Trying New Things

Well, today was an adventure. We went to Gator Stadium – Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Home of “The Swamp”. Gates were open so we went in to have a look around. So glad we did. For as long as I’ve been a Gator fan, I’ve never been there.

Like the Orioles stadium we had to climb a few bazillion steps to get the shot. But it worth it.

The second new thing today was eating at a Korean restaurant. I’m not a big fan of Asian foods. Hence, I had fried rice and vegetables. But I did try some glass noodles. They tasted alright but had the texture of boiled earthworms. I tried some rice wine – Makgeolli (I think). I tried some Bulgogi, it was good. It tried some other stuff that was gross – some kind of cold cabbage. I’ll have to ask my brother what else we had. But it was a lunch of new stuff for me.

The third new thing I tried today was mahi mahi. Turns out I like it. Just another white fish. I like haddock, so I guess I’m not too surprised. I just never really new what it was.

I’m not real good for trying new foods. First it needs to sound good. Then it needs to look good. Third, it needs to smell good. If it passes those three tests, then I’ll taste it.

So, all in all, it was a great day and I was brave to try some new foods.

How are you at trying new foods?
