Everyone has their own way to eat an Oreo. What about other foods?

For years, my son has given me a hard time for the way I eat a pizza. I use a fork to eat the top off, and leave the bottom to dry out and eat it like a cracker later. He doesn't approve. Just now, he came and told me he does it the other way around. He peels the bottom off and eats it while he waits for the top to cool, then he eats the top.

What food do you eat that makes folks go, "what are you doing?"

If there is something I'm not too fond of on my plate I eat it all first to get it out of the way so I can enjoy the rest of my meal.

That’s funny mander! My niece eats corn on the cob vertically. It’s a scene

I like to fold up pancakes and eat them by hand. (No syrup. No butter. Just plain.) And I also like to squeeze a good piece of bread together into a little roll before I eat it. :)

Here in NZ we were taught to eat peas on the top curved surface of forks. You just squash them on to it. My sister still does but I eat them like with a spoon with the concave side up. Each to his own!

I do that too! I like to mash bread in my fist until its a warm dense ball, almost like dough again.

I eat pizza with a knife and fork, with each bite dipped in ranch dressing. 

I don't eat ice cream frozen.  I let it melt in my bowl and scoop up the liquid like soup. 

And I never let any of my foods touch each other on the plate.

My preferred pizza approach is fork with Caesar dressing. :)

Same here - get the grief out of the way ASAP.  My son does something similar, leaving the best thing on the plate till very last.  He still hasn't grasped the concept that sometimes he gets too full,to empty his plate and it's usually his favourite thing on their that goes to the dog smiley

I fold my pizza slices. The kids think I'm nuts. They all eat theirs flat open. Where did they learn to do that? My father ate his with a knife and fork.

Moi aussi! I go in order of least favourite first, and so on, to the favourite. Sometimes I'll alternate favourites, such as turkey and dressing. If something is really unpleasant I'll combine it with something else - broccoli and potato, for example. to lessen the taste of the broccoli.

Pizza? At home, eaten by hand, in a restaurant, with knife and fork.

This has apparently been a subject of intense debate amongst those people who have nothing better to do with their time.  The "experts" (not sure what credentials are required to make one an expert on pizza) claim that the proper way to eat pizza is to fold each slice in half, almost like a taco.  And it makes a lot of sense in terms of keeping the toppings contained, as well as getting it into one's mouth with minimal mess.  They also claim the correct way to eat a traditional Neapolitan style pizza is to never slice the pizza at all: you just fold the entire pizza in half, then in half again, so it's one big quarter-round folded meal.

Of course, they all approach it in terms of traditional methods for New Yorkers, Italians, and whatnot.  I'm neither Italian nor New Yorker, so I eat it however I darn well please.

Re: vegetables. I hated veg growing up. My mom, who was a terrific Baker of pies and cookies, boiled the H**** out of vegetables, and they all tasted like cardboard...I think I liked cardboard better.

My wife, on the other hand, cooks veggies minimal, and they are delicious :-). As an adult, I eat a lot of raw veggies, like brocoli and califlower, two that I did not like at all (cooked to death) growing up. Raw veggies, or Chinese cooked style (brief in a wok) work for me.

The Bozeman Food Coop has the greatest salad bar in the world, or at least the parts of the world I've seen (not that much, really). It's all organic, and if you've never tasted real organic veg, you would not believe how much better they taste than the non-organic veg. I eat them cause they taste better -- the "better for you" idea is a bonus (and maybe not that true, but I like to think so).

One of the things that kills most restaurant salads for me is the preservative that they put on the vegs so that their salads "last all day." A couple musicians who used to work in restaurants told me about that preservative stuff. It tastes yucky, to me, especially compared to fresh Coop veg. If you've had restaurant salads that taste bitter, or "chemical-ly", it's possible those bad tastes are due to the preservative.

If you have kids or grandkids who don't eat their vegetables, let them try raw veggies.  I wish my caregivers had done that.

We ordered from our 2 for 1 pizza joint last weekend. She wanted Hawaiian & I got a meat lovers.

We do it maybe 2 times a year.

I know some people have a problem with pineapple as a topping but it was invented in Canada.

I have never tried or seen anyone eat pizza with ranch dressing before .

Our local pizzaria offers either ranch or red sauce to accompany their calzones.

Does Oreo technique qualify as a transferrable skill to British custard cream biscuits?

And yes I do know our biscuits are your dumplings and your cookies are our biscuits.
