    Stupid topic: Two disparate items, which to eat first?

    Mes Mosca often gives me a lunch with a sandwich, a small chips, and a couple cookies.

    The sandwich I eat first. But, should I eat the salty/savory item second, or the sweet one? Which would you do?

    I eat the one I love the most last so that I get as full as I can with this skinny body and this darn metabolism. That way if I start to fill up before finishing I WILL FINISH THIS CRAP OFF!!

      Hey, I’m a grown up. I’d eat desert first.

        I had a college roommate once that had this phobia about taking a bite of everything on his plate in sequential order. Always thought the guy was a little nuts so I'd deliberately ate things backwards and out of order to blow his mind and watch him squirm in his chair !! Guess I'm just a merry prankster at heart

          I had an uncle who always ate every serving on his plate completely ... one thing at a time before moving on to the next ... clockwise. Georgia Tech graduate, of course ... ...

          I almost always would eat the chips first, then the sandwich, then the cookie. It might sound weird but it is probably related to how much space the chips take up on the plate vs. the other foods.

          When I go out for a burger I always eat the fries first and then the burger. My thinking is the fries cool off a lot faster than the burger and I would much rather eat a burger that has cooled off a bit more than I would like to eat cold fries. Another reason is once I pick up a burger I like to eat it without putting it down. Putting it down and picking it up multiple times seems to lead to it falling apart more readily.

            I like to eat my fries with my burger. However, there was a local place years ago that served killer shoe string fries. I had to eat them first 'cause they cooled very quickly.

            I’m with you here on the picking up and putting down. Once I pick up a sandwich or wrap of any kind it never goes back on the plate. Too messy.

          alternate between the two. Better yet, put the tater chips in the sammich, and the the cookie for dessert.

            Sandwich, chips, cookies in that order with no deviation. You can't take a few bites of the sandwich, then have a few chips, then move back to the sandwich, it just isn't right. As far as eating the cookies first goes you just can't do it. If you eat those first then your meal is done and the sandwich and chips will have to be eaten as a later meal.......in the proper order of course.

              Depends on your age. As you get up there, ya might not finish the meal, so at a certain age I'm gonna always eat desert first. Not there yet...

            Eat the sandwich and upon completion move onto the chips and then throw away the cookies and demand a sour pickle tomorrow!

            If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

            Placeholder

            The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            Placeholder

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            Placeholder

            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
