It seems I upset a few people with my post about bad/good parenting and evil, giant multinationals a few weeks back.
A couple were miffed about what I had to say about takeaway food, but that wasn’t the issue.
I inadvertently outraged a few with my open distaste about the fungus that graces your unclean shower tiles. Or [excuse me a moment, whilst I try not to vomit] people’s breakfast plates.
Didn’t mean to upset you … but, sorry, tinea. I can’t get my mind beyond that.
Really, I don’t have any problem with you eating them, if that’s what you desire. I prefer you don’t do it in front of me, but I won’t judge or discriminate against you because of it.
One of my best friends is a mushroom consumer. This also has it’s advantages … she eats my mushrooms, I get her bacon.
It did get me thinking though, about the variety of foods disliked within a community. It’s not just bathroom fungus I have a distaste for. No, not at all. There are other foods. My top five would have to be:
- mushrooms (obviously)
- Brussel’s sprouts (why???? What is their point?)
- blue cheeses
- Chicken (done most ways, except, possibly, KF’d)
- Feta & goats’ cheeses
- Dark chocolate (70% cocoa and above) (also chocolate teddy bear biscuits)
So tell me, I’d love to hear it … what are your 5 least enjoyed (or repellent) foods, and your top 5 favourites.
Also, if someone could whip me up a couple of courses using that second list of mine and bring it round, that’d be awesome! Thanks!
