We've always called those "wet-fries" and I've eaten them my whole life. They are the best!

I'm in as long as I can substitute mustard for mayo. Used to have these with pickles slices

(secretly relieved to know I'm not the only soul who has sipped pickle juice)

Bread and butter pickles on ... bread and butter, with lots of onions.
I have been known to put mustard on my yellow corn too.

OK... I get salt cravings. I don't add salt to anything, but every now and then, I crave salt - just salt. So I unwrap a bouillon cube and lick it as if it were a lollipop until I've consumed the whole thing. Sometimes one isn't enough.

I've never been pregnant, but I once wanted sliced dill pickles with my vanilla ice cream. I think that phase lasted about two years.

*I eat lemons.
*I HATE having mayo/MW put on my sandwiches (or anything, really)- I have my sandwiches dry- no mayo/mustard/stuff, just meat, bread, and usually lettuce and onions.
*I dip my lobster in cider vinegar as often as I do butter (lobsterman's daughter...)
*I eat kiwi... with the skin on (I know- grosses you out, it does most people...)
*The only salad dressing I like it vinegar- balsamic or apple cider. I think distilled vinegar smelled like the stuff used to develop film..(yuck)
*Boxed macaroni and cheese is mixed without the milk... just butter.
*I love green apples. I know the best trees in my area and will drive quite a distance to get to them.. And no, never gave me a bellyache. Hiccups, occasionally, but no bellyaches..
*(Blame my mother...) I have been known to sprinkle dry Jell-O powder on buttered toast (in the same way that you would cinnamon)- I know, sounds weird, but tastes pretty darn good...

Default Oddities and rituals

1. I STILL like black pepper and mayonnaise sandwiches.
2. I like tomato, black pepper, (salt) and mayonnaise sandwiches but ONLY if the tomato is still warm from the vine.
3. I often eat one item at a time until completion from my plate, then move on to the next item, and then the next, etc.
4. With rare exception, I don't like my various food selections to touch (contaminate) each other (see item 3). Those divided cafeteria-type plates come in handy.
5. I DO like syrup from pancakes to get on my bacon or sausage.
6. I put butter on scrambled eggs when they are served to me.
7. I like whole-kernal corn between two halves of a biscuit.
8. I drink pickle juice and the left-over vinegar used for soaking fresh cucumber and onion slices.
9. If making a fried egg sandwich on cheap white bread, I like to smash the bread flat to increase the density before placing the egg upon it.
10. I dip my fries in mayonnaise.

OK, first off, tomato sandwiches aren't weird - everybody but me grew up on them around our house - but I will not eat a raw tomato. I will eat salsa, ketchup, tomato ANYTHING but not a sliced tomato. ( I am a disgrace to the family name! LOL)

I used to love it when my grandmother would make biscuits (best ones I have ever tasted!). She would use flour, buttermilk, crisco, etc....make a well in the flour to pour the buttermilk...."pinch" em off, place them in a shallow pan, and then take three fingers and dip them in bacon drippings and mash on top of each biscuit! I have the fondest memories of those biscuits having grannie's finger marks on top! ANYHOW, she would always reserve some "raw" biscuits for me, my brother and sister. I loved that raw biscuit dough! Daddy always told us it would give us worms! My, what I wouldn't give for that right now!

Also, vanilla ice cream with dry lime jello (right out of the powdered pack) sprinkled on top!
