So gross...

A house full of teenagers is never dull - and mine is certainly no exception! Just now, I witnessed something so heinous, so truly disgusting, I had to post about it.

My daughter, who will unfortunately remain nameless, was enjoying chips and salsa. As she made it to the end of the salsa container, I watched her as she eyed the last few tablespoons of the salsa juice left in the bottom.

Now - to preface, it wasn't the kind of salsa that is pictured here - it was the fresh tomato chunk kind of salsa. So all that was left was the juicy debris at the bottom.

I saw her drink the salsa juice.

I know it seems as though I'm picking on my kids lately - but I'll have you know that there are many many funny things they do that I just shake my head at. I show an incredible amount of restraint by NOT posting the volumes of shenanigans that occur in my house on a daily basis.


Now I just have to know - would you drink the last few tablespoons of salsa? Do you have strange food fetishes?

So, my dear wife Jodi has been wondering if she has a strange food fetish? She can't think of one so I'm posting this.

Everytime she sits down to eat, and I really mean EVERYTIME, she will pick something out of her food and not eat it. Whatever it is that she picks out IS perfectly fine and safe to eat. Sometimes I'll eat the things she picks out.

So there you have it, Jodi is a "food picker".

Love me,

LOL, a food picker huh?

I guess that salsa had to be really good. I'm sure I have them but I can't remember.

That must have been some really, really good salsa...:P

I have been known on occasion to eat the last of the garlic dip by sweeping my fingers through the bowl...I know, pretty gross, but this dip is addicting and people have been known to fight over it......=P This dip appeared at a dinner party given by friends...the last of it was in the bowl, there was a tussle over the bowl and then someone went running through the house and out the door with the bowl and a bag of chips.......they didn't return until the dip was gone. ( no, it wasn't me.......) but it was so funny. Now everyone asks if the dip will be present at certain dinners and then we like to take bets on who will run away with it.......=D

no - I don't think I would with salsa, but give me the bottom of an ice cream container and I am all over that stuff. I don't even know what that means, but it means I will do gross things for the foods I love.

Mechelle said...

Email me your address and I will send you some homemade salsa that will have all of you drinking the last drops.

My email address is:

I do not have any strange food fetishes; at least I don't think I do. I will have to ask Jim. Maybe he can comment for me, like sweet Todd did for Jodi. m

I would for sure drink the last little bit!! My parents make the BEST salsa in the world. Why on earth would I want to lose out on the chance for one last bite?
I don't like my food to touch on the plate. I actually probably have tons of odd things with food. I'll think on that.

Mother Goose said...

oh frumpy, I can't drink melted ice cream. I like it hard and slightly melted but.... I think it is so funny you said you will do gross things for food you like! that will definitely make an interesting meet up! LOL

Scrappy Girl said...

I would NOT have done the salsa fave food addiction right now is the dill pickle pringles...I love 'em! I don't do anything weird with my food though. Lil Sis however will scrape ALL the topping off her pizza and eat it naked AND she will scrape all the insides out of a Taco Bell burrito and eat only the bread.

Todd, her hubby eats her "pickings" too. LOL

McEwens said...

LOL, a food picker huh>>> LOL I would NOT have drank the salsa

Alone maybe. Then that way no one would ever know. But I probably wouldn't. That is so funny about The Picker. That just puts a new twist on the whole thing.

I've been known to lick the small bowl I pour salsa in. And ice cream bowl. (Not the container, too messy.) And use the last kernal of popcorn to scrape the butter flavoring off the side of the bag. (Or just use my finger to get that delicious flavoring.)

So, um, yeah....I have strange food fetishes.

Motherboard said...

I have more strange food fetishes than I can to admit.


wonder woman said...

and the award goes to.......Jodi! Come see how wonderful you are!!

Once again--your husband rallies with very funny stuff!!! Everyone in blogland is going to be all over that name--The Picker.

I am with you--drinking salsa juice--eeewwww
But my husband will lick the plate of almost anything--anytime.

I am all over the---everything has to have its seperate place on my plate. Food must never touch--ever.

I have a weird thing where I always have to leave a little bit on my plate. Ever since I was a toddler, my mom said I would leave at least one bite on my plate. Weird huh? But I think that is only for meals and not dessert. I don't seem to have a problem finishing my dessert.

My Mom-in-law drinks the pickle juice in the pickle jar. Now that is sick.
