OP is so delicate that he carries a vial of smelling salts everywhere he goes.
OP's Fainting Couch
Tapioca or rice pudding. Also, cottage cheese.
Indian food looks like baby vomit. I still love it though.
Who has never eaten vomit?
Webmaster, please don't allow my husband to post an answer to this question.
Beef stew looks like what I imagine dinosaur diarrhea looked like.
What's wrong with how vomit looks?
[quote] that white gravy the US southerns pour on everything
I believe that is called "liquid salt."
S.O.S. Appropriately named yet still delicious.
Anyone under 20 probably has no idea what that is.
"that white gravy the US southerns pour on everything"
Is that a Paula Dean recipe?
Oatmeal owns this thread.
R18, SOS/ shit on a shingle is creamed chipped beef on toast right ? Def looks vomitous.
R21. Yes that is correct but how old are you?
I can't eat fish because it smells like pussy.
R22 I am 43. Gah!
The Marine Hotel in San Francisco serves S.O.S. at its breakfast buffet and labels it as such. My Dad tried some and said it tasted just like it did in 'nam.
Pizzas look like a pool of nasty vomit but I still eat them.
Campbell's pea soup.
R9 took my answer. All Indian food I've seen looks like different colors of mush.
I've never seen vomit that looked like tuna salad, or egg salad, or potato salad, or sauerkraut.
Creamed corn, on the other hand, could pass for vomit. I heard John Waters used creamed corn to simulate vomit in some of his films.
R3 took my answer. Another thread for a bunch of people to brag about how they can't enjoy an assortment of perfectly good ingredients and food for reasons I would barely tolerate from my 6 year old nephew.
R5, adobo sauce is red & about the consistency of a cream soup. You may not like the flavor (quite spicey, often with lots of garlic), but it does not look like vomit.
Spam. And not just because it looks like vomit. And not just because I'm a vegetarian. Because SPAM.
That liquid pool of refried beans they dump on your plate at many a Mexican restaurant but few people eat.
I know what S.O.S. is, r18, but I'm 41. My dad used to make it every once in a while.
I'd have to go with creamed corn, too. I mean, I wouldn't eat it in the first place because it tastes like shit, but it probably most closely resembles vomit.
I'll eat German chocolate cake but won't eat the icing. It's gross and just happens to look like vomit.
mmm, German chocolate cake, frosted with the tasty, tasty vomit of the gods, r44. And coconut.
Y'all have children's idiosyncratic opinions!!
cream of mushroom soup.
I just looked up SOS because I'd never heard of it. Eww.
chicken a la king
r18 Another SOS lover here. The best way is to serve it over homefries or mashed potatoes, then use your toast to mop up the plate Can't seem to find it in many places outside of my hometown(Philadelphia) Have you ever tried the version made with ground beef? Even better. Vomit-esque food? Lima bean soup, but I love the stuff. Will be having a bowlful with dinner today.
OP, I agree with your original list. But I do love hummus.
I love sauteed sauerkraut when it starts to turn brown and crispy. So delicious.
Save SOS these are good foods. Folks with baby taste are so tedious.
R18, creamed chipped beef on toast is a diner staple in the Northeast.
You could eat an entire meal of Chicken à la King, allow it to digest for 30 minutes, vomit it back up on a platter of egg noodles and serve it to guests without anyone knowing.
I make SOS with ground beef quite often. It's delicious and yes it does sort of look like vomit.
No, you don't, R59. You make creamed ground beef on toast. S.O.S. is made from chipped beef.
Anything from Chik Kil Gay.
How does one chip beef?
With a chisel, Rose!
Military SOS is ground beef, not chipped beef.
Chipped beef is for the Country Club set.
Another vote for refried beans. Also, r17, it's called creamed gravy...
Actually, it's called a white sauce. That's all it is.
This is sad!
Is chpped beef like Underwood Deviled Ham?
r60 You may very well be correct, but, if you had a plate of each in front of you, which one would look more like Shit on a Shingle?
r29 here. I always had the ground beef version. Didn't know about the chipped beef.
Another vomitrocious food? Minestrone. Ugh.
Oops. I meant r43. I can't count this morning.
tomato seeds. look like bird poop to me
Chipped beef is totally different from ground beef. I only know creamed chipped beef from diner menus, I was never in the military so I never had true S.O.S. Did they really make it with ground beef? That IS vomitous! I actually like creamed chip beef over toast but ground beef? Yuck.
Doesn't look like vomit, but I can't eat wild rice because it looks like mouse droppings.
r74 Yep, ground beef fried til done and stirred while cooking, so the pieces end up as small as possible. Drained of all excess fat, then a medium white sauce is prepared in the same skillet as the beef is in(just the same as you'd do the gravy for biscuits and sausage gravy) Flavor with salt, black pepper, Worchestershire sauce. This is true comfort food. Around this neck of the woods, creamed chipped beef is a breakfast dish. I remember years ago being able to buy small glass jars of slices of the chipped beef(and also freshly sliced at some delis) to make the SOS. You had to rinse the slices in hot water, to remove some of the monstrous amount of salt it had been prepared with. My Mom loved the stuff, we had it every Sunday as part of the big breakfast after church.
Coronation chicken looks as if it has been eaten at least once before.
Shrimp in Lobster Sauce. At least from the Chinese restaurants near me in northern NJ.
I never knew that ham salad existed until I moved to the midwest and first saw it. It looked revolting and I have no problem with egg/tuna/chicken/potato salads
That's exactly the way I make my SOS r76, except I add some chopped onion to the ground beef while it is browning and some hot pepper flakes too. You're right - true comfort food . Reminds me of my dad who made it for us occasionally. He was in the Air Force and learned to love it during his service.
But it still looks like vomit!
Dayum, this thread is making me hungry. My mom always made chipped beef and used that Budig (sp?) sliced beef which could actually be sliced horse. But I grew to love it.
Now I need to find mom food recipes for Swiss Steak and Scalloped ham and potatoes.
I experimented and made a dish of sautéed onions, green peppers, mushrooms and garlic. I added black beans, cut up chicken breast, and some shredded end pieces of various cheese I had, mozzarella, smoked gouda, cream cheese, S&P. It came out really looking like puke but sure did taste good.
I was trying to copy the Chicken Bake from Costco so I coated the outside of a piece of Italian bread got some shredded provolone to stick to it to simulate the cheese bread, scooped out the bready part of the bread filled it with my puke looking mixture and it tasted really close. Although I think they add bacon to theirs and for sure don't use beans but still...close.
Sometimes puke looking food ain't so bad. Just shove into some bread and you don't see what it looks like.
r83 I got a Swiss steak recipe that'd make you swoon.
The ONLY thing in this thread that I cannot abide is tapioca pudding. The rest is good stuff. I always called tapioca pudding "booger pudding." It has those disgusting lumps in it. Gag.
A big, steaming bowl of chitlins owns this thread!
Hot dogs -- because they SMELL like mass vomiting in a school cafeteria.
The recipe please, r85. I loves me some Swiss Steak.
Beauty is in the mouth of the beholder.
Cream of wheat. I can't even type that without gagging.
r86 I guess you never heard of tapioca referred to as "fish eyes and glue"? Doesn't that make your eyes light up and your tummy say "Howdy!"?
[quote]I believe that is called "liquid salt."
You think that because your mother was a sorry cook.
Chorizo looks disgusting but tastes delicious.
I restrain myself from eating too much by remembering that it is a heart attack on a plate.
R94, you might also consider that it's made from hog jowls and pig rectums.
r95 Honey, I eat SCRAPPLE. Hog jowls and pig rectums would be heaven.
What are we all 11 in this thread? Jesus
Potted Meat Product...look for it in your grocery store next to canned vienna sausages!
I agree with creamed corn, split pea soup, tapioca, lobster bisque, refried beans, SOS and oatmeal.
Other foods mentioned here might be gross to look at/eat but they don't really look like half digested food sitting on your plate.
Here ya' go, r89: 2lbs trimmed bottom round roast, cut into 1/4" thick slices; seasoned flour(salt, pepper, paprika, dried thyme) Dredge the slices of meat in the flour, and pound them(both sides) with a meat mallet/tenderizer, use about 1 tablespoon of flour per slice, depending on size. Fry the meat in hot oil until browned on both sides. Remove from the pan, and saute for 5 minutes one large onion and one large red pepper, sliced. Also one or two carrots, scraped, and then cut into long,thin slices(use a potato peeler).Layer the meat and veggies and one 15oz can stewed tomatoes(cut the tomatoes up if the pieces are large) in a casserole, sprinkling with S&P as you go. Pour over enough beef broth cover, a few dashes of Worchestershire sauce, and tuck in a few bay leaves. Put the lid on, bake @ 350F, about an hour. Serve with REAL mashed potatoes, nothing less will do. Dee-lish, and the leftovers are even better.
