Sometimes I use a bowl for my veggies, too, Kathleen. But that is because I have run out of room

I always use a salad plate for my meals. I only want small portions. When I eat in a restaurant, I get overwhelmed when my plate is piled high with food. I immediately lose my appetite. I don't like having to work for my meal. I ask for an empty plate and remove half of everything on my plate. I am also a very slow eater. By the time my plate is half empty, the rest are out on the side walk yelling "Taxi!"

chicken feet - i know some think its gourmet but seeing them on top of a plate of spegetti and meatball just isn't for me.

any raw fish - lima beans, pickled pigs feet,

I'm a slow eater, too. Shrek has learned to wait patiently, but not staring at me. Most of the time I just have them wrap what I haven't eaten, so he doesn't have to wait for me.

I am always the last one to finish eating, too, but I'm not exactly sure if eating slowly is the reason

I don't want to see edamame on my plate either. But, that's because I really like it and I'm not supposed to eat soy. Finding out that I like it was an oops.

I hear ya Tom, I eat a third of what most do and I'm still the last one to finish eating. I like to enjoy each bite and savor the flavor.

MY BIL can eat a platter of food in less than 5 minutes. I'm talking about one of those piled high breakfast platters. I can't even eat that much at a sitting and if I could, it would take me 45 minutes to do so.

Deliver me from rutabaga, halvah, raisins, cottage cheese, pepperoni, chitt'lin's, haggis, cilantro. there are a few more, but my mind is blank right now.

I would like to eat kiwi fruit, but it closes my throat, so I don't.
