    Default What's the weirdest food combo that actually tasted good?

    Today, one of the kids decided to add peanut butter to ramen noodles. I mean really...how wrong it that? Turns out it's quite tasty although I'm not quite ready to admit that to them.

    What combination have you seen or tried that just seemed wacko, but tasted pretty good?

    Oh boy.. I'll have to think about this one... but have to ask -- just how many times did you reheat that coffee or...... were you drinkin' something else

    I lost count, but know it was over five times...then I gave up and started on something else -- straight water. lol

    However, I'm going on kid word for this one. Both Jon and Robin agreed that it's a great combination. Plus the batch disappeared, so guess at least it's a way to sneak a little protein into an otherwise kind of nutritionally crappy lunch.

    My mom claims peanut butter and cucumber sandwiches taste great.

    My sister likes banana & peanut butter grilled sandwiches.

    I'll have to really think about that one- I don't know how much weird we do- blueberry bagels with PB is about as weird I can come up with at the moment. I know it doesn't have to be peanutbutter, but now that it's on my mind that's what I'm thinking of

    Peanut butter & ramen noodles isn't that much different from the classic Asian noodle dish with peanut sauce, just a bit less spicy.

    One thing I make in summer that has everyone scratching their head but that everyone ends up loving is Caesar Salad tossed with penne pasta. It makes the salad more substantial as an entree, and the pasta soaks up the flavors of the dressing and juxtaposes nicely with the crunch of the croutons. I also might add grilled shrimp if the people I'm serving eat seafood.

    And sometimes when I'm warming up leftover mashed potatoes, I add salsa & a bit of cheese to them. Yummmm!!!!

    I was thinking the same thing about Ramen noodles and PB...that'd it'd be a bit like Pad Thai.

    Growing up we would always eat grape jelly on top of our grilled cheese sandwiches. My DH thinks it's the weirdest thing but now my kids like it.

    I grew up eating peanut butter, mayo, and banana sandwiches. We also had just tomato with mayo sandwiches. I still eat these. Everyone I know thinks it's weird, but it was so normal, like the same normal as it is to eat spaghetti. My husband won't even try these. It looks like I'm trying to get him to eat bugs or something. I don't remember how turtle tastes because I was so little but my dad used to catch turtles in the yard and cook them. Yes, he was a weird one and I just thank God I don't remember those days. lol

    It's not weird lol It's common to find something like this on Asian menus.

    Look at this yummmmmmmy dish!

    I just wanna eat it up!



    The combination of peanut butter, soy sauce, red pepper and brown sugar makes this dish Thai. The grilled chicken, coleslaw mix and chopped peanuts makes it absolutely delicious...and it's ready in just 30 minutes.

    What You'll Need

    1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's? Condensed Cream of Mushroom with Roasted Garlic Soup
    1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
    3 tablespoons soy sauce
    2 tablespoons lime juice
    2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    1 package (6 ounces) refrigerated fully-cooked grilled chicken strips (about 1 1/2 cups)
    1 package (16 ounces) vermicelli pasta, cooked and drained
    2 cups coleslaw mix
    1/3 cup chopped dry-roasted peanuts
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves (optional)


    How to Make It


    1 Heat the soup, peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar and red pepper in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Add the chicken and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Remove the skillet from the heat.

    2 Add the pasta and coleslaw mix to the skillet and toss to coat. Sprinkle with the peanuts and cilantro, if desired.
