The following is a list of foods that, when in something I am eating, ruin it*:
1. Sour cream- Sour cream used to almost make me gag, just at the thought of it. I think it's one of the most disgusting things ever. I hate that it automatically comes on so many things: potato skins, nachos, tacos...YUCK! In my old age, I still detest it, but I'm at least okay if it's near my food.
2. Green peppers- I don't understand liking green peppers. Their taste permeates everything else in the dish! Growing up, I got my dad to change his chili recipe because it had green peppers in it. And people CHOOSE to put them on their pizza? Odd. One time I had a piece of raw green pepper and I could kind of see people liking that, but it was still way too much green peppery taste for me.
3. Mushrooms- I used to think I was okay with mushrooms because my mom used to make this dish with cream of mushroom, but a few years ago I went to eat a regular ol' mushroom and quickly realized I do not like them. I think they should only be put in vegetarians' food. I got shrimp lo mein for dinner and the mushrooms were all over that! YUCK! Huge ones, too. I couldn't ignore them. My trash can is now filled with them. I'm curious about this portabello mushroom thing because don't people eat them like steaks or something? Seems like a steam would be a lot better.
4. Mixed condiments- I am the person who causes the McDonald's line to come to a halt because I order my hamburgers plain. Actually, I haven't had a McDonald's hamburger since I was about 13 so you'll actually have to blame someone else. But do you know why I don't eat those anymore? No, it's not because they're bad for you, it's because they mix ketchup and mustard on them! EWWWWW! One time, my friend Nick got a hot dog at 7-11 and he put everything from the condiment bar on it. I couldn't even look at him while he ate it. It didn't stop me from sleeping with him, though**.
That actually might be it. I'm sure one of my friends who hangs out with me a lot can add to the list, but that's all I can think of right now.
*Or ruin a particular bite if I forget to pick it out.
