I was a vegetable kid when I was little. I loved salad, broccoli, cauliflower--you name it, I would eat it all...unless it was peas. It didn't matter how they were cooked or what they were in, I couldn't stand them. When I met Sweet Husband and discovered he didn't like peas either, it was a match made in heaven. We solemnly vowed we'd never eat peas, serve peas, or make any future kid we might have eat peas.
Until about 2 weeks ago. At someone's prompting, I screwed up my courage and bit into a fat, raw sugar snap pea-pod. It was incredible--sweet, crunchy, juicy. And now I'm afraid I'm going to wear out my welcome with one of my community garden neighbors (who in my defense, did tell me to feel free to pick a few every now and then) because I'm craving them all the time!
So, for this week's poll:
Name a food that you hated when you were a child that you can't live without now. How did you first learn that you liked it?
Comment and discuss.
