  • LIVER! Every time my parents made it they made me eat it. Made me gag then and it makes me gag now. I hate the taste. I hate the texture. Doesn't matter what condiments are put on it, how many seasonings-I can still taste that nasty sh*t!!! EEEW!

  • Spare ribs and rutabaga's - I LOVE it but I have just never made it at home!
    Other than that I can't really think of anything. Our family was pretty boring in the food department. WE eat MORE different food now than I did as a kid. As soon as I could use the stove I was making new foods for my parents. lol.
