There aren’t a lot of foods that I don’t like. For as long as I can remember, mushrooms have been my biggest offender. “They taste like dirt.” “It’s like eating styrofoam.” These were the reasons I often uttered. But lately, I am singing a different tune. I’ve let them slip into certain dishes I eat at restaurants. I’ve stopped hunting for the offending bits to separate them out for my husband to eat.

Then finally last week, it happened. I actually bought some mushrooms and sauteed them in butter on my own. I loved it! I’ve since eaten mushrooms 3 times. People, I am a reformed mushroom-hater.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again. I am all for having preferences where food is concerned, but hating certain kinds of food and refusing to try them different ways is just silly. There isn’t much out there that I won’t eat and enjoy if it is well-prepared. This is just one more food I have to love, and I will keep trying more, cause I love food and I don’t want to miss out.
