Bell Peppers are Yucky!

I don't understand why everything comes with bell peppers in it. I just ate a frozen lunch, which I was able to make surprisingly delicious by carefully picking out all of the bell peppers. I was left with a bowl full of beans, corn, broccoli, carrots and onions wrapped in a cream cheese sauce. If I'd left the bell peppers in, they would've contaminated everything. And they usually are thrown in to almost any frozen entree, probably just for color rather than any intentional flavoring choice. Either that or all frozen entree chefs have an indescribable love for these vile vegetables.

But they're everywhere, not merely in frozen entrees. They're on pizza. They're tossed into soups. They're in my fajitas. They're lurking in salads. And if you ever choose a vegetarian option, they're almost guaranteed to have sullied your plate. Evil bad nasties.

I'd actually avoided eating this entree yesterday, opting for a bowl of cereal for lunch rather than braving all of the bell peppers I could see polluting my meal. Today I felt bolder, pausing two minutes into heating lunch to pick through my food. But why must I be tortured so!? Am I the only one who doesn't like these malodorous malingerers in their food? If you must add color, tomatoes are pretty and tasty. And broccoli is a lovely shade of green. Just don't despoil my dinner with bell peppers. Bleh!

  • I actually like bell peppers, but they do tend to lose quite a lot of flavor when cooked. Bell peppers are salad food.

    I don't know if you're alone in your dislike of bell peppers, but I know that Ellen (guildmistress of Pryanksters) is allergic to them. So the frozen lunch you could pick a peck of peppers out from would be hopelessly pepper-polluted for her. At least in restaurants she can tell them she's allergic. Frozen food makers don't cook to order.

  • I know where you’re coming from. I don’t care for the taste of them either and pick them out when I can. But since I’ve taken to eating frozen lunches there are times I just can’t avoid it.
