My father had the philosophy that children should eat what they are served. This was the result of his growing up during the depression. And my mom served things that only my father liked. The most disgusting and repulsive food to me were creamed Lima Beans.
The texture was gritty and flavorless. He seemed to like everything creamed, including spinach, lima beans and corn. Why anyone likes cream on vegetables still escapes me to this day.
He also liked raw onions in everything and the worst were meatloaf and hamburgers. I remember picking out the onions in everything I could find, and I do not eat them now. My mother bought a blender years ago and chopped up the onions and celery that she put in the stuffing because I would sit and pick them out of the dressing.
We had to finish everything on our plates and I would sit in the dark in the kitchen, gagging and holding my nose while I had to eat what was there.
I still do not eat Lima Beans and will pick them out of vegetable and make a nice, neat little pile of them on my dish. They are a vegetable invented to punish children.
