The least adventurous eater you ever met

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Pa's diet is quite limited now and his appetite is very poor .... DS reports that the other day he had a little steamed fish, mashed potato and pea puree, with ice cream to follow - except Pa ate the fish, then the ice cream then returned to the potato and peas.

He explained that he wanted to make sure he had room for the ice cream :lol: Pa still has all his marbles :hi5:

A freind (female, when last seen about 5ft 10 inches tall) was taken to the GP by her mother who was worried as she only ate bananas (occasionally with custard)

He weighed and measured her, and looked at her previous measurements. then asked

"Still top of her class?"

"Oh yes"

"Well she's top of her class, she's in the top 10 % of height for her age, and she's not far off her ideal weight for her height. Do you want me to change any of that, or shall we just leave her to get on with it?"

They left her to get on with it of course, and she grew up to be something of a foodie

I don't have anything to add to this at the moment, I came across it by chance and it amused me.

A friend once described one of her sons as 'pizzatarian'. He would have grown up with a very varied diet but became veggie. Only problem is he didn't like vegetables.

I should probably mention the friend who came to stay last weekend.
She arrived with a packet of bacon and 3 packets of (good) sausages.

On Friday we ate pizza and chips.

Full breakfast on Saturday followed by HM meat and potato pie.
She picked out the carrots, left the potato and shredded every piece of meat to ensure no fat or gristle :evil:
I offered green beans from the garden; she accepted then left them.

Sunday was sausage sandwiches then later a curry.
She had chicken something and rice.

On Monday they entertained themselves while we were at work.
She sent a picture of the foot-long hot dog she had bought for her lunch.

She made lasagne for dinner.
It tasted good but was basically meat, tomato, onion and garlic.
I had salad with mine, she declined.

I think she lives on meat and bread.

I think you are right with your conclusion there. My best friend at college pretty much lived on meat, potatoes, gravy, bread, dairy. I was vegan by the time we met. I think we were both pretty fascinated by eat other's diet preferences.

The fella I mentioned at the beginning of this thread did not remain my fella for long actually. He had many quirky things about him, not just food narrow mindedness, including only wearing dark coloured tops with beige trousers. One day we were out to get him new trousers as he felt he wanted to steer away from beige. Yippee, I thought! Managed to persuade him that navy blue was the way to go. He bought them but I never saw him wear them. It wasn't until we split up that he told me he always knew that he wasn't adventurous enough for me and put this down to his Asperger's! All of a sudden everything made sense! I can imagine why he might not have wanted to tell me, but it would probably have stopped me from keep nagging him if he had! I mean, I felt pretty bad afterwards, remembering the dried mango experience and him throwing up as a result! I had no idea that his concept of food was so completely different to mine!
