I hate my food touching each other. I need it separated in to little piles that don't touch each other. I can't have a few peas mixed in to the mashed potato.

I also hate it when they put meat on top of vegies or chips. I don't want the food underneath it mushed or squashed.

I can't eat anything that has touched a cooked egg. Yuck!

The only proper dipping sauce for wings is bleu cheese dressing, NOT ranch.

The spice must flow.
Vegetables are a must. Meat and bread are optional.
Leftovers are for the dog.

I hate having a fried egg on the same plate as a portion of baked beans. To me it resembles a car crash on a plate

No coffee on flights. It`s a diuretic and the air in the plane is already on the dry side.

No orange vegetables in dessert pastries, e.g. carrot cake and pumpkin pie. Raw, roasted or steamed carrots are okay. pumpkin ravioli is fine.

Eggs must be hard boiled or scrambled, never soft boiled or sunny side up.

Strawberries may be fresh but not made into strawberry ice cream.

Garlic - the more the merrier, even better if everyone else is having it, especially when travelling since it keeps nasty colds at bay.

No shrimp. It`s a taste + texture thing. However, lobster tail is okay. Texture is similar but tastes different. Shrimp chips are yummy too.

No fish with tiny little bones that can stab you in the mouth or get stuck in your throat. Fillets okay. If whole fish, I go for the cheeks.

Ketchup on a hot dog is okay for the occasional guilty pleasure. I stock neither ketchup nor hot dog wieners at home.

Chicken or turkey thighs any day over breast meat.

Since this thread seems to have been resurrected, I'll play.

No ketchup on french fries.
No mayonnaise on anything. EVER!
No fish from a can. Fish should come directly from the ocean, lake, or river and into the frying pan or oven.
No raw tomatoes.
No olives - I try to like them, but I can't.
No peanuts/peanut butter except in savory foods like satay or kung pao chicken.
No lima beans or okra.
No offal. Yes, I know the cheffy people love offal, but not me.
No rabbit or cuy (guinea pig). If it can be may pet, it cannot be food.
And now that I have been in the company of Brits for several years, I have to say that this business of beans in tomato sauce for breakfast or on toast or on baked potatoes is just absurd. The same goes for chip butties. Who makes a sandwich with french fries as the filling? It's just a carbohydrate and fat sandwich.

And a few drinking rules:
Never ever drink any tequila that comes in a plastic bottle.
If you must mix lemonade or tomato juice with beer, you are drinking some nasty beer. Beer should not be mixed with anything.

I don't drink tequila, but have seen rum in plastic bottles. For me, I'd modify the rule to say:

Liquor that comes in plastic bottles must not be drunk straight.

Never eat anything on a business occasion at a restaurant
that is going to be messy with the end result me looking like
a 5-year old after a chocolate ingestion fest.

Never eat anything before or during a trip that I think will
potentially make me sick.

Sandwiches need to have the bread buttered!!!

Mrs BamaVol would modify your #2 to read "No cooked green peppers".

To your #8, may I shout "Amen".

I agree if they're good quality wings. Otherwise, Bleu Cheese em up.

Don't question anything. Just eat it.

Also, don't mix vodka and beer at the same time if you don't remember the beer-liquor rule. That's how you end up forgetting 6 hours of your day.

Maybe because I grew up with it, but canned mackerel in tomato sauce is the bomb; fry it with garlic and you're set. Also, 'Spanish Sardines' soaked in oil.

No eating pets is in agreement with me and same with no mayo.

The offal thing I disagree with, but okra is disgusting.
