Last night I had a lazy evening at home and made an old time favourite : beans on toast. Not the fake kind either - genuine Heinz. I'm not gonna lie, I was excited.
Until I ate it.
I was happily munching through but after a few bites I realised…this sucks. What? It tastes of nothing? I used to love this!! A staple food!!
I did an emergency-mental-scan of other recently observed facts: I ate nasi lemak and finished the sambal…I added curry to my rice, not just dhal…my fried rice was too bland without the chilli-infused soy (though it's not yet necessary to eat the actual chillis…).
And it hit me : finally, after 2 years, my taste buds are adapting.
Evolving, if you will.
I have mixed feelings about this - on the one hand, I have extreme pride in my new spice-tolerating tongue (I was always the girl who couldn't even handle the korma) but on the other, I'm a bit devastated that all the English food that I love so much will now have to be covered in chilli sauce :(
Who am I???
