The third eccentricity on my list is the fact that I'm not a picky eater. Now, you might think that this is not out of the ordinary. However, not only am I not picky, I enjoy some strange foods. When I was in preschool, I told my teacher that my favourite food was escargot (still one of my favourites). My roommate in Bible College would kick me out of our room when I opened a can of smoked oysters. I also like to try ethnic foods, and different restaurants. My favourite restaurant in Regina was East India House...mmmmm, curry....I've also ventured into the vegetarian restaurant realm...vegetarian lasagne with goat cheese, anyone? I love spicy foods, the kind that make your lips numb and your eyes water. My Lebanese friends in Jr. High got me hooked on eating roasted melon seeds (which I've only been able to find at Superstore). And working in a health food store, I was able to try many things that the average person might turn their nose up at...cashew butter, carob, crystalized ginger, Udo's oil, unsweetened natural peanut butter, stevia, and the list goes on. I think that I enjoy the adventure of trying something a little different, and it also makes me a little different...that's not so bad is it?
