Port Wine Cheese is a favorite snack of my husband’s…
rptyper – If you added cream cheese to your recipe and left out the raisins, you’d have one of my favorites! Mix a lump of cream cheese, some butter, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, and a dash of salt. Let it sit in the fridge if you can. The measurements are entirely up to you. I have mixed up some in a coffee mug just to satisfy a craving.
A friend and i would make a double deckers sandwich—on toastef Pepperidge farm white bread–fried egg with bacon with mayo on one layer–hamburger with lettuce tom and mustard on the bottom—-but the one all my friends thought was weird was the one my fishermans wife grandmother would get for us after school—broiled tinker mackerel!
Peanuts poured into a bottle of Coke are one of my favorites to this day…
I used to mix up margarine (Crisco if we were low on margarine),Hershey’s cocoa powder, powdered sugar, and sometimes raisins. I called it make up. I only made it when my mom was not home. 🙂 When she was there it was time for an apple.
We dropped our peanuts one by one into all the different sodas but I liked dropping them into Coke the best.
My grandpa dipped saltines in his vanilla ice cream, which led me to dip potato chips and pretzels in mine. I still do this — in all flavors of ice cream.
A neighbor friend and I, as children, dunked buttered toast in our cocoa and in our hot (sweet) tea. I haven’t done this in a while, but I may just try it again tonight.
I still butter saltines.
Small amounts of raw burger with a dash of salt.
I remember eating those buttered saltines, and also making spaghetti sandwiches.
Not nearly as weird as most of the posts so far but when I was a kid, my mom put chocolate and/or vanilla ice cream in a big hot bowl of oatmeal. I loved it. I haven’t had it since childhood but I would definitely have it again!
I had a friend who had a soda fountain in her house. I used to put Coke syrup over chocolate ice cream.
I also liked lime sherbet mixed with chocolate ice cream.
Mom used to make us frosting sandwiches with her left over frosting an graham crackers
Me too X1…
I liked raw corn as a kid.
And raw peas and raw green beans.
Raw okra pods and raw peeled potatoes…
Greek cookies and candies were not, to me, weird, but they sure were to my friends!
Remember that scene in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", where everyone is trading around PB&Js and Ham & Cheese sandwiches, and she’s eating (I think) Pastitsio or something?
That’d be me. LOL
As a kid, though, we’d do odd things – sugar and butter on baked on strips of phyllo dough and eaten plain or with ice cream or dipped in creme caramel….certain cookies dipped in chocolate or (of all things!) Raspberry jelly…..leftover tiropita or spanakopita, cold, right from the fridge…..
