I is for Injera - #AtoZChallenge

I know. I already told you this last year during my failed attempt at the A to Z Challenge in 2015: I is for Injera. And I might have even said in that post that I’m usually not a fan of injera.

Oh what a difference a year makes.

I don’t know exactly when it happened, but something happened over the last year. I love the stuff. I can’t get enough of it. And that’s a good thing because we have it regularly – usually at least two times a week.  So I guess you could say that I’ve become a fan of that spongy, sour, crepe-like bread that’s used as a utensil for most Ethiopian dishes.

We haven’t figured out how to make good injera yet. That’s OK, though. I’ve been told by several folk in Ethiopia that they can’t make it either. They buy it from the store, just like we do. We love Major Restaurant in Indy. And now there’s an excuse for us to visit them once or twice a month: they sell bags of injera! This makes our house all kinds of happy.


I guess tastes change. And that can be a good thing.

Have you ever had your food preference change like this? I did once before. It was with fried bologna sandwiches. I used to eat them all the time. Then, one day, I ate one and realized I was tired of these sandwiches. In fact, I couldn’t stand the taste or smell of bologna anymore. That was at least 25 years ago and I still can’t stand the smell of bologna. And I used to be a big, big fan.

Oh, and then there’s cantaloupe. I used to love the stuff. Until I ate so much at one time that I started feeling sick to my stomach. And no, it’s not because I was watching the movie Krull.

Now the smell of cantaloupe makes me kind of nauseous. And that’s kind of depressing. Because everyone else in our family loves cantaloupe. I want to love it, too. But I don’t.

What about you? What food did you used to love/hate and have experienced a total 180 degree u-turn in how you feel about that food?

Cashews. I used to hate them. My husband loved them and I couldn’t stand the soft texture. One day he put them in my mango ice cream and now I’m completely addicted. Go figure.

I used to hate eggplant when I was a kid. I would cringe every tin I saw one come in the house in the grocery bag. No matter how it was fixed I hated it. Fast forward to adulthood and living in Greece. I loved Moussaka and eggplant salad! I couldn’t get enough of it!
