The leftover mashed potato and kraut makes great fried potato cakes for breakfast!

Serve with some leftover fried kielbasa, chunky applesauce, eggs and rye toast dripping with butter!

Same here! I make a pork roast with kraut. The kraut goes on the mashed potatoes, the gravy on the pork!

I guess my weird meal is a spoonful of Smucker's natural peanut butter and a glass of skim milk eaten over the kitchen sink.

A quiet little spot by the water!

Okay, when we were kids, our dinner, which was a treat and we only got this when our parents went out, was spinach (the only canned vegetable my mother bought besides corn), hard boiled eggs, sardines, and saltine crackers. I still like spinach (fresh or frozen) with eggs and saltine crackers, but HATE the texture of sardines. I substitute pickled herring instead. Wonder what the babysitter thought...

And here I thought sauerkraut and mashed potatoes was a weird Kroll family tradition. After seeing how many here do the same thing, it's now seeming pretty normal.

Isn't it nice to know you're normal, Steve?Alix on the other hand...

This one isn't really weird but it is something we do when we don't know what else to have or are too lazy to cook even if we did. We buy those thin crust Dr. Oetker frozen Pizzas. Usually the roasted vegetable one. Bake it so it isn't too crispy on the bottom. Then I take it out, cut it in half and lay a bunch of sandwich ingredients on top of one half and then place the other half, cheese side down on top to make a panini type sandwich. When you cut this in half it makes two nice sized triangular sandwiches.

The pizzas are nice and thin so it makes a great sandwich filled with roasted veggies, your chosen fillings and melted cheese on both sides, that isn't all bread dough...

Kraut and mashed tater's is a tradition on the Thanksgiving table here.
Don't forget the peas because they mix in well too.



"Ice cold Boston Baked Beans. I keep the can in the fridge. I don't like them heated up. No ketchup, no doctoring, just plain right out of the can"


I like them straight out of the can too.
It's one less dish to wash.
But I like them room temperature over refrigerated.
Sometimes I'll toss in some chopped onion and a touch of mustard.



My "Weird meals" tend to be cleaning the fridge/to lazy to cook meals.

Let's see....... The other night I had.
A couple slices of leftover pizza.
Some leftover Fried cabbage & bacon.
Corn chips & hot salsa.
To top it off a Snickers bar.

Yes I have an iron stomach and the fridge is much cleaner.

I have fond memories of a package of saltines and a stick of butter in front of me lying on my stomach in front of the TV on Saturday mornings watching cartoons. Shave a curl of butter and spread on saltine. Enjoy.

One time a friend and I were hungry and she decided to make ice cream floats. Got the ice cream in the glasses, no soda pop. Only thing her mom had was grapefruit juice which she proceeded to pour over the ice cream. Decided that wasn't quite the flavor she wanted so she added Hershey's chocolate syrup. Can't believe we drank that stuff! Mine didn't stay down long.

Kraut and mashed were quite common in my household as well. The only time I don't do mashed and kraut is when I put the kraut on a dog!
