10. My mother is seriously German.
And HATES all things German. ESPECIALLY German food. I think part of it is Nazi guilt. The rest of it I associate with my great grandmother.

Mom was raised in Belleville (outside St. Louis), and spent lots of time with her German Catholic grandmother, who was from the old country. A mean, Teutonic battle-axe. Who cooked all her food in the same grease so that it all tasted exactly the same.

Plus, my grandfather forced her to eat food she hated. To this day, she can't look a potato pancake in the face. I love them. I have grown to love German food in the last 8 years.
