Oh, and my mother making spaghetti using ketchup as the sauce (the Japanese version).

My Irish grandmother made "Irish spaghetti" with a can of tomato soup as the sauce.

Eggplant and pickled beets. How either are considered to be food is beyond me.

My mom and I were talking about this last night. She did apologize and asked why she made us eat foods we disliked. I answered that my stepfather was a control freak and that both of them were children during the Great Depression. She also asked if I remembered eating deer liver. I do remember eating rabbit, venison, bear, elk, duck, hooligans and morel mushrooms as they were local to hunt and pick. I didn’t mind those at the The, even liked the duck. Now, I am a vegetarian.

pickled beets; always a favorite of mine: eggplant should stay in ground where it started.

XPLorer48: for those growing up before the 1960s we all remember to being forced to eat what was served. I don't think it had much to do with a controlling parent, we were just taught to eat what was served to us. Maybe it did have t do with growing up during the depression. Regardless, most of us have healthy appetites today and are not nearly as picky as those born after 1980 or so I am amazed at how picky one of our granddaughter's is and her hubby is worse, as are her kids.

My mom used to serve liver and onions once a week because “it’s good for you!” I hated it then hate it now. Although I like chicken liver, and I love smoked liverwurst. Could be the fact that she fried the liver in butter or crisco to within an inch of it’s life.

Also hated scrambled eggs. My mom used to serve that for dinner occasionally. I remember when I was very young having quite a tantrum about it and screaming “I HAAATE SCRAMBLED EGGS!!!” Well, being the youngest and the only girl, my two older brothers had a field day laughing about that. They teased me for years about HATING SCRAMBLED EGGS. Not sure why, but that really bothered me.....probably more than the meal itself!

I used to detest liver and onions. Always. About 10 years ago I went out to a cafeteria style place to eat. Friend would get liver and onions, green beans, mashed potatoes. Finally decided I'd try it. Friend told me to put ketchup on the liver. I did. It was delicious. Something about the flavor of the ketchup with the liver and onions made it go from inedible to delicious. Seriously.

Tuna casserole. In fact, tuna continues to be something I don't want to eat - unless it's raw in sashimi or sushi, or a tuna steak very slightly seared.

I wouldn't eat liver as a kid. Now I rather like it as long as its medium rare.
