Yum, just looking at this photo is making me hungry.
Is there any food that you like that others might consider gross? Let me know, I am always looking for new
