Confessions of a really picky eater.

I am really picky. Duh. If you know me at all, you know that. Once before a dinner party, my friend texted me and asked what I didn't like. My reply went: burritos, tacos, beans... okay anything mexican, soups, meatloaf, casserole, burgers... and before I finished, she reponded: actually just tell what you DO like. Ah, much easier.

But, being 23, I've started to figure out that not only can you NOT live off grilled cheese and raw carrots, but that kind of palette is often embarrassing when eating out with friends. Yes, grilled cheese is the cheapest item on most adult menu's, but usually its only found on the kid's menu. Lame.

So... one of my 'new year's resolutions' is to try new foods. It is seriously scary to me. In the past, I have only really tried new foods when a boy I like suggests it. And even then I kind of pretend to try it, and usually just stay hungry until I can eat something I like. I can't believe I'm telling all my secrets, but oh well... now you know.

So, friends, family... other people I may eat with... if I make a face at a food that I've never tasted, crinkle my nose at the smell of something new or say I'm not hungry when you hear my stomach growling, remind me to try new foods!! Please and thank you.


  1. Well, Mexican food is delicious. So, just take care of that one right away.

  2. Just look what happened when you tried Caesar salad! A whole new world will open up to you. Good luck!
