As a child the thought of meatloaf made me ill. Now, its one of my favorite comfort foods.

As an adult, I disliked curries for several years, after the fifth or sixth try however, I developed a taste for them, and now I'm addicted. I'll make a curry dish or get Indian take out about once a week.

Finally reached my goal weight- 120 lbs- & never going back!

Onions was one.... I still don't like their texture and usually when I cook with them, I leave them really big so I can pick them out or chop up finely so I don't see them.

Oysters... mom always made oyster stew, which I loved the stew and omitted the oysters. Then one day, I was trying to get all the oysters I could.

I am of the thinking now, I will try everything at least once before deciding if I like it or not. Even if it was something I did not like as a kid.

Prawns (scampi). I was just totally irked by the look of them, so I refused to eat them until I was about 10. Then, at my cousin's house my aunt served me this heavily breaded fried prawns, not being able to see what's inside + seeing my cousins joyously devouring them, I ate them also and oh, yum, one of the best things I ever had eaten!! Then afterwards I learned they were actually prawns... but I guess I already had that "prawn girl" in me, I happily accepted the fact and decided prawns were my new fave food. If they were, say, escargots, I would have blown chunks right away!!

I wouldn't say love, but I kinda like tuna salad now. I hated it as a kid.

Beets and most veggies but especially beets---my mother was not a cook--her idea of veggies was to open a can----ughhhhhh---then I accidentally ate borscht overseas- about 6 months ago---OMG it was to die for it was so delicious----Unfortunately I still HATE liver but love most fresh or frozen veggies---not canned.
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Hated meatloaf, sauerkraut and liver and onions. Now I make meatloaf and sauerkraut all the time. But still can't eat the liver and onions.
There is no path to yesterday.

I just recently discovered that I like cottage cheese, thanks to my youngest grandson, and I can now eat okra, if it's in a soup.

We get by with a little help from our friends
