Mouths Wide Shut (Unless the tedium overwhelms you. Then you are allowed to yawn.) A culinary Q & A from the people who brought you (yawn) all those other great prompts …
Are you a picky eater?
Share some of your favorite food quirks with us (the more exotic, the better!).
I don’t think I have any exotic food quirks.
There are a few foods I don’t like. Olives. Milk. I will eat eggs, but only if they are made a particular way. Otherwise, I’ll eat most food. Hardly any red meat … less and less as time goes on. It’s a combination of it not agreeing with my digestion and a guilty conscience about how horribly meat animals are abused. It’s hard to sanction such cruelty when there are other sources of nourishment available.
I once tried escargot (snails) and while they tasted okay, the texture was a bummer. Also, alligator and crocodile as food give me pause. They do NOT taste like chicken. They taste more like squid. And every time I nibbled on a piece, I got a distinct “man bites dog” flash. It just didn’t work for me.
Garry and I have quietly stopped consuming pig products. Pork has gone and not reappeared. Bacon, included.
Omnivores: what’s the one thing you won’t eat?
I think I covered that. I love vegetables and fruit, but won’t touch anything I suspect has been genetically modified. My passion for sweets is long past, though I remember fondly orgies of chocolate. I like most fish, especially shellfish … but have to be careful of the cholesterol.
And no furry friends. No dogs, horses, kitties. These are pals, not dinner.
This is dull stuff, isn’t it? Like a “share your world,” but without the quirky humor. Please feel free to vote with a yawn.
Since the Daily Prompt is Deadly Dull today, I’ll include a few nice pictures of autumn in New England. I took them yesterday at the dam and by our home.
I am of the opinion that anyone who cannot take a good picture in New England during peak foliage should give up all forms of photography.
It gets so incredibly photogenic around here, that you can just about aim your camera anywhere and what comes out is gorgeous. Right?
