    but first I have to get a sweater bc I have a tank top on and I will get cold. I live for my snow cone machine, no it lives for me lol. In 3 years I have bought 2 machines and use them at least once a day, in most cases more than once. The lid now comes all the way off and I have to bounce it up and down a couple of times b4 it will shut off. It makes an awful noise the whole time it runs, you can here it all the way outside. I run this machine in the summer time no later than 3am on any given night with the voice of my oldest "are you serious?" and I just have to laugh. Sometimes it gets really hot, what are you to do? SNOW CONE!

    I have many food quirks. I can't have nothing touching anyone on my plate. Call my crazy----my kids do. I can't have eggs and syrup on the same plate. I will eat my pancakes first, rinse plate and go back for eggs, hash browns, and sausage.

    I love to watch other people eat when we go out. I have fun, my hubby however will put a little of everything on his fork. This to me is hilarious. I could never be that brave.

    what are your quirks--------I'm just saying. tell me please.

    My MIL is a dear - she always folds laundry when she comes to visit; likes to keep her hands busy. But I have to admit that later when everyone else is asleep, I have to refold because it makes me a little crazy when the corners don't match up perfectly... :roll:

    HA...this is a good subject...I can't gag down a pancake..but I love waffles!! DH says..they are the same thing!! WRONG...waffles have a totally different texture...I hate sausage...can't stand the smell of beer...there are probably more things that I can't think of right now...can't drink hot tea without sugar in it...BUT can't stand sweet iced tea...just want it fresh brewed with lemon in it....can't eat jelly...it's just too slimey to me..but I love apple butter & honey..
    DH won't drink milk if he eats any kind of fish? Actually he doesn't drink milk much at all...

    OK I am done...I think *L* crafty_linda_b

    your a red hatter!

    I can't drink milk either----it coats my throat and gags me. I can't do sushi, the smell turns my tummy.

    I cannot eat or even look at oysters. My dad always used to go to oyster bars and eat 2 or 3 dozen on the half shell. Ick. Can't eat sushi either. My son made me try it once. But I LOVE fresh pineapple. I could easily eat a whole one at one sitting. When I buy it I have to make myself make it last longer than one day.

    how does that work for you I couldn't---takes too much will power I don't have, I love the juice when it runs down your chin.

    If you were close to me I'd give you my snow cone machine. I won it at work and only used it like 2 times.

    Cold roast beef sandwiches gag me. Actually it goes past gag.

    LOL the responses are way too funny. Only becuase it made me think of things I couldnt or won't eat. No oysters or sushi for me..EVER...and wont eat most fishy things. NO Avacadoes ever. I rarely eat beef...love chicken and turkey but, veggies are my favorite of all foods. So many other things I cant even think of at this late hour.

    I have all kinds of quirks that drive my family nuts. I can't stand to see any thing unlevel. Like a light swith plate or a picture on the wall. Books must be placed on the shelf in order by height. I don't eat steak because I don't like how the texture of it feels in my mouth. When we go out to eat, I always eat the same dish. And the list goes on...

    Can't think of anything I won't eat and have never had food make me gag. I love to eat, sushi and oysters being among my favorites. I use to love cooking but can't be bothered so much these days. I still cook but nothing too involved.

    Still love ice cold milk too. My Dad use to say I was never weaned properly.

    I can't eat any meat that has gravy or sauces on them. My kids (all now married) say "Mom only eats naked meat", while they love A1 sauce, gravy, etc. ICK.
    I love cheeses but can't stand cottage cheese. Something about the lumpy texture...like milk gone bad.

    This is a very interesting thread for me since I love almost everything. But really I usually just "eat and get it over with" so I can spend more time quilting.

    I love banana bread but can't eat a banana! The texture is too much. I like my veggies steamed just a little so they're almost raw. I also can't eat pancakes but love waffles. Texture thing again. Drink hot tea with Splenda but cold tea with Sweet and Low.

    I don't have many food quirks. The only one I can think of is I don't like any kind of fish. Other than that call me pretty normal.

    Okay here is my "quirk".. I cannot eat Anything with PEAS!! Love tuna cassarole but have to pick out the peas. Can't eat veg soup with peas either. I can taste them a mile away...YUCK!
    I also cannot have my food touching each other on my plate. My DH mashes everything together just to spite me.

    I enjoy eating about any foods, including oysters and sushi. But, although I love cheese slices and I love lunch meat slices, I canít stand them together in the same sandwich. I donít know why.

    Wife doesnít like coconut in anything, and while she loves the aroma of coffee, she hates the taste.

    I hate mealy foods like grits, Cream of Wheat (to me they are the SAME THING!!) Delicious apples also have that mealy texture - yuck! I also hate coconut in things although I like the flavor, just not the texture. Hate to see a good cake or pie ruined with flaked coconut on it.

    Me too!

    Only thing I don't like no matter how it's cooked is liver. YUCK. I used to babysit kids who wanted liverwurst sandwiches everyday for lunch. Fine with me, as long as I don't have to eat it. :)

    I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to alcohol. Two sips of anything, no matter how gentle, will give me a huge headache. Another sip will have me pukin'. It used to bother me, but I'm just as fun sober and am a built-in designated driver. Thankfully hubby doesn't drink often 'cause I hate the smell of it now too.
