|You may wonder why this appears to be in a cat food bowl. |
Well, everyone in this household had to do their part before
this food got wasted--including Wee Watson, the house mascot
and Feline Companion. He didn't like it either.
I gamely tried to use up the rest by making a sandwich to take to work, but bottom line is: I just don't really like salmon. I know it's good for me, and I try to eat it sometimes, but I really don't like the taste. I'm officially going to stop trying now.
Not to make this into a rant, but has anyone else ever noticed that there seem to be some foods that you're not allowed to dislike? I grew up a pretty picky eater, so I got used to people getting frustrated when I would refuse to try things. But now I've grown up and I will try almost anything. However, when I tell people that I don't like certain foods, like shrimp, for example, people seem to get offended. "Oh, you must not have had good shrimp. You should really try it again." Recently bf and I were talking about lobster and I said that I don't think I like it. "Well how many times have you had it? Where did you eat it?"
My answer: "Maine, which is where you go for lobster."
Does this happen to anyone else? Anyway, the reason I bring it up is that the same thing has happened occasionally with salmon, which is why I've eaten it so damn many times. I feel like there's a failure to enjoy salmon on my part--I'm just not trying hard enough, or I haven't had the right salmon.
Let the record show: I do not care for parsnips, salmon, shrimp or steak (though I have to admit, I've never eaten steak, but I don't care for any other beef I've ever tried, so why would I waste my money on steak?). That means there's just more for everyone else.
