Not really, this one is a simple meal for two for example. It's not just about placement, but quantity plays a part.

Some excerpts from another thread:
Not so much a particular way, but in order. I always eat the protein first then veg then if I have room starch. Even with stew or soups I always eat the meat part first.

I hate if my food touches, though. If the veg touches the potatoes or if gravy goes on anything other than meat - . And the only way I can eat a mixed meal like stew is if I make it so I know exactly what's in it. My sister says that I'm fussy for a fat chick

I do the same with stew, I will eat the meat, then pick at potatoes, then done. I won't each the entire bowl of stew, and wont touch cooked carrots.

Soups I generally wont eat, chicken noodle being the exception but not canned kind, will eat the chunks of chicken then a few noodles, never much of the liquid.

I don't like my foods to touch, and don't want any gravy or sauces on my food.



I cooked a turkey roast yesterday for dinner, took about 2 hours cooking, I didn't make any sides, by the time the thing was done, I wasn't hungry anymore, so I didn't even eat any of it....lol

I hate cooking, the time spent on cooking its not something I enjoy, easier to eat a bowl of cereal.

Good grief I thought I was a fussy eater.

I am a meat and 2 veg person. Don’t like curry, pasta, Mexican, spicy food. I will not eat chopped up meat...I want to know exactly what part of the animal I am eating.

No preference as to placement of food or order of eating. The only thing I find off-putting is if everything's plonked on the plate on top of each other, but even then I'll eat it if I like it

I prefer to eat my food while it is still hot, not lukewarm.

And In the cupboard you have cups and mugs with the handles all facing the same way

You’ve been snooping around my kitchen?


The dishwasher has to be stacked ‘properly’ aka my way. Plates nicely lined up according to size. Cups on one side, mugs separate, glasses on the opposite side. Cutlery in groups of same. That’s perfectly normal isn’t it?

I won’t mention how I organize clothes, shoes, bags etc.

I remembered an old thread about preferences for tea and coffee - well, general quirks really - where I mentioned my fussiness for the cup I would drink from. I tracked it down and your comment was in there.

I looked for something on that on my local English language news outlet, nada. Not been there for many years, it's on the list, assuming we get a summer this year.

You have to commit to more than a few hours or they'll not let you in. Or maybe they let you in but like Hotel California you can never leave.
