    That's Not Why I'm Weird

    People think I'm weird because I don't want my food getting mixed up. They tell me its all going in my stomach. Well...I like to enjoy all the different foods. It all has a distinct flavour of its own and when its mixed up I can't taste the individual goodness.

    Great Selection of Food For the Logo!

    Thank you for the logo, that's my kinda cookin!  But, yeah, I hate mixing my food up.  I like to have the tastes separate.  I really hate when I have mashed potatoes or something and some vegetable juice gets in it, ick.

    Little Compartments

    I hate it when my food gets mixed together on my plate too. I think it's because of my OCD. There is just something about it I can't stand. I think it's the way it tates. But, If I could, I think would make plates with little compartments like the plates we...

    When I Was Little.

    I used to make my mom put the main dish, side dish, and salad all on separate plates. It was a real pain for her at Thanksgiving! I would get really upset if anything came into contact with my cranberry sauce!

    The Foods Must Not Touch One Another, Or "don't Cross The Streams."

    I hate it when the foods on my plate touch one another. I have had this extreme dislike since I was a child and honestly would be happiest with those divider plates they have in cafeterias or give to little kids. TV dinners were A-OK with me because they were perfectly segregated...

    Always Been That Way

    I don't know why but I always have been like that, and still eat my food one item at a time. My brother on the other hand would mix his food into a big disgusting blob and eat it.

    I Thought I Was The Only One

    I spend half my meal making sure that the peas do not roll over into the mashed potatoes.  I keep dragging my fork between them to amke sure there are no "stragglers!"  I can't let a piece of chicken touch the rice... I am just *so* relieved that there are others...

    I want to experience each food by itself. SOmetimes I like combining things on my fork or spoon, but I want that to be my choice. It's gross when the plate does it for me.

    People always tell me it doesn't matter because it all gets mixed together in my stomach, but my stomach doesn't have tastebuds! Mixed food tastes terrible to me!

    It's Always the Peas!!

    I love peas, they taste great, I dont eat much variety of veg so peas are pretty important..... But OMG why do the tiny little balls always insist on rolling under everything else on the plate???  I swear I spend about half of my food time hunting them down and stabbing...

    Picky? Me?

    I may be a little to picky with my food, I'll admit. One of my pet food peeves is different food touching. Especially if food that should not have gravy on it touches the gravy, or people putting unnecessarily oil on food. Like vegetables. I’m really picky about what can have...

    OMG!! I Can't Believe There's a Group For This Neurosis of Mine!!

    Some people make fun of me for it, but I just can't help it!!  I absolutely HATE it when my food even touches on my plate.  I know it's the same food, and get so sick of being told "it all goes down the same way"!!!  It really grosses me out and I just...

    Food Does Not Touch!!!

    Never ever ever, does food touch on my plate. It drives me insane. Everything must be separated before I can eat it. If a section of the rice and a section of the broccoli touch, I refuse to eat the sections that touched. Even when I put sauce or something of some food, it can...
