If you ever get the chance, make an exception for cold smoked trout.

So that eliminates worms, insects, and anything that's still moving. I didn't eat sweet potatoes for the first 60 years of my life but when I was offered one baked...not with all the brown sugar and marshmallows, I found that I love them. So I decided that most foods can be prepared in different ways so that there's some way that I will eat them.
Twasn't me. I started it back in /011. It lasted for about one year and Vit woke it up to updated her post from then. But it sure is a thread that evokes a lot of replies. I would say we all are passionate regarding our food!

I'm lucky, DH usually likes what I cook. If he turns up his nose, he's free to scrounge.

Welcome to DC, Raspberry!
I've turned into a real Sashimi junkie...run out and get a couple of pieces and eat them in the car...

I'm not a fan of sashimi either. I have no problem with eating it. I just find it too bland.

I love smoked lake trout. I always buy it when I am in MN (unless I'm lucky enough and my cousin drops some of his off).

Our local HyVee now has a sushi/sashimi bar, have been wanting to try some, but since we're not located anywhere near an ocean, I'm a bit skittish.

If it is frozen on the fishing boat, it's fresher than the stuff brought to port. Ask if it's made from frozen fish. That kills parasites too.

Yes, good point. It just seems strange that we in a small town in the Heartland of USA would be getting fresh ocean fish!

Unhappy

Thanks. I'm having a terrible navigating these forums and some times I can't find the post button. Doing this all on cell phone as I don't have a computer.

Anyhow, now my picky husband is telling me the meats have been too dry lately. I always add a touch of olive oil to keep meat moist. I have to make sure everything is tender ( he refuses to wear his dentures), which usually means stewed or ground meats. He hates veggies. I'd tell him to cook for himelself but he is in a wheelchair. He used to own a restaurant, but he shakes too much to cook. As he gets older, he has gotten sooooo picky. Good thing our cats aren't! Every time I put his meal in frOnt of him I get a look. I'm about ready to plop the plate on his picky head! I hate picky eaters, they take the joy out of cooking. ***end of rant***
