I was having a perfectly innocent conversation with my mother-in-law last night while we were paging through a cookbook that she had purchased for the girls (It's Paula Deen's My First Cookbook, and it looks awesome, if you want to Google it). I have no idea which recipe we were looking at, but all of a sudden she said "You know what the best sandwich combination is? Peanut butter and Pickle!" At my look of horror she said "Well, sweet pickle." My face didn't get any better, so she tried to explain that the combination of the smooth peanut butter and the crunchy tangy pickle were to die for. And that sometimes she would add lettuce for "extra crunch". She also tried to compare it to eating peanut butter on celery. So even though I wanted to throw up I started thinking about what I eat. I think that cottage cheese and sliced green pepper are supposed to go together. And that the perfect addition to tuna salad is crushed Doritos. And, of course, you're supposed to dip Fritos in sour cream. And I suppose all of those could be considered "weird".

So my question is, what do YOU eat that's unusual?

Fries in mayo. (Or mayo mixed with ketchup.) Actually, doritos on tuna salad sounds really good. This is not helping my diet!

Well, I love Wendy's frosty with fries (I know a lot of people who do that). My mom pours juice on her cereal

Misty I love that too!!!!!!!!!! You should try potato chips dipped in yogurt, another good combination.
When i was kid I would eat peanut butter and cheese sandwhich.

heh heh. I actually consider the fries and frosty combo so delicious I didn't even think about it when I was thinking of the weird things I eat. Wow. That sounds really good all of a sudden. *sigh*
