Mini-Meme! Food Likes And Dislikes...

Monday we looked forward to having "Cuban Midnight" sandwiches. They are a small sandwich, that traditionally has Thinly sliced roast pork, sliced ham, Swiss cheese, dill pickles, mustard, and mayo- all on a fresh elongated roll, grilled in a panini press(or equivalent device!). By the picture posted, you would swear we had a wonderful sandwich- but that would be wrong! The bread we found was a tasteless garlic roll, too hard and too dry to do the sandwich justice. The pork and ham were actually on the bland side, with the baby Swiss crumbly- because the deli had frozen it at some time in it's life! Oh well, live and learn.... Oh by the way, if you're wondering what grill I use, it's a Cuisinart Griddler! Two sets of grates, heat controls, adjustable for thick sandwiches- it's like a George Foreman Uber Grill!
Today's Meme couldn't be easier! List your three favorite foods, then list three foods you don't ever plan on eating ever again! Explanations are welcome! I'll go first;
1. Chili dogs- once a week, minimum!
2. Grilled cheese sandwich- when nothing sounds good, this does...
3. BB-Qed baby back pork ribs- seasoned, tender, and sauced!

1. Brussels Sprouts- smells worse than they taste( to me!)
2. Cream of Wheat- a non-event, with a nasty texture!
3. Peas- I will eat pea pods any day, but even my dogs won't eat peas....

Ooooh am I first?

Foods I like
1. Lamb chops - I could eat them every day.
2. Fillet Steak - I could eat it every day, but that would be difficult if I was having lamb chops every day!
3. Jersey Royal potatoes I could eat them every day with Lamb chops or fillet steak!

Food I don't like
1. Butter Beans - pass me a sick bag.
2. Sago - pass me a sick bag.
3. Actually those are the only two foods I don't like.

Dana said...


1. Broasted Chicken - specifically from the local "certified" joint that is only open between March and November!

2. Steak Fries - dipped in Mayo

3. Peanut Butter Toast - every weekend morning!


1. Tapioca Pudding - who puts frog eggs in pudding??

2. Jell-O salads - again, adding chunks, especially to a dessert is just wrong!

3. Edamame - generally I like soy products (Tofu - YUM), but there is something about edamam that makes me want to hurl.

buffalodickdy said...

Ake- I like those meats too, and I'll look up Jersey Royals...
leighann- Love Alfredo anything! I literally love all the foods you hate!
DogB- With you on the likes, but oddly I like tomato anything-except fresh tomatoes!
dana- Used to see "broasted chicken" signs everywhere- but not anymore... I'll have to look up edamame to be able to hate it!
InsaneM- With you on the likes, but I'll have to eat your mushrooms for you...
Beth- Your dislikes are pretty right on...
TanyaK- I'll eat your whole list- except for that whole wheat pasta- nasty stuff!

Urban Vegan said...

1. Pasta, pasta, pasta
2. Horizon's grilled seitan
3. Avocado maki with scallions and sesame seeds

Foods I don't like (besides animal products, which I obviously don't consume or like)
1. Beer. I know it's not a food, but it's the only thing I can think of that I have tried to acquire a taste for but really can't.
2. Acai. I know it's a super food and is so good for you, but I just don't really like the texture unless it's disguised in a smoothie
3. I can't think of anything else. I honestly like most foods.

buffalodickdy said...

UrbanV- I kind of figured on your dislikes! My wife has gotten so she will drink a beer about twice a year- max!

Honey said...

LOVE cream of wheat with a pat of goat butter and sprinkles of sugar and cinnamon. It's warm, hearty, comfort food. And roasted brussels sprouts? Drizzle them with olive oil, dash them with salt, pepper and garlic powder, bake, VOILA, even my KIDS eat them!!!

Claudia said...

You know what is nice? When you actually sign in and comment using the RIGHT email. Honey=Claudia

TavoLini said... brussels sprouts???

Lini´s likes:
1. Pizza--always
2. Broccoli--raw, cooked, chinese, casserole, on pizza--its always good
3. Pineapple--again, give it to me any way you can

1. melons--all types. too sweet--gross
2. papaya--so pretty, yet so...mushy
3. sweet desert type breads--I don~t like any of them.

and I have to agree with you about the grilled cheese!

buffalodickdy said...

Honey- does Claudia know we're seeing each other?
Claudia- Now I have to deal with split personalities, too? :)
Lini- The "P" words worked for me- but I'll eat broccoli only if it's covered in cheese sauce! On dislikes- guess what is in the oven right now? Cranberry/apricot, orange bread!

Roger said...

Steak, pizza,tacos food I hate raw onions, McDonals, kohlrabi's.

Odat said...

I like that griller....maybe I'll get one.....
I can't believe you don't like Cream of Wheat!!!

1) Making and eating meatballs in Italian gravy...(with pasta of course or on a hero)
2) Fresh mozzerella (and I mean just made and still warm) and roasted peppers (on Italian Bread with vinegar and oil and garlic)
3) Humus.

Won't eat ever again:
1) Liver
2) anything sushi
3) I can't think of anything else.


Bina said...

1. I can't make a list and not include popcorn. I have had popcorn at least five times a week since I can remember!
2. Blackened Salmon. I could eat it every single day!
3. Fried chicken, as long as it's done right!

1. HATE peas. YUK!
2. Oysters. Feels like someone hawked a loogie in my mouth.
3. Lobster. I have tried it three different times, and all times had to spit it out.

Casdok said...

I love anything with cheese chilli or lots of garlic.
And i dont like mushrooms or processed food. Blah!

Real Live Lesbian said...

My girl's Cherry BBQ Ribs
Whole Wheat Carrot Cake
Michigan cherries...any color

No ways:
Tofu...I don't care how you season it. Nastee!!
Turnip greens
Liver or any organ meats

Anonymous said...

Oh I so love the sprouts! Very good with vinegar sprinkled over them.


buffalodickdy said...

rog- I don't like raw onions much either- cooked is OK!
odat- That grill is the one you want! Very versatile and pretty easy to clean! I'll eat the liver for you- if it's calf's liver sauteed with bacon and onions...
bina- If you ate popcorn 5 times a week the way I make it- you'd weigh 400lbs.! Butter, butter, and more butter...
Yaaay! Somebody else that hates peas!
casdok- I like your likes!
R.L.L.- Now I have to eat more liver! Whole wheat anything is not my favorite flavor...
PrePon- Consider my share of sprouts all yours...

Jeff B said...

The in crowd:
1. Chicken Fried Steak - The only thing that needs to be on a breakfast menu
2. Potatoes - Baked, mashed, fried, anyway you fix 'em I'll eat 'em.
3. First BBQ'd steak of the summer.

The gag me with a pitch fork crowd
1. Brussel Sprouts- I feel your pain Buff. It's like taking all the nasty from a cabbage and compressing it down into one little bite.
2. Creamed Spinach - The only vegetable my mother would let me get away with not eating. It was either that or clean-up the carpet after I yacked it back up later
3. Tripe - Smelling it cooking is enough to may me leave the building (maybe permantely!)

Mona said...

Today I am filled upto here ( holds hand horizontally at the neck) & don't feel inclined to even mention food..

I just came to give you a (((HUGE HUG))!!

buffalodickdy said...

jeff- my wife and you are probably potato addicts... Spinach is so good for you, I couldn't possibly consider eating it!
mona- I 'll take a big hug from you anyday!

Finn said...

1. Mac n' Cheese
2. Brie, Apples and Almonds on Baguette
3. McDonald's French Fries

Don't like:
1. Meatloaf
2. Sauerkraut

Having lived in SoFla so long you'd think I've had tons of Media Noche samies, but I only had my first one recently. In Philly. :)

HAR said...

Blue cheese

Lima/Brussel sprouts/ celery...gag
Tofu- triple gag

Amy said...

Foods I like:
1. Beef - I'll probably die from Mad Cow disease, but I probably won't know it. ;o)

2. Broccoli - Once my most hated vegetable, now is something I seek out in any vegetable medley I consume.

3. Potatoes - A moment on my lips, a lifetime on my hips, but oh so yummy!

Foods I hate:

1. Lima Beans - they make me gag

2. Venison - Okay, so I've never tried it, but I can't bring myself to eat Bambi.

3. Head Cheese - It looks like something straight out of a horror movie, smells like dead bodies, and I'm sure doesn't taste much better either.

buffalodickdy said...

amy- Lima beans almost made my dislike list! Head cheese? It's not the guts that scare me, it's the gelatin that holds it together!

TentCamper said...

2. Salt Water Taffy (if that is a food)
