Hi and welcome to Friday Fun Facts! Come play along and learn something new about me, and I’ll learn something new about you.
Each Friday I will post a question (something fun, maybe a bit quirky, it’s Friday after all) and include my answer. You can join the fun and post your own answer by clicking the comment button below!
Since it’s now the month of November…Turkey Month, I have geared my questions toward subjects related to Thanksgiving! YUM!
When I think of November I automatically think of food! How about you? It’s that time of year that is the kick-off to the holiday season. I think of family and friends getting together and celebrating with lots of good eats, having wonderful times and making awesome memories.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! Not just because I’m surrounded by family and friends and good food. But because this is the one holiday that, to me at least, is stress free. I don’t have to worry about shopping, my budget, finding a unique gift, driving around in snowy, cold weather, and massive amounts of decorating or singing Christmas carols off key. Lol I don’t have to worry about making it to midnight, which President we’re celebrating and what to get my sweet for Heart Day 🙂 You get the picture, I won’t go through the entire calendar.
Anyway, as I was thinking about the holiday this year and actually talking with my husband about the dinner coming up in only a few more Thursdays, it got me to thinking of all that food. Endless tables of food. Cheese and crackers, fruit, veges and dip, pies, homemade stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn, green bean casserole…..oh my and of course Turkey…the list is endless.
To me there’s nothing better than mixing corn into my mashed potatoes and smothering it with gravy and bits of turkey, oh and a few spoonfuls of homemade stuffing. I’m getting full just thinking about it, but I’m smiling baby! Lol
It’s funny to think of all those weird food combinations that people come up with and love. Scrambled eggs or macaroni and cheese dripping with a good glob of ketchup, cottage cheese covered in maple syrup, peanut butter and marshmallow sandwiches, pretzels dipped in mustard, saltine cracker and ketchup sandwiches, chocolate cake washed down with a tall cool glass of OJ…okay, is anyone’s stomach churning yet? I know some of these combos sound odd, but I have either tried them myself or know someone that loves these foods together. I won’t mention names due to privacy issues 🙂
Scary and a bit weird isn’t it? 🙂
This brings me to….Drum roll please! Today’s Friday Fun Facts question is…
What type of foods do you pair together that you either sneak away to eat in the solitude of a closet—hoping against hope that nobody discovers your secret, or brazenly eat in the open to the groans and gags of those around you? Can’t wait to hear the oddities!
