    Default Disgusting dinners at someone else's house

    What's the worst thing you've ever been served at a friend's house?
    Like when you're a kid and you "eat over" somewhere and they serve
    something you wouldn't eat on a bet but they're nice people and it's
    your friend and you gotta eat it to be polite.

    I remember being in the seventh grade and eating dinner at a friends
    house a during Lent and the mom served creamed hard-boiled eggs on
    toast. I still shudder remembering it.

    mushy, over cooked spaghetti that had been first rinsed in water
    (gadzooks, it was both wet *and* cold) then served on one of those nasty
    foam disposable plates, with overly sweetened tomato sauce on top.

    Not too long ago I had dinner at a friend's home. She made lasagna and
    it had cumin in it. Yuck. Cumin does not belong in lasagna. This friend
    is quite a good cook, usually. In this case, the food was edible, but it
    just tasted "wrong".

    The absolute worst was my sister's eggplant parm/lasagna. She layered
    raw slices of eggplant with cheese and sauce. She might have put raisins
    in it too. She puts raisins in everything. This was my first time eating
    eggplant and it was a long time before I would ever try it again.
    It was squeaky and bitter.

    Turkey stuffing that was so watery it poured off a serving spoon.

    Watery lasagna made with cottage cheese.

    Hashbrown casserole with corn flake topping.

    Spare ribs cooked on a grill over high heat for 30 minutes, served
    with dry boneless chicken breast from market day with canned green
    beans on the side.

    BLT's with miracle whip.

    Salmon patties with peas in them.

    The list could go on and on.

    Three things come to mind, all from when I was a kid.

    1. Beets. I actually don't dislike them, but for some reason
    they immediately made me sick. This was at a friend's house--very
    classy family. I spewed at the table.

    2. Oatmeal (normal US style).

    3. Puree mongole consisting of a can of tomato soup and a can of
    green pea soup.

    They were both first encountered at my paternal grandparents'
    house. I later encountered the oatmeal at private school. I
    lived in dread oatmeal days.

    One man's meat is another's poison.... my grandmother used to make
    creamed eggs on toast, and it was fantastic.

    My hit list... Jerusalem artichokes, which I loathe (and I know lots
    of people like them). Cheese grits. And the winter after my best
    friend's mother froze all her garden vegetables, and they tasted like
    plastic. At EVERY meal, for months....

    Gamey, tough venison steak, served up with canned aspargus alongside.

    My grilled half chicken ... well, of the four of us, mine came
    out half-grilled chicken. Raw. I guess it wound up on the
    cold side of the Weber. Rather than interrupt what was a fun
    dinner, I cut it up so it wasn't obvious I didn't eat the whole thing,
    and filled up on the sides.

    Eggplant can be really bad in the wrong hands. My mother thought she
    hated eggplant until she tried it at an Afghan restaurant and found that
    it was indeed really good when cooked properly.

    I'm not familiar with this, how does it compare to egg salad? Same thing
    under a different name, or a completely different preparation.

    You can't get much worse than canned asparagus. I'll eat it only out of
    pity for the poor asparagus.

    Venison is normally very good, but it sounds like someone didn't have a
    handle on how to cook that one.

    I have only recently discovered that I actually like eggplant. A
    coworker brought eggplant meatballs to work for a potluck and I bravely
    tried one. Amazingly good. Since then, I am all about the eggplant.

    That recipe needs a splash of worcestershire sauce and/or hot sauce.
    I agree it is pretty good.

    Not enough.

    I'm not all that fussy but at least make enough that the peas don't
    need to be counted. I'll never forget being asked to a meat ball and
    pasta dinner at a neighbor's house and everyone was served a salad
    dish with a bit of ziti, very little sauce, and one small meat ball...
    this was the main course. Eventually everyone was asked if they'd
    like seconds, the host walked around the table placing a half meat
    ball into the plates, I refused. Needless to say I never returned.

    I loved creamed eggs on toast. Add a little dried beef and it's
    heavenly.

    I don't much like peas, so don't put them in anything, but as I
    recall, salmon patties are sometime served with a cream sauce
    containing peas. You don't put peas in the salmon patties,
    fergoshsakes!
