I've been thinking about this for some time, and am glad for this forum.
I know the saying, "you eat with your eyes first" and I totally agree. But if something made at home for yourself, not meant to impress anyone, looks weird but tastes wonderful, what's the deal?
A couple months ago, I made a cream of chicken soup from some leftover roasted chicken. There were tomatoes and mushrooms in these leftovers. When I buzzed it with the immersion blender it turned a terrible shade of pinkish gray. Smelled delicious, tasted delicious, but I just could NOT get over what it looked like.
What else have you made that you couldn't eat because of the way it looked? (It's part of my problem with crustaceans, too)
