Writer's Block: Eat, Drink, Be Merry

Thanksgiving is almost here in the U.S., heralding the start of the holiday season and the first of many meals where you might be confronted with a traditional dish that you happen to find disgusting. What holiday food do you hate to see on the table?


Salads. Rabbit food in general. Salad dressings both make me violently ill and taste horrible. Raw vegetables are hard to chew, taste bad and leave no room in my stomach for real food that has some calories. Very few people seem to enjoy them without anything on them, but there isn't anything in the stuff people put on them that I find remotely palatable because it's all vinegar based and sour, which will turn my stomach.

It took me a while to think about it because I haven't had that served at a holiday since I was adult. If I eat at a friend's I just say "no thanks" and don't make a big deal of it, because other people are enjoying it. There are usually so many appetizers and things that it's more for whoever likes it. In restaurants I tell them to hold it or substitute it because I hate wasting food.

Love Veggies!
I'll eat your salad! And your vegetarian quiche, potatoes, stuffing only if it's prepared from a bag (Stove Top has chicken and beef stock in it) and gravy - only the pepper kind without chicken stock in it.

I'm like you Robert - I have to pick and choose what I eat carefully, or I won't be able to enjoy the conversation after the meal. I always manage to get enough to eat though! Oh - love the pumpkin pie too! This year I'm serving my family the traditional turkey, and I made a turnip greens and onions quiche for myself!

Mmmm more for me! The stuffing is out of your category though, since Karl makes it with giblet gravy and bits of meat in.

I eat all rabbit food without any added condiments.

hehe you enjoy it, more of the good stuff for me. I have trouble managing to chew the rabbit food but it leaves me stuffed and starved at the same time.
