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.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

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.

I'm thinking the same thing, Tattrat!

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
