Weird eaters?...

I used to work for a company and the financial director was a weird eater. Christmas dinner he'd get the full platter everything, but he'd eat one individual item (food group) at a time starting from the thing he liked the least saving the best till last, just one thing at a time. It's a weird thing to see.

Anyone else a odd eater?

I can't stand chips slathered with ketchup, I have to have ketchup on the side and dip it.

Most foods which have a natural crispness should be served like this, in my opinion. Anything which should be crunchy but turns into a soggy mess due to being drowned in a sauce is a big no-no for me. I even eat my cereals quickly as I don't like when I no longer get a satisfying crunch when I chew them.

That's one thing that means chip shops are my least favourite takeaway option.
Nice crispy batter out of the pan, steamed to a soggy mess in the wrapping paper when you get it home.
 
I love chicken phall curry,could eat it morning,noon and night
My better half says its so hot that I can't possibly taste it
Just because she likes rogan josh,or as I see it custard n rice

Corn flakes are best when they are soggy, even better when you get to the end of the pack and you get ask the lovely dust.

I have a habit of leaving something on my plate - whether it be a chip or whatever...

a few years ago I went out for a family meal - and my uncle was there (only saw him twice since I was a kid - and then only ever saw him a few times then...) and he left something on his plate - and someone asked him why - he said he'd always done it but didn't know why...

he's the brother of my mam - so, must be down to genetics rather than nurture?
 
Thats women for you,Mellisa likes deep fried mars-bars or she freezes peeled oranges,watching her suck them confirms my belief that women are not quite human

As a very infrequent treat whilst sleeping over at my Grandparents in 70's we were treated to thinly sliced Mars Bars on toast.......weird eating for sure.

Eat Veg first as it's nicer hot.
Have ketchup and mayonnaise with chips but always mix it. Kids have started copying me much to the annoyance of my wife lol

I do something similar, but not as rigid. I always save the best till last. Eat the vegetables first as I can't stand most of them, then get to the best bits at the end.

Also, I eat very fast. If I don't I get bored and only eat about half of what's on the plate.

As a child I couldn't have food groups touching otherwise they would become contaminated.

I grew out of that and now eat anything or at least will try anything. I keep going back to foods I have previously tasted and give them another go. One day I might actually like olives.

My daughter would never mix her food- she eats the least favourite first and her favourite last. She is so efficient with it too.

The thing that most annoys me about other eaters is not necessarily the way they eat but the fact that they never try new things. Some people, when practically forced to try something will curl their taste buds up and decide they don't like it before it's even entered their mouth.

Last Christmas I had Lindor on Toast. I felt like a Millionaire.

My girlfriend puts salad cream on everything. Spag Bol, Curry, Chips, Chinese - everything.

I'll eat anything.. as long as it does't come in a shell (apart from eggs). Apparently, the weirdest thing I do is use my fork in my right hand. Everybody seems to get upset by this.

I have a mate who only eats beige (or close variants) food! I don't think that is his parameter, he's just fussy and it's a coincidence. He mainly ate chips, white bread and Yorkshire puddings and not not much else.
