Wow Alice, that is unfortunate! I know the worst thing my family ever made was this thing called Butterfly Casserole. Sounds innocent, I know, but really, it was deadly. It was basically a cheese, spinach, and noodle casserole, but the spinach would always get super soggy. For a ten year old, soggy spinach is about the worst thing you could ever be forced to eat! I would literally sit at school and pray that we wouldn't have that for dinner. I lived in fear. Thankfully, we don't really make it anymore.
However, I recently told my mom how I was terrorized by this particular meal, and she was astounded that I disliked it so much. "What's not to like about lots of cheese and pasta? You can't even taste the spinach!" she said. I'm still skeptical, but I'm contemplating making it for myself (when I definitely won't feel obligated to eat it) because it might have been a little kid spinach phobia. I'll let you know how it goes.
