    Lemon juice and granulated sugar on pancakes

    Salsa on eggs

    Vegemite, lettuce and mayonnaise sandwiches

    Orange juice on my cereal instead of milk

    This is how I was brought up to eat pancakes/crepes, and a common topping at creperies..it's delicious!

    I love it and never thought it was weird until I went to the USA and everyone freaked out!

    Haha.... Perhaps they are the weird ones :)

    My European friends freaked out at Fairy Bread. They couldn't understand the amazingness of 100s & 1000s on buttered white bread! :p

    Haahaa yeah, no one really gets fairy bread but us.
    I love fairy bread. Sprinkles don't taste the same here in Canada.

    What's fairy bread?

    White bread, buttered and sprinkled with 100s and 1000s (cake sprinkles).

    Burnt toast (very very burnt) with raw carrot!

    Used to love this as a kid, later found out I had a cousin in Scotland who did the same thing, neither of us had got it via a parent. Weird!

    This is similar to something we eat in Holland. A typical kids breakfast is bread, butter, and chocolate sprinkles. To celebrate new babies we eat buttered rusks with pink or blue cake sprinkles, depending on gender of the baby.

    I crave salted green apples after workouts

    I love salt on chilled grapefruit and green apples. Also pink salt on watermelon. I don't think it is weird at all :)

    Before this WOE, I used to like to mix baked beans and potato salad together and make a meal of it.

    Omelete with jam and cinnamon.. yum
  • babyluthibabyluthi Posts: 201Member Member Posts: 201Member Member
    tasty cheese sandwiches with jam (jello)
    steak must be well done.. if I order in a restaurant I say "Steak well done, brown on the outside, brown on the inside, no blood no pink no black please"
    ALL meat must be well done.
    I don't like meat that has been bastardized with any kind of sauce that you marinate with...I want it to taste like meat.
    I hate all deli meat
    Kiwifruit with the skin on
    Eggs can only be boiled,scrambled or poached.. hard like rubber, if I order out I ask for "eggs well done, yolk and whites hard, no slime nothing runny, inside yellow and dry..think rubber eggs please"
    I can't eat without drinking something ie: water..I feel sick after a few bites...my mother is the same.
    I put my toast in the fridge to make sure it is stone cold.
    I like my porridge to still have oat lumps in it.. my mother likes hers smooth as custard...she lives with us and is 90.
    I hate all berries(except if jam ((Jello)) or jelly)
    I don't like lumps in my jam, I avoid the lump bits.
    I don't like smooth yoghurt, I need lumps in it.
    I used to hate all nuts but have learned to like raw almonds and pistachios in small amounts (6)
    I like my vegemite spread on thick.
    I don't like to eat only one texture in a meal...I can do two, but prefer three, I mix the textures on my fork then eat.
    I don't like sweet french toast.. It is savoury with salt and pepper. My SO who is Canadian prefers them sweet with sugar.
    ThaT IS PROBABLY ENOUGH FOR NOW;)
    oops

    This is not strange in the UK. They serve this at the cantine at work.

    I like savoury french toast too. If you count ketchup as a savoury condiment despite the sugar content.

    I pull burgers apart and eat each ingredient individually. I remove the topping from the pizza and eat the bottom first them the topping, and I refuse to eat store made sandwiches.

    I do the same thing, eat the crust first starting from the outside. No idea why. Always been doing it this way.

    I like to torta (almost) all of my leftovers.

    I'd like to believe that there's 2 types of torta: One is where you put the ingredient/s in an omelette; the other is chopping up the ingredients into small/manageable pieces and then adding eggs into it, until you have a mix of scrambled eggs + what leftover ingredient you used.

    Depending on the ingredient used, I typically add 2-3 eggs in it then eat my torta while it's hot!

    As I was dipping my toast with peanut butter in my coffee, I was wondering if anyone else has any weird things they do with food that others would raise an eyebrow at.

    Another one for me is for when I eat chicken wings. I CLEAN them. Like to the bone. Crunchy bits and all. I don't always do that around others, as the crunching is a bit... off putting (my mother does it too, and man it's loud).

    Almost everything you mentioned is normal for a Caribbean/West Indian person. LOL. Bread (or casava) and PB dipped into hot chocolate/or coffee is great... You’d get scolded for leaving anything on the bones (and no one would flinch if you sucked them dry! LOL)... Dinner foods are what we consider appropriate breakfast foods... You’re not as weird of an eater as you think! 😄

    Also, I used to dip fries in milkshakes so the fry/ice cream combo seems normal to me too- but that stems from my American side! Hahaha

    I do the same with the chicken wings! Sometimes I'm guilty of sucking the marrow out of the bone.
