I just thought I’d throw this out there.
I’m 69 years old and I’ve never eaten a fish taco. I lo
ve fish. I’m not so keen on tacos. Why can’t I convince myself to ‘waste’ a meal and at least try a fish taco? I eat other Mexican food. I like Mexican food.
What I don’t like is food that breaks while you’re trying to eat it. I don’t like sammiches, for the same reason. They start out neat and about half way through them “stuff” is falling out all over the place.
I just don’t get it. Everyone I know likes them. Or at least I think everyone I know likes them. But I’m not moved. I won’t even go into the thing about seafood and cheese — though plenty of good chefs mix fish and cheese — still there’s this thing about not combining them. It’s not a critical point either way for me. Cheese or no cheese — I’m still not excited about fish tacos.
We’re going to be near the Gulf for 4 months or more. We’re going to be in S. Texas for 4 months or more. There are two reasons why I should eat fish tacos. But with so many other wonderful combinations that I love, or that I’d love to try; why should I waste a meal on fish tacos when I could have something I really want?
There’s nothing earth shattering about this post. And I’m not a picky eater. Heck, I’ve eaten Iguana, snails, you name it — if it’s not an insect I’ve probably eaten it. I just can’t get excite about fish tacos.
What food fails to get YOU excited?
Thanks for stopping, and I’ll be here again tomorow. Stop by and say hi!
