THE WORST THINGS I EVER ATE
I went to a Polish holiday party once. The food was delicious. I simply love pieroges. It all came to a crashing halt when these things came out though. Galareta which pretty much just translates to gelatin. It's exactly what it looks like: chicken noodle soup in a jello mould. As a child I had a very open mind about food and would even combine stuff together in an imaginative way, but my tiny mind couldn't handle the fusion of these two child hood favourites. I got about two bites in, smiled and politely excused myself. It doesn't help that they look like biodegradable breast implants. As my sister said "Push-up Bra: Now with more MSG!"
I know I posted about this before, but it needed to go on the list. I like my food dead....and not moving. Mind you this dish was dead, but for some reason the little fish flakes on top kept moving....for like 30 minutes....because we didn't want to eat it....because it was dancing fish flakes. I think it was the combination of the movement and the idea that I was eating the stuff I used to sprinkle in the aquarium (at least that's what it looked like).
I went to a party and my friend had just got a new deep fryer. He was deep frying EVERYTHING. I sampled a couple of things that were quite tasty and finally got brave enough to sample this monstrocity. You know what tastes worse than regular spam? Warm greasy battered SPAM.
I took one bite and you know what song went through my head?
Meow, meow, meow, meow, Meow meow, meow meow, Meow, Meow, Meow, Meow, Meow, meow, meow, meow.
Lots of people in the health food industry will rave about the health benefits of this fruit but I always look at things as a cost to benefit ratio. In this case eating something that smells like sweaty feet is not worth some vitamins and fibre I can get from a non sweaty feet fruit.
