The (not-so)-secret eating habits of the Bookkitten

Last Friday, I wrote about foods that I thought were rawther strange. I cannot tell you how many E-mails and comments I got that basically said, "How dare you mock our favorite foods!"

So, in fairness to you, my darling kittens, I am going to tell you about some eating habits of mine that others think are rawther strange:

1. I eat tuna straight from the can.
I don't bother with the sandwich, celery, or (ugh) mayonnaise any more. I get my can opener, break the seal, and drain the water. Then I get my fork and dig right in. I find plain tuna to be rawther tasty and flavorful. Yummy, yummy, yummy.

It is not easy, however, to eat tuna in the presence of kitties. I like to give them the empty can once I'm done, so they can lick whatever morsels are left in the crevices.

2. Raw tortellini is very tasty.
I am talking about the fresh tortellini here, the one that comes in the plastic packages, in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. It's gotten to the point where I don't even boil the water for it any more; I just dump some into a bowl, eat it one piece at a time, and call it dinner. Sometimes I like to stretch out my snacking by biting the piece in half, chewing it slowly, and savoring each morsel. Then I finish the rest by popping it into my mouth.

3. I like to melt chocolate chips in the microwave, stir in a little natural peanut butter, and call it dessert.
I call it the "Poor Man's Peanut Butter Cup." It may not be good for you, but oh, does it taste good!

4. I like to drink plain hot water.
I don't even put a tea bag or hot cocoa in it; I just like it regular. I first started doing this in college on really cold days. One night there was no hot cocoa or tea in my dorm room, and I was desperate to warm up, so I dumped some water in the hot pot, heated it up, and voila!

5. I have been known to eat raw oatmeal.
Sometimes I'll pour it into the bowl, much like cereal, and sprinkle some brown sugar and cinnamon on top. I don't even pour milk into the bowl. It's really good crunchy! Try it!

And that's just for starters! I won't go further 'cause I don't wanna gross y'all out (that is, if I haven't done so already). Do you, kittens, have any food quirks that you'd like to share with me?

People in Asia drink plain hot water all the time. Does a body good, I understand. Check out what I ate and drank this past weekend: Sunday Salon

Very interesting...
I'm sure I have some of those strange habits. Like I eat cheese doritos with cottage cheese as a "dip".

Drinking a cup of hot water first thing in the morning is very good for you.

Burts Bees makes a lavender toothpaste.

I like cream cheese and olive sandwiches.

I thought eating tuna straight from the can was normal, until I was eating some in the lounge at school and people told me it was weird. I've noticed I have really strange eating habits ever since I came to college!

Missy said...

Very unusual! I am going to have to try the oatmeal/cinnamon/brown sugar. Sounds delicious!

I love tortellini. I never tried it raw. Now I'm tempted...
