    I have come across some odd eating habits in others, and I have my own as well (not to mention the countless other oddities that I accomplish in everyday life).

    I thought it would be interesting to discuss such oddities in our habits, particularly in eating, and fellowship in our peculiarities.


    1) Three Muskateers - I eat the chocolate off the outside then eat the filling. (I do the same with Klondike bars)

    2) Arby's Roast Beef and Cheddar - I prefer them cold. I will buy them and eat them a couple of hours into refrigeration.

    3) Little Debbies and NutriGrain Bars - Frozen.

    4) Frozen Waffles - Frozen with Peanut Butter on them.


    That should be good enough to start this topic....

    * I have a buddy who like mustard on his watermelon. This same guy eats his steaks raw... well, warm on each side, but if it starts to turn from red, it is overdone.


    MODS - (I wasn't sure what forum to put this under... so if it needs to be moved, please feel free to do so. I thought maybe under games... but wasn't sure.)

    Tonight, wanting something for "dessert" (about 3 hours after I had supper) I got some cake mix and just mixed it up with water in a bowl and microwaved it, then shoved it down my trap. I do that because I don't want to make a 'whole' cake, with nobody else to eat any of it.

    Ever since her second pregnancy some 23 years ago, she has always boiled her pepsi. I remember on our 33rd birthday, we went to Shoneys for breakfast and she ordered pepsi and had the waitress zap it in the microwave!

    I can't say how it tastes, as I have not braved that mountain myself.

    I know what waffles, peanut butter, and NutriGrain bars are, and if "Cheddar" means the cheese originally made in the place of that name in Somerset, England, I know that, too.

    But the only "Three Musketeers" I know are those in the book by Alexander Dumas and I have no idea what might make "Arby's" different to any other roast beef. I seem to remember that Klondike had something to do with gold mining, so perhaps "Klondike bars" are sweets (candy) made to look like gold ingots? No idea what "Little Debbies" might be. :)

    To translate:

    3 Muskateers - Chocolate Candy Bar

    Arby's - Fast food, roast beef sandwiches being a signature item

    Klondike - Vanilla Ice Cream Squares, covered in a hard chocolate

    Little Debbies - Individually Packaged cakes and sweets

    Notice his location. Foods, the terms for certain foods, brands, and establishments are typically relative to locale.

    Good point.
    My first thought was he eats very healthy and doesn't watch much tv, so he wasn't familiar with this type of food.

    Junk Food Junkie
    Larry Groce
    Written by Larry Groce

    Released by Warner Bros. Records in 1976; playing time, 3:03
    Was Groce's only hit, making it as high as #9 on the _Billboard_ Hot 100


    You know I love that organic cooking
    I always ask for more
    And they call me Mr. Natural
    On down to the health food store
    I only eat good sea salt
    White sugar don't touch my lips
    And my friends is always
    Begging me to take them
    On macrobiotic trips
    Yes, they are
    Oh, but at night I stake out my strongbox
    That I keep under lock and key
    And I take it off to my closet
    Where nobody else can see
    I open that door so slowly
    Take a peek up north and south
    Then I pull out a Hostess Twinkie
    And I pop it in my mouth
    Yeah, in the daytime I'm Mr. Natural
    Just as healthy as I can be
    But at night I'm a junk food junkie
    Good lord have pity on me
    Well, at lunchtime
    You can always find me
    At the Whole Earth Vitamin Bar
    Just sucking on my plain white yogurt
    From my hand thrown pottery jar
    And sippin' a little hand pressed cider
    With a carrot stick for dessert
    And wiping my face
    In a natural way
    On the sleeve of my peasant shirt
    Oh yeah
    Ah, but when that clock strikes midnight
    And I'm all by myself
    I work that combination
    On my secret hideaway shelf
    And I pull out some Fritos corn chips
    Dr. Pepper and an Ole Moon Pie
    Then I sit back in glorious expectation
    Of a genuine junk food high
    Oh yeah, in the daytime I'm Mr. Natural
    Just as healthy as I can be
    But at night I'm a junk food junkie
    Good lord have pity on me
    My friends down at the commune
    They think I'm pretty neat
    Oh, I don't know nothing about arts and crafts
    But I give 'em all something to eat
    I'm a friend to old Euell Gibbons
    And I only eat homegrown spice
    I got a John Keats autographed Grecian urn
    Filled up with my brown rice
    Yes, I do
    Oh, but folks lately I have been spotted
    With a Big Mac on my breath
    Stumbling into a Colonel Sanders
    With a face as white as death
    I'm afraid someday they'll find me
    Just stretched out on my bed
    With a handful of Pringles Potato Chips
    And a Ding Dong by my head
    In the daytime I'm Mr. Natural
    Just as healthy as I can be
    But at night I'm a junk food junkie
    Good lord have pity on me

    Sort of, if for "cave" you read "semi-detached bungalow", but his "cave", unlike those of Fred & Wilma and Barney & Betty, is not in America, but in England, where as far as I know, "Little Debbies" etc. are still unknown. (We do have KFC, McDonalds, and in some towns and cities, we can drink coffee at a "Starbucks" :) )

    My kids put catsup on their hot dogs. That should be illegal.

    I saw someone put BBQ sauce on their pizza (yech).

    I put vinegar in and on a lot of things. I add lots of vinegar to a bowl of lentils, put it on fries, etc.

    I try to stay away from junk food and candy, but if I happen to get "peeps" (marshmallow chicks, etc.), I'll eat them if they're really stale and chewy.

    cottage cheese topped with pineapple chunks and - now we get to the fun part! - red pepper flakes. Lots of 'em!

    semi-burnt scrambled eggs with maple syrup. Yummy!!!! Sometimes lean bacon pieces with maple syrup. Even yummier!!!

    hot grits with lots of black pepper and - you guessed it - maple syrup!

    Hotdogs without catsup is American activities :laugh:
    ---
    My father introduced me to the following:

    Two soft boiled eggs dumped into a drinking glass.
    Add salt, miracle whip and about ten soda crackers broken up.
    Stir and enjoy :p

    He used a little Shedd's meat sauce but cannot find that any more.

    My Dad, now in Heaven, loved catsup on EVERYTHING! Once he stayed at someone's house where the kids found out his preference. At breakfast, sure enough, there was a catsup bottle by his plate. So he smothered his scrambled eggs in it and wolfed it down!

    As for me, I like my salmon raw, my grits wet, my rice sticky, my okra boiled or fried, and my ramen with lots of butter and corn. Yum! But I will always reject squid on pizza, a Japanese favorite.

    woohhooo!

    I hardly ever find anyone else who likes those!

    Used to have them almost every day in my lunch for school. :)
