Angry at vegetables. Why?

In the previous post Sarah was looking for recipe ideas and Susan jumped right in and had some suggestions. And as I was reading her response I felt my shoulders tense. A wave of annoyance washed over me. Not because Susan said anything wrong. She didn't. I do not have it in for Susan. Quite the opposite, Susan and her husband are kindred spirits.

Steamed vegetables. I hate them. But here is the weird thing. I don't hate preparing them,I don't hate eating them. I just hate THEM. Utterly irrational.

Steamed vegetables are supposed to be a staple when anyone is trying to drop some lb's. An aside from now on I am going to call them El Bees. I just made that decision. For some reason I cannot explain, steamed vegetables annoy me. I have a similar response to unloading the dishwasher. It just pisses me off and I don't really have a legitimate reason.

I probably need to do some rage work to get beyond my negativity.

Mashed potatoes sound so much more therapeutic.

Mash some faux-tatos with cauliflower or parsnips. They're a bit better than carb-laden potatoes when trying to loose weight (so long as you don't throw a stick of butter and milk in like I do).

Maybe steamed veggies wronged you in another life. Most unfortunate.

How about raw ones? They're even better for you!

the dishwasher makes me insane. While I love that is does the dirty work for me I seriously hate that machine. Yet, sometimes I covet those super nice ones. I don't get it.
