What's your favorite food...that your family/housemates hate?

Mine is tuna casserole, like from the 1960's with noodles, tuna, and mushroom soup. Just the smell chases my family away, lol!

3. That is the one dish my sister and I would both agree on. The ultimate "comfort" food.

I love guacamole--my sister, no damned way.
I love pico de gallo with cilantro... Hardly anyone else I know can stand cilantro.
I will eat ANY bean EXCEPT lima beans... Uggh. My extended family loves them.

Different strokes and all that...

4. Creamed beef on toast!!

Mr Poo calls it s#!t on a shingle. 5 kids in his family growing up and it was served weekly at his house. He refuses to eat it. Stouffers used to make it and it was good. Iíd buy it for myself. Havenít seen it for a while but now Iím hungry for it!

19. I agree with Mr. Poo!

I used to watch troops in an Army mess hall getting breakfast - eggs, pancakes, meats, etc. - and then having SOS poured over the whole plate. Disgusting to look at (probably tastes great).

5. Chili!

I could make chili once a month. My husband will eat it maybe twice a year. He loves his Hungarian grandmotherís fried noodles and cabbage. I hate anything with cooked cabbage. So whenever I make chili, he makes a huge pot of noodles and cabbage, and weíre both happy. However, our house smells really..interesting..for a few days.

6. Love tuna casserole--your version is my version

that I grew up on, buttered breadcrumbs on top--although my kids liked it whenever I made it, my husband was not a fan. I sometimes buy the Stouffers frozen dinner version, it's similar. My husband and younger son eat oatmeal, and I can't fathom why anyone would eat flavorless paste. My mom loved Cream of Wheat, and nobody else would touch it--a comedian named Ivan Decker described it as tasting exactly like the inside of your mouth, LOL. That's how I feel about oatmeal, cream of wheat, grits, etc.

This version that my hubby developed is delicious, creamy, rich, and has an amazing texture from the chia:

... my children ate Cheerios, etc., but you can't catch any of them now eating any dry cereal.....
I hate oatmeal and never served it to them, but they like it as grown ups... go figure! Rebellion!

My husband and daughters? BLECH! OK, fine--more for me!

in pie, stewed and served on top of vanilla ice cream or any other way imaginable.

20. I'm the one more likely to be grossed out by stuff, and my son loves all kinds of things

but for your question probably curry - the husband will eat it but I know he doesn't really like it and his face always sort of falls when he smells/realizes that is what I am making.

28. I eat steel cut oats with a side of cottage cheese almost every morning for breakfast.

Each spoonful has a little cottage cheese and a little oatmeal. Everyone thinks it sounds terrible, until they try it.

I know, I know organ meats are not good for you, but once every five years should be ok.

34. My mother thought I would 'grow into' liking liver.

At 36, I told her it wasn't going to happen and she finally gave up on me. I still don't like liver. Just one of those things you either love or hate I guess.

40. Ixnay on the iverlay. I'll have a double helping of fried potatoes with onions, though.

The smell of it cooking makes me nauseous. My late husband gave up on cooking it at home and just ordered it whenever we ate out.

We're pretty compatible when it comes to food ingredients, but in execution we often disagree.
