herdivineshadow: (i want to believe)

So I’m reading about a place I’ve been to eat at a few times and the article has the following:

Until roughly a decade ago, when the Chinese began travelling more freely, bringing with them thrillingly punchy cooking from its various provinces, Chinese food in Britain was dying. It was dominated by over-sweetened iterations of clumsy Cantonese dishes which made you hate yourself for eating them.

And I cannot help but wonder where this person had been going to eat. I mean sure, you do have English-Chinese food, but that’s why when you go to a Chinese restaurant you take a look and see if there are more white people than Chinese people there and then you know what kind of Chinese food to expect. I guess this guy didn’t know about the secret Chinese menu.

Olives

Look at them. The lying toads.

SO. I like to eat many different foods. The list of foods that I do like to eat is vast and varied. There are however, some foods that I don’t like to eat. This list, when laid out, can be a bit surprising considering the things that I am willing to eat and enjoy.

Sensibly my main issue with nearly all of these foods is the taste. I don’t like the taste. This makes sense.

The other issue I have with some of these foods is that they looks SO TASTY AND APPETISING. So tasty. And yet they are not.

Basically, I don’t like food that looks like it should taste good.

First up? Olives. Now, I like olive oil. Olive oil is great. It’s nice to cook with. It’s nice to dip bread into and eat. It’s nice to drizzle over my vegetables or fish.

Olives though? EUGH. And yet? They look so good, round and shiny and perfect. Even the texture is good (and texture is important with food). I don’t even mind the smell.

However, when I bite into one and the flavour spreads across my tongue? MASSIVE FAIL. And I want to like them so badly.

I might get concerned that I'd fall over from lack of calories...but no. I eat what I eat and right now I don't worry about it too much - there's other stuff that's more important. :D

In other news, I finally made it to the opticians after getting a letter saying my eye test was due a few weeks ago and my eyes just giving up on being not hurty in the afternoons this week. The solutions are eye exercises and extortionately priced new glasses.

At least the eye test will be free once I claim it on work expenses. :D

I cannot wait until my new glasses are ready. I am possibly only slightly more excited about the glasses than I am about the new AFI album. But only slightly. And only because I like being able to see things.
