OK. I have often had peach flavored drinks, candy, ice cream or a number of other things but I have never just eaten a peach. They gross me out. They are hairy! Who in the world would want to eat a really hairy piece of food? Last night Dusty and our neighbors Marcie and Trent had me try a peach. I didn't just bite into it though. Trent peeled it and chopped it up for me. And guess what, I LOVED it! It was so good. I ate the whole bowl. I even wanted more. It was amazing. They bought them from a farmers market so it was grown locally--they tell me store bought peaches suck.
Dusty always tells me that I am deprived or just weird because there are A LOT of fruits and veggies that I have never eaten before. A few weeks ago I tried my first cherry and I liked it. I have never had a plum, pear, apricot, cantaloupe, honey dew melon---I just had a frozen mango the other day....
I don't think that it's weird that I haven't tried those things. When I was growing up I just stuck to the tried and true things that I liked like apples, oranges and sometimes bananas. (For some reason I went through like a 14 year stint to where I hated bananas, but I am eating them a lot now....) I love kiwi, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries (yummy!) and a lot of other fruit.
Does anyone else have a fruit and veggie thing to where you haven't tried or just don't like stuff that other people think is "normal"?
