Asking for it

You know, the only reason I like reading articles like this is because they make me feel superior to others. It's petty, and I know it's petty.

I also know that, because of this ridiculous feeling of superiority, even though my first-born is a relatively adventurous eater, my second-born will refuse to eat anything but white bread (no crusts).

Oh my goodness. This article was written about my husband and me. To the T. I avoid cooked vegetables and most fruits; he spurns all condiments and most sauces, and he prefers that his food not be touching (he eats his food in a certain sequence as well).

Wow. At least I know we're not alone!

Dude. I am by no means an adventurous eater, but this article describes my husband so perfectly that I'm wondering if he is quoted in it under a pseudonym...

Someone in my family eats her food serially and it cannot touch on the plate....you know who.

I feel as you do; a certain superiority over people who eschew some foods (or whole categories). It is just stupid, and I can't help feeling that way about it.

I'm ashamed to admit it....I can't stand certain food by texture alone. Shrimp, for example....the taste, pretty good, the feel of it in my mouth - makes me want to gag.

APL - your triumph.... my husband.

Suzanne - your husband and Mr. Mac sound separated at birth! And Mr. Blue. Oy - maybe we should start a support group!

You know, I CALL myself a picky eater, but even I'm not this bad. There are some foods I *can't* have, such as all seafood. And then there are the things I just don't particularly like, like mushrooms and zucchini, and raw tomatoes.

I do typically eat one thing at a time, but I don't care if the items on the pate have touched, and I will occasionally eat bites of other things on my plate. I just like to savor the taste of each thing. My mother is a musher. If she has egss, grits, and bacon on her plate, she lumps them all together and eats it that way. That would just taste like mush to me. Blech.

I'm not what one would call a fearless, intrepid eater, but neither have I ever NOT eaten at a restaurant. (Barring the seafood thing, of course.)
