Sort of a self-indulgent rant/post, but I'm getting tired of deferring to plain eating friends when it comes to restaurant selection.
When I suggest a restaurant I like, I'm met with a grimace and "I don't like that kind of food".
When my friend suggests a plain eating establishment, I'm automatically a food snob if I say I don't like her choice of restaurant or that kind of food.
I feel like it's a wasted opportunity, and a calorie drain for me to eat plain food when I don't like it. I realize it's just one meal, but this week, meeting up with friends has meant the only food I've liked eating has been what I've been making at home.
I realize there are some plain eaters out there, who will find something on any menu, or pick the mushrooms off the pizza. If you're a peaceful plain eater, please don't be offended by this post. It's the domineering plain eaters that I'm beginning to resent ;-) Just a little.
How do you deal with this situation? Grin and bear it? Should use my mom's approach of repeating "Try it, you'll like it" until she caves?
