When is the last time you ate something you’ve never had before. If you are like most people, it’s been a while. Have you ever gotten it in your head that you don’t like something even though you’ve never tried it or had a bad experience with it a long time ago? Guilty as charged. I’m the worst for this, but trying to get better. It’s really hard to expect my kids to try new things when I am so unwilling to do so. With this new mission in mind, I am trying curry today for the 2nd time ever. The first time was probably 15 years ago. I just remember my friend comparing the smell of it to feet and that was all it took. I have not tried it since. I’m actually excited to cook with it tonight and give it another chance. This will be a 2 part blog. I will return after dinner to let you know how my curry experience went. In the meantime, think of something new you would like to try. What weird hang-ups do you have about certain foods? Do you wonder what you might be missing out on?
Part 2: I’m back. Mmmmm – that was pretty good!!! Everyone except Lily really liked it. Now why in the world have I waited 15 years to try cooking with curry. Pick one new food to try this week. I want to hear all about it. I’ll post it on my blog with your permission. I also want to hear what has kept you from trying it before. Next on my list is ….. fennel. I’ll let you know how it goes.
