ah, i thought you were talking about food I make myself, not store bought. Store bought I think every food available she introduced to me. I come from different country and had no idea what anything is here.

You are what you eat.

So many things Roasted red peppers, red leaf lettuce, cucumbers in vinegar (not regular dill pickles - quick pickles), asparagus not cooked to death, balsamic vinegar, good olive oil, fresh herbs, real Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and more.

Granted I learned about most of these things just before introducing him to them We were very young when we married in 1984 and I had had a typical 60s-70s suburban upbringing, so the most exotic food we had was my German great-grandmother's sauerkraut. My greats ran a farm, but my great-grandfather was injured in a tractor accident when I was a kid, so they were retired by the time we were coming up.

Over the years, we have both expanded our tastes and culinary interests. Except for certain foods he really dislikes, he's willing to try just about anything I make

Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

Mrs. T now just asks "What's for dinner?" There are a few things that I know she doesn't particularly like (like sauerkraut and calamari), but otherwise she gets a lot of surprises, and is happy to try new things. I think it's safe to say that she never had a lot of what I make before we were married, and she is pretty happy about it.
