Though I'm not terribly picky now, I was a very picky child. My biggest pickiness was not letting food touch on the plate.
It wasn't that nothing could touch each other, but I didn't like to have sweet things touch savory things...or any other combination that was 'weird' to me.
Sometimes, things that I liked separately lost their appeal when combined.
Some examples: pimento cheese. I like peppers, I like cheese. Didn't like pimento cheese. (I still don't like it unless drjoan
's making it.)
Carrot-raisin salad. Exactly what it says it is. I couldn't stand it. Still can't.
Bits of things in jello/jelly gross me out.
One of the things that seemed the most odd to me was my gram's peanut butter and onion sandwiches.
Nowadays, I'm much more adventurous with food, but nothing could have prepared me for living with ybunny
Fortunately, other than his penchant for dipping Tunnock's
into salsa, he tends to stick to sandwiches for his bizarre matchings.
Recently, he threatened2
me with a cheddar and nutella sandwich.
It might just be good...but it makes me shake my head.What combinations seem most odd to you? Which ones will you eat anyway?
1- Making disgusting jello molds is an art in the southern US. I can't even begin to describe some of the things that got chucked into perfectly good jello. *shudders*
2- A bit hollow of a threat since he's thousands of miles away. :)
