Hahaha! That's good stuff! I love it. Just proof that sometimes people will do something that seems silly on an intellectual level just because it's always been done. Sometimes there is no reason, and sometimes it's the comfort of tradition. But sometimes it's just goofy!

Yeah, a lady I knows will not eat either end of a banana. Her mother and grandmother told her there will little bugs in each end!

*snork* Sorry... but that's just funny! Kind of mean of them to tell her that, unless 'back in their day' there WERE bugs in them? icon_confused.gif But in general, it's just funny what people let become a 'habit'.

I'm sure others will remember this one, but my 80+ yr old father in law remembers as a kid that tomatoes were poison. Pigs could eat 'em and once they were processed into ketchup, they were ok. But to eat one right out of the garden? You'd DIE!!! It was a "fact"! He remembers seeing an older man, a fellow field hand, pick a tomato and start to eat it and he said, "All of us kids stood there staring, waiting for him to keel over dead! And when he didn't, we just didn't know what to think!"

Debi, you are friggin' kidding me? Why on earth would someone try to convince kids that healthy food is bad for you. Maybe candy and junk, because techinically that can kill you, albeit slowly and indirectly. icon_rolleyes.gif

I have a dessert on my menu that I call 'raw cake batter'. It tastes like Devil's Food cake batter, but no raw ingredients. People usually trip on it!! It's not something that everyone thinks to order, but once they've had it, you can't get them away from it. I have to be adamant about the fact that there are no actual 'raw' ingredients.



Then my daughter is onto something, huh? icon_wink.gif It is the eggs in the stuff that creeps me out. I usually just scoop out a little bit onto a spoon for her. The batter I make really does taste different in it's raw state than when it is baked.

For years I would not let my kids eat raw cookie dough when I was making cookies. My middle son especially liked chocolate chip cookie dough. The first thing he did when he moved out of the house was go buy a roll of the raw cookie dough they sell at the grocer and proceeded to eat half of it - raw. He got so sick from eating so much that he has not done it again. I was amazed when he told me this. Of all the things a kid can do when they leave the eyes of the parents, my son chose to eat raw cookie dough. I guess he could have done something worse. icon_lol.gif I should consider myself lucky! He's the one I have to watch the most when I bake. One time I turned my back and he took the whole bowl off the counter and ran. I guess I traumatized him for life, because he cannot resist stealing the dough and taking a few swipes at it. Sheesh. icon_lol.gif

Oh they didn't just tell the kids that. Grown adults honest to god believed that tomatoes were poisonous!! Even tho' it was officially proven to be 'bunk' in the early 1800's ( http://www.mhhe.com/biosci/pae/botany/botany_map/articles/article_35.html ), it took a LONG time for it to be an accepted belief and fact.

Oh Debi... people wouldn't eat tomatoes, but drinking cocaine and smoking cigarettes were healthy choices! *sigh* It's true... it's all in our history... we can't try to hide it!

LindaF144, your daughter is certainly not alone. It is almost physically painful to me to make a Devil's Food cake and not at least lick the bowl! I'm addicted. I have a recipe for your son for chocolate chip cookie dough dip. There are no raw eggs (I don't blame you on that one, yuk!) but it really tastes good!! If you're interested...

Heaven help me.....but yes, I would be interested. He is getting married in two weeks and then moving to another state 7 hours away. icon_cry.gif If I could give him this recipe, he would love it. On second thought I won't give him the recipe. He'll have to come visit to get to eat some!

Thanks!

Ok, this is super simple, but it is REALLY good! You can even freeze it in a thinner layer and chop up to put in ice cream and that sort of stuff. YUM! And feel free to keep it secret from him and make him visit for it! Haha. Or, if you really like his new wife, you can tell her secretly and it can be her treat for him! icon_lol.gif

Title: Choc Chip Cookie Dough Dip

8 oz. cream cheese
1 stick butter
½ c. powdered sugar
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 t. vanilla (I always go heavier on this...maybe 2?)
½ to 1 c. mini morsels (to taste)(the more the better for me!!)

Directions: Bring cheese and butter to room temp for best mixing results. Cream all ingredients except mini morsels until smooth and well combined. Stir in mini chips. Serve cold with graham crackers, cookies, or shortbread. (Spoons and fingers work well, too!)

Oh then you'll just LUV the irony, then! Father-in-law grew up on a tobacco farm in Kentucky! He learned to strip tobacco as a really little kid ..... but do NOT eat a tomato, whatever you do! icon_lol.gif
