Darling Husband likes raw potatoes. They bring him back to his childhood I guess.

I like kimchi and rice. Only my fellow koreans understand that one, lol. Darling Husband says it gives me really bad gas and smells like ass in a jar, so he doesn’t see why I like it =]

Seriously, kimchi and rice can make my whole day better

LOL!!! @vicarswifeintraining I love a nice branston pickle and cheese sandwich and out here everyone thinks it’s crazy but over there it’s kinda just the norm! So comfort food but only because I’m not in the UK!!

Jerky. I think it is a family thing, because we are all into it but aside from my mom and dad that’s about it. And not just beef, not even kidding right now I’m eating buffalo jerky. Elk was yesterday. Pretty sure this makes me sound pretty burly lol

Cheese and jam–especially strawberry. I grew up allergic to peanuts. When my sister would eat peanutbutter and jelly, I had to choose something. This was the mix that I picked and still eat now.

Oooh, @vicarswifeintraining, I’ve got another British-American translation question: What’s red sauce?  

Jerky is dried, shredded, and smoked meat.  Ok, that’s not the most appealing sounding description, but it’s very tasty and very salty.  Especially good when camping! It’s kind of like biltong (from South Africa and maybe elsewhere).

lol @ vicarswifeintraining – it is dehydrated meat. it usually comes in thin strips and you just pick it up and eat it.

as for salt water taffy i don’t really know how to explain it really, but all i know is i tried it once and thought it was pretty gross. i always think of elderly people when i see it though because it just seems like i see them munching on it every so often lol

@vicarswifeintraining – Jerky isn’t horrible, trust me. It’s ah-may-zing! 

When I was a kid I would always eat Little Debbie’s iced oatmeal cookies with nacho cheese Doritos on top. Sooooo weird, but I loved it.

And now the one I always get made fun of for is a Wendy’s frosty with fries – you dip the fries in the frosty – SO EFFING GOOD! 🙂

Jerky is like dry bacon sort of. Kind of. Delish.
