Mine was sauerkraut aparently my mother didn't know anything about cooking so from as far back as I can remember (about 4 years old) my sister, brother and I were fixed nothing but plain ole sauerkraut with weiners for supper every night and to this day I can't stand even so much as the sight and smell of sauerkraut.

My mom had a habit of making a double recipe of mashed potatoes so some would be leftover for lefse (Norwegian flatbread). SHe would also use them the next day for potatoe patties. One night my brother came home and found this rolled up package in the fridge and assumed it was potatoes. Soooo he added pepper, made the patties and floured them and fired them in the skillet, and opened a can of gravey. He did not realize until he took a bite that the stuff was sugar cookie dough. I found that very funny even though he did not. He must have had a nasal problem because I would never take forgranted stuff in a package in the fridge, sniffing works. He did not do that again, and my mom was really angry as she was to make the cookies in the morning to take to her ladies club meeting.

While it's not a worst story, it is something I find really bothersome.

I went to a child's birthday party a few years ago. Lots and lots of people there. When I saw the cake, I couldn't get over the fact that we were eating a cake with the face of the kid on the cake.

I just find it so unappetizing to be eating a cake decorated with the face of a real person, much less the child of honor...

"Oh! Look! I'm eating your nose!"

So many stories, so little time!
My mothers dompf noodle..a strange heavy yeasty bread thing with CANNED peaches!


When I first dated my husband his mother was just venturing into chinese food. I come from a metropolitan area with some finer dining chinese restaurants so I really enjoy Chinese...and Thai and Sushi and...oh back on track, anyway I was game for a home cooked Chinese meal.
It turned out to me chow mein from a CAN! Yuk. She has since improved!

When my sister and I were teenagers our neighbors invited us over for spaghetti. I LOVE garlic. However, this spaghetti had SO much garlic that it almost made us sick. We both ate our whole plate of food, to be polite. No matter how many showers we took, our pores oozed strong garlic for days! No one could stand to be near us. The good news is that we were also not bothered by vampires or werewolves!

I love garlic, and I use a lot of it myself! But this spaghetti was absolutely bitter with it. It didn't have that good garlicky taste. It was awful! When people can smell you coming because of the garlic smell coming from your skin, that's not quite normal!
