Fool him next time Sattie,before you eat, get a nice slice of fresh fresh bread your favorite, butter it lightly or leave plain, when done use that bread to get your juices..Or do 2 pieces and set the meat on top of it, then let it catch the juices and eat it along with your meat..Yummy...

Okay people, tell the truth. Is there anyone out there who does not lick the plate when there is something yummy (like whipped cream!) on it--when no one else is there (or at least no one but close family)? I know I do!

I don't usually pick it up and lick it, but I may wipe my finger around it or use Kadesma's idea of a slice of bread. DW does not like these, she was brought up with ever so proper table manners.

My quirks: I'm with Allen OK, I do not like anyone standing and watching me at home (if I'm teaching, its a bit different), especially just behind me. Anyone in the kitchen can help but not just watch.
I also have to make sure I empty the pan when I'm dishing up or using a bowl to make something in. eg cheese sauce, some many people do not use all the sauce, or people dish up and leave a spoonful in the pan - not enough for another portion (thats fine) - just a waste I think.

My mil has to buy in bulk, even now in her late seventies with just her and FIL at home - she has two freezers and a fridge full of food. The cupboards are full as well. She can't buy just one of something. She does have a reason though dating back to when they were nearly (or were) made bankrupt and she had to hoard things.

My mil went thru the Depression of '21 and she was the same way---two bulging freezers and an overstuffed pantry. We found cans that were nearly 20 years old.......and it was just the 2 of them

I get in trouble w/ DH for licking the plate. ANd I get the kids in trouble cuz then they do it. He thinks its disgusting.... I think it's the ultimate compliment!
Maybe the hatred of plate licking is his wierd quirk, and not my actual plate licking!

I also have to have my freezer full all the time. If there's an empty space, I feel compelled to cook or buy something to fill it.

I don't lick the plate, if there is anything on there that I want, I use bread.

I don't consider wanting my pillow fluffed weird, it is just that I hate sleeping on a flat pillow. Another thing is I always have to have clean towels for shower. Hubby and I load the dishwasher differently from each other, if he loaded it before me, and I don't like how it is loaded I will change it .

I have notices that the kitchen is empty, untill I start to cook, then DW has a special talent for placing herself exactly where I nned to be, in fromt of where I need to get to and needing things from cabinets and drawers that are right where I am working. It's a small kitchen, I guess I get quirky about it.

Alarm clocks - I set them and then don't need them, just wish I could reset the Labradors to a different time on the weekend.

Bed - I do not like laundry or other stuff put on the bed, it's not a workbench, it's a bed.

I am good at putting the toilet seat down though.
