My whole life, I've hated mushrooms. No matter how they were prepared, I didn't like them.
But anytime I put a food item in front of my child, I always make them taste it, even if they know they don't like it. Because you never know when that might change.
Well I have to live what I preach, right? So I've always made myself try any mushroom dish that's put in front of me. I still never liked them.
Until one day I did.
I remember the day. My husband and I were out to lunch for our seventh anniversary. I was 30 years old. I ordered a chef salad and it came with raw mushrooms. I tried one, just like I always do.
And to my surprise, I liked it.
Now I can't get enough of those funny little fungi.
My BFF couldn't stand sushi. But she kept at it. A year later, it's one of her favorite foods too. Yum!
The moral of the story is: just because you didn't like it once doesn't mean you will always dislike it.
Do you have anything you like now that you didn't use to?
