I usually only eat certain foods and I don’t go out of my way to try new things, but today I will get slightly out of my comfort zone and try a slice of the mincemeat pie that my cousin baked.  I have had chicken pot pie before, but apparently mincemeat pie doesn’t have any meat in it, as it is made from a mixture of dried fruits and spices, which sounds pretty good.  Not the name mincemeat, as that sounds awful and that is what has prevented me from ever trying this before, along with the fact that nobody has ever previously offered any to me.  I am expecting it to taste yummy, but if not, there is also some cheesecake and ice cream that I could have instead.

I am a picky eater and the one thing that makes me different from most others is that I don’t eat onions, which I feel are yucky, the opposite of yummy.  There are a lot of foods that I would never try, like beets, as I smelled one once and I have never wanted to taste any.  One thing that I have never had the guts to try is head cheese, the ugly cousin in the cold cut family.  The stuff looks disgusting, and the name is just plain nasty.  I guess it is possible that it tastes good, but I don’t know anyone that has ever tried it.  There is a chance that it tastes like a rat’s ass, but I don’t know anyone who has ever eaten the ass of a rat either.  I tried sushi once and I spit it out and maybe I am a coward for not trying other types of sushi, but I saw no reason for that, although others brag about how good it tastes.  My Christmas dinner will be baked ham with pineapple glaze, whipped potatoes, acorn squash with apples, green beans, apple sauce and biscuits.
