Whenever I say I'm having Poison Noodles, people look at me like the food must be poisoned. Well, as a matter of fact, that what we thought when we we're little. Me and my brother that is. The name originally came from my mom and her 6 brothers and sisters when she was little. My grandmother would make this meal and they would always complain in disgust. Which, came about the name 'Poison Noodles'.
Me and my brother picked up on the name as well. I remember looking at it as my mom would make it. When I was little, I always had this fear of cottage cheese. The hunks in it always disgusted me. I would never eat anything that would have cottage cheese. But, I ended up eating it on a bet.
My father would me he would give me $20 if I were to eat my plate of Poison Noodles. Twenty dollars?? That was like a hundred to little kids! I took my dad up on his offer. It took me a few moments as I stared at my fork in disgust, realizing that I was about to put that 'thing' into my mouth. The thought was mind bottling. However, I brought myself to take the bit. And, to my surprise, it wasn't that bad. Actually, it wasn't bad at all. Thous ended my fear for cottage cheese.
I still have no idea what the real name is to this dish, nor does my mother or my grandmother remember. We really don't care as to what the real name is. We are so fond of the name 'Poison Noodles'. It makes it sound more fun.
