There are some fears/notions about food that stay with us over the years and we just cant seem to shake them off. I encountered two such funny food-related incidents today.
Take me for instance:- I cant eat any vegetable that's cut into large pieces. It mortally scares me. The veggies have to be small enough for me to be able to eat them. This is a problem mostly with Broccoli and Cauliflower. I absolutely love broccoli - but since it usually comes in huge sizes, I skip eating it till I find a piece small enough. I'm strange - I know :P
So this issue surfaced today at the cafe at work. A few coworkers and I were standing in the panini line and the only veggie option had huuuge slices of eggplant in it. One look at it, and I shrunk back! I ended up eating soup and salad instead...ahem!!
The lady at Cafe Forant:- I had dinner with a buddy of mine today and we then strolled into this really cute basement cafe for dessert and java. It was run by a very adorable lady who baked and cooked everything in that store (and her dog Chula was amazing!). My eyes fell on some delicious oatmeal-cranberry cookies. They were heavenly....yum yum! :) I asked her why not the regular oatmeal-raisin? She said that when she was a kid, she had assumed that the raisins were actually chocolate chips. When she found out the truth, she could never bring herself to eat oatmeal-raisin cookies ever again!! She was heartbroken...so she resorted to making oatmeal cookies cranberries instead....good for me eh? haha.
So what are your food fears? :-)
