When I dump a bag of cookies in the cookie jar, I eat the broken cookies and pieces first, until finally just the perfect whole ones are left Then I eat them

When it comes to goofy food habits, most of these seem really common and not that odd.

I guess that I was expecting a 'what I eat' and 'how I eat' when I am alone kind of thread.
Here are some of mine:

-When no one is looking, I lick my plate. I'll never do it if someone is watching, but I will scan the room and wait for the optimal moment when all eyes are elsewhere.

-Most things that I eat need to be dipped into some sort of sauce or condomment. I am not sure how this started, but the idea of eating food 'bare' seems weird to me.

-I eat almost everything with hot sauce. This is in addition with the above. The hotter the better.

-I don't trust people who don't eat cilantro.

-I drink coffee black, but add milk and honey to tea.

-I drink ALL beverages at room temperature. For some reason, this drives people nuts.

-In fact, I prefer to eat most food at room temperature. Why people like to burn the *#$% out of their mouths eating piping hot pizza, for example, is beyond me. But hey, it's your mouth.

-When I eat ramen, I eat it with a spoon.

-I wipe my mouth after every bite.

-I absolutely despise it when someone, anyone, is watching me eat.


That is enough for now.

Awesome thread!

-Peeling the skin off the grape in strips.
-Eating around the carrot until it's just the core.
-Biting off a top portion of a peanut M & M, but not biting off any of the peanut itself. Then I'll eat the M & M.
-Eating the caramel off of the Twix first, then the cookie part.
-I like lettuce but I can't eat it on anything hot, like oven-baked subs or burgers . It grosses me out.
-If I eat breadsticks, I like to mix pizza sauce and ranch (or even better, blue cheese dressing) together. This really weirds people out.
-Before I eat a green olive, I like to eat the pimento out of it first.
-I also hate when other people watch me eat.

My room mate left beans and weenies on the counter when I woke up. There's maybe half a serving of it left. She might throw it away, and I guess if she's paying for it, she can do whatever she likes, but I hate to see food wasted. Anyway, when I eat beans and weenies, I dig out the weenies and eat them first.

I like to eat cold pumpkin pie off a napkin. Slice a nice piece and then eat it like it was a slice of pizza. (No whipped cream this way. Just naked.)

Corn on the cob: Take a bit here, spin the cob and take a bite there. Spin the cob and take another random bite. And when I'm all done I like to suck on the buttery, salty cob. (It took a lot for me to admit that!)

I'll think of what else I do because to me it's just NORMAL.

I do the same with raw carrots and I eat corn one row at a time.

But the weirdest thing I do is suck dem heads and pinch den tails. Gota love hot boiled crawfish, now get your minds out the gutters.
