Olives/olive oil

This may sound silly but.........I love EVOO and HATE olives........it's a texture thing I think. What do you love and hate???


Just because someone tells you that you can't do something doesn't mean you have to listen.

My partner is exactly the same, he hates olives, but adores olive oil. He tries to like them, I think it's the bitterness that turns him off. I love olives. I can't think of anything I hate, except for English Indian curries, they cook the curries too long and the spices go off. Horrible. I love spicy food other than that.

I can eat them in some things, but I have never liked peanuts. But peanut butter? I love peanut butter! I also like fig newtons but hate fresh figs.

How funny. Every once in awhile a freind will hear me say I don't care for something, food wise, and they are in shock. Mine are grits (and trust me, I've tried every prep known to mankind), corn bread, and collard greens. Duh, guess I'm not a southerner? Oh, milk. Milk and cornbread are the oddities, because I LOVE literally anything else made with milk or with corn. One time a friend's mom told me (I was 6 or 7) that I'd never grow up to be tall and strong because I hated milk. I'm 5'10" and could probably pull an ox cart, so got the last laugh on that one!

My Dad said I would have curly hair if I ate toast - so I DIDN'T!!!!!!!!!!

I have VERY curly/frizzy hair that I am CONSTANTLY doing things to tame it - right down to the Japanese thermal straightening. So, at the ripe old age of "almost" 50 I FINALLY have manageable hair and I EAT TOAST NOW!!!!!

I like chocolate - and I like peanut butter BUT don't put them together

I like nuts - BUT don't put them in any chocolate (it's gross)

Well, I must go - we're getting some major wind from Frances!!!!! Things are blowing aw;ay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

edited to say....ok - it was just a bit "gusty" but the rains have started. My husband's an insurance adjuster - I think I'll call our local psychiatric hospital and reserve a bed now - gosh, he's going to be busy. Good for business (except it is just him and me), bad because I won't "see" him for a couple months - he'll work such long hours at the office and just sleep there. He works until his head hits his desk (he said one morning that his nose hurt, I said I know, I heard it hit your desk ) Poor thing.

(sorry, I ddin't mean to hijack your post) - back on topic now!!!!!!

I love cheese but don't put in anything other than pizza.

Gee, my Gramma used to tell me burned toast makes you sing. Thing was, she was a truly lousy cook, and a mediocre singer. Lovely lady, though!!!

About the only thing I have a love-hate relationship with is spinach. I cannot stand the scent of cooked spinach. It 's makes me naseous. However, I love raw spinach in salads.

My love/hate relationship involves clams/oysters...

I hate raw clams, but I love clam chowder...

I hate raw oysters, but I love Oysters Rockefeller.

As far as cooked spinach.. I don't like it for the most part.. but I like it in some dips and lasagna.. I like it mainly in a good salad.
