divided plate..

My daughter has this thing about foods touching each other on her plate. Of course a good solution is a divided plate, like we use to get at the Woolworth's counter so may years ago. Anyone else have this or a similar "issue" with food proximity

    I don't like sweet foods touching savory foods !!

    I love cranberry sauce, BUT I hate it when it touches the turkey, dressing, rice, etc.

    When I eat pancakes with syrup, even though I love sausage and/or bacon with it, I can't stand for the sausage/bacon to get any syrup on them !!!


    Other than that I'm perfect !!! (humble too !)

    Just don't believe I'd go that far! We have bought her a couple of divided plates for Christmas...HEY - don't tell..

    Above all, and at this very special time of year, be reminded that:

    This seems to always be an issue with kids. My dad enjoyed saying, "It all ends up in the same place." It has become code in my family. If you are being overly picky, someone put you in your place by whining loudly, "Myyyy fooooood is TOUCHIIING!!!"

    Not that I mix it up on my plate, but I will often spear a piece of meat, smear it in my mashed potatos, and stab or scoop a green bean before the fork hits my mouth. Oddly, I tend to do this with the curved side of the tines down.

    I guess I don't have a real problem with mixing food. My daughter doesn't either, but my oldest brother once complained to my mother about me mixing food when I was about five. The sight of it on my plate was apparently disturbing to him. Wierd!

    I don't have a problem with it one way or the other, but find I do actually enjoy going to Japanese and some Chinese restaurants where they have to food served on trays divided into five or six sections. It is really nice when my salad dressing is not flowing into my shrimp tempura and the kung pao chicken sauce is not on my fresh orange dessert!
