My Dirty Little Food Secret

Jalapeno or Russian Raisin bagel anyone? Some flavored coffee to go with it? How about a white pizza with eggplant?

Any of the above are good with me; I'm no purist when it comes to bagels, coffee, or pizza or many other foods. But I do firmly believe everyone has at least one food we don't want adulterated in any way from it's original, pure iteration.

Now we all know people who are purists or have lots rules about foods. I have one friend who won't eat a cheeseburger unless it's American cheese, another who has had pizza for dinner every Friday for the past 40 years. Others are picky beyond reason; some eat the same thing day-in, day-out; some eschew any ethnic foods, except Italian. But even the most catholic eaters have a dirty little secret - one food they will not tolerate if tampered with. What is yours? Come on, own up. What, you're waiting for my confession?

Ok, that's fair. Don't mess with my pancakes - I don't want fruit in them, chocolate on them, hell I don't even want syrup. Happy now? 


  1. Ha. This post made me laugh out loud.

  2. Great post. I thought I was the only one who had "rules" or "secrets" about food and dining. I know so many people with little quirks I could write my own posting full of amusing and entertaining examples. It is nice to see someone else shares my feelings about anything incorporated into my pancakes. Nothing in mine either. Ever. I also prefer mine thin, so I can roll them up and eat them without syrup. But that is not my biggest food "secret".....that would be my unwavering devotion to my store brand mayonnaise. I can only use Hellman's and I will not substitute with any other brand. (Don't tell anyone.)
