I Hate Coriander Day

 Sometimes it seems like there is a day for everything and this proves it.  February 24 is the 'official' I hate Coriander Day.  Or its leaf, cilantro.

I am one of those folks can't abide the taste of cilantro, though the seed itself doesn't bother me.  I omit it whenever it is called for in a recipe.  I don't even substitute.  And heaven forbid they mix it up in the produce section with parsley.

According to Ancestry.com they have yet to identify any genetic reason for the aversion. They think it may have something to do with where our ancestors come from.  Well, not much cilantro being used in Northern Italian or Eastern European cuisine.  

But I will make my Mexican and Indian dishes without it.  For sure.

My Baby


 Call me crazy.  I bought another Jag.  Can't possibly be worse than the last one!
