My Least Favorite Foods...

There are two foods I can list that I can NOT stand. However, these two foods I do like if they are prepared with something, just not by themselves.

First up....



And not to be dramatic or anything but seriously, as this picture sits here on my screen, it's grossing me out. YUK! Here's why....


One, I've never liked mayonnaise anyways, just because it tastes gross. I do like it in potato salad or deviled eggs but by itself on a sandwich or on artichokes.....NO WAY! Nasty!!

Reason # 2, once my daughter had lice and for the life of me, we could not get rid of it. We tried everything (so we thought) but then we were told that mayonnaise works cause it's supposed to smoother the lice and since we were coming up on 3 months of this lice problem, I was willing to try everything! So, I put the mayonnaise in my daughters hair and since I have lots of hair and wanted to take precaustionary measures, I had my husband put it in my hair. Put the shower caps on our heads (I'm getting nauscious talking about this...lol), and went to bed. Next morning we took the caps off and OH. MY. GOSH!!! The stench it created was beYOND repulsive! I kept gagging as I was washing it out with shampoo. (GAG!) Yeah, not a fan of Mayo!




Side note: The mayonnaise didn't help.



Next up...which is just as bad.....




That's right, Tomatoes!



Funny thing is, I used to like them when I was a child. My mom would make tacos and burritos and I would always put some refried beans as the side, add some cheese and put one chunk of a tomato right on top...just like a cherry. Loved it!



Another time, my family went out to dinner while visiting my grandma and at the restaurant, I had bitten into a cherry tomato and it splattered all over. It was a funny moment. I loved them.



Then just one day, out of the blue...



I stopped liking them. Never have I liked them since. However, I do like salsa (non-chucky, of course!) or ketchup, and tomato sauce. Again, just not by itself.



In fact...



Once at a local pizza place, my husband and I got a pizza and the salad bar. As I was choosing my toppings for my salad, I noticed they had some extra sides like potato salad, pasta salad and then some cherry parfait. I had decided to add a little cherry parfait to my plate. When I sat down and started eating the parfait, I thought I was going to get sick. I started gagging and my husband was laughing at the look on my face. That's when I had realized that a tomato had gotten mixed in with the parfait. I literally thought I was going to throw up!



Needless to say, I never get that with my salad anymore.

Ok, so I'm sitting here reading your post and eating some veggies with dip - made with mayo. Not a good choice! LOL! And as a kid, I hated tomatoes.....now? Love them....except cooked!

I'm not really a mayo fan, but not that grossed out by it. I will say, there are some things that don't taste right without it!

Tomatoes...I'm ambivalent toward. On a sandwich or in a salad is fine, but I don't just grab a few and snack on them!

Cringing at the mayo in the hair experience. YUK!! Does your daughter like mayo? Just wondering.

I love a good FRESH tomato on a sandwich, but not the wannabee tomatoes in stores. My sister agrees with you - she hates them too!

The mayo thing might have ruined that forever for me ... eww! And to have it not work! Torture!
