A Few of My Least Favorite Things...

We BBQed over Memorial Day weekend. And it seems that every year around this time I am, yet again, reminded of a few of my least favorite things.

  1.  BBQ flavored chips. This time of year I'm reminded of these things because it's the big kick-off to BBQ season and seems only appropriate to bust out the BBQ flavored chips. You know what I'm talking about. No one goes to a summer BBQ without having the BBQ flavored chips. But, seriously, let's talk the gross little things for a little bit. BBQ sauce: good. BBQ hamburgers: good. BBQ-just-about-anything: good. BBQ flavored chips? Disgusting. It's like some sweet-flavored attempt to cover up the taste of just having licked the BBQ grill itself. Who can possibly stomach these things? I'm not a quitter though: I try them every year at the first BBQ of the season, just like I did last weekend. And, every year I barf a little in my mouth. Seriously. Yucky.
  2. While we're on the topic of BBQs: Store prepared potato salad. Tops my list as the second worst food known to all mankind. The consistancy and texture are OK, depending on where you get it. Most of the time they use WAY too much goop on it, but what I hate most about all store prepared potato salads is the pimento-y flavor they add to it. It's aftertaste lingers in your mouth like a swig of rotten milk and just talking about it makes me urpy. Icky.
  3. Runny eggs. What's the point? If you're going to cook an egg, cook it, dammit! None of this dunkin' something in the runny yolk. Just imagine biting into a delicious egg sandwich and having yolk drip and run down your chin. In my opinion over-hard is the way to go, but I'll take them boiled, poached (well done), deviled, quiche, in baking, etc. So long as the thing is cooked.
Well, now that I have that out of the way and you all know a little more about me I think we'll be OK - as long as you don't bring BBQ chips to my house. I'm just saying.

  1. Hahaha.... I actually kinda like bbq chips. Sorry. But I DO hate potato salad, sadly I don't just limit it to store bought. And I like my eggs over-medium so I can mix the runny yolks into my hashbrowns. Yumm!!!
