I think I might like mushrooms - gasp!

Friday, February 25, 2011

All of my life I have hated mushrooms. Blech!! emoticon I was an EXTREMELY picky eater as a child. I am a lot better as an adult, but still have a lot of hang-ups. One of these hang-ups has been mushrooms. I have never bought them. Never order anything at a restaurant with mushrooms in it. Fungus = gross. emoticon

However, I LOVE LOVE LOVE hot & sour soup. It has mushrooms in it (I don't know what kind), and I eat the mushrooms. But the soup is so.... well hot. and sour. YUM. that I can't taste the mushrooms.

Last time the Schwan's man came over, I ordered a beef dinner that looked good... not even realizing that it had mushrooms in it.

I've been avoiding it since I noticed it had the mushrooms, but I didn't have anything else for lunch today, so I ate it. It was yummy!!! OMG, do I LIKE mushrooms?!?!

First, Schwans made me like cauliflower, and now mushrooms?!?! Don't tell my mom.... she'll say "I told you so!"

    OMG you totally make me laugh Claudia!! I am glad you can now admit that you like Mushrooms. Just goes to show we should try new things or things we didn't used to like as our taste buds do change!!!

    Haha! You are funny! One of the things I don't like is sweet potatoes, except when they are covered with sugar and marshmallows, but then they're not healthy anymore! It's been years since I've tried them though, maybe I should sneak them in with something I like....

    You are hilarious! I never wanted to eat cheese after I found out all that it is, is mold----but I got over it. Mushrooms are a staple in my diet. Egg white omelette with spinach, fat-free cheese and mushrooms with green chili..........Yummy! I won't tell mom! emoticon

    Ha ha! You're awesome, Claudia! I really think that tastes change over time and we need to keep trying things we KNOW we don't like. Mine is avocado. Hated it all my life until about two years ago. Now, I actually like it!

    Oh, and BTW, Hy-Vee's mushrooms are MUCH better than Fareway's.

    Hey, mushrooms are great! My husband claims to hate them, too but he loves them battered and deep fried! I don't understand it, but he won't admit he likes them. I guess it all depends on how they are prepared?
