I can't think of a vegetable I don't eat. I am not particularly found of summer turnips, but I will eat them. Fruit, on the other hand, I don't eat bananas or pears. Not because of the taste, but because of the texture and smell.

Keep the bacon or pancetta in the mix, along with some onion, garlic and balsamic, then I'm right there with you!

Taste does change with age, but there are some things everyone just can't stand. When it comes to foods I like but Karen doesn't, I'll make them when she goes out of town to visit. When it comes to the SIL, I make them anyway!

I wish everyone thought that way, Andy. I find myself removing and replacing entire sentences sometimes, due to their having more than one meaning, usually specified with inflection, that can't be defined in print only. When I read a post that the OP obviously didn't take the time to either spell check or proof read, and it has ambiguous statements throughout it, it's irritating to me. Just a few seconds with spellcheck turns misunderstanding into clear and precise communication.

Words are tools. Sure, you can beat a nail in with a screwdriver, but using the hammer will get the job done much better.

We seem to have two threads going on the same topic:

This is one of my favorite ways to cook them, I add a drizzle of maple syrup to the pan:

I like them too, Babe. I like all veggies. If the veggie dish is not to my liking, it is due to the way it was made/served.

I cook my B sprouts just the opposite. I saute them and then I add a little broth and steam them. I'll have to try them with butter next time instead of EVOO.
