'Mornin! So, let's get right to it - Do you have any weird-to-other-people food habits? Foods you love or hate that don't make sense to other people?
I read the comments on this post the other day and thought it was both hilarious and fun. And since my parents are here visiting right now, I thought I'd press them for details on their food habits. Turns out that they don't have as many oddball food things as I do (OCD for the win!), but there are still some "good" ones we came up with. Even Bo actually had a couple.
I love Ranch Dressing on spaghetti, pizza, and lasagna.
Bean & Bacon soup and Vegetable soups are delicious straight from the can. Something about the cold carrots makes their flavor so much better!
My mom loves salted radish and butter sandwiches.
I just learned that my dad won't touch anything peppermint flavored but will chew any flavor of mint gum and not know the difference.
My grampa loved pouring vinegar into his cooked spinach.
My gramma often served us a slice of white bread with gravy as a side. Anyone else ever have this? So good!!
Our first Christmas together, Bo threw me a curveball by insisting we stop to get ice cream on our way to look at lights. Ice cream? At Christmas? But, oh yeah - he's from Florida! He said that's how they tried to get chilly at Christmas while they were driving around to see lights :) I've definitely embraced that tradition now; how fun!
My sister loves cold green beans, straight from the can, dipped into yellow mustard.
So, it's not a shocker when I tell you that I can't stand for my food to touch on my plate. I'll even take smaller helpings of each item and go back for seconds if it means that my steamed veggies won't dribble into my meat or my carb. And if I'm being utterly honest with you - big sigh - I'll admit to having occasionally propped an edge of my plate up a little so that juicy items contain themselves and don't spread to the rest of my food.
Canteloupe just doesn't taste as good if you don't salt it first!
I love salsa, tomato sauce, ketchup, and stewed tomatoes, but I cannot stand raw tomatoes. The taste, texture, and slime gross me out in a huge way.
What are some fun/funny/interesting/weird things
you have with foods??
