Food for thought from one of my favorite bloggers and an amazing woman!
When watching contestants eat strange animal parts or bugs on the cancelled show Fear Factor, it seldom made me flinch. Bear Gryllsboiled a mouse in urine and ate it. I nodded my head and said, “I could do that.”
But hand me a plate of acorn squash with its savory steam rising up to fill my nostrils and I gag.
When I was a kid and my taste buds were all fresh and new, a lot of flavors were too strong for my virginal palette. I’m an adult now. My tongue has gotten around. Years of burning out taste buds by accidentally eating hot peppers, or tasting hot soups and stews still bubbling in the pot, has made them less sensitive. About the only foods I won’t eat is something that tastes spoiled….or squash.
