Weird/odd food things you do

Iíve very recently found that pepper on mayonnaise is really really tasty but then I put pepper on everything.

Salt on lettuce completely changes itís taste. Thatís the only time Iíd add salt to anything.

Oh and a Hershey bar section on a saltine cracker is delicious!

7. The gross part is

You have to make the grilled cheese first, then peel it apart to put the jelly on. Yuk, gross. My hubby still eats it this way.

And the jelly has to be dark jelly like elderberry. No strawberry.

I put peanut butter on a slice of toast then slice bananas on top. So good. The contrast between the fruit and the warm melty peanut butter is awesome. Also: it is best on Dave's Killer Bread 21 seed variety

during the Hatch Chile Fest in August. The dark chocolate gelato is pretty good, but my favorite is the mango gelato with Hatch chiles....

Of course during the Hatch Fest, those damn chiles are put into everything!! My favorite thing is the chile-cheese scones, fresh from the oven.......Brownies are pretty good too

I make bean burritos w/ sweet beans rather than refried.

The *best* anglo bean burrito, my recipe:

Flour tortilla
Sweet beans (eg, baked beans)
Sharp cheddar, shredded
Sour cream
Green bell pepper, diced (lots)

Seriously, I defy any adventurous eater to try one and not love it. Great cold or hot.

i think I can market them except if you don't eat them right away the Cheetos lose their crunch. Maybe I just need packaging like the old McDLT that kept the hot side hot and the cold side cold. Keep the crunchy middle crunchy and the the gooshy outsides gooshy.

40. We always heat our maple syrup before putting it on waffles or pancakes.

Only weird because we seem to be the only ones who do this.
If the syrup is ice cold, it cools down the waffle right away. If the syrup is hot, it melts the butter and keeps the waffle nice and warm. Pancakes have a little more heat capacity than waffles, but they're still better with hot syrup.

Just don't understand the idea of cold syrup, but whatever.

47. Melted Cheese...

when I first figured this out I was in my teens so like 50 years ago. There were no microwaves so I would put grated cheese on a piece of tin foil and put it under the broiler. Timing is everything too short and there can be some unmelted cheese. If you let it go too long it gets crispy, which while delicious it is hard to separate from the foil. In our modern age I of course have access to a microwave and put the cheese on a plate to melt.

70. Salt on watermelon and cantaluope...

Several years ago when living in Chicago, I went to a work picnic one weekend. We had about a dozen watermelons iced down for dessert. When it came time to dig in, about 10 off us were sitting down at a picnic table ready to dig in. Having grown up in Arkansas, I assumed the law required salting your melon before eating. So, I was vigorously salting down my slice, when I looked up. By their open-mouthed stares, you would have thought I was sitting there eating a turd sandwich. None of them had seen someone salt tehir wayer melon!

I cant eat melon without it!

stuff from my childhood that i dont eat, but think about fondly-
bologna wrapped around sweet pickle relish, between saltines.
liverwurst on polish rye, but the important part is to really mash the bread.a little raw onion makes it perfect.

my dad put chili sauce on his eggs, always. hot stuff wasnt that easy to find in those days, so it was a late summer ritual to can up a bunch of tomatoes, and some chunky hot sauce. i got the job of pushing the hot peppers through the meat grinder on the back porch.

From the days before Gatorade they've had mustard and water stations. From single servings of mustard they can take with them to people with squirt bottles that the freshman take on the fly.

But fresh hot corn stirred into cold applesauce is delicious. I like it best before the temps even out, so that the corn is still hot and the applesauce is still cold.

I also like butter on crackers. I started doing that at diners while waiting on the order. They usually had Captain Wafers and crackers for salads on the table, and butter.

And plain spaghetti with just salt and melted butter.

It looked quite elegant, and I realized it was really what we were talking about on here.

But Frito's and buttermilk is a totally new one.

As adventurous as I am, I have never managed to taste buttermilk by itself, like a drink. It just does not seem right.

But, Frito's and buttermilk could simulate corn chips and sour cream I suppose... nearly nachos...

As much as I love any chips and dip (corn chips, doritos, potato chips + sour cream/cottage cheese), the idea of eating it with a spoon is just... weird.

Not ruling out trying it someday though.

I think it's terrible plain. Whenever I make salad dressing or something that I have to buy a pint, I try it and still don't like it.

Mainly I eat chips to snack on while I'm driving, so I rarely have chips at home. I couldn't imagine how Fritos and buttermilk would be good, but what you said about chips and sour cream makes sense, so maybe that's the appeal. Next time I have Fritos, I'm gonna try to remember to save a few and try it when I have buttermilk.

159. That made me remember our favorite vending snack at the pool

when we were kids: BBQ fritos and a can of Chocola (that weird chocolate-water drink that you have to shake). Something about those flavors mixed with the chlorine taste permeating your sinuses after swimming all day is a nice combination, lol!

111. I invented avocado toast

Way back in the 1960s when we were poor kids.

A neighborhood friend had an avocado tree. We would toast white bread, smash avocados up with (CRITICAL STEP!) garlic powder and salt.

Holy moly I can't believe it took everybody so many decades to catch on!

Not a fan of peas but potatoes and vinegar is good.

He eats 3 bananas a day now to make up for all he couldn't afford when he was young.

When money got particularly tight, my mom would feed us Spaghetti-O burritos.

I think it was just spaghetti-os and sour cream in a flour tortilla.

Chicken was expensive got shed make this usually on a Tuesday and it was the deal until Thursday. Microwave technology. This didn't end when my stepfather came in the picture. Ther was always that dish in the fridge.

I don't think I've had a hot meal at her house in 20 years. My wife and I have bought her mini steam tables, hot plates, trying to get her the message.

used to make a yellowish-orange "cheese food product" that my family had at the table along with Parmesan cheese when we were having spaghetti. I don't think they make it anymore, and I used to love that stuff along with the Parmesan on my pasta!

181. Cheddar cheese powder is still available. Google it.

But I remember the Kraft brand that they use to sell in the grocery stores. I think people caught on that you could buy the cannister of cheese powder & your own bag of pasta & make Kraft Macaroni & Cheese for way less than a box cost.

183. I have had others

but they just don't have the texture of the old Kraft product. I've even tried the powdered stuff that comes in the box of mac and cheese, and it's not the same, either.

But my mac and cheese uses elbow macaroni, milk, butter, and Tillamook medium cheddar. Thank goodness it is now available on the east coast!

170. just a few things after reading thru this thread

* cottage and canned pineapple (and some of the juice)
*cottage cheese on sliced tomato with season salt (my mom used to serve it as a side dish during summer dinners)
* peanut butter, jelly, & lettuce sandwich
* peanut butter & butter sandwich
* peanut butter, jelly, & potato chip sandwich
* peanut butter & mayo sandwich
(if i eat pb&j these days it's just the traditional pb&j)

* sliced pickles and mayo sandwich

* grilled cheese, tomato, & mayo

*stuffed black olives with cream cheese (another side snack my mom used to make. i still make them)

* tomato & mayo sandwich

i used to like salami smeared with cream cheese and then rolled up

(don't eat meat anymore)

anyway--interesting thread here.

also, my friend's mom used to make him sandwiches with buddig meat slices and cheese whiz and always a little bag of fritos. he ate that crap on a daily basis for YEARS (even after he moved out on his own. it didn't kill him--he's alive and kickin and in his 60s!)

My stepfather used to make cabbage in a crock pot. It smelled so horrible my mom made him plug it in on the back porch.
Couple that with a sceptic tank on a brutally hot and humid summer day on the Virginia Peninsula.

That's why all the basketball hoops are in the front yard. I'm convinced of it.

191. When I was young and poor

(well, even poorer than I am now anyway) I would buy cheap dehydrated mashed potatoes in bulk bags and big bags of frozen store brand mixed veggies and make a dish I called White Trash Gumbo (Iíve since learned the error of that phrase, apologies to all) which was the veggies in enough water to cover and brought to a boil, then enough potatoes dumped in to soak up all the water. A glob of margarine and some salt and pepper and maybe a bit of garlic powder and I was good to go.

Young men without domestic training can end up a bit pathetic, Iím afraid.
