Once I had homework and it was to make a salsa and bring it to Home Ec class. I sprinkled cayenne pepper into it because I wanted it hotter, but it wasn't sprinkling out of the tin enough to really add much heat so I pried the lid off and found out that it was full of weevils. I didn't add any more cayenne to the salsa, but I still served what I had made and got an A in the class.

veggies that boiled too long. Hate that brownish broccoli or sugar peas that fall apart upon touching it. That's how the grannies here used to cook it.

The right way is to boil a little water first, pour it in the pan with veggies and simmer / steam it it for a few minutes, depending on the kind. Broccoli two minutes, French beans about 8 minutes. That way the veggies stay nice, crisp and bright green, with the vitamin C and the flavor still inside.

This is a banable offense, combing rice pudding with improper untensil use.

So many people don't know this, Andre, including my sisters. Edit: I have tried to educate them, but it seems that cooking properly is too much effort. Put a little water in a saucepan and insert the steamer basket. Bring the water to a boil, add vegetables, steam until still firm and colorful, and remove from the pan immediately. Too many people put vegetables and water in a pan, turn on the heat and let the water slowly heat up until it comes to a boil. Result: overdone vegetables with poor color, and most of the nutrients are poured off with the cooking water. BAD!

You ate every day? Well aren't we la-di-da.
My family ate every day too, but not that fancy store-bought stuff. We had to suffer through home-baked beans, home-made yeast bread and biscuits, home-made vegetable soups, venison and fried potatoes, fried liver with onions, and all that kind of stuff. No Kraft macaroni and cheese or Dinty Moore soups at our house. My parents grew up in the depression, and my mother never would buy anything that she could make at home.

I'm with Zapper and friends: I love rice pudding.
I'm with Evo on rice pudding, and chocolate-covered raisins. Neither is fit for human consumption.

Probably the worst thing that I have ever tasted by accident was French roast coffee with tabasco in it.
EEEEWWWW!! Did the tabasco get in by accident, or you just drank it by accident?

My Grandmother used to like brains and eggplant, but she never made us eat any.
I love eggplant. I've never eaten brains though. No idea if I'd like the flavor or not, but the texture would put me off...I'd be afraid it would be too much like soft, slimy tofu, which I can't stand!

As a kid, my freind's dad once made us a Danish breakfast: Toast covered with lots of bacon grease and maple syrup...and bacon on the side, of course.
A special treat when I was a kid was to dip white bread into bacon grease. I remember liking it, but cannot at all remember what it really tasted like. I don't think I could ever talk myself into trying that again as an adult though.

Oh I love tofu, but it has to be nice and firm.

As a kid I used to love things covered in chocolate syrup, not if anythign has the syrup in it, I won't even touch it.

Pretty much the same here. I grew up on a farm (subsistence). Home made bread. Vegetables from our own garden, eggs from our chickens (and chicken from our chickens when they quit laying) milk, cream and home-churned butter from our cow and we raised our own beef. Sunday dinners were pretty much always beef roast or steak with potatoes(also home-grown) and vegetables. Monday, stew from Sunday's left-overs.

And besides the never-ending supply of cinnamon rolls, home baked cookies, pies, cakes and occasionally doughnuts (both raised and cake).

That is how my school used to cook it. Very very bad. Soggy broccoli is the worst thing ever. The whole thing was limp.
