When I first learned that ketchup is made from tomatoes, I realized that that must be why ketchup is red. I assumed that mustard, therefore, must be made from something yellow. The only two yellow possibilities I could think of at the time were bananas and lemons. So for quite some time I wondered whether mustard was made from lemons or from bananas.
I used to believe that my mother invented peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
I used to believe that bananas were made in factories because I didn't think they had seeds. When a classmate told me that he lived near a banana factory I said Wow do they make bananas there? He said No mate, they package them. Bananas grow... @_@
I remeber when I was about four, we kept the water jug in the fridge. I, of course, was to short to reach it because it was on the top shelf. So for some reason, I started calling it Wa-Wa-High. I was convinced it was that until my preschool teacher told me differently. I was abosulutely crushed
Another time was when I was at my uncles house or something and we were roasting hot-dogs. I might have not roasted my long enough, becausewhen I started eating it, my uncle said my eyes would turn bright green, like an aliens. Me and my sister rushed to the bathroom, to check if our eyes had gone alien on us. They hadn't, but I didn't eat hot-dogs until I was around seven! (I was about five then)
For some number of years, my mother had my brother and I convinced that the preparation of meatloaf required that we clean up all the leaves in the yard and give them to her. No, really. There were little green leaf-looking bits in the red sauce of the meatloaf, and we thought it was due to our diligent efforts.
On becoming a little older, I thought to ask why she needed a whole giant trash bag full of dried-out brown fall leaves just to put a sprinkling of green leaf stuff on the meat. So now we just have it with gravy.
I used to believe brussel sprouts were holy because they had a cross marked in the top when mum boiled them!
I used to think Tomato soup was Lava.
I still belive that if you stick a bean up your nose for a cople of days it will sprout
I used to believe that the temperature of the oil when frying Prawn Chips determined what colour they ended up...
Later found out they are multi-coloured in the packet - That's why the Chef is now my EX-husband!
I used to believe that grilled cheese sandwiches were really called "girl" cheese sandwiches. I believed this because that's what it sounded like people were saying and my sister, mom and I were the only people I knew who ate them and we are all girls. My father never ate them, I thought it was because he was a boy, but it turned out he just didn't like cheese. Even when my brother got old enough to eat them he didn't like them, so I never said it properly until it was spelled out in something I was reading when I was about 16. I wonder how many people thought I had a speech impediment every time I ever asked for a "girl" cheese sandwich.
When my sister was about 7, she thought that when you drank Kool-Aid or Crystal Light, any drink made from powder, the water would go through your system and the powder stayed in your stomach forever.
Of course, I might have been the one to tell her that...
My mama always told me eating my yams and green beans would make my b**bs grow. I don't know why she had to tell me that, I already loved them.
Know what? It work :-P
I used to believe that Chopsticks were used because people couldn't see properly, and that the chopsticks were antennae that would then sense the food and allow the person to find and eat it.
I used to think sausages were vegetables, and they grew in the ground.
I used to believe that if I ate enough carrots, my eyes would turn blue! (My mother used to tell me this to make me eat more vegetables.)
when i was younger i used to ask my mum wats for dinner and she would say "Bread and Pull It"
for years i thought there was some sort of food called pullit
.i used to believe that: by looking at the first letter of fruit&vegetable names, you can tell about the vitamins they contained., like Apples contained vitamin A, Bananas -vitamin B, Carrots -vitamin C &so on..
When i was small my big brother told me that if you put the little seeds you find at the bottom of a tub of popcorn in your mouth for long enough they pop into hundreds of pieces of popcorn. i kept one in my mouth for 2 hours, when i was older they told me it was just to shut me up during movies!
Up until the age of nine, I used to think that Marmalade was made out of goldfish.
i used to believe that scampi was fish toes instead of fish fingers....
