O is for OMG Olives!

I’ve had food on the brain lately. Must be because I have really been unable to eat anything except bread products. I’ve been living on bagels & soft pretzels, albeit last night I had mashed potatoes. Having some stomach issues. Hopefully getting them sorted out with all these visits to the docs & specialist.

What this post is really about is: OLIVES.
I do not know whose bright idea it was to eat these but they should be shot.
Don’t get me wrong, I love me some EVOO but an actual olive. Ew, patooey.
I wouldn’t force feed those to my enemy.

They are just so bitter. Then you have that little pimento doohickey if you are eating the green ones. Ick! As for the black olives that are loved by our local diners you can keep those too.

I have never tasted anything worse than an olive. That includes watermelon & if you read my last entry you will know I am not found of watermelon.

For some unknown reason these olives love to show up in pasta salads for the summer. Almost every single recipe I find has those in it. Yes I know I can leave them out but come on! Can’t we find something else to put in ‘cept the olive? Does it even have nutritional value?

I think I am just exasperated with the whole food thing lately.

Tell me what food to you despise?

I LOVE Olives! I'll eat them right out of the jar! {I ate a large jar a day of the green ones when I was pregnant with my 2nd daughter. juice and all...}

The only true food I despise is liver. Ewwww.... or chitlins.. Or pig's feet, nose, ears... And hummus. That just sounds nasty.
