family foods others might call odd?

mine is canned kidney beans cooked in evaporated milk with black pepper. it's a family favorite. DELICIOUS. don't knock until you try it. we all love them, especially with steak.

I won't laugh at your beans and milk but can't emagine what it would tast like. My odd food is egg noodles cooked, coated with butter and add fried ham pieces topped with ketchup.I didn't think I would like it but after i tried it I have it anytime we have a little left over ham.

When I was a girl my father used to make egg noodles with milk, butter, salt and pepper when we were feeling poorly. I still love it.

I guess I am ruining the topic by adding a family food that not even I thought was good... but it's still a nasty little story I love to share. My mother had a thing for chicken innards... probably because she was raised in Louisiana or something, I dont know. Often we had breaded livers and hearts and all that, which I learned to love.

But...

She made this soup. It was a clear broth with WHOLE livers and hearts in it in all it's anatomical detail. First of all I am very sensitive to bitter things so the soup tasted "just wrong" to me. Second... there's nothing like picking up a liver with your spoon and having a still connected heart dangle from it while you raise it to your mouth.

:?

this sounds good to me.
you drain the beans, add a can of Pet evapo and then add black pepper? is that it? I love legumes and this sounds like a sort of comfort food to me

My dad makes buttered noodles EVERY night! He doesn't put in the ham but, he sure goes through a lot of ketchup.


My husband's family is Greek and we eat a lot of lamb and goat. We love it but, people think that goat is pretty weird.
