Startling discovery

Yesterday I discovered that, despite all previous beliefs to the contrary, Black Cherry Yoghurt is quite nice.

I have been actively avoiding said yogurt for most of my life, but in the spirit of adventure I gave it another chance. I am now wondering what else I think I don't like but actually do. This is my list:

'Foods to try again once reaching adulthood'

1) Chicken supreme. (blueugh, this comes top because I HATED this as a child.I once threw up in a plate of it at infants school. The teacher couldn't tell the difference between the chicken supreme and my vomit so made me eat it, definite child cruelty. This might be a tough one psychologically, but in light of my cherry yoghurt discovery I'm prepared to give it one last chance)

2) Marmite mini cheddars. I like mini cheddars but not the marmite ones. At least I think I don't like them. I might do. Can you still buy them?

3) cauliflower Cheese. God, we used to have this for tea every week. It was the tough green bits I hated the most. Sorry Mum, I can now appreciate you were trying your best to feed a family of 5 healthily and economically, but it was truly gross.

4) Baked beans. Never liked them. dunno why. Avoided at all costs.

5) Liver. It's the texture and the taste. Disgusting. I have actually tried liver again quite recently and it was horrible so I'm not putting myself through any more torture.

I'm not a very fussy eater really; I'll eat most stuff when put in front of me. The only exceptions would be the Chicken supreme and liver. I would refuse those 2 dishes even if I was having dinner with the Queen.

Or maybe I'd make another startling discovery...

I'm totally with you on the cauliflower cheese comment! I still can't face it after having it practically every day as a child... Yuk!

I know. And can you remember the risotto Mum used to make? It was always bright orange and whatever she put in it always tasted the same.

I thought I didn't like risotto at all until I had proper risotto done with the correct rice and without the mystery orange ingredient.

Ha ha! I'd forgotten about that. She seems to have improved her risotto since then - it's actually alright now. You know mum anyway- we never have the same meal twice!

Everyone's allowed a couple of "rather chew tinfoil than eat..." foods. Beyond that is unecessary fuss and nonsense.

Don't bother trying baked beans. Everyone knows they are the devil's work.

Oh dear, another mushrooms tragedy. Like my sister (who believes that mushrooms and slugs share more than a passing textural resemblence), you are missing out on some of the most wonderful culinary experiences.

But quite apart from that, mushrooms are a poor choice to detest: in all the meals I've taken at the palace, her maj has never yet served baked beans. You might not be so lucky with mushrooms - I hear Brenda's partial to the odd Shiitake
