Don't Yum on My Yuck ™

Bkeats | Jul 26, 201308:08 AM     143

The phrase Don't Yum on My Yuck ™ has recently been created by NonnieMuss (unless other CHers can provide links proving earlier authorship). I think its a brilliant phrase. So I know there have been many threads about things that you don't like that most or at least lots of other people do like. I want to change this to a slightly different question. I know what I like and don't like. Pretty sure everyone else does too. So what is there that you don't like that others are always trying to convince you that you should eat it and like it? That you have not had it prepared properly. For me its the standard brisket/pot roast that's been cooked until its falling apart. To my taste, falling apart braised meat means its overcooked and dry. No amount of gravy or sauce can hide the fact the meat is desiccated. Fork tender I get. But falling apart meat? Not for me. If that's the meal I'm presented with when I'm invited over for a holiday meal, sure I will eat it. But bleech. Please stop telling me that your grandmother's recipe will change my mind. Don't yum on my yuck.

ETA - Just don't give NonnieMuss any guff about the TM thing. Its meant as a joke. Please refer to MGZ's rules about interpretation. Any complaints about usage should be directed to my attorneys - Dewey, Cheatem & Howe.
