food particularities

an introduction to what a freak i am when it comes to food can be found here.

someone recently called me a freak again because of my eating habits. i realize that with a few foods, i'm very particular when it comes to the type or how a certain food is prepared. there is no flexibility from the list below. none, whatsoever. if it is not made in the way specified below, i will not eat it. i know it sounds a bit princess-like...and it is...but i don't think i'm asking too much, do you?

i'll only eat...

  • olives if they are spanish, green and with pits
  • tuna salad if it has celery in it
  • tacos with a hard shell
  • grilled cheese if it's made with chedddar
  • banana bread if it has nuts in it
  • peanut butter sandwiches made with preserves (no jelly)
  • milkshakes if they are black & white (vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup)
  • chocolate chip mint ice cream from baskin robbins (it's all in the chocolate shavings. i do not want to bite down on hard chocolate chunks in my ice cream. if they don't melt on my tongue within seconds, i want nothing to do with it)
  • pasta carbonara made the right way (egg yolk and cheese, NO CREAM, NO PEAS)

i'm sure there are more that i'm forgetting. what are yours??

You weirdo.

All I can think of is that I won't eat untoasted sliced bread.

That's not weird! Food is awsome and if it's not prepared correctly then what's the point?!

Mine is coffee with plain digestive biscuits or cookies of any kind to dip in - no biscuits? Don't offer me coffee!

i refuse to eat chunky peanut butter, i think grape jelly and bananas are generally gross, but i will eat them at gunpoint and you probably know about my *allergy* to liver.

Actually right there with you:

-Albacore Tuna sandwiches (and yes celery is a must). That "chunk light tuna" is a can of cat food.

-NO "fast food" for any reason EVER, but I will get take out from Whole Foods and Metropolitan Market.

-Sorbet only if it is Italian style Sorbetto. (We have a local company that makes it.)

The list goes on and on. I have quirks that pop up, and I didn't even realize it was an issue until someone mentions it.
