Holiday food I dislike
Today’s prompt is a short one! I don’t like talking much about holiday food I dislike.
What food do you always reject on the holiday table? Why?
People might think I’m weird, but I can’t stand green bean casseroles! I never have! I’m not a huge fan of green beans to begin with, so an entire casserole sounds incredibly unappetizing. It’s just not my thing.
I also reject cold ham, but I talked about that a couple days ago. Ham needs to be warm for me to eat it!
Mashed potatoes weren’t my thing growing up. My mom would throw a potato in the oven for me, so I’d eat a delicious baked potato instead. I do enjoy mashed potatoes more as an adult, but as a kid? Nope.
I dislike a couple food items that other people commonly like. I’ve never liked pasta – the texture of noodles doesn’t agree with me. I’m also not a fan of cheese – I know, stop the presses! People always give me the side eye when I tell them of my dislike of cheese. I love beer, so that counteracts me dislike of cheese, in my mind. I also don’t like sour cream, avocados, or tomatoes, so Mexican food is pretty much a no for me.
These days, I’m much less of a picky eater as I was 6 or 7 years ago. I’m happy about that, at least, but I’ll never eat pasta willingly. Or green bean casseroles.
