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.
I love potato chips on sandwiches- especially sloppy joes. It just adds some crunch! I've been racking my brain trying to think of some combination of foods that I don't like, and I think I like just about anything edible lol. I like just about everything you all have named other than the toothpaste and juice. Maybe fruit and cheese? I don't get that one.

chips on sandwiches? yessirree!

a sandwich my mom made for me a lot when i was a kid was a "brooklyn special".

boiled ham, lettuce, and mayo on white bread with a side of kosher dill pickles. but i kicked it up a notch and added doritos. they add spice and a different kind of crunch than the lettuce, so it's both a taste and texture thing.

another fave along the same lines is potato chips and raw red onions on tuna sandwiches.

I wear combinations in the winter, in fact a north wind is predicted for Saturday so I have them on now.

I am not a fan of booze in my food unless it has been cooked.

When I was in my teens my Mother went through her Julia Child period and everything was soaked in booze a la Betty Ford.
