In that case, don't forget the kosher salt, EVOO and lemon juice

I feel like making some myself now.

Calves/beef liver, brussels sprouts, broccoli raab/rapini, cooked spinach - in fact, all cooked greens. Except for the calves/beef liver, I now LOVE the rest of them!

Yellow mustard (I won't mention the brand). I still hate it. Frozen bananas dipped in chocolate on a stick...the thought of that today turns my stomach, but used to eat those at the county fair every year.

Ditto on the Brussel sprouts and spinach BreezyCooking. Didn't much like them when I was a kid. Also; lamb, chick peas, blackberries & mango (too fibrous). Thankfully that's changed.

Unfortunately, there are also things that went the other way. As a kid I didn't have a problem with; boiled carrots, boiled cabbage, fish fingers or anchovies. Now I wouldn't touch 'em with a barge pole! :D

There were very few things that I wouldn't eat as a child. I liked most of the things that other kids hated. For example, in the school cafeteria "Spinach Day" was always a joy as most of my friends were more than happy to unload theirs onto my plate. I ate spinach back then with wild abandon. I also liked most funky cheeses (with the exception of Blue).

A few things I didn't care for were nuts, winter squash and sweet potatoes (my mom always slathered them in marshmallows or brown sugar - blecch!), and - with the exception of liver - any sort of offal or organ meat.

I'm still not big on organ meat, but have learned to love everything else.

There are lots of things I still hate. That's another subject.

Add sweet potatoes to my list.

I never had chick peas as a youngster, but they have the same unpleasant (to me) texture.

maybe the peas are overcooked. i eat lots of frozen ones. i thaw and zap for about 30 seconds, then add chopped onion and mayo. makes a nice little salad. really don't like cooked ones and maybe that is the problem. i do same with lima beans. don't care so much about them cooked. i like the crunch of both done that way.

I agree, Babe. Also, I only get the baby (petite) frozen peas, the regular ones are mealy for me too. Run them under hot water in a colander for a few seconds and throw them in my salads. Yum.
