Ok.. we all confessed about things we can't stop eating once we start...

Here's a new thread challenge: Weird Things I Love To Eat!

And since I suggested it, I guess I have to start....

Weirdest --

Raw pasta!

I was in China last year on business and was served a plate of deep fried
Scarpions. They were about 1.5 inches long and strategically placed on a
mountain of fried rice noodles like they were trying to make it to the
summit. After inspection, I noticed that the stingers were in place.

It was an honor to be presented with this delicacy by the director of the
organization I was visiting. We each had five. They were kind of like burnt
Freetos. I ate as many as my host, and felt no unpleasant side effects from
expected neurotoxins. According to the waiter, the deep frying destroys the
toxin.

Now, that's unusual. I can't say that I loved them, but they weren't bad.I
would probably do it again under the right circumstances.

Regards,

R.D. Kane

When I was a teenager, I use to like to eat dog biscuits. I grew strong
healty teeth and never had a problem with fleas. :)
When I was in the military, I used to like to eat S.O.S. on pancakes.
The only thing I can think of that I do now that may be concidered weird
is that when I eat a muffin, or cupcake, I like to pop the paper
wrapper in my mouth and chew it until all the flavor is gone. I usually
look around to see if anyone is watching before I do it too.

Peanut butter, mayonaise and banana sandwiches.

Orange Sherbert and Club Soda float. The club soda puts an icy crust on
the outside of the sherbert, and cuts the sweetness. When you get a
mouthfull, you get some soda, some icy covering and some soft orangy
middle. MMmmm..

Potted Meat Product dug out of the can with saltine crackers, but only
while fishing... :-) And Tabasco sardines, with the same caveat

One more I'll mention. Ya know those packages of cheese crackers? I take
a bite of the cheese cracker and the before chewing, I add a swig of
Sprite. Then chew vigorously, allowing the Sprite to foam amongst the
cracker.

My husband would definitely say the weirdest thing I love to eat is
gefilte fish!!! Just the looks of it can send goys heaving to the
bathroom!

When I was a kid, we told our elderly (non-Jewish) babysitter we wanted
some matzo ball soup. We had those handy-dandy pre-made Mother's Matzo
Balls in a jar that we would add to chicken broth for a "Jewish quicky."

When she put the bowels down and we slurped our first slurp -- it tasted
HORRIBLE!! Turned out she used gefilte fish instead of the matzo balls --
both coming in Mother's brand jars sitting side-by-side in our fridge. We
cried that this wasn't what it was suppose to be...but our protests were
to no avail. She forced us to eat every bite because "that's what we said
we wanted"!!

So I guess another weird thing I've eaten -- unintentionally -- is gefilte
fish-chicken soup!! (And I won't again, if I can help it!!).

Now, now Becca. As a matter of fact I do pour Pepto over Blue Bell
Homemade Vanilla. Not only does it taste good, it looks good too! I
know in the back of your mind you are considering trying this aren't
you? The next time you put those ten scoops of Blue Bell in a giant
bowl, you're gonna think about wonderin' over to the cabinet and getting
that bottle of Pepto with the pink crust around the lid.

Go ahead ... try it, you know you want to.

As an alternative to Pepto, try a can of beer over ice cream. Moosehead
+ Chocolate = Chocolate Moose!

I won't tell you the other things I've put Pepto Bismol on.

Oops... you stuck a comma in there by mistake, Lance... <G>

I was telling a colleague about this thread and he mentioned this ice cream
and beer thing.

I forgot whether it was his grandmother or his friend's grandmother, but
every night she had a bowl of vanilla ice cream topped with a Guiness
Stout.

She's 91 years old!

when we were little my sister and i used to put cheese on bread, cover
it with ketchup and stick it in the microwave until the cheese poofed
up. makes me cringe to think about it.

also pink slime is supposedly good with cream cheese and salsa. my
sister would eat the entire thing if they'd let her. i dunno i have
never tried it because my mimi makes me sour cream and onion dip cuz

As child in Liverpool, my godmother was trying to serve us canned
peaches with condensed milk. She brought the can (Heinz I think) with
the holes punched in it, but it would not pour. After widening the holes
to no avail, she removed the lid completely, and realized that it was
condensed Cream of Chicken Soup just in time.
She is now in her eighties, as this was 35 years ago, and still cracks
up if we mention condensed milk (connie onnie in the local dialect).
Love this thread.

Dixie Brewing in New Orleans makes a chocolate flavored beer called "White
Chocolate Moose". It comes in small (6-7 oz.) bottles but that's all you
really want at a sitting. Goes great with coffee and dessert.

Godiva Chocolate Liquer. Perfect on ice cream or just by itself.
And lets not even discuss what Ralph & Kacoos does with it and

Oooooh . . . sugar & butter on white bread!! Childhood flashbacks for
me! :-)

My Mom told my sister and me that they were called "Lady Fingers". (I
guess that was because she used to slice up the buttered & sugared bread
into four or five "dainty" slices!)

I don't find myself craving "Lady Fingers" nowadays, but I still just
have to have a Fluffernutter sandwich every now and then, though! (For
those of you who haven't had this delicacy, it consists of peanut butter
and marshmallow creme -- on white bread, of course!!!)

My husband turned me on to these things he and his roommates used to make in
their apartment back in college, called egg bagels: a fried egg, a slice of
american cheese, a slice of ham, and a dash of Maggi seasoning (similar to
soy sauce--the KEY ingredient in an egg bagel) all sandwiched inside a split
toasted bagel. YUM!! Not sure if Maggi seasoning is still available in
supermarkets, since we've had the same bottle forever (a little goes a long
way!), but if you can find it, try this wonderful treat!

Think I'll go make one right now...!

Well, this marks my age... I did these "pizzas", but not in a microwave.
There wasn't such a beast! I did mine in a toaster oven. Little squares
of chedder cheese on bread, dots of catsup, then in the toaster until the
toast toasts and the cheese melts. One of my regular after school snacks.

This has to be better than the microwave version, since the bread becomes
crunchy!

Oh, my other after school snack was a honeymoon salad with bleu cheese dressing.

I don't remember if I posted this before (sort of a Clinton memory loss or
is that a Reagan??)

One day, when I was a kid, my sister and I asked the babysitter (a nice
little old Gentile lady) to make us Matzo Ball soup. We used the
ready-made Mother's mazo balls in the jar and put them into the simmering
chicken broth...

When she served the soup, it tasted TERRIBLE. I noticed the jar she had
on the kitchen counter which happened to be Mother's Gefilte Fish.
Yep....she grabbed the wrong jar (hey, she was a goy...matzo balls and
gefilte fish can look equally strange to the untrained eye!!). We told her
-- then PLEADED with her -- that she had made Gefilte Fish soup rather
than matzo ball soup...but she made us eat every single bite since we
requested it!!!!

Sorry if you've heard it before...but it sure is good for a repost!!! ;-)

I'm with Becca on this one.

Since Pepto Bismol has always had an adverse affect on me (I still can't
eat anything wintergreen flavored without feeling nauseated), this
sounds like an Ipecac sundae to me.

You forgot the splash of Worcestershire sauce and a couple flakes of
oregano. :-) Butter/margarine under the cheese is optional.

Definitely tasty in a toaster oven!

I do grilled PB&J. My son used to gross out until I let him try a
bite. Now mom is PO'd because he wants them all the time and they are
a pain to make.

I'm with you on the fries. At Fuddruckers, I like to mix mayo and
musturd for fry dip.

I also like peanut butter and mayo sandwiches.

Add banana!

And here's the COOL way to do the banana...

Cut off a short piece from one end. Then, carefully using your finger,
split the banana DOWN THE MIDDLE. It will split into thirds, making three
long narrow strips that are perfect for laying across your sandwich.

A quicker way to do this is to just bite off a small piece and use your
tongue to split the banana down the middle.

I've another ones :

- Cornflakes (again) with tomato sauce.
- Grilled fresh jalapeño chili filled with chesse (mozzarella preferently). It could be a little
hot sometimes.
- Iguana meat in green sauce.
- Escamoles (ant eggs).
- Fried or grilled krickets.
- White bread with beans and condensed milk. Yumm!
- Tortas de tamal (a french bread with a mexican tamal inside, and no other thing). It's eaten with
jalapeño chili an atole (a corn based beverage). It doesn't seems to be a light food.


I'll try to remember another weird food I've had.

See You.

The lettuce keeps the peanut butter from sticking to the roof of your
mouth. Always used to add lettuce to a peanut butter sandwich.

Do You mean psychiatrist or gastroenterolgist?, I'm kidding.
All that is really delicious.

And I have more :

- Hawaiian type hamburger. (An hamburger with a grilled pinneaple slice inside).
- Crocodile meat.
- French bread with fresh chesse and honey.
- Chicatana's sauce. (A sauce made out of a kind of flying ants. It's made in Huatusco, a small
town near Veracruz, in Mexico).
- Pumpkin flowers in taco, with white chesse and chicharron (fried skin pork). And red hot chili
sauce, naturally.
- Fried cow guts, with garlic and chili, in soft fried tortillas, called 'garnachas'. Yummm!
- Banana coins. Grenn banana fried slices with salt. Delicious! ( But don't do it with Tabasco
type banana).
- Pasta soup chicken flavored with Coca-Cola (Classic, of course).

See You later boys, I'm going to look for some food.

Isn't the Wisconsin State Motto "Eat Cheese or Die!" ?

I believe I saw it on their license plates...

Try Guggenheim"s in the Galleria area (on Post Oak). I don't know if they
have it...but if anyone has it they will.
Also, check out the wonderful beet horseradish at Kahn's in the Village
(opened for lunch only).

If they're still open, Alfred's on Stella Link would no doubt have
it.

Sorry to say Al passed away a few years ago, and Alfred's has been closed

Guiness Stout goes _real_ well with cheesecake - the dense solid sort that has
nothing 'extra' in it, but may be topped with fruit.

I found this out a few years back in San Antonio. At the Kangaroo Court on the
Riverwalk, who made the right sort of cheesecake.

Try corn _bread_ with ketchup. Best if it is the sweet(er) sort of cornbread.

Yummy! :-)

If you haven't already, try "Durkee's" dressing. It's got a taste that is
somewhere between mayo and (mild brown) mustard, and, IMO, preferrable to
either.
