When do you refuse to eat foods that touch one another?

Okay, call me a picky toddler on this one! Two examples...I prefer my vegetables or potatoes don't touch the entree. Omelets & hash bowns must stay separate. Breadstuffs, when placed on a plate, must keep their distance & not have absorbed any oozed goodies from the other foods. Do you sometimes refuse or rather not eat foods that are served touching each other?
