Have to admit I think GG is weird too. To each his own, but mixing all that food together, like those bowls of chicken, potatos, corn that a couple of fast food chains sell, or the sandwiches with fries, slaw, and the protein ----- just no. There are some things that mix well but there are some things that should never be mixed. I know, I'm weird too! C'est la vie!

When I was a young lad I had to combine my food together to eat it. Not sure how it started. Maybe because I didn't like certain things and my mother, or one of my siblings, told me that if you mix it together it will go down easier..I don't remember...I took a small scoop of mashed potatoes and then pierced a bit of meat with the fork and ate it that way. Always had to have a combination in every bite...I notice my brother, who is now 57, still eats that way...

Yes! That explains it perfectly!

I've noticed how foods are placed far apart on your dinner plates My brother hates it when his food touches, too.


"I eat my peas with honey;
I've done it all my life.

It makes the peas taste funny,
But it keeps them on my knife!"
