A very young PF, ended up at her friends home for the weekend. Young PF always ate everything on her plate, without making faces or complaining, especially in front of other people. She was presented with brains and eggs...she ate the horrid things, all of them and never said a word.

My Dad worked with my friend's dad and he was telling the friend's Dad about me not liking the brains...friend's Dad told my Dad I was a perfect Lady and never even gave them the idea that I did not like them.

My mother would have wanted me to do the same....and I'd like to think that I would have....but....it may be likely that you were brought up better than me. Seriously though, I would have done nothing to offend...but if there was a dog under the table, well...my sleight of hand with food was legendary. There is a reason that I was a skinny kid.

Nearly forgot, didn't eat cooked raisins as a kid and still don't (dried flies :P) I replace my raisins in baking with currants.

LOL! I didn't grow up with a dog under the table, it never would have occurred to me... It wasn't that I was such a good kid...I was just too shy and timid as a littl'un in front of other adults. I home I had no problem.

Tomatoes. Still not my favorite as a single item but I love them in so many dishes.

Meatloaf. I make it now and my kids love it. Not sure what my problem was?

Pizza. Took until my teen years to like that.

Eggplant and beets. Eggplant parm is now one of my favorite foods and I love fresh beets in salads. Still can't eat the pickled canned stuff though. Also, pork chops. I've realized that I just didn't like the way my mom made them. The other stuff, blue cheese, raw onions and olives, I still haven't developed a taste for. For the most part, I would eat most anything as a kid as well as now.

I'm glad no one tried to serve me anything like that because I would have done the same as you.

Once at a Christmas party the hostess gave my sister and me a piece of pecan pie (one of my favorites) along with a glass of ginger ale! They absolutely do not go together, and 13-year-old girls don't usually care much for ginger ale anyway, but I was very polite and didn't say anything.

As a mom I learned to take advantage of the situation though. Nancy was a kind of picky eater growing up. She ate what she was served, but she sometimes balked at trying new foods. She learned to eat new foods without a fuss by eating at her friends' houses. Sometimes she discovered new foods that she loved, and sometimes it made her appreciate our home cooking a little more.

when i was a kid, bone marrow grossed me out - those disgusting fat globules floating in a stock pot of otherwise perfectly good soup. today you can find me searching deep within every soup bone and fishing out those now savored bits of marrow out of the soup pot. am i the only one who does that?

I ate morrow as a kid. I would eat it from the small round bone in the Swiss steaks my mother made. And once in a blue moon I will roast some morrow bones and serve on toasted french bread with a shallot, capers, parsley mixture, but it is hard to find good morrow bones around here anymore.
