I grew up in a house where you had meat, usually beef, at every meal. In high school I worked at McDonalds and ate their food three times a day. Now, I can't stand the sight of raw meat and the only meat that even smells good anymore is bacon and I can't even picture myself eating that.

Sunday mornings, the smell of menudo wafts through the air in our neighborhood, as it is prepared and sold from the doorstep to treat hangovers. It actually smells pretty good: lots of onions, garlic, chiles, tomatoes. But I see it in the markets BEFORE it is cooked, and I will pass.

EXACTLY. it DOES smell great, though. I'll give it that.

have to say I have had menudo that I thought was awful, but that was because I had already had some that was SO fabulously good, I could have eaten three bowlsful! so it CAN be delicious. I think it depends upon who's cooking it. The fab stuff was at a little hole in the wall in the Pilsen neighborhood in Chicago.

Isn't that always the case. The best Indian food I've had in a restaurant was in Sacramento, of all places, in a place with half a dozen seats, run by a woman who barely spoke a word of English.

For me it would be anything overly sweet.

Even as a kid - while I liked chocolate - I didn't like cake or candy. Preferred fruit pies/cobblers, etc., unsweetened whipped cream (REAL whipped cream - even as a kid I hated Cool Whip).

These days, I only like dark chocolate & vaguely sweet desserts. Don't even care for sweet fruit pie all that much anymore. Once in awhile I'll get a hankering for it, but it really is "once in awhile".
