Even as a young adult my taste buds were sensitive and I was not up for trying much. Most of that, again stemmed from my sensitivity to textures. It was not uncommon to hear me say, "sorry that's a texture thing" after having only one bite.
My husband, however, is a foodie. He loves trying new things and making up creations of his own. It is an impressive skill that has opened my eyes to many new things. Combined with my new willingness to try more things it has really opened my eyes and taste buds.
I'm grateful for caper berries, that despite the challenging texture combination, I think I enjoy. I grateful for the laugh it gives me as my mouth tries to figure out what the crap is in there. I'm grateful for Tikka Masala that my husband prepared for me last week because of my new love of Indian food. I'm grateful that there are foods like this that I can enjoy without peanuts (as many of my thai foods have been crossed off the menu). I'm grateful for the way my husband can make a dish that is not too spicy for me and then add one of his collection of hot sauces to it to bring it up to his spice needs. I'm grateful for the nights we take the time to cook together and I'm grateful that we both enjoy cooking. I'm grateful that on those nights that I am working or too tired that I know my handsome master chef can handle the kitchen alone. And I'm grateful for all the new foods that I have tried because of him.
What are some of your favorite dishes? What is something new you have tried lately?
May today bless you with enough food to meet your needs. Have a beautiful day!
