There are two foods that I have come to appreciate as I grow older. Actually, if you knew me when I was a kid, you would realize that this list is, in reality, quite LONG– I didn’t like ANYTHING. I was probably the world’s pickiest eater. There are pictures of me eating a PB sandwich at Tess’s 5 year old Chuckie Cheese Party. Yeah, I didn’t like pizza. Or yogurt. Or jam (notice I said “PB” sandwich, not “PBJ”!). Or pancakes. Or hamburger buns. Or burgers. Or mint-anything. But I did like Mac and Cheese (surprised, anyone?).
Anyways, back to two foods that I’ve come to appreciate, let’s say, in my 20’s. First of all, I just LOVE eating sliced tomatoes (fresh and un-cooked, of course). Greece, in particular, did this to me– their fresh fruits and veggies are soooo mouth-watering tasty, that you’d be hard pressed not to love eating any of them raw, by themselves, au naturale. As much of a disappointment all tomatoes have been in comparison, I still love eating them.
The second food, is cucumber. I know, what’s with all the fresh produce?? Doesn’t matter, that’s off topic. Once again, I’ve really come to love eating these little guys, especially in a cold Thai peanut salad. Something about crunchy mixed with wholesome sweetness…
What off-the-wall foods has everyone else come to appreciate?
