I think salt and vinegar chips are the most popular flavour of chips in Canada, we also love dill pickle chips and ketchup chips (we must be a bunch of freaks!!)

I LOVE roasted bone marrow. DH and I buy our beef by the half beast (we have a local guy that raises grass fed, no-hormone Wagyu beef and he sells us a half a beast that we split with my parents), the first thing we do when we get the meat home is roast all the marrow bones and have a feast!! Melty goodness!!

I also picked up the habit (from my father) of putting peanut butter on my hotdogs! Yumm!

@Mimoza:  I LOVE tomato sandwiches! With a lovely ripe summer tomato? Mmmmm.

My other favorites (but potentially weird):

  • Grilled dill pickle and american cheese sandwiches.
  • Peanut butter, honey and hot sauce sandwiches.
  • Roasted red pepper sandwiches (on toast, with a little mayo).
  • PB& J with chips or fritos crushed in

No one can understand why I love eating spaghetti with plain yogurt.  No one gives it a chance, it’s so bomb!

I love coconut water (the clear water that come straight out when you cut the coconut open…

I think it’s super delicious and refreshing but people have given me strange looks before… probably an acquired taste…

PB and Miracle Whip sandwiches.  Also, I make a dip out of cottage cheese and salsa.  A former bf used to call it “zelda.”  It’s super yummy.  Oh, I also like steamed cabbage with balsamic vinegar.

Take the leftover crumbs from a bag of chips, add salsa, mix and eat like cereal. FH thought I was nuts when he saw me do it the first time. But seriously, what are you supposed to do with all the chip bits that are too small to dip!

@MrsSmitty:  Strategically place the bag over your mouth, shake gently, and then get crumbs in your eyeballs, hehehe.  Tongue Out

These are all cultural, but I LOVE them, and get weird looks when eating them if not at home:

-beef tongue

-chicken liver fried with onion and egg

-herring with raw onion and potato

Mustard sandwiches. Just bread and mustard. I’ve eaten these things since I was in preschool.

A1 steak sauce on my mac and cheese so good. My sisters and I started doing this when we where younger and it stuck. Also chedder cheese on PB and Jelly. Sweet and tangy. When I was younger I used to make mayo sandwhichs on on white bread.

I’ve been known to nom on slices of raw onion.  I learned that one from my dad.  In my defense, I have a tendency to eat too quickly…which you totally can’t do when you’re eating slices of raw onion.

Spaghetti noodles with hot salsa and parmasan.  Decided to eat that one day when we ran out of regular pasta sauce (damn roommates thought I’d bought the pasta sauce for them and consumed accordingly), and…it’s pretty good.  Hey, it’s tomato based…

And one that my spouse doesn’t get – toasted cinnamon raisin swirl bread…with nutella.  It’s great, but sometimes I get a wtf.

@Mimoza:   LOVE tomato and mayo sandwhices.

 

My other favs are liverwurst, onion, mustard and it MUST have potato chips on it.  Or fried bologna and bread and butter pickles with fried bread.  I made one for Fiance after he made fun of me and is now a fan.

It might be a Czech thing, but you spread a thin layer of lard on rye bread (like you’d spread butter), add a thin layer of mustard, and finely chopped onion on top and it’s really good. I used to love it as a kid. Haven’t had it in ages, though…
