Bad Wrap Foods

My husband has gone out of town and I want to use this time to cook everything delicious that he hates!  So far I have on the list: Brussels sprouts, lima beans, oatmeal, and sauerkraut. (Not all at once)

What is your favorite "bad wrap food"?  What would you cook if you were just cooking to please yourself?

AC, what kind of weirdo doesn't like cornbread?! :o Even my youngest brother, who is the pickiest person I know (who also doesn't like mashed potatoes btw...or any potatoes that aren't deep fried) likes cornbread.  Your husband is crazy.

That's for sure! And cornbread is one of the easiest breads to make, so I don't have that option to whip together some cornbread to complete a meal. Filthy sack.

Hey, I don't like corn bread! It's like sweet sawdust! Maybe I've never had the perfect recipe but I think I could like it since I love it's italian cousin polenta.

Amy, yeah kimchi isn't for everyone, but I agree that putting some strange foods together can make sensory harmony! ( like sauerkraut and salsa) can two rights ever make a wrong?

I just asked P "Why don't you like cornbread?" and he immediately made a disgusted face and said, "I DON'T LIKE THE FLAVOR, I DON'T LIKE THE TEXTURE. It's dry, it's granular." "It's not always dry." "Yes, it is."  .......k, bro

hahaha, so stange! cornbread is one of the joys of life.

Two things J won't eat, almost without exception, are eggplant and bell peppers. I can kind of see it (not as weird of a dislike as TOMATOES or CORNBREAD), but if he's gone for the weekend or something it's EGGPLANT AND PEPPER TIME. Well, sometimes I make that stuff for myself anyway, and just make some stuff he likes.
The first time I made baba ghanouj, he tried it without knowing what it was, and loved it. Some time later I told him it was eggplant. I recently made it again (same recipe), and he wouldn't eat it, then tried a bit, then said he didn't like it. SURE. SURE YOU DON'T.

Why do they do that?!

Anything creamy, and P says: "does this have Vegenaise in it?" No.

The first bite of the AFR horseradish dressing "hmm..has a slight Vegenaise taste. " Babe, there's no Vegenaise in there. "Oh..now that I taste it more, it's good."

::)

That is SO annoying!  You just have to lie to them and reveal the truth after their second helping!  I chop cilantro (his apparent bane) tiny and pass it off as parsley all the time and he loves it yet he is convinced he still hates cilantro.  STUBBORN!

My DH drives me nuts on a regular basis. I make something, he likes it. Then weeks later I make it again and it's "You know I don't like this."
He's another texture freak. If he doesn't like "the way it feels in the mouth" or even if he doesn't like the way it looks, he won't even try it. It could smell gorgeous...he won't touch it.
I'm from a large, poor family; you ate what there was when it was there, or you went hungry, because there weren't going to be leftovers and Mom wouldn't allow "special" dishes. I think some of our picky peoples have just never been really, really hungry and had only one option.

I forgot about onions! I obviously still use onion in most everything, but if P can detect them (taste/texture), he will not like the dish (see: hashbrowns this morning).

Really, we've come a long way because he used think he didn't like most everything.

Exactly!! I kept a general list on my computer of recipes that I've made that he thought were DELICIOUS, and now I started making them again... not so much. WHAT THE HELL
Also, there's that whole flipping back and forth about ingredients. One year he was all "I LOVE sweet potatoes!" Next year I make some "you KNOW I don't like sweet potatoes!" "I swear you did" "You must have remembered wrong or something" "No, it was Thanksgiving, and you had, like, all the sweet potatoes." "Are you sure?" "YES"
But (fortunately?) it happens the other way around too. He used to despise pomegranate, but now I should know that he loves it. MAKE UP YOUR MIND.

But yeah AC, he used to be pickier about things and have a much longer list of things he doesn't like (most of which he probably never tried or tried once....).  I've gradually whittled away at that, but I still can't get him past certain foods.
It's like feeding a kid or something. Well, at least he likes broccoli.

Another thing is brands of things like mayo or marge or whatever. For years it was a local brand. Then he switched to a famous US brand. Now, he alternates. When I buy "the wrong one" he says "I don't like that one." What he means is, "I like to switch around every so often."
Now that he's retired, he gets to pick his own when we go shopping. And I don't have to listen to it anymore.
And people wonder why I never had kids? Who needs another one!

gosh, I do feel lucky.  N will eat almost anything.  Just not a plate of beans (he will now eat beans in chili or beans and rice, which he never used to).  And he does love noochy sauce.....it just doesn't love him.

He'll try everything else - he may not like them, but he'll eat them and then ask me not to cook it again if it's bad.
