Thick? Or thin?

Himself and I have philosophical differences when it comes to many things, one of them being the thickness of food items. I like a thick slab of bread when I make toast. I want the outside crisp but the inside to stay soft and pillowy. He'd rather have two thinner slices. When it comes to sandwich meats, whether deli or from leftover slab-o-meats, he likes it thick while I'd rather have several wafer thin slices. At least we agree on a thick slice of pie or cake. Reluctantly, we agree it's better for us to go thin when it comes to desserts.

What foods do you like thick? Or thin? And do you have major differences over that with your loved ones and friends?

Coldcuts - thin
Bread - Normal thickness for sandwiches, I don't eat toast but would go with normal.
Desserts - Let's just say I don't look like I do because I choose thin slices.
Roast Beef - Thick slabs
Roast Turkey - I like my turkey slices a little thicker than traditional

I would have to say thin on just about all foods. I am not fond of bread. But when in company, I just can't peel off the top slice of bread, eat the filling and leave the bottom slice. So for sandwiches, I like thick fillings like tomato, chopped lettuce, but thin meats. The only time I really enjoy bread is when it is right out of the oven. Have had many a burnt finger over the years.

My food preferences are so atrocious and picky. Have been since childhood. Today, for my lunch, I was delivered a roast beef sandwich. The slices were slightly thick. Spike wolfed it down. Had they been thin, I most likely would have removed the meat and tossed the roll.

Desserts? No thank you. I am diabetic.

For cold cuts, I prefer roast beast very thin, but I'm not so picky. For ham, I really, really, want it thin.

The most important thing is bacon...I want it thick deli style.
I'm not really picky about anything else but bacon.

Oh, bacon, I want it thin. It doesn't crisp up as much as I like if it's thick. Well, I'm not sure if it would deep fried, but I am not about to go to the effort of deep frying my bacon. Also, I find thin bacon is much easier to work with when wrapping ABTs.

Interesting topic there CG

I just asked Poor Husband (I'm calling him this until he's better)
this question and his response was kinda what I thought it would be.

Me: Thick or thin?
PH: For what?
Me: Any sort of food, like pizza, lunchmeats, bread or howz`bout bacon?
PH: I like everything with substance, you know that!

Was he looking at you when he said that? Ducking and running.
