Mini-Meme! Why Is It We All Don't Like The Same Stuff?




Sunday, I made those twice baked potatoes.. My wife and son love potatoes and frankly, I don't! In the afternoon, I made banana bread. I love banana bread, as does my wife- but I like it with chocolate chips and dried cranberries(or dried cherries!) in it, and she doesn't! She likes it with walnuts in it, and I hate nuts in bread! As shown, we end up eating good, plain banana bread!
After the football game, I made tuna salad, for sandwiches or salad... I would have used a lot more mustard in it, but I know my wife doesn't care for it mustardy... see where I'm going with this?
Today will be a simple one question/answer;
1. What is one dish you love one way, and hate prepared another way?
Me first- to illustrate!
I love almost any kind of meat in a sauce made from the base juices.
I hate meat in almost any kind of sauce made from fruit.
We are not passing judgement here, I hope I strike a cord with everyone who cooks or eats with someone they disagree with- but still gets along with!

Buffalo: You know what is beautiful about the plain banana nut bread? You love your wife and family enough to compromise that is what love is all about!!;)

Mona said...

Snow would love your banana bread...I have yet to taste one...

I hate pasta in tomato sauce & basil & I love it in sour cream & cheese

buffalodick said...

Darngirl- No matter how hard I try, I will never be "Me first"..I love the line from Ben-Hur- "We exist to serve"...
Mona- I like it the first way, but your version sounds incredibly good! Hope you are well, E-mail soon..(buffalodickydy@yahoo.com)..

I can tolerate a good bolognese, I like a fast marinara but I dont like tomatoes when they are cooked, the peels, the chunks, none of it....yet I make it for who ever wants it and I make it good.

buffalodick said...

DogB- You and I share common ground on this- you know it's worth, love the people who do, but don't enjoy what they enjoy!

Akelamalu said...

How sweet you are to make the potatoes for your wife and son even though you don't like them.

On Pancake Day I slave over a hot stove making a mound of pancakes for MWM - I can't stand them myself. :(

Heff said...

Jeez, "BuffaloRichard", do you just cook ALL THE TIME ?!?

buffalodick said...

Ake- "slave" making pancakes? They are the simplest food this side of making a popsickle! But you make them, and don't like them- so you're OK!
Heff- It's my hobby! I have others, but this one is the most acceptable by normal folks..and yesterday I did do more than normal!

Kate said...

Anything crunchy in my ice cream? Like a blizzard? ACK! Smooth is just fine thankyouverymuch. That goes for peanut butter, too. Nothing hard in my squishy foods. It's a texture thing.

buffalodick said...

Kate- you nailed it! It is a texture thing!..

Changing the subject to mice. The problem with live and let live is the little varmints a) reproduce like crazy and b)chew through anything that's not metal or class and c) track a lot of dirt and disease -- not good in a clinic. I'm afraid Mickey must die....

Dana said...

Brownies, cookies - any kind of baked item that has nuts makes me CRAZY! Give me the plain-Jane version ... thank you very much!

buffalodick said...

Jeanne- If everything is in place, none of that happens.. I've never had a mouse or a rat in my home- garage, maybe..
Dana- You and I agree on this!

Lulda Casadaga said...

Well, I am a Hellmans mayo snob...keep that Frenches crap away from my tuna & potato salad thank you very much!!
And sorry BD I side with your wifey on the walnuts or any kind of nut in my bread....:P

Happy New Year!! Oh and give me some HARD cookies please...no softies for me!

Just telling it like it is said...

As is my life...but you know what you are loved...even better!!!

Mona said...

Hey Buf, I did post a longish post today that can be read at leisure :)

Feeling much better today, thank you!

buffalodick said...

lulda- I'll any mayo, but won't use Miracle Whip- it's all air water and sugar...
Darngirl- Tomorrow, by request, I'm making cole slaw.. I'm learning to like it!
Mona- Already read it!

Chef E said...

I would like anything you and Dog cook so I would be an easy pleaser! (more mustard yeah!)

Hubby does not like chocolate mint mixed anything, like ice cream...I do...but he will eat mints, then have a chocolate near the same time...I do not get that?

He does not like hamburger, even the 95% lean, but if I tell him I had them ground up some fresh loin, he will eat it...*snicker*, cause you know Buff we cooks gotta have our beef...BBQ'd or grilled!

G-Man said...

Tuna...Onions...Miracle Whip!

But...Any way is OK!!!

pinknest said...

you hate nuts in bread?!?! what?! this saddens me.

Gnightgirl said...

I love a good strong cheese, and he loves Kraft American slices. That he won't let me put parmesan on his pasta, when I KNOW it will taste better that will just kills me!

buffalodick said...

ChefE- All in family liked beef- me-rare, one son med. rare, other son- medium, wife- med. to med rare... I cut my own loin into steaks so they are all different thicknesses, but get done about the same time!
G-man- The cook always settles for what the others want...
Pink- I'll eat a handful of nuts along with the bread- but not in it!
Gnightgirl- I love the strong cheeses also.. we call American process cheese food "Nerd Cheese"!

Chef E said...

Buff- you are so bad, but I like you cooked that way! Unicef :)

Hey I cannot send any jokes lately they are all over every sites you visit lol

buffalodick said...

Chef- I really was in sales for 35 years! I really know a joke for any occasion- ask!

MarmiteToasty said...

I make me lads piles of bacon butties at the weekends, knowing I cant have any...... but the smell is to die for :)

TavoLini said...

That's funny! Growing up, it was cookie wars--Dad liked them with nuts and raisins, Mom liked them with nuts, no raisins, and my sister and I liked them with no nuts and no raisins. (sounds like the beginning of a math problem!)

buffalodick said...

Marmy- There has to be a shot(Swine flu?) that could cure you of this no pork allowed in diet!
Tavolini- Exactly what I'm talking about!

Just telling it like it is said...

I like slaw made with vinegar in stead of mayo!!

buffalodick said...

Darngirl- I use both, and they love it! appple cider and white vinegar, with mayo, white sugar,celery seed, black and white pepper- and dry mustard!

HoodChick said...

Visiting from the Raisin Chron.
I hate mayo. I hate mustard. I had boiled egg yolks. But mix them in the perfect balance and I love devilled eggs!

Don't even think of getting pickles near them, either.

Brown Eyed Girl said...

I like all kinds of salsa. Fruit, veggie, etc. Hubby likes plain tomato salsa.

buffalodick said...

Hoodchick- Welcome to the blog! I had a deviled egg yesterday with horseradish in it- blucka!
BrownEG- Once we took 2nd in a sanctioned contest for salsa- 1st place got to go the the World Championship in Reno...

Heff said...

Ok, cook something else !

MarmiteToasty said...

I REALLY REALLY DONT wanna cook tonight..... Im to knackered and to worn out LOL.... could ya come and cook something nice for me.... pleeeeese.... Im all cooked out..

Anndi said...

Feed me?

Chef E said...

Hoodchick is cool, I will vouch for her...she laughs at my humor! Hey whats cookin'? Deviled eggs sound yummy!

Candid Carrie said...

Slightly off topic, but ...

My grandmother made the most delicious bread stuffing. It was kind of like potato pancakes in a nine by thirteen pan because there were real potatoes in it that were grated and squeezed and the whole things was so damn good I can't stand thinking about it right now.

Well, then some marketing genius invented Bacos and my grandmother's cooking just totally went to hell from that moment on because she was convinced that time spent cooking bacon could be spent better doing something else.

So, the answer: I love stuff with bacon. Add Bacos and no so much love.

buffalodick said...

Heff- Probably pork steaks, and a cake today...
Marmy- Me too, but the show must go on..
Anndi- Hope you're feeling better...
ChefE- I'll post something later tonight...
Candid Carrie- I agree... whoever thought burned bits of soy tasted like bacon...

Mona said...

Ok Let me post the 40th comment!

Hi Buf! How are you doing! (((HUGS)))

Chef E said...

If you suddenly get some traffic here from my TMI blog, it is because I mentioned you in a blog today...

Belle said...

I have nominated you for a Hoy Award. Please see my site www.fawty.com for all to be revealed.

buffalodick said...

Mona-I'll post something on food today! I promise! Everybody say Happy Birthday to Mona (Jan 11) I don't ask much from you guys...
ChefE- What did I do now? :)
Belle- Thanks, and welcome to the blog!

HAR said...

This is basic- I LOVE tuna ,anyway, but with celery in it. I can't eat any tuna with celery.

buffalodick said...

HAR-I actually like celery, but some it is very strong flavored..
