See, that's why I hate things like that. I'd rather eat at home (or at the homes of close friends) than go to a fancy dinner party, because I'm a little on the "picky" side too. I don't eat meat, I don't really like eggs, and I'll only eat tofu if it's cooked a certain way (extra-firm, and either stir-fried or raw in salads). Oh, and I absolutely despise mayonnaise......and a lot of other things too, like, I'll eat squash soup, but not just cooked squash by itself, and I'll eat spinach if it's ground up or in something (or just raw), but I hate it when it's cooked, but limp. I also hate sweet foods that aren't supposed to be sweet, like Chinese red bean soup, and rice pudding. Rice is not a dessert, and putting it in a pudding doesn't make it one, lol. But yeah, that's why I don't like fancy gatherings like that, it's much easier for me to just deal with my pickiness on my own, and not make myself uncomfortable by pretending to like foods I can't stand, or make other people uncomfortable if I *can't* pretend well enough.
