Yesterday i was at my sister-in-laws for my niece's birthday party. Naturally all of the kids were down in the basement and outside, the men were in the living room watching The Masters on the big screen and the women were in the kitchen chatting around the island.
On the island were some of the toppings for the burgers and dogs were we having later to eat. There was also a big bowl of chips. So as we are standing there chatting we are nibbling on the chips, pickles and olives sitting there. I noticed that my sister-in-law was taking a chip and putting a pickle on it and eating them. I thought it looked pretty good so I tried it. It was actually really good. Soon we were all eating pickles and/or olives with our chips.
I later thought about how weird but good this combination was. So I got to thinking this morning of some other things I have tried that sound weird but are actually really good.
One thing I like to eat together is cottage cheese with green olives in it. Something I tried while pregnant with Little S and still like.
Another thing is macaroni and milk. I know my step dad is really grossed out right now, but it is so good. The macaroni has to be hot and al dente, pour it into a bowl with ice cold milk and salt it...yummy! My mum used to make this for us when we were kids.
So what are some weird food combinations that you eat? What made you try them? Have you convinced anyone else to try it?
