    Me either! My mom makes soup every week for lunches and I just don’t get the appeal. I mean soup is okay, but there are thousands of things I’d rather have before I’d pick soup.

    From watching other people's behavior, and talking to them, I think this might be an unpopular opinion, or at least an uncommon applied one:

    It's fun to buy, cook & eat foods I've never had before, that I need to research to figure out how to cook and eat.

    I completely agree, especially if it is a vegetable, plant based or fruit, from another country or exotic herbs, spices and combinations. The first time I went to an international market I thought I was in paradise! lol

    What's been on the menu lately?

    Soup is one of my favorite things.

    I like soup now more than I used to: it started when I had to take over the kitchen for my parents after they got sick. With some hubris and ambition, I decided to make chicken soup from scratch. First time around, it was a whole-day affair, but it was kind of exciting. Each time, things got a little better; it taught me a lot, including about the integrity and skill involved in making a good soup.

    This time of the year, I enjoy tossing vegetables in my Vitamix and mixing up a week's worth of gazpacho. Similar is a salmorejo, and I think I'd like to try that this year too (https://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/salmorejo), probably minus the jamon serrano. Winter time is for onion soup, which I have yet to really master, but it's a lot of fun trying!

    Oooh, I just thought of one that'll be very unpopular.

    Peanut butter is one of those things that you either grow up with or you don't. I know maybe two people who grew to like it as adults, and I'm not one of them.

    I've grown to love homemade peanut butter over stuff like jif, although I still have a soft spot for the jarred stuff because, like you said, I grew up with it.

    I don't like strawberries.

    The only peanut butter I like is the super-smooth, ultra-processed, mass-produced brands.

    I cannot STAND the all-natural, gritty, must-refrigerate, need-to-stir types. The texture ruins it for me.

    Doughnuts are hugely overrated unless it's a chocolate with red chille and bacon from Rebel.

    Donuts are not the best. Really.

    Exactly!

    Although, I'll take sunflower seed butter over them all (except cookie butter).

    I agree with you! However, it's been so long since I've actually had pb (outside of pb2), all would taste good to me lol!

    I'm the opposite, I love the gritty texture of must-be-mixed peanut butter. I grew up with crunchy peanut butter jif, though, so that might be partly why. Smooth just sticks to the roof of my mouth.

    I love gazpacho and haven't had it yet this year. I will fix that this week, thanks for the reminder!
