Hi All, My wife despairs of me! And one of the biggest shakes of her head is me and food. My Mum was a cook and baker of wedding cakes, So you would think some where this talent would have got passed on! but oh no! I think the problem is I will try to mix and won,t except some thing don,t go with others! The worst is Sandwiches! My favourite is salad just a quite plain lettuce, tomato may be cucumber and some dressing! Ok so far? but the next step is important. It has to sit for a few hours, go soggy, get hard at the edges!!! So any other weird folk out their as i would like some new ideas and it don,t have to be sandwiches!! :-)

Ha.. thats funny.  Same here, simple salad O.K... soaked into bread for a few hours, not so much!

We all have our food quirks, especially since becoming ostomates! Good to keep laughing.

John...my husband could nauseate me just watching his food choices.  He deserves a little recognition here.  His moment of fame after his death.  

He loved pizza, not matter what it had on it, but he loved it cold the next day for breakfast or a snack  with tons of peanut butter on it and sometimes even syrup..  Just remembering this is gross.  He also oddly enough enjoyed a bit of a Mennonite thing...toast with cheddar  cheese and honey or a syrup on it.  Dare you to give this a try!  Lets have a report.

Some where in China leaves fell into some boiling water and tea was discovered!! Walter Raleigh introduced us to the potato!! If it was not for people like yer late Husband and me pushing the boundaries taking risks where would we be!! I have been a proud member of the cold pizza club and will have to try the toast mix up. Cheers Linda for making it known that their are more of us out their lol. :-)

Cold pizza can be pretty amazing.... Topped with peanut butter and syrup? I have not attempted that! 😂😂

Peanut butter and syrup on pancakes is divine, and cold pizza for breakfast I will do almost every time I have leftover pizza.  I'm not sure about combining the two, but, to each his own!

I like Pizza cold or hot morning or night with crushed red chili or chili powder  but I have to agree I don't know about the peanut butter ! Haha . I don't do much for veggies so John I would have to pass on your sandwich there Lad Haha . Here's one I don't think is strange but my wife does she won't even eat it . Hamburger and baked beans mixed together with maybe a touch of brown sugar and spices as you would like have eaten it since I was a kid  . I was born in the Midwest (Iowa) my wife says its weird Midwestern cooking . Lol . Sasquatch I agree with ya on the pancakes n butter n syrup but again I don't know about peanut butter . Haha . How about deviled eggs with bacon n cheese and garnish of Carolina Reaper chili powder ???

I love beans...baked also with the hamburger in it.  Very good.  But my hubbies pizza and peanut butter and syrup  thing....that leaves Gravol to be desired!  Peanut butter and syrup and pancakes was the usual in our house.  How about gravy on top of a slice of fresh baked bread when you are still  hungry after dinner?  We grew up on that.  With five kids and a single income, two parents.  My mother always baked her own bread, 14 loaves a week.  The times I made the bread, my dad would stand behind me and say in a whisper..."don't tell your mother but I like your bread so much better."   I used milk and extra eggs.

Hi Linda . Yes that is it Baked Beans straight out of the can for me and Hamburger hence Hamburger n Beans good stuff . Haha . And the gravy you bet I love gravy we will have biscuits n sausage gravy (which is my favorite) and when the biscuits are gone I will put it on bread ... Sounds like you are a good bread maker ! I do make Artisan Bread sometimes and I have made Blueberry Bread in my air fryer a few times . Both kinds are great when still warm with butter !!

Hi all,

My favorite thing right out of the refrigerator is cold mash potatoes. I love potatoes any way I can get 'em!

the thing I dont understand is how is there any pizza left over ?  I will eat it a bit cooler but never have the chance to put any away in the fridge , 

the best leftover food is potatoes fried with finely chopped onion and a little thyme mixed in as well , with baked beans and some nice pork sausages , the breakfast of champions , add a few eggs over easy is taking as a hangover cure ,

I love my ostomy , I have eaten without consequences for the last two years and I'm loving it

Cold potatoes are so good! I do tend to add a little oil to them as cold potatoes tend to get dry.

Hi there...I was so glad I found this again. My eyes have had fun with me, some days I could read, others not. Yes, even blowing up the size of print would fail. They are changing but for the better. My Moms eyes did this 20 years ago. She went from needing bifocal glasses for everything all her life, to not needing them any more at all. Optometrists have no explanations for it and most have never had a patient have this happen.  Now, mine seem to be joining the party. Anyways, I have so loved the laughs here over the strange food combinations, but I noticed I forgot to add mine in there. When we had mashed potatoes, my mother would always open a jar of home canned tomatoes, and we would put them cold over our spuds. As a married women, I heat the tomatoes first. The spuds have to be lumpy mash, not the whipped pasty sticky to death kind. Cold mashed...? Really you guys? I ate so many cold meals when I was in the hospital for that year, that I have trouble eating a cold cooked meal even know. I have to make it hot on the plate and warm my plates before dinner on the back burner of the stove where the oven heat escapes from. We would eat left over mashed in slices, or a patty, fried in the pan with butter crispy on each side. If meat was not available we had plenty of fried eggs to go with it. We seem to have several newer osties here these days, I would love to hear what your weird or bazaar food choices are. Join the conversation.

Linda
