If one person even makes the sound of a gag...or a sound close to it, you can pretty much bet that someone else will be dry heaving or gagging, with ultimately ending with 5 kids PUKING everywhere.
(As an adult I now know why we did not take many family vacations...someone ALWAYS got car sick...get the picture.)
Anyway, back to white beans and ham...
I am not sure why my mom thought we should eat this disgusting meal, but she did, the smell while it was cooking was enough to make you sick (and my mom was an amazing cook)
My brother...the 2nd... as a 5 year old had to have ketchup on EVERYTHING.
This night LONG AGO...he figured if he put ketchup in his white beans and ham it might...just might cover the taste.
So, we all watched to see if it would help.
I still remember his face and that little deep gag that comes from the bottom of your throat...
Yep, that is all it took...we were all PUKING, running for the outside door to the yard, trying not to throw up all over my mom's kitchen table.
Can you see 5 children under the age of 10 trying not to step in the other's mess as we were running from the house???
Mom was NOT impressed.
To this day...the smell gags me.
I try every year after Easter to make it for Kirk, because for some unknown reason he likes it.
I usually spend most of the time gagging and complaining with at least one time running for the bathroom to puke.
