Drop me off at a tropical resort and I will order a Pina Colada as quickly as possible! Despite the excessive amount of sugar, I also had a long love affair with Malibu Rum. It would stand to reason then, that I must love coconut, but I don't! It's "coconut flavoring" that I love. Isn't it weird how different the "flavoring" is from the real thing. I would never choose to eat real coconut. In fact I think it's pretty gross. I think that's why you only see people eat coconuts when they're stranded on a deserted island. It's a last resort food. I know it would be for me. Maybe it's the texture. It's tough to exactly pinpoint the problem.
On Fathers Day, I baked Dave one of his favorite cakes, German Chocolate. I like the cake part, but I refuse to eat it, because Dave wants that disgusting coconut pecan frosting on it. That sickening frosting has an amazing power. It repels me from eating cake. I won't even say what it looks like and the smell of it makes me want to barf. Dave loves it, go figure??? This is what happens to a person when they are denied sugar cereal and powdered donuts as children. Their sad little palates learn to find joy in this nasty excuse for frosting. The upside is that I was able to bake a cake and not take a single bite (is that not a miracle in itself?), the downside is that Dave then ate the entire thing by himself.
