    Yeah this thread wasn’t started to talk about fucking mushrooms.

    I’ll eat them when I’m out at a nice dinner if they are in something good, but that is it. Get them out of my face otherwise

    Beets though. Those are delicious

    Some people don't like beets.
    I think they are crazy!

    Morels don't taste like basement, they would definitely be my fungus of choice.

    But beets... Roasted garden beets that came up to golf ball size by late June in a cool wet spring...damn, so sweet you save them for last because it's almost dessert.

    Beets. Meh, if I want to eat something that tastes like dirt, I’d just eat dirt. Radishes, rutabagas and turnips too. Yuck. I’m not a fan of any of them.  I love parsnips, Brussel sprouts, and cabbage though, so go figure.

    Back to tasty things like mushrooms... My wife makes a venison marsala with fresh, foraged chanterelles that is out of this world.

    Mushrooms taste way more like dirt than beets lol

    Then again, most people have never had good beets.

    Matsutakes sliced thin with a little butter and soy or STFU. Mushroom and onion is my preferred pizza topping for an everyday pie.  And I love beets, especially golden beets slowly roasted. But it is true that even the sweetest beets have a little dirt taste. Absolutely.

    Anyone tried Beyond Meat?
    I'm not one for shit that is meant to taste like meat but is vegetarian, in general.  I think it is better to embrace the vegetables for what they are 
    Wife bought some Beyond Burgers and Beyond Sausage
    Cooked up the sausage and..... surprisingly tasty.  It does not have the pork taste of a good sausage but I spiced the fuck out of them, loaded with onions and peppers, and baked.
    Very tasty stuff.  Not sausage, but damned if it didn't taste / feel similar.
    Interested to see what the burgers taste like.

    We bought some burgers a month or so ago but never cooked them. Pretty sure they’ve gone bad by now.

    Yeah if you didn't freeze them they should go in the bin.

    I’m curious about Beyond Meat as well. Been considering picking up some of the burgers.

    Is that seriously sashimi? Or is it supposed to be funny, and is a photo of some kind of geological matter? :lol:

    I wonder if Sprouts are similar to Cilantro, in that they're both either loved or hated...?  I've read about some genetic variant about the soapy herb.

    Those up there (and many others I've seen) look and sound fantastic, but I just can't get past the taste.

    (that's what she said)

    I commented to my wife while we were eating, tonight, how I hated sprouts as a kid.
    Love them now 
    Always have loved cilantro.  Love the smell.

    I hated sprouts, beets and asparagus as a kid. 3 of my favorites now. Won’t accept mushrooms
  • F Me In The BrainF Me In The Brain this knows everybody from other commetsPosts: 16,151
    Live asparagus.  Gotta keep 'em, though.

    Dessert "sushi" my 11 year old and I made tonight for her slumber party ;)

    We made rice krispy treats and flattened them out, stuffed with kiwi and strawberries and then covered them with fruit roll ups.




  • hedonisthedonist standing on the edge of foreverPosts: 19,597
    Your kiddo did a great job!  I'm not a fan of fruit roll-ups, but they're perfect for the "seaweed".
  • F Me In The BrainF Me In The Brain this knows everybody from other commetsPosts: 16,151
    Ha!  So creative.  I'm not sure I would love the taste based on description....but they look great and I'm sure the kids will love them!

    Wow! This thread got buried. Everyone stop eating?  

     Anyways, made this tasty treat. Fresh sauerkraut with freshly made braunschweiger on a slice of pumpernickel.
