What are your food OCD issues?

For example, there are certain foods that I simply cannot eat without the corresponding side. I don't mean I prefer them together, I mean I won't/can't eat them.

There are several foods I can't eat without cottage cheese. Beans & wieners, tater tot casserole & cheeseburger hamburger helper. With my mother's meatloaf its boxed au gratin potatoes. Not scalloped, cheesy or even homemade, it has to be the boxed au gratin.

Now there are lots of other foods that I like together, but the above are the only ones that HAVE to go together. I am not sure exactly why, some of it is that I am OCD, some is nostalgia but also they just don't taste right if not together.

Anybody else?

Not me. I'm not picky when it comes to food. I can have them any way served.

Not really food thing, but ..

I eat just about everything wit a spoon ( soup spoon) and in a bowl. No knives, and rarely a fork ( unless its spaghetti )

Larry doesn't eat steak.

I always forget to count when following the "5 second rule". Then I lay awake at night worrying if I'm going to die.

Egg salad sandwiches Must have a layer of potato chips on top of the egg salad. Ice berg lettuce is not enough. I think it's because there was a running plot between my mother and the grade school lunch ladies to see who could accidentally add a few bits of egg shell. Every time. I seem to need potato chips with sloppy joes too, although it's possible to imagine I could survive without them.

I used to be a bit odd over Green Eggs and Ham, but my friend Sam helped me with that.

Seriously, I can't think of anything I MUST have.
