Paula Abdul was right

Have you ever had French fries dipped in a chocolate shake? For some people, just mentioning the two together makes them slobber like Pavlov's dogs.

However, sometimes weird food combinations work. I have a friend in high school who tried Oreos (Oreoes? Oreo's? Fine ... Oreo cookies.) and squirt cheese on a dare and loved it. (I had to take her word for it because I never had the guts to try it on my own.)

However, there is one food combo I grew up with that makes perfect sense to me but causes my wife to cringe.

It's a grilled cheese sandwich:

With hot chocolate:

I dare you to try it. Tomato soup is fine, but this is the way I really love to eat grilled cheese sandwiches.

So, there you have it, Paula Abdul. Opposites really do attract.

I love french fries and chocolate shakes. I have never had Oreos and squirt cheese, or girlled cheese and hot chocolate. They sound absurd!

I have had lays chips dipped in mustard, not all that weird, but certainly uncommon.

I LOVE fries dipped in vanilla soft serve from McD's. I also love beef jerky with honey roasted peanuts and Hoffmann cheese. Kinda a weird combo but man, I crave it on a snow day. Maybe it is still memories from last year's ice storm when we didn't have power and were eating out of food storage for a week. In any case, it is GOOD.

OH! And now that I have had time to think about it, I love putting ketchup and mayonaise on my tacos or burritos and I dip Salsa Verde chips in potatoe salad (which I happen to be eating right now). YUM!

eating weird food rules.

i like to use HUGE pepperoncinis as scoops in minestrone soup. i'm also a huge fan of dipping my grilled cheese in buffalo sauce, but that's probably not that weird.
