(Today I am taking a cue from my dear friend, Pam and re-visiting a post from my early days. It's silly and reminds me how much I love my Grandma Gigi and her Pop-Tart eatin' ways! I am taking a day of rest so I can get back to my super stalking, comment love spreadin' ways tomorrow! Hope you have an iron stomach!)
My grandma Gigi eats PopTart and bologna sandwiches.
PopTarts as the bread part and bologna as the filler! Oh...and they have to be strawberry PopTarts. What the?!
The first time I saw her do this I stared in disbelief. She giggled and kept eating it.
"It's good!" she assured me.
"Hey, if it works for you, Gigi, then I'm good," I smiled (a fake smile because inside I was mortified!)
"You want me to make you one?" she asked, licking her lips.
This is a sandwich that I can't even be in the same room with, let alone attempt tasting it.
"No thank you," I ran from the roomi in horror. Seriously, Gigi?! PopTarts and bologna?! Super yuck!
My other grandma (who is watching me from Heaven...and hopefully will not haunt me for this little tidbit I'm about to share...) liked to eat hog brains and pickled pigs feet. Can you imagine?! What kind of crazy family was I born into?!
I'm not a picky eater. I am willing to try just about anything. I've even tried rattlesnake and chocolate covered crickets. I draw the line at breakfast pastries and deli meats in sandwich form. No way...no how. And pickled pigs feet? You don't know where they've been!?! Eeewww!
My mom eats peanut butter on her pancakes. My dad, son of the hog brains lady, eats like a normal person....not too exciting...(probably because he was surrounded by hog brains and pickled pigs feet as a kid...)
The most exciting thing I've seen my husband eat is Lea and Perrins sauce on his steak. I know people that put jelly in their soup beans and ketchup on scrambled eggs. I don't know if I would eat it, but still not too freaky.
I did actually eat clam chowder and chase it with a nice hot cocoa when I was pregnant. That was a lovely meal. (My intestines, however, didn't see it that way and quickly "returned to sender.")
Now that I've made myself nice and nauseous before breakfast, I think I'll wrap up this post. My kids are hungry for their morning meal of fried cactus and diet coke.
Ok..so what's the weirdest thing you've eaten? Do you like strange food combinations? Come on, friends! Spill it!
Enjoy your Thursday!
