Ottakee Posted November 11, 2011 Share Posted November 11, 2011 I was sitting her eating my lunch and talking to my mom on the phone when she said my lunch sounded good. Now, this is NOTHING that she would have EVER served. She won't even eat it. I had a baby spring mix salad with crunchies and feta cheese topped with ranch and broccoli cheese soup with extra extra broccoli. Growing up our 3 veggies were green beans, peas, and corn. Possibly very very rarely tomatoes, cucumber, or carrots---but that was almost always at grandmas. VERY VERY rarely a salad. Cheese consisted of moz. for pizza, colby, and cheese slices. Anything else was too exotic. My mom never enjoyed cooking and had about 6-10 meals that she made on a rotating basis. Things like goulash, pea soup, chili, pig in the blankets, a roast, hamburgers, and chicken. Maybe a meat loaf occ. or some ham but never fish (other than the occ. fish stick). We all made it to adulthood. Now though, I will eat most anything and love different things--feta cheese, artichokes, different fish, almost any veggie, etc. Anyone else grow up with a more limited diet and then love lots of other foods as an adult?
