Does preferring a nice meal that is properly cooked make you a food snob or picky? Well according to my fiancee, sorry honey lol, I'm picky.
I don't see it as picky! There are a few things I don't like to eat peas and beans, never have and never will. I dont mind beans in things like soup
but peas no way no how! I don't see how those two things make me picky. I also don't see how expecting a meal to be cooked properly makes me picky.
Now the next thing is when food is wrong I WILL say something whereas my fiancee would rather I shut it and eat it. Well why would I eat something
that isn't cooked right that i have to pay for? I won't do it. As someone who cooks I expect a meal that i pay for to be up to par and not one i
have to send back. I don't have to do it often but if my meal is wrong I will let you know but politely unless you continue to screw it up then I'm
not so pleasant
Example. There is a local place I have been to a few times with my fiancee and his mom for breakfast well they just suck tbh. The service is bad and
the food isn't great and it's always wrong. For example I ordered an omelette and asked for no onion and it came with onion, BOTH times I sent it
back it had onion in it. I just kept it and gave up at that point. I don't mind onion but while pregnant they make me have bad heartburn so I try not
to eat them. I should just stick to saying I'm allergic, that seems to work lol. Then the other day I went there with his mom and I ordered an
omelette that comes with bacon well I get the omelette and start eating it only to realize there is NO bacon in it! Ugh can you imagine no bacon :O I
asked for a side of bacon instead since the meal is suppose to have bacon in it! I don't know why they like this place and I will never go back
again. If it is suggested I will just opt out! I have not been one time where they didn't mess up the meal. I ask for my omelette to be cooked twice
since I don't like runny omelette's! Got sick as a kid on eggs so runny makes me gag, well each time it's runny so again yea not going back there.
I prefer this one local diner that looks just like a typical small town diner. I love it. They have nice people, good food and I love the oldies on
the radio they play! They know how to make an omelette and they are so fast it's unreal! That place is always hopping with business and I've never
in 4 yrs had to send my meal back! I tip them 10 bucks each time I go because I love it there and they make the best mexican omelette mmmmm.
Now according to my fiancee these preferences makes me picky! I'd like to know how expecting a meal to come the way it should is picky?! I told him
that if he cooked like I did he would understand. It isnt anything against him it's just I feel that if he was a cook he would see my point of view.
Funny thing is when he said I'm picky to my mom she said EXACTLY what I said which made me laugh. I will try any food but there are the few that I
just don't prefer, that doesn't make me picky.
There are a few and I mean few places I'll eat at locally and most are locally owned places. We have one local Italian place I just friggin love!
They are pretty good and I haven't had a bad meal there since I started eating there.
You will not see me at places like the Olive Garden, unless it's a group thing and I had no say in the location. I don't like chain restaurants
really. I do like Longhorn Steakhouse. I went there while my fiancee was home and cleaned up at lunch time. I could so go back and do that all over
again. Their onion petals kill The Outbacks Bloomin Onion and their zesty fiesta shrimp appetizer is soooo darn good! I am not sure if that is the
name but it's something like that lol. I use to love Chili's but they changed the one thing I ordered there way too much that it's just not the
same anymore. I can make cajun chicken pasta at home so why go out for it and pay?! At least I got my cast iron skillet from them before I stopped
going there. I use to ask for one of the skillets the fajita's came out on all the time. One day the manager brought our check out and one of the
skillets! My friend that I was with just started laughing. He knew I always asked for one lol I swear he made my day. It works great too!
What do you consider to be a picky eater?
For me it's the type that has to alter everything they order and I am just not like that. I might ask you to add something extra, usually mushrooms
lol but I dont' go on with a list of changes.
My fiancee says it's hard to go out with me because I'm picky with where I eat. I don't see it as picky just selective. There are a few places
I'll eat at but I honestly would rather make the meal myself at home so I know I wont go to bed hungry or have to go home and make something to eat
because dinner didn't fill me up.
So tell me your food horror stories!
