I prefer not to try and place ordinal values on tacos. A good al pastor or carnitas is also heavenly.

Eh...most people don't like beer, wine, or liquor when they first try it...especially if they start with bottom shelf crap at a party.

Sometimes it can be worth it to put in a little effort to align yourself with an acquired taste. Never get to enjoy a fine Pinot if you just swore off all wine after a few glasses of cheap shit you tried at a college party and decided you didn't like.

I mean, I still find blue cheese to be vile, but I've been working on some foods over the years, notably mushrooms and have seen success. Might like to get there with olives too.
But that's a secondary reason I don't drink much. I generally don't like the taste.

I try foods I didn't like in the past on occasion because our taste buds change, but vile is the perfect word to describe what I think of blue cheese.

Costco run today... This stuff is really good.

I have no idea why I decided to read the label, but having done so I find it really stupid. They seem not to understand what “occasion” means, the needless repetition of “perfect” grates (pun intended), and the line breaks (ending on “its”, “slices”, and “simple” are really awkward.
On the bright side, I’m pleasantly surprised they didn’t put an apostrophe in “its”.

Anyone use one of those anti-fatigue mats? Are they legit?

I would assume it’s a ‘lost in translation’ issue, but whatevs. The cheese is really good.

Too many plants. 😉

I just put a leg of lamb on the rotisserie — figure it’ll take about an hour and a half. To serve with pitas, tzatziki and Greek salad. And Grenache.
