My best friend has a picture of herself at a restaurant in Italy and on the end of her fork is a baby octopus. And it was moving. I could never
be the adventurous tourist when it comes to food. I will try all manner of things so long as they are a) not moving and b) preferably
not meat, but I can deal.
This one is quite common, but it grosses me out whenever the fiancé eats it: grap jelly. Just not my thing. I like grapes. But grape jelly, grape juice, wine — no, no, no!
Reading through a lot of these (the ones with actual listed ingredients, not the ones that have specific names because I don’t know the real names for combinations of ingredients that form a named dish), they sound unusual at first glance, but on thinking about them, they make perfect sense. Like cream cheese with jam — it’s like cheesecake, essentially, minus cups of sugar and butter. Bacon with sweet things — have ALWAYS put syrup on my bacon with pancakes and waffles.
Sauerkraut is definitely not a weird one to me! LOVE sauerkraut.
Peanut butter with celery was a FREQUENT snack as a kid. Ants on a log! It’s a classic!
Oh, for the person who said hot sauce on popcorn, have you ever tried making stovetop popcorn using spicy olive oil? omg… There’s an olive oil and vinegar store in the mall here, all local products, and they cook samples to lure you in. Well, the smell of garlic roasted potatoes got us there, but since it was still cooking, we walked around tasting the different oils and vinegars, and one of the samples was spicy popcorn. It was INCREDIBLE. Also, pomegranate vinegar, white peach cranberry vinegar, coconut oil with lime vinegar — all so amazing. I could live in that place!
So, my weird thing? I don’t feel like anything is particuarly weird, really. I mean, I love a lot of what people have listed as strange, so I can’t think of anything unique! I DO love milk (whole milk with ice) with ANY food. Not like dipping it, but as my beverage of choice. I LOVE milk and think it’s perfect with any meal or snack!
Really, I can’t think of anything!
