Have you ever heard of people mixing their lasagna and lettuce salad together?
I was talking with some friends today about weird eating habits and someone mentioned that they were on a business lunch once and someone ordered lasagna and a salad. Then when it was brought to the table, they promptly mixed the two together and ate it! Then one of my other friends said that they also do this. I have never heard of such a thing. Is this rare? Is it some sort of regional thing?
I don't think so. There's really no difference here than say putting a lettuce leaf on a burger.
I would say that the downside is, the leaf tends to get soggy fairly quickly if the lettuce used is a common round type. Chinese leaf, Sweet Romaine (as used in Caesar salads) or iceberg last a lot longer before starting to droop, are generally crispier and in my opinion, tastier.
Eating is personal. Just because one person likes to eat everything separately, doesn't mean all should or will and I don't think it's rare at all. Some people even eat each ingredient separately rather than a little of each in a fork or spoonful.
One of my uncles would eat a fried egg white first and would then lift the complete yolk on his knife blade and pop it in his mouth--whole. The first time I saw this, I thought it disgusting.
Cooking and eating are all about the marriage of flavour, texture and temperature. Salads often go with hot food, so to mix the warm and cold together can often lend unexpected interest to the food.
In conclusion, this seemingly odd preference is mild compared to watching the way people eat or eating habits in general, which can be more off-putting than the choice of food combinations!

Have you ever heard of a brand of toilet paper called Mama Love 555?The first place that I've ever seen this type of toilet paper was at a Motel 6 in Bakersfield, California, and since then I've never seen it in stores or anywhere else.

Is mixing coffee with milk really that bad? Why?I have heard and read that coffee itself is good for you, but once you mix it with milk it reverses and it is suppose to be bad for you. Why is this?

Has anyone ever heard of an avocado called the "Bruce" avocado?I saw these huge avocado's in the grocery store the other day and I'd never heard of them before. It said they were from Mexico. If anyone has ever tasted these are they good?
