#MicroblogMondays 118: The Newly Not Gross
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
I am terrible at trying new foods when it is on someone else’s timetable, but I am actually decent at giving things a try on my own. Take, for instance, Brussels sprouts. Did not want to try them any time other people asked me to try them over the years, but one day (well into adulthood) I decided I wanted to taste them, and now they’re one of my favourite things.
The same thing is happening with Tofurkey.
I am usually not drawn to fake meat, mostly because I am grossed out by real meat. Why would I want to eat a fake version of something I find revolting in its real form? It took me a long time to come around to veggie burgers or ersatz chicken patties, and they’re still not my favourite things, but I’ve never tried Tofurkey. The idea of it is unappetizing.
Yet I am suddenly interested in the idea of Tofurkey, and now just need to whip up the stuffing and vegetarian gravy to make a meal out of trying it.
Have you ever changed your mind on trying something you said you would never, ever eat?
