No Like #1LinerWednesday

Mom never used this one-liner to refer to green beans or liver and onions or stewed tomatoes or any dinner food I didn’t like. She reserved it for treats I tried and rejected. (I was a very picky kid. Spent hours sitting in front of congealing plates of “nasty” food.)

She was like, “If you find some, don’t touch them; just show them to me and I’ll pick them if they’re good.” Nothing like knowing where you food comes from to enhance the flavor.
