Great story, we only have one fussy eater and I ignore her, she can eat or go hungry. Everyone else eats almost anything.

Going to give this one a try, looks interesting.

Well, now there are at least 3 of us, plumies!

Fmom - what do you think will happen if your food touches ?

I'm not sure except that it looks different when juicy foods co-mingle. Also, I really prefer simple foods prepared simply and when foods touch, I think the flavors won't be good together. I know this sounds silly and ridiculous - it does to me, too!

Then you would never mix two foods together on your plate ?

For the most part, no. I don't use gravy on mashed potatoes (or anything else, for that matter.) I have only recently begun to use a small amount of syrup on pancakes. My big victory recently was when I learned to make steaks properly and I also make a wine/butter sauce. I put the sauce in a little dish and dip each bite in it (so that the sauce doesn't get on anything else) but at least I'm using a sauce!

Whoa, my Dad sure wouldn't agree with you on this one! For him, if you cook a steak properly it doesn't need ANY kind of sauce! He doen't want anything but salt and pepper to touch his precious piece of meat!

in my defense

So what if I'm picky? I've tried a lot more lately (sometimes against my will). I have my hang ups, I'll admit. (Fmom, I'm with you on the no gravy on mashed potatoes and the sauces mixing making things change taste) But I'm getting better. Ask him how much he's MADE me try. Like nasty lambic beers and some other things. This is how it works with me: If I like it separately, and you mix it together in a casserole, if it looks appetizing, I MIGHT consider it. But there are some things that I can't even stand about myself. Hate beans (unless green or jelly belly) and peas. I like celery, but it has to be raw, not cooked. And ketchup? Only on meatloaf or fish sticks. I will only eat mustard if it is mixed in my own home made potato salad (i even trim the edges from ham when it's on the skin). There are so many more qualifiers (I'd write for 3 days or betters if I had to list them all), but I AM getting better.

Lol. her favorite word in the kitchen or at the table is "except". Life would be much easier of it was "I hate celery" not "I hate celery except..." Such is life I suppose...and I just have developed a new motto "when in doubt, chop it finer"
