Food You're Burned Out On

Not sure what triggered this one, but I wonder what you don't eat anymore because you're sick of it (not because you've never liked it) for such reasons as listed below:
  • Mom made it every dang week
  • Had to eat a lot of it when I was broke
  • Associated with stressful events
  • Stuffed my face and got sick
  • etc.
Here's a few of mine:

pasta salad
brown rice
most lunch meats

I still eat it, but I'm tired of it..

Pizza! We work long hours and many times we forget to unthaw something for dinner. So we end up getting pizza or some other take out. Were totally tired of it but continue to get it.

oooh, you're right, Robin. Same here, and that goes double for french fries.

Maybe if someone named MJ would make us one of his killer homemade pizzas.............

At the moment, chicken. We've just had too much of it lately. Actually I'm pretty tired of meat. I could easily go vegetarian for periods of time and avoid all meat but DH would probably die if we did. I've been determined to not cook 2 different meals so I've been eating more meat than I'd like.

I can't eat Chex Mix--I got the flu once after eating it. DH would have an extensive list: peanut butter (which I still love even tho it's about all I ate when I was really little), most veggies, bologna and, at the moment, peas and peppers.

I could eat pizza every day (hint, hint MJ! )!

I can't think of anything... maybe, that's why I'm getting bigger and bigger every day.

We're making homemade pizza for dinner. You're all welcome to
come join us. I can't promise that it's as good as MJ's but, Paul makes a great dough and I do a pretty dang good sauce.

I am temporarily tired of BBQ, beans, and slaw, because I ate leftovers from the cook-out all last week.
My mother was always good about serving a variety of foods, and even when I had very little, I did the same.
I guess the worst time was when my husband and I were building a house, shop, and commercial greenhouse at the same time. Later, in was the same way in the spring, with him working a full time job as mine manager, then coming home and doing the bookwork, while I worked by tail off in the greenhouse. I got so tired of McYuck's and pizza!
We finally got a deep freeze, and in the winter, when I had time to cook, I'd make extra and freeze for a meal later on. I usually labeled, but not always, and sometimes when HB came home from work and asked, "What's for supper," I'd say, "Whatever's in that ziplock, dear". Kind of like a grab bag...

I agree with the pancake bit. I can't eat Bisquick pancakes anymore, as we ate them every weekend for years.

Other than that, there's some entrees from a couple different Chinese restaurants that I just can't eat anymore, total burnout.
