Writer's Block: Food Loves and Hates

What foods can you not live without, and what foods can you not stomach?
I am a carnivore. I require meat. Preferably rare.

I do not, however, want to even come within recognition distance of slime-monger so-called foods natto, birds-nest soup, okra in most forms, and that disgusting pre-chewed "beverage" that they make in certain polynesian islands..Nor do I want coffee made from beans which have passed through a digestive tract no matter how exalted.
Further I will not eat horse, dog, cat, or any other "delicacy" which has been domesticated for companionship; this also includes close relatives like monkey or chimp.

Mmmm. Chilled monkey brains.

(Even in the Indiana Jones world, the "prequel" turns out to be utter shite.)

Re: Okra!
I've had gumbo which I liked (but had to remove the okra when I encountered it) and I've had pickled okra where the slime was either eliminated or rendered into gelatin rather than ooze. Both were good otherwise.

It's actually not only the slime but a very nasty bitter flavor in some okra that reminded me of something that other people have said about cilantro. (I don't taste cilantro as nasty but I know people who find it to taste like durian smells.)

You should ask an early-teenage girl (11-16) if you want to know about horse-adoration and horses as companionship. I suspect sometimes that Centaurs were invented by girls, since they could be boyfriends AND horses at the same time.

They're definitely herd animals, but they're much more likely to learn to interact with humans on human terms, than say oxen or other bovines, and the domesticated horses are much more dependent on humans than cattle are.
