No lima beans then or now. So far, as we try different cuisines, I haven't found much that I dislike. What do you think about uni and geoduck?

There are things that I won't touch now that I had as a steady diet as a kid, most of which are certain fast food chain burgers. These were what my mother "cooked" for dinner.

What kind of person bothers to toast bread, then ruin it in milk?
Another version that came out of the Great Depression was toast or bread with stewed tomatoes ladled over it.

Bread salad or Panzanella is another creation that I can't wrap my head around.

I'm ok with using stale bread but I need to be in control of the dunking!

Mom would tear up fresh bread into a bowl, sprinkle sugar on, pour milk over...for our breakfast. It occurs to me, this usually happened at the end of the month, it's possible we were out of cereal.

The doctor did blood tests that came back negative. He finally asked if I liked mikan, and how many did I usually eat. He almost passed out when I told him a bag a day. And then he started laughing. All I had was a keratin overdose!
I like clementines also, but they don't like me - or should I say they don't like my blood sugar.

That sounds like my son when he was little - pancakes poptarts, mayonnaise sandwiches, and Happy Meals...... thankfully his tastes have changed since he's grown up.

The only thing I can think of that I hated as a kid and eat now is lettuce. More specifically, iceberg lettuce. I'll tolerate an iceberg leaf in a sandwich now, but not in a salad. A "wedge salad" that has made a comeback lately on menus turns my stomach.
I love salads now and eat them nearly daily, but they better not contain iceberg lettuce.
Brussel sprouts are another story. Contrary to what some claim, there's nothing that can save those balls of the devil...not even bacon or the Holy Spirit.

lol

I like chicken liver in rumaki or liver in onions and bacon. I like brussel sprouts. I like that no one else likes them, the cost stays low because no competition for them, and they are delicious. I like lima beans, I like peas, canned or frozen. I'll never starve.

For some strange reason, I can not get through to my kids that there are natural sugars in fruit along with other foods. If is isn't granulated and comes in a five pound bag, then it is not sugar. I love pretty much all fruit. But it is a limited item in what I eat.

Broccoli and cauliflower. I'd only eat them smothered in cheese. Now I love plain steamed broccoli, but I still hate cauliflower. Not even cheese is enough to get me to eat it.

I didn't like steak as a kid, because my parents only made sirloin cooked to death, so I just thought steak was dry and tough. Then on my honeymoon I decided on a whim to order a filet topped with a peanut sauce at a Cuban restaurant. It was so tender and juicy! I now love steak, but prefer better cuts cooked to a more rosy temperature.

Blueberries and strawberries don't bother me much, in limited quantities - 1/2 cup a day.
