    This is a simple game of food/beverage preferences. The idea is one person names a food or beverage/drink, and the next person after, replies/posts ''delicious'' or ''gross.'' In that same post, said person offers another suggestion, and the posts go from there.

    Okay, so...


    Quinoa?

    [what about boring? like old Really old waxy)boiled potatoes or rice(that has been sitting opened in the cupboard for 2 or more years then boiled for several hours) boiled for soo long it has no flavour left?]
    or fish that has been left out in the sun too long and now just tastes like slightly off fish oil from a bottle or bait from a fish bait bin ?
    or mutton that 'almost' tastes like you can taste the sheep dip and drench and antibiotics used to keep the old sheep alive long enough to kill it and chop it up ?

    i was eating some soup the other day and it made me feel a little bit ill because i could taste the chicken stock used in it which had baby chickens chopped up to make it.
    it also has beef odds and ends chopped up and put into the chicken stock cubes to "add flavour" so they say.
    i could taste it and was not entirely impressed.
    it was like drinking a really nice cup of tea from an old leather boot.
    it would have been much nicer without the chicken stock.
    the soup was well made with lots of experience, hand made by someone. good soup all in all and expensive to buy in a shop, but not to my liking because of the chicken stock.

    (apologies if i have started an argument, none intended)

    ... Club house puts out an unsalted steak spice. They also do Montreal Steal Spice, which is awesome, but find salty. So, um... I'm designating a food.

    Same. I’m into working out and eating healthy/organically. Health and fitness feels better than the temporal high of sugary pleasures.

    the poem ain't bad neither:

    Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
    Great chieftain o the puddin'-race!
    Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
    Painch, tripe, or thairm:
    Weel are ye worthy o' a grace
    As lang's my arm.

    The groaning trencher there ye fill,
    Your hurdies like a distant hill,
    Your pin wad help to mend a mill
    In time o need,
    While thro your pores the dews distil
    Like amber bead.

    His knife see rustic Labour dight,
    An cut you up wi ready slight,
    Trenching your gushing entrails bright,
    Like onie ditch;
    And then, O what a glorious sight,
    Warm-reekin, rich!

    Then, horn for horn, they stretch an strive:
    Deil tak the hindmost, on they drive,
    Till a' their weel-swall'd kytes belyve
    Are bent like drums;
    The auld Guidman, maist like to rive,
    'Bethankit' hums.

    Is there that owre his French ragout,
    Or olio that wad staw a sow,
    Or fricassee wad mak her spew
    Wi perfect scunner,
    Looks down wi sneering, scornfu view
    On sic a dinner?

    Poor devil! see him owre his trash,
    As feckless as a wither'd rash,
    His spindle shank a guid whip-lash,
    His nieve a nit;
    Thro bloody flood or field to dash,
    O how unfit!

    But mark the Rustic, haggis-fed,
    The trembling earth resounds his tread,
    Clap in his walie nieve a blade,
    He'll make it whissle;
    An legs an arms, an heads will sned,
    Like taps o thrissle.

    Ye Pow'rs, wha mak mankind your care,
    And dish them out their bill o fare,
    Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware
    That jaups in luggies:
    But, if ye wish her gratefu prayer,
    Gie her a Haggis

    Old avocados are gross but it seems a waste to throw them out.

    Same with old chickens...They are fine(ish) if they are cooked extremely thoroughly.

    Potatoes that have started to sprout are OK but pretty unpalatable.
