I learned that one when I became a Beier. My in-laws do that all the time and I love it!

When I was growing up Rice-A-Roni came in a Vermicelli flavour with almonds. I would make it in a skillet, adding canned mushrooms and using the liquid from the mushrooms as part of the water for the rice. I would eat that as my full meal, sometimes the whole box in one sitting! I don't see that flavour any more and don't buy prepared foods but it is a fond memory!

When I was in college, one of my roommates thought I was a wonderful cook (??) as I would make Minute Rice with Velveeta. I also made spaghetti sauce with ketchup as the primary ingredient. My weight loss secret back then was a diet of cottage cheese mixed with white raisins, cinnamon, and sugar-free cream soda. It actually wasn't bad.

Nowadays, we do mix and match leftovers too.

I still do that once in a while.

I love to take left over pork, chicken, or even beef (though pork is my favorite) tear it up into pieces and roll it into a warm buttered flour tortilla shell. I don't think it's weird but my boyfriend does.

We've been weird forever. Sauerkraut on mashed potato all the time with ribs.
Weirder is a bowl of popcorn for dinner.

Butter on saltines...Dad taught us about that in the restaurant when they used to put them on the table before the meal. Kraut on mashed potatoes, yup the others ate them that way...I still won't eat the kraut.

Most of my one off leftovers get made into my bento lunches. But, I like macaroni with tuna and tomato sauce. Kipper snacks and crackers with cream cheese.

When I was little, we used t have popcorn for supper on Sunday nights all of the time. I think it is because we had a big meal mid day.

At our house we have YO YO nights quite often. It means You're on your own. I have been known to eat cottage cheese and potato chips or black beans with corn chips on those nights.

Absolutely nothing weird about Ruffles Sour Cream and Onion chips and cottage cheese. I could eat that every day. And end up weighing 350 pounds. So chips are verboten here.

We did the Sunday night popcorn at our house also.

We always had red delicious apples and or concord grape juice with it.

My father liked it in a glass of milk with a teaspoon of sugar sprinkled on it.

Perfect! I've never heard that phrase before, but its absolutely accurate. "Weird" to me doesn't mean leftovers in any combination. Lets face it, leftovers ROCK.

My weird meals are just things I feel like eating that are really not a meal in any way, shape or form. I love hearing about some of the other weirdness around here. For a bunch of foodies we can eat some pretty strange stuff from time to time.

I am about to confess something that might get me booted off the site forever. Here it is, I loathe and despise mashed potatoes. As I kid if I were forced to eat them they often came right back up. Its a texture thing. My Mom, however, felt they were an important part of my nutritional plan and kept trying to find ways to make me eat them. She tried, sauerkraut, turnip, gravy, cheese, and finally found the one thing that would get me to eat a few tablespoons of mashed potato. Pickles. If she cut the pickle vertically and then piled the mashed potatoes on top of the cut pickle I'd eat them, and *gasp* enjoy them! One pickle limit though.

Still won't eat mashed potatoes often. Blech. But pickles....mmmmmmmm!

Weird food moment of the day. Hummus eaten with peapods again instead of chips. Delish.
