Happy Friday! Well the end of the week is here and I was debating on what to talk about today. I tossed around a couple of dessert ideas with some strawberries and realized that I haven’t written a fun post in a long time. Now my idea of fun may not be the same as yours but lets give it a try. I am here in Virginia prepping for a conference and thought I would do a re post and get some more chatter going from a few years ago.
Name one food you hated as a child but LOVE now! Leave a comment and tell me the food. If I get 100 comments on this post – I win a bet with a friend and I hate losing so make sure you tell your answer!
For me it has to be “BEETS”. I was totally against them as a child and never wanted to touch them. I would see my mom making beet preserves and eating them all summer with everything from meat and potatoes to summer hams and roasted beet salad. I wanted to stay as far away from them as humanly possible. Then maybe 5 years ago, I tried mom’s beets and guess what… I loved them! The texture and flavor was sensational and now I cannot get enough of them. I pretty much clean her preserves out when I go over there for dinner. Oh dear – sometimes I wonder about myself.
I am on the road next week but I have rounded up some guest posts for the week. I will be in (what better be) “Sunny” Florida for the week on business but I shall return. I will be fully active with the blog next week so feel free to keep your comments coming.
Now do not forget – I want to know the answer to the question: Name one food you hated as a child but LOVE now!
