I couldn't think of anything until I started reading the replies and I have to agree with liver. I remember trying it and hating it; thankfully we weren't forced to eat it. I hated fried fish on Fridays during Lent. I think that's what made me atheist. haha
My mom also thinks a salad is iceberg lettuce w/tomatoes. It's a sad salad.

"Starving children would be happy to have that" - the Mom in A Christmas Story.

But honestly, it's true. We are incredibly spoiled. Kids complain and complain about good food they're given in the US. I have a recipe called "Miracle Dinner" written by a mom because all 4 of her kids would eat it without complaining. And yes, it is delicious, and anyone would eat it without complaining. But still.

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese in the box, add something or other, I don't know what, and mix it up.....2-3 times/week we had that. Even fresh made macaroni & cheese I can't eat, now.

My mom was a good cook and made everything from scratch, including bread. I really can't think of anything she made that I didn't like.

We also liked golabki (stuffed cabbage) but as younger kids we'd peel off the cabbage and only eat the meat/rice smothered in ketchup. As an adult I like the cabbage as well but my own kids peel off the cabbage and only eat the meat/rice.

On the other side, my mother loved liver and onions and pickled pig's feet, which she cooked for herself and ate alone since none of the men in family would touch them. I despise the taste and texture of fried liver and ate only once or twice. Pig's feet I could not get past the concept stage.
We used to have the potato grating group event, too. Shredded potatoes would not do. She got the recipe from one of the Eastern European women in the neighborhood and followed it to a T. I was little, so I didn't have to grate onion--thankfully.

Anything with peas in it.

I threw-up peas & turkey casserole at the table and Mommy bopped me, LOL.

I didn't have to tab down far to see the L&O thing mentioned.


In my Roman Catholic household it was fish on Fridays. But I never could eat anything that swims in water or crawls in muck. No thanks! Ugh! On Friday I was tossed a P&J sandwich (in disgust) at dinner.


[btw...turns out I'm allergic to seafood. I've been hauled off to the ER twice gasping for breath - both times a "chicken salad sandwich" that was mislabeled (it was tuna salad).]


I remember when they cancelled that "no meat on Friday" thing - it was March, 1964. It was a happy day.

Oh yes. I swallowed each piece whole. It would have been so much easier to flip them over as you said. She told me that my eggs would be like eating shoe leather. Well, better than slimy goo.

liver and onions, ick.

Hated salmon patties when I was a kid, love them now


My Mom ordered fast food a lot so we didn't have a lot of sit down meals. I hated most of them, but especially kentucky Fried Chicken. Is it any wonder why I have avoided all fast food restaurants for a decade now?
