I'll Give You a Topic... weirdness. (Inspired by a FB thread.)

I will not eat leftovers that are more than 24 hours old. And in general, will avoid leftovers like the plague unless it's something really, really good. Like pizza.

I have to have all meat well done. And by that, I mean "nearly burnt". If I am a guest at someone's house, I can choke down a (very) slightly pink steak if I don't think about it too much. I would rather eat a black hamburger than a pink one.

If I find a colored vein in my chicken, I completely lose my appetite. For about a week. There was a vein in my BK chicken sandwich once, and I didn't have another one for two years. And I love the BK chicken sandwiches. But the offending sandwich was immediately spit out and thrown away. Meal over.

So what are your food quirks?

I love strawberries, but I cannot stand anything "Strawberry Flavored." No one has ever made anything strawberry flavored that was not awful.

Yogurt makes me gag. I just can't eat the stuff.

I love nuts. I hate anything with nuts in it. No nuts in my ice cream, no nuts in chocolate or brownies or fudge, and absolutely no nuts in chocolate chip cookies--EVER.

I'll try damn near anything. I may not like it in the end, but I'll try it. In fact, I can't think of something I won't try, provided it's safe to eat. That is, I won't eat any ol' pile of goo I come across (I'm not a dog for cryin' out loud!), but I will share a plate of something with another person, unless it smells really bad...which kinda goes without saying. You're missing out on something if you don't eat leftovers; sometimes the tastes increase and blend into something even more yummy.

Don't get me started on weirdos who eat their beef well-done.

Hate onion. HATE IT. If I run into a piece of onion in my pizza, I will retch. I'll gamely proceed with the pizza at that point, but great suspicion, which pretty much ruins the rest of it for me.

I can tolerate onion that's been thoroughly cooked, but if it still has some texture to it, it's totally gross and disgusting.

With one exception: salsa. I'm absolutely fine with onion in salsa, though pico de gallo is a little too overwhelming.
