That's an all-too familiar refrain in our home.

For example, our DD had decided she would eat rice in the form of her mom's pilaf from scratch or in no other form. She was 5 or 6 when DW began preparing it, realized she was out of onions, and decided to do without. DD sampled it, and pushed it away, because, "it tastes weird." If you'd asked her right away if she liked onions, she'd have given an emphatic no.
