This is a fun one.
Who'd of thought that being a picky eater as a kid would pay off. I hated the usual things kids hate like blue cheese, mushrooms, spinach and liver. I thought that my parents were cruel for even suggesting that we try them, but I also hated onions,tomatoes and steak that was in any way pink and how I would moan if it looked bloody. But all that's changed. I even like goat cheese now but that only happened a couple of years ago. Maybe I can come up with something that has all of the things I uses to hate in it?
OK, I'm off to think. Thanks for the inspiration.

I so agree with the cruel thing for sure, well at the time. Those were some long friggin' nights, as there was no negotiating at the table. My brother and I tried to state our case a few times, but to no a vale. If it was put in front of us, it was gonna be eaten, period. What surprises me though is that the dinners I hated then, I love now. Most of which actually turned out to be just dang normal!

I'm having a really hard time coming up with anything I did hate as a kid. Except maybe anchovies and I'm still unsure about those suckers now except as a paste ingredient in another dish but just plain anchovies...

Only two things are coming to my mind: Broccoli and granola. Not sure how this is going to work.

Loved fried eggplant as a child (sorry Gore). My mother made fried green tomatoes one time and told me it was eggplant. Not the same, I hated it. She lost my trust for like 3 days over that one. Smoked green tomatoes? Perhaps.

Ha! I remember my mom saying things like "If you just eat the rest of your vegetable you don't have to eat the mashed potatoes." I would then try to bury the remaining vegetable under a pile of mashed potatoes. I'm pretty sure it never worked. . .

Honestly, I can't remember too many things I didn't like eating as a kid. I'll really have to rack my brain if I want to attempt this TD.

I always liked eggplant actually, but probably not stuffed with granola and broccoli .

I don't think I ever got away from hiding vegetables. One of my oldest memories is sitting at the table for hours while everyone else was watching TV. All I had to do was eat those last couple bites. If only I knew what those bites were now, I'd probably have a winner.

My 'go to' move was always the strategically placed napkin across the plate and then asking to be excused from the table. I still try it on my Mom at holidays from time to time when she makes a casserole or something I don't like - also for a laugh. Didn't work then, doesn't work now.

We also had a very well fed dog when I was kid. She was a great dog because she could eat table scraps clandestinely.

Also tried 'I have to go to the bathroom' with limited success.
