so what did you like growing up that probably wouldn't and didn't appeal to a typical american kid's palate? I don't want to turn this into an indictment against picky eaters or stressed parents (are there any other kind?) who rely on hot dogs, nuggets, mac and cheese, and pizza (we ate and enjoyed all those things growing up, too!) to get food into young bellies. I'm just wondering what you ate growing up that your friends thought was gross!
I loved stuffed artichokes. My friends thought they were too weird to even contemplate eating.
