I haz a complaint!

I can totally relate to Garfield. Not about raisins – for me, it’s mushrooms. And for some reason recently I’ve encountered way too many of them in my food! The taste/feel of them in my mouth literally makes me want to spit them out like the image above. Why why WHY are they in so many frozen lunches for instance? Especially the “lite” ones such as Lean Cuisine or Healthy Choice or the Vons/Safeway brand of healthier lunches? I know, I know – because they are HEALTHY you say! Probably too because they are good, cheap, (supposedly) healthy filler and can be included in the veggie count. Well, I don’t care! I think they should be categorized for what they are – fungii – and left OUT of my food thank you very much.

And that’s all I have to say about THAT! Plbbbbt!

OK – one other thing. Go HERE to see all the pictures from the 3 Snake Hike. And I’ll leave you with my favorite from that day – oaks tree leaves in the blue blue sky:

  1. I could not agree more on the mushroom complaint. It is also ultra annoying when people claim the aversion to mushrooms is silly because they have no taste. First, they do have a taste . . . they taste awful, and second, if they have no taste then why so said people enjoy them so much? Bottom line for me is I do not eat fungus on purpose.


  2. You wrote an entire rant about how much you hate mushrooms? What the hell? It’s like I don’t even *know* you anymore. Mushrooms are our tasty, tasty friends! Om nom nom.


    1. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was pissed! And, I was laughing at the image of myself spitting a wayward mushroom into the trash can as I ate. It made me flash back to this Garfield cartoon. YOU can eat all my mushrooms since I know that I get to have all your shrimp ๐Ÿ˜‰


  3. For most of my life I despised the lowly mushroom. It was a texture thing for me, too. I classified them as a “slimy” food and I don’t eat slimy foods. But when I went vegetarian, I suddenly began to tolerate them. Now I actually like them. That said, I still don’t care for them in frozen foods (such as Healthy Choice, etc.). They end up slimy and yucky after they’ve been frozen. And canned? Yuck and yuck. Only fresh mushrooms for me.
