I do this too Barbara, but with of all things, pepperoni. I will take a long stick of pepperoni and gnaw at the skin until I get it all off. I eat it as I go, then I just eat the "meat" from one end to the other or I start in the centre and then eat one piece at a time.

I also can only eat scrambled eggs with soy sauce. I was allergic to ketchup as a kid and hated eggs (still don't much care for them) so I have to have them scrambled with soy sauce. Or I can have them in an omlette that is smothered wither with mozzarella or hollandaise sauce.

I eat one thing at a time. For instance I'll eat all the corn first. Then I move on to the potatoes. After I'm done with them then I'll eat the meat.

Here's kind of a question within a question--it goes along with eating quirks. Are you a plate turner or do you leave your plate right where it is the whole time?

I am a plate turner. I don't turn it for every bite, but I prefer to have certain foods closer to me when I eat them. Sometimes it is just practical (in my view anyway), as I may not want to drip gravy over a particular food, or it is easier to cut the meat closer to me, etc.

So, plate turner or stationary plate?

Barbara

I mainly leave the plate in place, but if it becomes necessary to move it I will, which seems to happen if the food itself is harder to manouvre on the plate.




Otherwise, I can't think of any quirks that I have . Will come back here if I think of any.

My stepfather does though, with icecream. He mashes it up in the bowl to eat it, drives me crazy to watch, so annoying. Then he licks the bowl , something I think should only be done in private, it's not very attractive to see a grown man lick his bowl.

Hey, what an idea! Move the PLATE!
Now I won't have to go around the table anymore! ;)

I'm only a plate turner when served lobster with the head facing left/on left side of plate. I'm lefty and want to grab/tear with left, hold with right. My right hand blocks those beady eyeballs!

Probably more of a peeve but you reminded me that I have the same feelings about listening to others chew. Or rather some others. One woman at work drives me crazy so I try not to sit anywhere near her but doesn't always work.

My quirk I would say is, when eating a cupcake, I split it half and invert it so that the frosting is in the center.

Yikes I have too many quirks to mention Here are some my DH thinks are really weird.
My first pancake I eat must have salt pepper and butter on it. 2nd gets syrup.
I must have my milk ice cold and I couldn't even consider sharing a glass.
I mostly eat out of a pasta bowl....I cut my meat then smoosh my potato, veggies and salad all together. It looks like a dogs breakfast......yummm.
I can however class it up when we eat out or have company.
