Do you mix it up, or do you prefer it on top?

Now I know some things HAVE to be mixed: mac and cheese, carbonara. But meat sauces I like on TOP of the pasta, not mixed in. My DH likes it mixed in. He likes his pancakes on the bottom followed by butter and syrup, then his fried eggs, s&p UGH. When I have pancakes, I want JUST pancakes...and bacon. But all that mixed up? He mixes the ice cream topping into the ice cream. I do not. If it's grits and eggs, they get all mashed together. I like my grits in a seperate small bowl and eaten with a spoon on the side. He puts jelly in his biscuit and closes it like a sandwich; my jelly goes into a seperate little cup with a jam spoon. He butters his entire piece of bread at once, I butter as I go. And we've been happily married for almost 32 years! But it got me thinking - how do YOU do it?
