    So what does it take to be the número uno world’s pickiest eater? Not eat at all?

    By definition, you’re not picky if you’re eating bologna.

    I don’t even eat balogna. Does that make me even pickier than Petey?

    Rind? When I was a kid I thought that stuff we pulled off was plastic! Um, I guess I still believe that.

    My late husband swore he wasn’t picky, but if he didn’t see me fix a meal he wouldn’t eat any of it. It took me eight years to get him to try tuna-noodle casserole. Which he liked.

    If you didn’t the crust, you shouldn’t be in the top 100.

    You can be picky while eating anything (even bologna), if you only eat that thing. The 108 year-old guy eats bleu cheese, and I can’t imagine Petey eating that.

    Petey’s particular particularities include preferences for flavorless foods and “uncomplicated” foods, while another person’s “pickiness” might manifest in unavailability. Is it pickier to eat only unsalted saltines (with the salt picked off) that you can get at any grocery store, or to eat only an imported multigrain brand of cracker that’s only sold in the next county?

    Try your vegetables with LOTS of butter, and maybe some salt. Delicious!

    It helps when you wash them before cooking/consuming. There are many vegetables I will not eat, particularly legumes. However, I love cauliflower. It’s my favorite veggie. I also like broccoli, but I love corn. I will not eat peas, green beans or yellow beans or spinach.

    As I recall, Petey’s rank keeps dropping over the years, instead of going up, doesn’t it? :-D

    Hey! I’m caught up! This was the first CDS I ever read. Been enjoying this look back at what I had missed. Now I’m looking forward to continuing the (Otter) loop.

    When we were married 52 years ago, the only non-starchy vegetables my husband would eat were peas, beans and carrots. He’s still that way – his Aspergery traits manifest that way, along with a preference for plain shirts and no condiments on hamburgers or Parmesan on spaghetti. My traits run more along the lines of avoiding the phone and receiving lines.

    I just don’t understand picky eaters…what a waste of time & energy to miss out on so many delicious meals and edibles.

    Wash them first to get the grit off…works wonders for the taste. They are delicious straight from the garden (after washing)
