Iceberb Lettuce, Raw Onions, and Grapefruit

I realize that my opinions don't matter much except when they pertain to me and my blog. With that said, I had to opportunity to partake in a dinner which I did not have to cook. That is always a plus. Since it was a warm evening, and salad was on the menu, I was happy.

Had the menu consisted of stuffed bell peppers and brussel sprouts I would have opted out and brought my own PB & J.

The lovely salad was of the taco variety, complete with cheese, seasoned ground beef, and crushed corn chips. What came next made me rethink the P B & J. The ingredients sat on a bed of iceberg lettuce, white in color, and all things non-green and nutritious. I am not a fan of iceberg lettuce.

A side option to the salad was raw onions. I am also not a fan of raw onions. Cook them in a nice saute or coat them in batter and deep fry them, and I can eat bowls full.

I also deeply dislike grapefruit. Who had the idea that a bitter citrus fruit, which requires gobs of sugar in order to become palatable, was a great fruity treat? Why not opt for the cousin, Mr. Navel Orange, and sideline the scoops of sugar?

I also dislike tomatoes, all pepper varieties, and cauliflower. I like the basics, green beans, carrot, and celery, just to name a few.

If you ever invite me over for dinner and serve salad, I'll eat the iceberg lettuce, but will eat my way around the peppers, raw onions, and tomatoes and, 1000 island dressing.

What fruits and veggies do you dislike?

Well, I hate to tell ya this, but I love grapefruit, no sugar and raw onions and brussel sprouts and chicken livers. No kidding. I do. How very weird, I know. I know it.

I eat eggplant every Tuesday night- faithfully. I have no idea what is wrong with me. None.

Enjoy your posts, Linda and your book!
