Food OCD- what is your quirk?


I thought about this when Zach said Lucy can't open Tupperware unless it is labeled yesterday. I can't eat meat with bones in it. I can cook it that way but the bone has to be out before I put the meat on the plate I will eat from.

Anyone else have kitchen and food issues they would care to share that seem odd to others?

I like every bite to be the perfect bite.

Also, like to finish my sandwich with my last chip.

Same with burger and last fry.

I can't eat leftovers more than one day old. If I don't eat it by the next day I have to throw it away.

I can't have different foods on my plate touching each other.

Me either.

If I'm eating rice and gravy I eat out of a kids section plate so my gravy doesn't get on the rest of my food.

I prefer this not to happen. I actually have some very cool ceramic sectioned plates that I use a lot for this reason. I don't mind the roast and rice 'n gravy touching because it's all the same, but I don't want the juice from the peas or the dressing from the salad running into my gravy or on my protein or other sauce. I want to taste the individual flavors. If I wanted them all together I would have cooked them in one pot or pan.

This is why I detest the habits of restaurants piling the proteins atop a starch or vegetable for presentation. I like the juices from the protein to be with the protein, for the most part, rather than consumed by some filler mash potatoes.

I have food addiction. Some OCD would probably help me out.

I feel the same way about wanting to taste the individual flavors.

My section plate is a white plastic plate with farm animals on it and the ABC's printed around it. I have literally had it since I was a kid. I will be crushed if something ever happens to that plate.

Madame, my other problem is that I love meat on the bone, but I want to clean that bone off at the table and I have anxiety when in a restaurant or at someone else's home and I can't do it. I'll take the bones home from a restaurant. I mourn the loss of them at someone else's home.

This is anchored. She may want to make the title longer.

Maybe you should retire it so nothing will happen to it and break in another one.

I can't find another one just like it.

It has perfect deep sections. One big section and two small sections.

Hearing the food in other people's mouths. Heck, I can't even stand to hear myself chew so I usually eat with the TV or music on.

You can imagine how I feel at the grocery checkout when Shaniqua is cracking away at her Bubble Yum.

I was coming to post almost that exact thought.

You have no idea how badly I want it to become socially acceptable to eat meat off the bone with my teeth while still at the table.
