I am going to try new old things.
I have tried tomatoes in the past, but I didn't like them. I think I was doing it wrong. Just like when I tried sushi. I went all in. I ordered the super duper raw stuff and had no idea what I was doing. Because my anxiety keeps me wanting to be one step ahead of the unknown, I have decided to research even the most basic of things like sushi. So, the second time I tried sushi, I was determined to find out why everyone else seems to love it, but I didn't.
After a quick tour of the menu at Sushiland, I was better prepared to try an old new thing. After a 'fake it til I make it moment' with the chopsticks, I discovered that I DO like sushi...or at least the Americanized version of it.
With a success in old new cuisine, I reflected upon what else was I missing out on that I might actually love? Tomatoes is my next food project. I will do my research and consider how can I make this a success. I am only interested in trying new foods that also fit under the category of healthy foods.
I bought a tomato today. I am going to cut that bad boy up and serve it with fresh mozzarella, greens and balsamic vinegar on whole wheat bread. I like all of the other things on that sandwich. I remain hopeful that the tomato is not going to screw it all up.
What other new old foods can I try?
Tofu...To be continued!
