I am learning a few new recipes with a class I have been taking: Mediterranean Cooking.

The teacher is great. I love her.

The cooking lessons are well done. I understand everything that we try in the kitchen. I even think that I could do those same things at home.

The problem… It’s me.

The foods taste good. They may even taste great as soon as I can get over a few basic personal idiosyncrasies.

  • Vegetarian spaghetti and meatballs. Meatballs without meat?
  • Using grape leaves as wraps for a snack…
  • From what tree does hummus originate?

Just the words lentils and legumes throw me. Why can’t you call them beans? That’s not nearly as scary!

  • Yes, I know that hummus is made from a bean… Doesn’t make the sound of it less frightening.

Aren’t you glad you don’t have me as a student in your class to try new foods!

And don’t get me started about how I feel about a vegetarian tofu turkey…
