    I don't understand the question. Do you mean ever or regularly?

    I've tried some weird foods, but my daily diet is pretty mundane.

    My Scandanavian grandma made sure I ate my share of lutefisk as a kid, so i don't have to as an adult. :)

    Kraft mac n cheese with cut up spam in it. Tastes better if you fry the spam in butter first.

    Daily basis: Espresso and gummy bears. Don't ask. I love espresso, and I love gummy bears. There's something about them together that just clicks.

    Occasionally (especially when I'm in England): Instead of fish and chips, fish and salad. I'm allergic to potatoes, so I can't have the chips.

    Whenever it's available: Pesto. I will literally eat just pesto by itself, especially when it's fresh. It's so good, despite how much it turns some people off.

    Popcorn cooked on the stove in a small amount of ghee (clarified butter/high heat proof), then sprinkled with garlic salt and raisins thrown in (raisins post-cooking). Sounds weird, but it's a nice blend of salty and sweet...

    That and bone marrow at Wicked Spoon....LOVE it on good crusty bread!

    Yes. This! I pretty much lived on this and spam & eggs during some dark days of my youth. Cheap, but delicious.

    I have to ask. ;) How does this work? Do you dip or dunk them? Or melt them in? Or eat them along side. Inquiring minds.

    Alongside :) I actually never thought to dunk them. But the espresso purist in me cringes at the thought of what that would do to the texture of the liquid.

    Spam and stewed tomatoes with olives and garlic.

    Canned Vienna sausages with kim chee and white rice.

    Spaghetti and meat sauce on a bed of white rice (starch overload!)

    Burnt white rice (scorched) and canned sardines in tomato sauce. Rice has to be room temperature and the sardines in tomato sauce has to be bubbling hot.

    Ramen noodles and soup with hotdogs......

    Chicken feet
    Kim Chee (radish, napa cabbage, green onion, etc.)
    Pho' (Vietnamese beef noodle soup) with all the "mad cow" items.
    Sauteed spinach with fermented tofu
    Salt fish with rice

    Oh, and I forgot - balut. Duck embryo in the shell.

    Not a standard part of my diet but now off my "bucket list"

    Yep Sonya, I grew up in Wisconsin and had my fair share of lutefisk in my youth as well. Don't miss it one bit. I had haggis about a year ago.....never again.

    :peace: :beer:

    Friends of mine at work, often bring me oxtail and rice ( I wouldn't have a clue how to make it). Chicken gizzards, love them!

    Sauted chicken liver and with a little onion is probably the oddest thing. I only eat this when I'm cooking a whole chicken. No one else in the house wants anything to do with it.

    I am strangely drawn to foods that taste like nothing - puffed rice cereal, tofu, and I remember eating a whole bunch of Polish Christmas wafers when I was really small. I thought I was going to hell but I couldn't stop eating them! (I don't binge on Christmas wafers anymore FYI).
     
    A low strip trip? Could be….
    Boom! A comp arrives and I can’t say no
