See this piece of toast? To me it is too dark and I will not eat it! lol  Also, there is a quirky thing that I like to do with my raisin bread. I like to toast it and then let it cool a little before I butter it because I like it a little crunchy. estatic

Also, my husband finds it quite odd in that I MUST have peanut butter with my chili. He has never heard of peanut butter with chili, and I find it odd that hasn’t. ~LOL LOL

I have found over the years by clients who grew up in different cities across the country that everyone has a different way of making chili. Take my family for instance. My mom always added pasta to her chili and so to me it seems odd when no pasta is added.   I will eat chili without pasta, but not without peanut butter on crackers or bread.happy

Do you have certain quirks about your food preferences?

    • Eeeeeewwwwww wet bread? I never thought of it that way before. Thx bfly my husband already thinks I’m a freak.

      Shopgirl I wouldn’t have thought od PB with chili but I love PB so..... pasta in the chili....well isn’t that like the pasta figoli at olive garden? I do that since I don’t like that thick (yuck!) chili

      A friend convinced me years ago to try the jelly and grilled cheeze.... kinda like m&m’s with popcorn... actually I like reeses pieces with popcorn better.

      I’m just happy that there are others out there like me!

    • I have a co-worker that is originally from Indiana and she too grew up eating chili that had pasta in it.  When she told me about it that was the first I had ever heard of chili made with pasta.  For me...chili is made with ground beef or ground turkey, kidney beans, bell pepper, chili seasoning, and stewed tomatoes...ground up.  NO pasta in mine.
      And I like to top my bowl of chili off with a dollup of sour cream and some grated cheese.  

      I like to eat Cheetos (when I do) dipped in ketchup.  

      No peanut butter with my chili...no jelly with my grill cheese.  Now speaking of that...I do have a good friend that makes this cheese ring (sorta of like a cheese ball) and in the middle of the cheese ring she puts strawberry jelly.  You put the cheese on a cracker and top it off with the jelly...and let me tell you...it’s to die for.

      And definitley no WET BREAD FOR ME EITHER...YUCK!

    • If I’m making a sandwich...say a turkey and cheese the mustard has to be on the side with the turkey not the side with the mayo...it’s just not right. It was funny when I found out my son feels the same way.

      I am from Cincinnati and I always make my chili with spaghetti.
      We call it Cincinnati style. There are actually dueling chili places there, one is Skyline Chili and the other is Gold Star Chili.
      Spaghetti topped with chili, beans and grated cheese, onions and oyster crackers.

    • My husband think I’m crazy but I like my oatmeal with salt and pepper. I don’t like it sweet with brown sugar and cinnamon. I like it the same way I like rice. If I’m really feeling indulgent I’ll put butter on it, too.

    • No Wet Bread! YUK! My mom used to make SOS, anybody know what that is? Well, ours was ground beef with gravy served over toast. I could not and still can’t tolerate soggy bread!

      I could do peanutbutter crackers with chili! sounds yummy! I could eat pasta in my chili. I could even eat that almost burnt piece toast that shopgirl posted! I like things a little brown around the edges. But I could not eat grape jelly with grilled cheese. I’m allergic to dairy! But I’d try it!

      When our youngest boy was little he got on a jelly and mustard sandwich kick. It’s all he wanted to eat for the longest time!  

      How about a peanut butter, banana, and Miracle Whip sandwich? YUM! And, oh, Lays regular potato chips on a lunchmeat or tuna sandwich.  

      I’m so glad to have my appetite back!

    • I have a friend who will eat all the one thing on her plate first before she digs into other, i.e. She eats all the vegetables, then to the meat, then to the potatoes etc.  She does not mix and match chew in her mouth.

    • Well I have not seen this one.

      When I eat ice cream I microwave it for 15 seconds to soften it up a bit.  

      The first time my cousin saw this she thought I was crazy, but I didn’t care. I hate eating really hard ice creams straight from the freexer.

    • Okay, maybe ya’ll already know this one, but the first time I saw my daughter dip her french fries in her Wendy’s frosty I about freaked! I then learned that all of the young people were doing it. “Try it, you’ll like it!”

      I remain unconvinced.

    • I like french fries dipped in ranch dressing.  

      And how do you like your bacon?  Half way cooked where it’s chewy or very crisp bacon? I happen to like both.

      Eggs???  Fried, scrambled, boiled

    • I don’t like my deserts to touch my food, they must be on a separate plate, and I can’t eat deserts with the same fork that I ate my food with.  I either have to wash it or get a different one.  My husband says that I am definitely alien...

    • It is very interesting to read how all of you like your foods, and what things you have tried together, as well as the foods you don’t care for. I wish I had more time to comment, but...“bah hum bug“... I need to get ready for work.

      I look forward to reading more entries. It is very interesting.
