    Giggling and nodding in understanding

    I also hate when it says 1/2 cup of chopped green onion. Tell me cut up 3 stalks of green onion I won't chop, measure, chop, measure! Does anybody actually do that?

    Edited - can't spell tonight

    OMG, why wouldn't they just go straight to tiger tail? It's juicier than ocelot tail! 😱

    Raisins - I'll omit it from the recipe.

    Anything with cooked fruit (fruit cake, fruit pies, fruit curries -yuck) - I just don't make. The only exception is the occasional Apple pie I'll make for everyone else to eat.

    Ginger - I can't stand it. Don't do any ginger recipes.

    Bacon/Pork - I will cook Bacon for DP. But the smell makes me gag. And Pork, I hate hate hate the smell of it and the texture. I cook it but don't eat it. I just can't stand the smell of either, I don't know why. Never have, even as a kid (caused a bit of joking in the Fam growing up, as everyone loves pork and bacon and there I am, miss odd one out).

    ONE tablespoon of a fresh herb. I end up chucking out the rest. I really should grow my own, hey?
