Why is it that I can remember every single meal that was prepared that I absolutely loathed? Aren't the bad things supposed to fade from memories? Aren't we supposed to suppress those horrible awful memories?
I can remember so vividly....tuna casserole *GAG* (Anything tuna will make me seriously do a yucky dance and maybe even barf....YES EVEN FRESH TUNA) and don't anyone ever say "You just haven't had it cooked right". No matter how you slice it, dice it, mix it, mash it, grill it or steam it....Tuna. is. nasty! I can remember some sort of like chow mien type junk my mom would make...Ick, I still can see it and still don't like it. Beef stroganoff, fish sticks, just to mention a few.
Ohhh this one will get ya....my dad liked Liver...(now my mom will tell you this is not true and that my brother and I made up this name for liver, but I am telling you....SHE made it up) My mom made liver, my brother and I couldn't read, so she told us it was "Chicken fish" ummm okay...why not, they have dog fish and cat fish and fish fish, why not chicken fish...and we believed her...this ugly black slab of meat on a plate...slimy and so not a delicacy. And once we were able to read....we figured out why we didn't like it....my brother went to the trash pulled out the packaging and read La-ver-e...Li-ver-e.....LIVER!! EWWWWWWWWW It's LIVER....don't eat it!
And isn't it funny how along with all those horrible memories you think of all the yummy's that you remember. And I had a different fav for different times of my life. I still love a good hot dog...okay so not so home made...but it works!!! I will forever remember Lipton Chicken Noodle Soup. Ohhhh YUM! Okay again not home made....but when I am sick, that is the ONLY kind of soup to make!
And I can remember my mom making pork chops and mashed potatoes and kohlrabi's in a cream sauce!! TO. DIE. FOR! That is like a party in your mouth. Now I don't eat pork...or red meat for that matter....but aside from mashed potatoes, which are a comfort food in and of itself, my absolute most favorite thing that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside is kohlrabi's in cream sauce. Because if mom makes them, I know they are just for me! And that is what makes them best!
