But still, those gross combinations did make me think of some weird combinations of things I have eaten or like to eat. I have mixed balsamic vinegar, plain yogurt, and sugar. More than once. I like a little milk on my ice cream; I chop the ice cream up with my spoon to make a sort of thick shake in a bowl. I like to use buttered and salted popcorn like it's cereal - I pour milk on it and eat it with a spoon. (Well, actually, if you are going to try that one, it works best if you pour the milk in the bowl first, then put the popcorn on top so it doesn't turn to sog-mush immediately.) I got that one from my Grandmom, who told me they used to eat it when she was a kid (maybe with plain popcorn?). If I go to Wendy's, I always order a small fries and a small Frosty off the Value Menu. I dip the fries in the Frosty. I don't usually do this anywhere else. Wendy's just seems to have the perfect saltiness to their fries, that marries so well with the sugary-chocolatey Frosty.
Come to think of it, I think my friend Alice introduced me to the fries-and-shake idea when we would stop at Coby's diner while walking home from Centerville Junior High. Was it you, Alice, or was it Kari, or maybe it was Amy Ashby? Do you guys remember that? I distinctly remember playing "Ordinary World" by Duran Duran on the jukebox. Also "Mr. Wendell" by Arrested Development. Sometimes I would order a grilled cheese and dip it in my fry sauce. Ah, memories.
Kay, sorry for the trip down memory lane. Back to my weird foods...
I CAN'T HELP but drink a little bit of the pickle juice from the jar when all the pickles are gone. Or, even better, the vinegar from the homemade fresh refrigerator cucumber pickles I have been keeping on hand all through this pregnancy. Also the juice from pickled beets. Okay, anything that involves vinegar, I just really want to drink it, especially when I'm pregnant. I really have to watch myself, because much more than a couple sips will really do a number on my stomach. I've been down that road a time or two.
But I DO NOT think pickles and ice cream go together AT ALL!!!!!!!!
Now that I've sufficiently grossed you out, what are some of the "weird combinations" you like to eat??? Come on, spill it!
(I don't think I mentioned yet that Tyson has been gone to Atlanta again since Monday, and probably won't be back for another week. I really need you to answer my questions, because reading your comments and blogs is just about my only adult interaction right now. And it's online interaction. Sad. So answer my question!)
