Believe It or Not…I Have Never Eaten Seafood
Whenever this subject comes up in conversation, people can’t believe that I’m from New England and I don’t eat seafood. None, zilch, nada.
When my brother and I were kids, our family would head out for day trips to either Hampton Beach or Plymouth, MA. Every one of those trips would involve a lunch that consisted of seafood. My mother, father and brother would be feasting on steamers, haddock etc. While I was sitting quietly with my cheeseburger! I think it was the steamers that turned me off to all seafood. The look, smell, and feel of those slippery little suckers would make my stomach turn.
I know the above video clip doesn’t depict steamers, but it’s close enough!
It’s a shame I don’t like fish because a lot of seafood dishes look really tasty, but I just can’t bring myself to try any of it. What about you? What are some of the foods you’ve never tried?
