Are you a picky eater?

i'm not a picky one.
i was born a not-picky eater until you tried to get me to take a taste of a tomato. now i adore tomatoes, tee-hee.
i'm pretty much open to new foods. there are a few things i won't eat, but i'm open to trying new things and re-trying old things that i didn't like at first. that
seafood salad that they offer at salad bars, raw bell peppers, the larger brussels sprouts (the petite ones aren't as bitter so i'm fine with those), pig's feet (although i've begun to reconsider those; my Dad loves pig's feet but when he offered me my first one i was more concerned with the fact that it was called a pig's foot than i was with the actual flavor of it. ).
how 'bout you?


i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

No and yes.

No = I'll eat a lot of different foods. I like to try new stuff.

Yes = I'm very particular about how foods are prepared.

You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.

I am not picky at all. There are things that I do not like, but with a good amount of those things I am willing to try them again from time to time to see if my tastes have changed. I am very open minded when it comes to trying new things. Even things that other people have described as disgusting. For instance, I am dying to try durian even though most people I have talked to said it is repulsive.

No I'm not picky. I pretty much will try most things.....except something that looks disgusting prior to cooking......like octopus or squid. I do have a hard time trying something I've tried in the past that about made me hurl the first time......memories flood my taste buds.

I don't consider myself a picky eater, ever since I was little I loved almost all vegetables!!
Well I just get picky when it comes to meat, the only kinds I like are boneless/skinless chicken or turkey breast, lean mince and a tender cut of pork that is FREE OF fat, gristle, bone or any other "disturbances". I don't even consider following items as food - any meat aside from chicken, turkey, pork or beef, like deer, lamb, rabbit, frog, grasshoppers etc., or organs, or any graphic body parts like toes, ears etc.
I like fish very much but only if they are perfectly filleted, I can't imagine how anyone could think "mmm, yummy, dinner!" looking at a whole dead fish with those beady eyes staring back.
I also hate anything prepared/seasoned with MSG(no not Madison Square Garden, Monosodium Glutamate!). To me MSG has a really strident flavour that overwhelms everything else, and gives a bland homogeneous taste to everything that is prepared with it.
Erm, well... maybe I am a wee bit picky!!
