    haha same here to both items!

    my mum used to overcook (ruin really) most things. veggies were boiled to a pulp and meat was cooked til it resembled boots.

    her food also lacked seasoning and flavour. any kind of stew/casserole was hideous, ditto to cottage/sheps pie. she also used to make this polish buckwheat dish, probably my absolutely most hated meal. she'd make enough to last a few days too. christ, my childhood food memories are terrible. at least she was generous with fast food (prob so she didn't have to cook )

    Of course her excuse was they were 50c per shank back then! I cook them now but slow cook them in beautiful sauces... and the catch is now we only have them when we can afford them!

    ETA: I hated steak growing up to similar reasons stated above. Our farm had cattle and dad would have one butchered every year or two so we had a massive freezer full of steak and I hated it. Cue shock and awe when I moved out and realised a) the supermarket price of steak and b) the restaurant price of steak! (Of course I love it now!)
    My mum used to boil a lot of meat. None of this season and brown meat/mince before adding everything else.

    This reminds me...no wonder i hated fruit as a kid. Mum would regularly serve up fruit salad from a can! Blergh those soggy grapes were terrible.

    Another one here whose Mum would never using seasoning or salt in cooking. Not even a pinch! Salt is the enemy apparently yet we'd have a packet of chips everyday!

    Brussell sprouts *spew*

    Wholemeal bread - I know it's not a meal per say, but I wasn't allowed white bread as a kid and my mother would make me take stale brown bread sandwiches every day.

    Devon ^^ for the same reason and on the stale wholemeal bread

    I eat almost anything now, but cooked differently/less!

    Things I wouldn't willingly eat due to childhood trauma - steamed pumpkin, ham steaks, apricot chicken, corned beef, roast turkey, pork chops, microwaved tofu, tinned bolognese sauce, packet pasta, mushy steamed/boiled vegetables. I'm sure there's more!

    Salmon/ tuna cakes or rissoles or whatever you call them. Yuck! Also tomato soup from a can. Stew made with lamb chops - no herbs or spices at all.

    My mum actually cooked great meals so I can't really complain. There's a couple of things though...

    Choko *gags*

    Chicken loaf (from the supermarket deli)

    Braised steak out if a tin. Ugghhhhh. My Dad used to have it on toast for breakfast on the weekends. Disgusting!

    My mother used to boil the flavour out of veggies too. They would almost be mush. I would get into trouble as I'd ask for them raw. Don't know why, I was saving her work . Cabbage was the worst. It would almost be grey.
