Sunday Five - Food Preferences


There are a lot of question lists floating around on Facebook these days, ways to keep ourselves entertained in these strange times. One recently had a list of 30 food items and asked if you eat them or not.  Most people rejected about half of the options.  My answer was I had tried 29 of them, the 30th one (mountain oysters aka bulls testicals) I have not tried, but would. Hence this weeks Sunday five, food prejudices? 

1: Brocoli love it, hate it, or tolerate it? 
2: Mayonnaise love it, hate it, or tolerate it? 
3: Fish love it, hate it, or tolerate it? 
4: Rhubarb love it, hate it, or tolerate it? 
5: Cooked cabbage love it, hate it, or tolerate it? 

My Answers:
1: Brocoli love it, hate it, or tolerate it? I usually tolerate it, it often over cooked and stinky. 
2: Mayonnaise love it, hate it, or tolerate it? Love it, homemade with extra lemon is amazing. 
3: Fish love it, hate it, or tolerate it? Love it. 
4: Rhubarb love it, hate it, or tolerate it? Love it. 
5: Cooked cabbage love it, hate it, or tolerate it?  It has to be cooked right, sauteed in butter, not boiled for me to like it.  

Please share your answers in the comments.

    1. My father wouldn't be in the same room with cooked cabbage, but then his mother boiled it until it stank like an angry wet skunk.

  7. I love all those foods, especially rhubarb. I've tried to grow my own rhubarb twice, unsuccessfully, so I have to raid a neighbour's back garden to get my spring tonic of stewed rhubarb.

  8. 1. Broccoli, used to love it. Now just tolerate.
    2. Mayo, yes Virginia, I love it!
    3. Fish, loathe so very much, except canned tuna, shrimp and scallops.
    4. Rhubarb, Ru Paul's cousin? Hate it!
    5. Cabbage love it in all of its forms except sauerkraut. Brussel sprouts, despite how they look, aren't members of the cabbage family are they? If so, add them to the loathe list.
