Funky Food Combinations

Tammy | Jul 19, 2000 12:04 PM

As I sat munching on a new found snack craving (peanut butter & fresh tomato on toasted bread, bagel or pita)-I thought about all the fun food inventions that I have learned from family & friends throughout my life and they have all been good!)

Non-chowhounds would defintely sneer or turn up their noses at some of them. I could never for the life of me understand why they would not at least try them!
I was fortunate to have been raised with the theory - don't knock it until you've tried it!

My Mom regularly made me peanut butter & sweet pickle sandwiches when I was a young girl. My friends all thought it was bizarre. I also took to my Dad's very favorite combo - cream cheese, sliced radishes, yellow mustard, salt n pepper sandwiches. yum. I remember him making them as a snack & me standing next to hime with my mouth open ready for a bite. Still make them today!

Another interesting combo belonged to my friends younger brother - his fave was peanut butter, cheese & ketchup...okay I admit, I thought it was odd, but I really loved all those ingredients and decided I would join him. I became his best buddy, cuz I was the ONLY person that would even consider his sandwich as worthy!

So fellow chowhounds, I am intrigued (and also would loved to try some new found funky food combo's of yours) Do tell!!!
