I never really liked mayonnaise. Like, ever! I used to swamp my sandwiches and French fries with either mustard or ketchup, buy NEVER in the world would you see me using mayo. Eww. “Who likes mayo? And, why?” These two questions would always come to mind whenever I saw mayonnaise. Just the thought about how awful French fries would taste when dipped in plain ol’ mayo, weirded me out completely. I would then immediately force myself to stop thinking those thoughts, because otherwise, I knew exactly what bodily reactions would come. Dramatic? Don’t think so! I disliked mayo THAT much.
Clearly things have changed now, because I’m making homemade mayo and there’s no way that I would go through the trouble of making it, if I didn’t like it. So there you have it…people change. Our tastes change! And thank goodness for that. So many things I would be missing out on today’s world if my tastes hadn’t “evolved”. Like for example bacon. I used to highly dislike bacon. Now, well, I drool over it. Cannot even control myself when bacon’s around me.
