Anything that comes out of a box with the words Hamburger Helper on it and tuna fish!

My mom was pretty good about not making us eat something we really hated, but we had to try new things. I'll never forget the fig episode though. Someone gave us some fresh figs. My sister and I hated them, but we had to eat the whole bowl. I have never tried them since. I do like Fig Newtons though.

Tuna casserole is another one I won't eat. Anything with egg noodles pretty much. My mother's problem was she wasn't a good cook so she relied on things and cooked them over and over again. That's why, to this day, ham steak just sends shivers down my spine.

I don't remeber being forced to eat anything - my mum did things like kidney that we children do not eat- the other was fish, I never really liked her fish but I am learning to cook it to my taste.

I must admit I was once forced to eat kidney at boarding school - NEVER AGAIN.

there was a second food- macaroni, cheddar cheese, & tomatoes. just gobs of cheese on plain elbows, with crushed canned tomato. ~shudder~

another was ham, cabbage & potato soup. or, cabbage (& i love cabbage), & cubed taters (&taters), with bacon (& i especially love bacon), with a watery ham-base flavored broth. boiled bacon, YUCK! they shoulda garnished with a mr. yuck sticker!!
i dined on my own food those nites.

Liver and onions although I still like Braunsweiger/Liver wurst. Still hate canned peas, steamed cabbage the smell literally makes me gag. German liver dumplings, blood sausage.

I've never in my life eaten a brussel sprout. I also never had to eat liver as a kid. I do thank mom for that.
