How weird is this? Last night, we tried out a new chili recipe that involved beer and chocolate. When we were talking to my mom later that night, she asked us how it was. I said it was okay, but mostly all I could taste was the beer. My husband looked at me funny and said, "Really? I mostly tasted chocolate -- I could hardly tell there was beer in it at all!"
I had leftovers of it for lunch today, and I still can't really taste the chocolate. It's mostly beer, a little tomato. And I am not a beer fan. Neither is my husband, so we can't just assume that my taste buds are accustomed to chocolate and his to beer.
It makes me wonder what else I taste differently than other people. When someone agrees with me that a particular food is tasty, are we really tasting the same things? Or does watermelon, say, taste one way to me and another way to you, but we both agree it's tasty? Kind of flips my lid a little every time I realize that I experience the world in a completely unique way, as does everyone else.
Okay, enough Deep Thoughts. Time to get back to my crocheting while the girls nap and my son does some jigsaw puzzles. I'm working up a new set of embellishments that are tickling my fancy quite a bit :-D
