Suziq, corelle makes a halfway decent set of divided plates! My dad liked them. Go figger.

I, on the other hand, like to combine certain foods. I love baked beans on top of my cottage cheese, creamed peas on my mashed potatoes, Rice-a-Roni with creamed corn on it, and mashed potatoes with a bite of sauerkraut. I like to put mashed potatoes on my fork and then dip them into my peas or my corn.

James eats all of one food before moving on to the next food. I read somewhere that that is a sign of someone who finishes what he starts, and that is definitely true of him. I tend to start a million things and then am lucky to finish any of them!

Not so much a habit, but what I eat. I eat sour cream by the spoonful like yogurt.

I like potato chips dipped in ketchup.

I'm not sure if this qualifies as a funny eating quirk - When I was a kid, all I would eat is the skin off the chicken. I didn't eat fish until I was 16, and only then because it was lobster. I didn't enjoy steak until my twenties. I think I remember peeling grapes as a kid because I heard Mae West's famous quote...

When having a meat, potatoes and vegetable meal, I always have to have either potatoes with meat on my fork or potatoes with vegetable on my fork. I won't eat potatoes alone. I won't eat baked beans alone, I either have to have potato salad or cole slaw with it on the fork.
I also love potato chips and cottage cheese.

When at home, I eat just about every meal out of a bowl ( no plate) and I use a spoon %99 of the time , rarely a fork ( except spaghetti), and never ever a knife. When i go out to eat, I try my best with the plate, but still use the spoon.

I used to like to eat my sandwiches square.
Nibble a little tiny bit off each edge in sequence, keeping
it as square as possible. Particularly bologna and mustard ones!

Kind of like me with my waffles. Do you like symmetry in things? I know that I do.
