Thursday Thirteen 116: Veggies I Actually Like

I admit it, I am particularly fussy when it comes to which vegetables I will eat. There are some I can't eat raw, such as tomatoes, and some I plain do not like. Here are thirteen that might actually make it onto my plate:

* Spinach
* Broccoli
* Brussels Sprouts
* Carrots
* Corn (on or off the cob)
* Green Beans
* Green Peas
* Potatoes (Is there a more versatile food??)
* Sweet potatoes
* Iceberg lettuce (not so fond of other varieties)
* Zucchini (Soup or fried...yum!)
* Pumpkin (preferably in a pie)
* Pickles (I can't eat raw cucumbers, but love midget dill pickles, especially Milwaukee's Midget Dills)

(Please leave your link if this is your first visit!)

Stephanie Adkins * Maya Doyle * Janice Seagraves
Lori Johnson * Colleen * Christina De Lorenzo * Nicholas
Shelley Munro * Harriet * Brenda ND * Jana * Hazel
Jill Conyers * Paige Tyler * Inez Kelley * Alice Audrey
Lauren Murphey * Jamie Babette * Mary Quast
Storyteller * Adelle Laudan * Sue * AD

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others’ comments. It’s easy, and fun! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things.

Brussels sprouts? Ewwww.

The rest I like

Heather said...

I love Brussels sprouts! We even grew them back when we had space for a small garden. I wish I had a patio/balcony so I could do some container gardening - Brussels sprouts and broc do well in those!

Nicholas said...

My hat is off to you! I could not tell you 13 vegetables I like. I'd manage a maximum of about six. There's only one on your list that I'll ever eat.

Maya Doyle said...

The only things on the list I like or can tolerate, are carrots (cold only), potatoes, and pumpkin (but only pie). I'm a very picky eater, though, lol.

Stephanie Adkins said...

Except for the zucchini and brussel sprouts, we have very similiar tastes. :)

Shelley Munro said...

I like vegetables. I'd happily eat any of the ones on your list.

Lori said...

The only vegie on your list that tend to shy away from is zucchini. My list would also include the two you don't like tomatoes and cucumbers. Iceberg lettuce is okay, but I prefer the greener, leafer lettuce. The only vegie I don't want to see on my plate is okra, but I'll even eat that in soup (-:

I am Harriet said...

Never thought of making a veggie list but, hey why not :)

Brenda ND said...

I'm a big fan of vegetables too, but I'd replace your zucchini with spinach. Happy TT!

colleen said...

Never met one I didn't like.

Jana said...

Brussel sprouts over fresh tomatoes?? What the crap is that? LOL

I love fresh tomatoes. Especially on a sandwich or a biscuit. Mmmmm...It's my favorite part of summer.

Hazel said...

I like all except brussel sprouts and pumpkin. Our bodies do need veggies, nice list. Happy T13.

Christina DeLorenzo said...

Yummy! I've never met a veggie I didn't like!

jillconyers said...

Yummy list. Carrots are ok as long as they're not cooked.

Paige Tyler said...

I'm with you on everything but the broccoli and the brussel sprouts! LOL!


My TT is at

Inez Kelley said...

I like all these.

Heather said...

Nicholas - Trust me, I had difficulty coming up with thirteen I do like - hence the inclussion of pickles.

Maya - No, no dear... We are not "picky," merely "particular." ;)

Stephanie - Oh, but zucchini and brussel sprouts are so good when prepared just right. Really!

Shelley - Hehe...not a member of the Particular Eaters Club, eh? *g*

Heather said...

Lori - But see, it's not only that I don't like raw tomatoes and cukes, it's that I can't eat them without getting sores in my mouth. I can, however, eat tomato products, such as soup, ketchup and spaghetti sauce - but they aren't as acidic as the raw product.

Harriet - Hehe...go for it! I freely admit I got the idea from someone else's recent fruit list, which I may do next week. I like far more fruits than veggies.

Brenda - But they're both on my list! I actually had spinach earlier this week, and am waiting for zucchini to be in season - they're a bit late this year due to our horrible summer weather.

Colleen - I am obviously the exact opposite; I've met far too many I don't like. ;)

Jana - LOL...I'll take Brussels sprouts over tomoatoes any day. You can buy whole stalks of them at the Farmer's Market. YUM!

Heather said...

Hazel - I can eat Brussels sprouts any time, though I do prefer pumpkin either in pie or muffins. Our supermarket makes these to-do-for muffins in the moist you start to salivate before the first bite.

Christina - What I said to Colleen. LOL

Jill - I like raw carrots okay, but love them glazed or cooked up with a nice pot roast. Mmm...anyone else getting hungry?

Paige - Yeah, I know...I love the three veggies most people (especially kids) hate: Broccoli, spinach and Brussels sprouts. LOL

Inez - Great Minds Think Alike! :)

Adelle Laudan said...

Yuck to pumpkin and brussel sprouts. I like all the rest though. Happy T13~

Heather said...

Adelle - Another who does't like those two veggies. *shakes head* So sad!

jamiebabette said...

I love most vegetables. I'm allergic to snow peas, which I love, and iceberg lettuce gives me indigestion, but other lettuce, oddly, is fine. I don't like Brussels sprouts.
Happy T13

storyteller said...

I love all of them except Brussels Sprouts. They've never been favorites of mine ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Sue said...

I like all of those. I don't really not like any vegetables. The only one I can really say I don't like (which isn't on your list is beets)

Happy TT!

Janice said...

My daughter thinks there is no veggie that her mom (me) doesn't like. The truth is I do love veggies but Brussel sprouts are on my short list of those that I can do without.

Happy TT.


AD said...

i bow to thee :D


Heather said...

Jamie - I've never known anyone allergic to peas before. Interesting!

Storyteller & Janice - Brussels sprouts seem to be the top veggie on my list that people dislike.

Sue - I am sooo with you on beets. YUCK!

AD - LOL...thank you! *g*
