    Unagi (barbecued eel sushi) is one of my favorite things, but I think I first tasted it without knowing what it was.

    Oh, and why no bagel and lox?

  3. chrishansenhome says:

    It’s the lox. I went to a Jewish deli that was on 7th and 33rd years ago when I worked for CRC Information Systems. I had lox on a bagel. I thought that, living in New York, I should try it once. Well, there was so much smoked salmon on the bagel that I risked smoke poisoning. I also decided that I didn’t like salmon, smoked or not. So, I went there, did that, got the T-shirt, and will never go again.

    Oh! Well, trying it and not wanting it again is different, I think.

    you [allege you] don’t do fish at all, so I can see those things being deleted. (though I notice “carp” is still there)

    do I understand bolded and struck translates to “did that once, not making THAT mistake again”?

    I tried soft-shell crab at the motss.con foodie dinner in minneapolis. I was sitting next to gwengolyn, and agreed with her that they were very similar to nail clippings. not hideously vile, but I wouldn’t waste time or money on ’em again.

    there’s also a number of sweeter-than-sweet items (s’mores, baklava etc) that I wouldn’t do now coz in my post-diabetes diet, my taste has changed, and more-han-a-little-sweet I now find very unpalatable. Picked up a can of pop which turned out to be full-sugar, not diet, yesterday, and bleahhh.

    Not striking out carp was an oversight. I shall correct that.

    I don’t eat baklava any more–too sweet. I haven’t had any non-diet sode for many years now. It does taste bizarre to me.

    HWMBO likes soft-shell crab. He can have my share.
