We were discussing whether or not we liked trying new food things at the hairstylist the other week. I have an adventurous palate, when I'm not allergic to something, so I'm the person picking out something on the menu that I've never had. One woman said she didn't like trying new things. I know a woman with 3 young children who only orders chicken fingers when she goes out. I think her 9-year old daughter's palate is more diverse than hers. I've learned that I love escargot, and don't care for sweetbreads, or froglegs.
My son....not so much...which surprises me since I raised him, and he saw me always trying new things. If he goes to Subway, all he wants is bread and meat with some kind of dressing, and maybe some lettuce. I want a whole salad adorning my sandwich! Some of everything, especially cucumbers! No carrots, please.
