My brother was making meat and the smell smells so disgusting I just can't stand it. He also took my salsa cause he figured it wasn't mine since I didn't write my name on it. But I don't know why he'd need it for meat.

creep 10-02-2010 04:38 PM

You've never had salsa with (meat) tacos?

I'm pretty disgusted by the smell of fish nowadays, but other things don't really bother me. I still occasionally smell meat being grilled and find it appetizing (the smell), but I think it has more to do with the smell of charcoal, smoke, etc. than actual cooking flesh.

Killer_queen 10-02-2010 04:40 PM

He wasn't making tacos. He was making steak or something.

creep 10-02-2010 04:40 PM

It was just an example...

Killer_queen 10-02-2010 04:41 PM

Oh okay. I just find the smell so disgusting. And I can still smell it. It's making me unpleasant.

Are you sure it's the smell?

Killer_queen 10-02-2010 04:47 PM

Yes. I just found out he was making hamburger helper. He was gonna use the salsa to make it spicy even though you just add ketchup to it.

For some reason lamb and pork just smell utterly repulsive to me.

AeryFairy 10-02-2010 05:27 PM

I've never been able to stand the smell of bacon.

Snowcone 10-02-2010 06:03 PM

Roast beef used to be a favorite food of mine. Nowadays, it kinda smells like poo to me(as it is cooking).

Semicharmed 10-02-2010 06:07 PM

Cooking lamb has always made me have to leave the room. Sometimes the house. It smells like feet.

And I actually gagged walking by the fish counter the other day. Our seafood is usually REALLY fresh and doesn't smell very strong here on Cape Cod, but MAN that stuff was awful.

And I've also noticed that un-spiced or un-marinated chicken or beef cooking can get to me.

The smell doesn't bother me.
The thought of what it is, is a little sad to me but I feel the same way when I view nature and see killing, but it's easier with nature to consider it the cycle of some things.

veggilnv 10-02-2010 06:31 PM

On second thought, I remember staying with some omni friends for a week this past summer, and their refrigerator had the most digusting smell of salami (it was actually some nachos, etc) and I didn't want to put any food that could absorb that odor in the refrigerator.
Oh that was gross.

I'm desensitised to the smell of fish as I worked in a fish and chip shop for several years, so I've just got used to it.

As for other meat, its weird; if the meat is relatively unprocessed (chops, steaks, etc) I retch at the smell, but if it's something overly processed (and worse) like sausages or corned beef, I'm fine. I even *liked* the smell of my housemate's lasagne tonight. Weird.

peacefulveglady 10-02-2010 07:39 PM

If its cooking in the oven I don't mind it but there are some ways I can't stand it.

Rachel Bonneau 10-02-2010 08:23 PM

once it's in the oven it doesn't bother me. the smell of cold blood while it's being prepped makes me want to vomit though. eggs, however, make me ill while they're cooking. for the longest time I couldn't be in the kitchen while they were cooking, now I'm dealing with it. (milk smells nasty too - it always smells like it's past the date for me.)

I use salsa with everything, and that included meat when I ate it. and um... I've noticed hamburger helper smells disgusting even without meat added, so I'm not surprised it made you ill. gross.

zirpkatze 10-02-2010 08:53 PM

i've always hated the smell of fish. i hold my breath when i walk past the fish area at a grocery store.

veganeze 10-02-2010 10:42 PM

Fish doesn't bother me so much, but the smell of cooking red meat makes me physically sick. It never really bothered me all that much until i became pregnant with my son then i discovered something really repugnant about it and now it brings on a really strong physical reaction, to the point of dry wretching. Hideous.

GhostUser 10-02-2010 11:07 PM

initally the smell didnt bother me prolly cuz i always liked meat & gave it up as a result of the suffering involved and not cuz i didnt like it or was worried about my health, but things have changed for me now & the smell of almost all meat makes me feel kinda sick now. i still get a weird nostalgic thing for roasted chicken whenever i smell that tho which makes me feel very guilty.

My initial response to finding the smell of some meats appetizing was guilt, but it's our actions that matter. I didn't stop eating meat because I didn't enjoy the taste.

GhostUser 10-03-2010 05:34 PM

yes....I have always been grossed out by it....

peace

mgoat 10-04-2010 02:27 AM

Used to be quite repulsed by the smell of dead fish, but since Winston the kitten moved in I've had to get a little more used to that.

rags. 10-04-2010 03:53 AM

Fish or chicken don't bother me really. Any kind of red meat does...especially bacon. Ughhh

Also, I always have to eat meals with my meat-eating family since I moved back here. Yesterday they were eating crackling, which not only sounded disgusting but also the thought of it is pretty sickening. And my mum kept making some comment or other about the gravy not having much meat juice in it becuase not much came out. It makes me so uncomfortable eating my dinner with them talking about stuff like that...

Bluebeen 10-04-2010 05:10 AM

We have a new family moved in in our block of unit and almost everyday they cook up something (usually fish or chicken) and it's so strong that we can smell it in our unit (they live directly below us). It's like the smell invaded our unit. I can even smell it when I go out on the street. Unfortunately for me the family loves to cook fish the most

Nishani 10-04-2010 05:24 AM

Going to omni BBQ's are the worst for me now. I must've gone a bit quiet at one I was at the other week when the smell got to me because the host asked me if I was alright. I felt like saying yeh, don't mind me I'm just gonna spew on your four burner.

Mental Symphony 10-04-2010 09:34 AM

The smell of most meat cooking doesn't bother me, but ground beef being cooked has to be one of the grossest odors. I usually have to leave the kitchen or I get really nauseated. Seafood is nearly as disgusting to me. Sadly, I'm the only vegetarian in a house full of meat lovers.

Kellye 10-04-2010 09:51 AM

Raw meat disgusts me, but cooking meat smells good to me still. *shrug*

Parsnip 10-04-2010 10:35 AM

I went to a seafood restaurant the other night (not my choice), the kind where there's a lobster tank out front (poor lobsters!). At times the smell was overwhelming and I didn't know if I could take it. I used to live at the coast and it didn't bother me but now it's the worst.

GhostUser 10-04-2010 11:09 AM

Mostly raw meat. I always hold my breath while walking near the meat section of certain supermarkets.

Yes! I don't know what it is, when ground beef is fully cooked I can deal with it well enough but when it's COOKING... ugh! That is the smell of death and decay and congealing blood and rotting muscle tissue. When I was 15 and a fairly new vegetarian I got my first job ever at an A&W... I lasted about 3 shifts. Not only was the smell nauseating but there was so much animal grease on the floor you could skate on it.
