Except for Gazpacho, I HATE tomato soup and most tomato-based sauces, but I love tomatoes and tomato juice. I blame it on my Dad's cream of tomato soup.

WOW!
I'm sitting here racking my brain...

Tomato anything doesn't agree with me so, I can't say I don't like it, it doesn't like ME! Some Shell fish, also, allergic, love oysters, but, Ooh MAN! Not a good reaction.

I like coffee
I like tofu
I LOVE Sashimi and Sushi (and yes Virginia, they are totally different dishes)
I like caviar
I like all beans
I've learned to like Brussel Sprouts
I LOVE sweets (just not too overly sweet though)
I like Venison, Buffalo, Goat, Pheasant, Rabbit, Lamb, Quail, Duck, Elk, Moose, Partridge, Wild Boar ... MEAT!!!
I like fruits, star fruit is ok, but not my first choice
I'll drink just about any alcoholic beverage (CD have you tried Prosecco? a sweet Italian sparkling wine, YUM!)
<edit> that's what I forgot to say... Turtle, it's delicious, but ban in Hawaii now. We use to go diving and catch our own, MMM!

OH, but no Gin or Scotch/Bourbon.
Ooh, OOH, I do not care for Mango, Papaya, Breadfruit, Cantaloupe (the melon family in general).
No Cauliflower or Offal (other than Chicken Liver Patè),
I think lastly, Anchovies TOTALLY GROSS ME OUT! I can't even touch them , smell them , ACK! DH loves them on his salad as well as Pizza---I'm a good wife and use tongs and hold my nose!!!

Yes, I always have Prosecco on NYE, although not all of them are sweet. I prefer a little drier Prosecco.

I like most foods. There really is very little I don't like.
  • Sea Urchin. Weird texture with a fishy flavor. I've tried it twice. It isn't something I would classify as a food "everyone else likes," though.
  • Caviar, although I don't dismiss all of it. I once went to a caviar tasting in Las Vegas to see if maybe there was something I was missing. I had a couple that I thought were okay. But I wouldn't go out of my way for it.
  • Single Malt Scotch. I've tried it and tried it, and I just don't like it. I can understand why some people would, because there is something interesting about it. But it's just not my thing.
  • Budget Wine (think "two buck Chuck" or Yellow Tail). I'm not as much of a wine snob as you might think. I like almost anything that's well made. But some of the budget brands just taste taste to me like wine that's been open for a week, even when you've just opened it.
  • Tequila. Nope. Won't drink it, even if mixed with something else.

I would agree with all but tequila, and at one time I'd have agreed there too. I've changed my view on that one recently. When anyone celebrates a birthday or other occasion at the local watering hole, a shot of tequila is often obligatory. When they break out the Patron, I find that it's not bad. I don't even do the salt and lime with it - it goes down smoothly with no bite. I was pleasantly surprised.

Yeah, the problem with tequila shots is that too many people use something cheap, like Cuervo Gold. Use a Patron or Cabo Wabo silver, and it is a MUCH different experience. But, those tequilas are VERY pricey.

Oh yeah, with a high-end tequila, no salt or lime is necessary.

Which reminds me...

13. Gin
