4me and chopper's post have everything I like.. lol

When I was a kid, I loved Miracle Whip and iceberg lettuce sandwiches. I know, I'm a strange bird. My mom and I make macaroni salad using half mayo and half MW. She adds tuna to hers though. And I even love tuna-noodle casserole.

Where I come from (I hear that Alan Jackson song), there is a restaurant known for its fish fries. They serve a big piece of fried haddock with a nice wedge of lemon, coleslaw and fries. I can't imagine any kind of seafood (well, shrimp, lobster, scallops, etc) without lemon. I love broiled fish with Old Bay and a squeeze of lemon juice. YUM!

A few years back, I made a ham with pineapple and cherries on Christmas Eve for Mark.

My grandma used to make the "marshmallow salad" all the time for birthdays and other occasions. I even love the green bean casserole with the french-fried onions on top. I guess my family has been a big influence on me

As far as fish tacos... when I make them, I like to use Rotel tomatoes, iceberg lettuce and whatever cheese I have on hand.

I guess it's all in a person's personal preference.

One thing I will never understand is I've seen some people eat potato chips on sandwiches. I've never tried it, so I really don't know. That seems strange.

Fish tacos sounds wrong to me, but I like them ;)

I'm really not a fan of pineapple with ham or pizza. A little bit of mint jelly is good with lamb, provided the mint jelly is not green.

I'm not really a person who says "wrong" but sometimes I read a recipe and I think "yuck."

I'll have to watch "Bizarre Food" with Andrew Zimmern. I'm sure I could come up with a lot of bad food combos.

"when the dawg bites, when the bee stings, when i'm feeling sad"...

thanks dawg, now i'll have the sound of music in my head all night.

i used to shy away from fried fish tacos, but then i had a grilled grouper taco and it was delicious with a little onion, tomato, cilantro, lime, and a splash or three of hot sauce.

about the only combos i dislike are orange and cream, like a creamsicle, and i don't like cranberry with dairy, or drinking juice after brushing my teeth.

Crest toothpaste and grapefruit juice. Forgot about that one! Thanks, BT!

Mmmmm...dreamsicle! I love orange and cream!

Sure don't like cucumbers pickled in any way. They are great just the way they come out of the garden.

Oh yeah that's a really bad one. I got sick from an Orange Julius once and that was it for anything orange/cream tasting.
