thats funny! I ordered broccoli and rice (2 side dishes) at a mexican restaurant (had probs with heartburn so didnt order anything mexican) and they gave me a plate with rice, mushrooms and broccoli. Not sure where the mushrooms came in at but I told them to take it back...

Its mostly the canned mushrooms. Mushrooms that fell on the floor ended up in the can... The few people in my family that eat them once in awhile only by fresh never canned.
Also they have to be cooked

I cannot eat "strangers'" food

Im the same way. My problem is that I dont know what they put in their dish and am really picky! I hate italian food (the smell of italian seasoning makes me sick) Dont do nuts at all, and am allergic to mushrooms. I also dont like potato salad or macaroni salad. These seem to be staples when people cook things for a potluck! When I go to other peoples houses they seem to always cook italian food. Its cheap and easy so I understand but feel bad saying no. By now my friends know I dont do Italian at all so I dont feel so bad saying no. But I just never know what I am eating if I dont cook it myself.
I do go to restaurants but if there is anything questionable I will request stuff like "no mushrooms". I will say I have been surprised tho... One time at Azteca (I dont like Mexican either) I ordered a side of rice and a side of broccoli. I got a side of rice and a plate full of broccoli covered in mushrooms! They got irritated cuz I didnt say no mushrooms but I still to this day don't understand why when I ask for a side of broccoli I should have to say no mushrooms???

Food Scars - Things you will never eat again.

There are a few foods I will not eat anymore.
Spaghetti/Lasagna/pretty much any noodle covered with red sauce type of thing - Not exactly sure why but I do remember eating a bowl of Spaghetti (it was actually macaroni with sauce and meat) after I had a tosillectomy. I was about 3 yrs old. I remember my mom taking the bowl out of the freezer and giving it to me. I obviously used to eat it. But as far as I can remember I have always hated it (besides that one memory) I think the cold spaghetti thing just totally turned me off. I cant even stand the smell anymore, will not eat for anything.

Another one is cabbage. I used to eat cabbage a few times a year. Never was a big fan but would eat it if given to me. Then I moved a few miles downwind from a papermill. On hot days it smelled like burnt rotten cabbage. After a few summers of living there I wont touch it anymore.

Mushrooms - I don't believe I ever liked mushrooms but the reason I think is because my mom worked at a mushroom factory and I know what happened to those mushrooms. I've heard stories my whole life about it and no one in my family eats them.

As a side note one food I would never have tried if i wasnt bribed to would be smoked oysters. My mom loved them. I hated the smell and couldnt believe they would actually taste good and my mom offered each of us kids (3 of us) a quarter to try one. I was the only that did after asking for 1.00 instead. I got a dollar and a lifetime of loving smoked oysters!
