Me? Weird??

The what-if prompt is weird things to eat and honestly I don’t think I eat anything weird! But here’s the actual weird thing: other people have often commented on my “weird” eating habits.

1. I’ve gone through many vegetarian phases, which lots of meat eaters find odd. Not sure why it’s strange to prefer a yummy baked potato and veggies over a hunk of rotting flesh, but whatevs. I’m not vegetarian at the moment and have enjoyed a few steak meals this year. Mmm dead cow.

2. With rare exceptions, I don’t like soup unless I’m sick. It’s just so salty and boring. Every bite tastes the same. Spoon after spoon after spoon. Yawnnnn.

3. I used to eat cottage cheese and salsa, and there is literally nothing strange about this when people always have cheese and/or sour cream with salsa in their tacos and burritos. But since no one thinks of cottage cheese as part of a Mexican dish, it’s me being “weird.” Um no. It’s me being innovative, hello. But I don’t eat this now because salsa = heartburn. Aging, bah.

4. I often save dessert for breakfast. Here’s the thing. Dessert is yummy, but it has the calories of an entire meal and I don’t want to eat an entire meal after I’ve eaten a meal. It’s not enjoyable. So, why not take it home and enjoy it the next day when I’m hungry again? Why is this weird? It’s not!

5. As I’ve said, I don’t like grapefruit or oranges. Apparently everyone else does. Goody, more for you!

6. I eat peanut butter on a spoon for a snack. Preferably creamy PB, but I will eat crunchy if that’s all there is. Again, I see nothing weird about this. I have gradually begun to appreciate a drop of honey on my PB ~ better than a c00kie! ~ though this is best done over the sink.

7. I love love love avocados πŸ₯‘! Mere words cannot do justice to their deliciousness. I can eat a whole one with salt & pepper sometimes for dinner with nothing else and be perfectly satisfied. I do admit this is probably out of the ordinary.

8. Unlike our gobblement, I’m not conflicted about eggs. I love them and they love me, no changing my mind every damn year. Now that I’m not eating so much bread, I’m making nomlettes more often, usually with cheese unless I forget to buy cheese. Sometimes I’ll make scrambled or poached eggs and veggies. Other times I’ll make hard-boiled eggs to bring to work with salad stuffs.

Obviously there’s nothing weird about liking eggs, but invariably there will be some troll who will say oh well if you are sad about the way cute cuddly animals are treated, what about poor egg-laying chickens? It’s true I wish all animals were treated better, and my heart ❀️ goes out to all the creatures, even the ones I eat, but [excuses]. The great thing about WordPress is the troll blocking feature, I always say. πŸ˜€

Happy weekend nomz!

  1. I’m an egg fan too, and I love cottage cheese and salsa, but I’ve never combined them into one treat…hmm…thanks for the fun food idea!

  3. What a great way to answer the whatif prompt. I’m with you in the peanut butter snack department even though I prefer crunchy. And the egg problem is easy to solve: get free range eggs 😁 we’ll get our own one day. They are great for food waste reduction. I have been vegetarian on and off all my life until I became a full time pescetarian (yes thats weird too 😁 I eat fish but no meat) in 2009. Great post!

  4. Avacodo is delicious.
    Peanut butter is best eaten on a spoon.
    I like spoon size shredded wheat
    straight out of the bag.

  5. I don’t like soup, either. I like to actually chew my food. I love sour cream and onion potato chips smashed up on a hamburger bun. And chocolate syrup on bananas!

  6. I recently discovered, quite by accident, (and just how is kind of a long story that I won’t go into here,) that Oreo Thins (the vanilla, or light colored, ones) with just a little grated Parmesan cheese on them are really good. So good, in fact, that they are dangerous. In fact, I rank them just behind movie theater popcorn with Junior Mints jammed in my mouth at the same time.

  7. Peanut butter on a spoon? Yes, for sure. I used to eat it on a spoon dipped in double cream when I lived in England. Now in Canada I cannot find any double cream but I still eat peanut butter on a spoon! Maybe we are both weird?

  8. I have to admit. I do not personally know anyone who eats avocado with salt and pepper on it’s own. But I’ve only just within the past ten years been exposed to the yumminess of the avocado and should perhaps try new things. Thus making me the weird one. πŸ€”

  11. Of course the great Aussie pie floater is a beauty – a single meat pie floated in a bowl of tomato soup is one variation. πŸ™‚

  12. Hah! I should steal this. Norway has lots of weird food. I even like some of it! But PB straight out of the jar? Totally not weird. Here’s mine: Huge pats of genuine butter stuck in the middle of each pancake in a stack, then I eat around until I get to that butter overload mixed with the maple syrup. Salty and sweet at once is delicious!

  15. Peanut butter on a spoon is literally dessert for me. I didn’t even begin eating peanut butter until probably five years and now, I keep a jar next to my bed at all times. I love it! I love hearing about other’s “weird” eating habits. I eat canned spinach and boiled eggs in a bowl and people think that is the oddest thing ever and I love it!!

  16. I see nothing wrong with salsa with cottage cheese. I like salsa on my omelet. I love pb & j sammies after a late night concert. I put catsup on my scrambled eggs.
