Chris (my dh) has become a tad more adventersome in his later years. He has tried sushi, but is not fond of the raw stuff. He will eat the cooked rolls and such provided I cut it up in chunks for him. He can't seem to grasp the idea of putting the whole piece in his mouth. Dainty guy he is!!!

I never say I don't like something until I have tried it. However, one food I didn't think I would like is sushi. I finally tried it a couple years ago, and I love it.

Me - broccoli too. And mussels - just the word - 'til I realized I was eating clams, and couldn't figure out why the difference. And yogurt. When discribed as "good bacteria, or culture - and again I realized I was eating "sour" cream. LOL!

Hey, babe. Not all sushi contains raw fish, or even any seafood. There are varieties with cooked eel or shrimp, and those with only veggies.

I tried sushi a really long time ago and hated it; wouldn't try it again for years, till I finally broke down had it again. I realized that, for some reason, I don't like the kind with nori on the outside, but if it's rolled up inside and the rice is outside, I like that kind

I remember trying lentil soup once and being surprised that I liked it.

I used to cook okra for my first husband, and the snotty looking slime that oozed out when I cut it up grossed me out, and I wouldn't eat it for years. Now, I find that I like it in soups, although I still haven't had the nerve to eat it stewed with tomatoes, the way the ex liked it.

I agree with GotGarlic, babe. Sushi actually refers to the rice, not the fish. I completely disagree that it is just a fad too. Look at how long it has been enjoyed in Asia. It is very trendy here right now and that might not last. Something else will come along and takes it place as far as trendiness goes, but sushi will not go away. There are just too many people who love the stuff and do not want to live without it.

I am one of those people and sushi is what I came in here to post. The thought of it (at least the raw fish) made my skin crawl. I tasted it once, but it was not from a good place. That is sort of like judging what a hamburger tastes like by going to McDonalds.

Thankfully I decided to try it a second time a few years later at a very good sushi restaurant. I am very happy I had an open mind (although my wallet is not happy). It is by far my favorite food now. It is the only food I have ever had an addiction to. Sometimes the craving hits so hard that now matter what I am doing I know I NEED to get my sushi fix that day.

I'd have to say okra for me. I didn't like it at all then had some deep fried and came to like it. Haven't tried it stewed but I do add it to my veggie soups. One thing I would like to like would be livers. I've tried and tried and just can't seem to swallow. It just clogs in my throat. I think it may be a texture issue.
