I eat dry pasta, straight from the bag, as a snack.

When alone I lick all the flavoring off of a Dorito before eating it.

I hate the taste of pickles on burgers, sandwiches or in anything really, but I love pickles on their own.

I'm right there with you.  I'll eat pickles right out of the jar but on a burger they taste nasty.

It's been a favorite snack of mine since the college days.

I keep the eggs in the carton arranged so it stays balanced.

How is that weird?  There's nothing worse than being bleary-eyed in the morning and dropping the egg carton when you're also juggling OJ, bacon, and butter, just because the carton was unbalanced.

that's weird because it endangers the operation.

i keep them all on one side of the carton, the side facing the entrance of the fridge, so that when i grab the carton, i have the bulk of the weight in my hand.

balancing means that you have a good deal of weight on the supported end of the carton.

unless you always pick up the carton from the middle, but that's just ludicrous.

Alone? I do that with almost every Dorito I eat, whether I'm alone or not. I also 'Peel' peanut M&M's, breaking the candy shell and taking it apart before I next eat he chocolate, then breaking the peanut in half, and if one side has the little knob on one end, breaking that off and eating it. Then I eat the peanut halves one at a time. Makes a small bag of peanut M&M's last forever...

I don't initially pick it up from the middle, but I swap hands and then stack the bacon and butter and jelly on top, while my other hand grabs the orange juice.  So balance is important

Applesauce on...never mind, if I told you I'd never be able to eat lunch or dinner with you again.

/But breakfast is okay. There's no applesauce at breakfast. There's nothing at breakfast to coat or mix with applesauce. That's what I said, so shaddup.

I put hot sauce on peanut butter sandwiches. My coworkers find this horrifying for some reason.

Unless it's with a date at a decent restaurant, I have a severe compulsion to read while I eat. I mean, read anything. The menu (but they always take those away), the back of a sweetener packet, those little table tents describing all the specialty drinks, etc.

As a kid, we'd hurry in from chores on Sunday night to watch 'Toast of the Town' (Ed Sullivan); 'Dinner' was always a bowl or two of popcorn, an apple - usually a Mac, and a finger of extra sharp cheddar - the kind that can almost walk off the table by itself. For 'dessert' my Dad and I would eat our last bowl of salted, buttered popcorn like cereal... with milk and sugar.  You had to eat it pretty quickly before it got too soggy. (I still eat a bowl like cereal 3-4x a year.)

My Dad liked to save his pork chop; pop it in the fridge for a couple hours, then eat it cold with a hunk of that sharp cheddar and cold homemade applesauce or apple pie (both had about triple the norm of cinnamon) from our Duchess apple trees. A '10-day' pickle - imagine the strongest sweet vinegar you can imagine - I've seen people's breathing shut down because they inhaled at the wrong time - was a bonus.
 /It is possible I'm old.


If you're looking for a more hipster, modern food idea:  Lately we've been making Tartine's Steamed Gingerbread Pudding recipe (we semi-cheat, instead of chopping up the fresh ginger extra fine which takes me forever because I'm inept, we buy the 'fresh' ginger from the grocery store in what looks like a mini-toothpaste tube. 1 tube = 1 batch. (Makes two meatloaf pan loaves). Let it set overnight; it's better the next day.

Then we use that as the base for a killer bread pudding -  per loaf: 1.5 cups of milk, 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 cup brown sugar, pinch of salt; we slip with the fresh nutmeg. Put it back in the loaf pan and bake 325 - checked at 30m and pulled around 35m - ymmv. Let rest 15m if you have the willpower to do so.

I have to leave the kitchen after my portion - I could eat the whole damned thing.

My habits are nothing I consider weird, but they have all been pointed out to me by other people.

I butter each pancake in the stack first. Then I cut the whole stack into a grid at once. Then I put on the syrup. I do it the same way every time.

I never bite into anything without looking at it first. What? I don't want any unpleasant surprises.

When eating crackers (like Ritz or saltines), before I bite into the cracker, I'm holding it between my thumb and forefinger and the middle finger taps the cracker to shake loose crumbs and salt off of it. I'm just doing it to reduce the amount of crumbs I make when I bite into the cracker. It has become completely unconscious now, I have been doing it for as long as I can remember. Apparently the tapping sound drives the husband crazy.

I see how many times I can bite an M&M or Skittle in half.
A banana has three natural sections lengthwise, so I pull it apart and eat it like that. I do this with plenty of other sectioned food, like carrots and cucumbers.
I try to separate a cracker into top and bottom sections and eat them separately.
I eat grapefruit like an orange, no sugar. Limes are OK, too.

I have a fun trick with corn on the cob: I pull the kernels out sideways with my bottom teeth so they come out whole, root and all. I have fascinated many people with this ability. Sometimes the corn is too soft to do this, which annoys me greatly.

I got ridiculed by my family when, I wanted extra onions, I ordered both slivered onions and diced onions at Sheetz. My brother still calls me Slice 'N' Dice because of this.

I have to eat one thing at a time on my plate:  if there is a piece of meat, some veggies and some potato, I have to start with the veggies, then eat the meat, then eat the potato or rice sides.  I can't switch back and forth from a bite of one item to a bit of another.  Used to tick my mother off till my aunt told her at least I'm finishing my dinner.

Exception: casseroles, pasta dishes, etc.  Only happens with distinct meats and sides.

I hate to bring this up in a food thread, but I do the same thing in the, er, facilities. It used to be newspapers; now it's an Android or laptop. But I always keep copies of my city's alt-weeklies even if out of date.

I will have the pickle put on my burger...then take it off before eating and discard it.

I do the same thing.  I also eat all of one thing before I go to the next thing.  For example, I eat all the fries first so they won't get cold, then I eat the burger.

I once drank straight out of the milk carton - felt guilty so I spit it back in.

i have to side with FrancoFile as I too carefully select eggs from about the carton taking into consideration the quantity being removed. if I dared to use the logic of one-side balancing i've no doubt my wonderful SO would manipulate the carton to ensure tragedy would strike just for the lulz. i do tend to pick up the carton primarily from the middle. i do 98% of the food prep, and thus the clean up, in our humble abode. my eggy method is part self preservation.

I can't eat without it being well lit. We usually eat in the living room and I need the light turned on so I can see my food. Otherwise you could eat anything

I do as well. We should all get together and go out for tapas.

As far as my quirks, I like my food to be dry and resist chewing a bit. Meat should be tough and chewy. Tender and juicy is awful. Sandwiches should be dry. I can't stand that greasy layer of butter or worse, mayonnaise. It'll put me right off the sandwich. Salt and pepper are enough for chips. No need for sauce or vinegar. I can't think of much that I like at all with a sauce. Curry. Spaghetti bolognaise. That's about the lot.

I flip past the first piece of bread in the loaf and grab the second piece, even if I've just watched somebody grab bread off the front of the loaf.

I just can't make myself take the first piece.

I do the same thing. I use them in that order also. Two from the right, two from the left. One from the right,
one from the opposite side on the left. It's partly a balance thing and partly because it just irritates me
otherwise.

Boogers is the first thing I thought of, someone beat me to it.

I blow on iced drinks to feel the coolness on my forehead.
