For some people when it comes to eating, presentation is everything. I must admit that there are some foods I’ve been hesitant to try because they look so gross. A good example is soft shelled crab. Oh, man, that looks so nasty, but it tastes sooooo good. Another thing is chicken bog. It’s fabulously yummy, but doesn’t look like much.
On the other hand, there are a lot of things that look pretty but taste awful. Recently, we ducked into a restaurant to avoid a storm (lightning hit my mom and dad’s house- where we were heading when the storm hit) and I ordered a piece of chocolate cake that looked beautiful on the menu, just as beautiful when it came out, but it tasted…well, let’s just say it was REALLY not good.
So, Home Eccers, tell me about some things you love that look horrible and things that looked great but tasted awful.
In similarly minded news, my pal at Tupperware Avalanche is giving away a cookbook to the person who can help her rename her dessert that looks tasty and probably IS tasty, but has a horrid name. Chocolate Nut Betty Pie? Ewwww. Go on over and help her out and you could win!
