Food That You Hated As A Child But Love Now!

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!

Take care
