Weird Thing About When I Eat Pistachios. Odd Food Habits.



So here's the weird thing. I have no problem not cleaning my plate. Most of the time I eat a meal I won't finish everything and I have no problem throwing it out. I'll throw out 30 percent of my meal. No problem.

But then certain foods it kills me to throw them away. Pistachios are an example. When I'm eating pistachios and I get to the random ones that I can't open I'll put them to the side and then when I'm done I'll actually get a nut cracker. A FULL SIZED NUTCRACKER and open them and eat them.

I also can't waste beer, wine, ice cream, shrimp and steak among other things.

Anyone else have these issues?

I am the same when it comes to beer, or most drinks in general (alcoholic, that is... probably why I'm a fucking lush), and also meals- I rarely finish a plate. Except cereal- I usually finish cereal.
I don't eat pistachios. I love all other nuts, though. Mmmmmm.

I don't really like to waste any food, but it's way harder if it's pizza. In fact, I (probably - haven't actually heard it official fr the insurance company) totaled my mother in law's car last Thursday and I was sooooooooooooooo upset that I forgot to take my pizza out of the trunk before I got into the ambulance. In fact I was still bemoaning my lost pizza as of just yesterday.

Always finish what is on my plate - I think a product of growing up with parents who lived through the war... but drink, even though I don't go near alcohol now I still cannot get up until the glass is drained and I'm totally confused by people that don't do that... they are on a different quantum frequency to me

Ice cream : must finish ..

French fries eaten at a Friterie are my 30% throw away thing. It's smells so good when you walk past a Friterie ; it always makes you crave for more, MORE, M.O.R.E !!!
Not only do we order fries, special made sausages w/ extra onions and all, boulettes (meatballs) , cervela (also sausage), special made gravy. It's all so good and very bad for your health but it makes a person go very greedy ! My eyes are always bigger than my stomach.

(actually fries are a Belgian tradition, thé best fries are made here, don't have a clue why TH they are called French fries)

I always heard that the unopened pistachios were not ripe and weren't supposed to be eaten. Not that they were POISONOUS or anything, just that they weren't so good. That's why they are sorted in a drum that has little tiny hooks that supposed to catch the good ones and weed out the others.

Pretty sure I saw that on Modern Marvels: Nuts on the History Channel.

(Bet you Google that $#!T tonight!) :-)

Really Scope? Good. Now I won't feel guilty.

Dominica - leave it to the French.

I'm with you on beer, steak, and shrimp. Also boobs, because they rock and should never be wasted. Just saying.

No one has these problems, ya freak. I have a problem leaving things left over. Drink your name beer before you open another one.
