What Unusual Concoctions Do You Enjoy?

Recommended Posts

My FIL makes fried okra in cornmeal. It's not mushy or gooey like canned or steamed okra. I'm pretty sure he uses frozen. It's of the main things I look forward to at the holidays. That and my MIL's potato salad...

Hmm.... I've got some recipes to get.

Another one I thought of that my dad and his family used to do all the time was canned asparagus with mayo. My husband brought home a can of asparagus yesterday, having never had canned asparagus, and I made another convert out of him. :lol:

I just remembered something else I used to put on mashed potatoes - mustard! It's really not bad, although I don't do it too often anymore.

Okay - a concoction I can not have anymore.

Spinach with A1 sauce. It is AWESOME. But A1 is gluten. So no more.

I had this on hand, ironically:

Fake A-1

1/2 c. each: OJ and raisins

1/4 c. each: soy sauce and vinegar

2 tbsp. each: dijon, ketchup, chili sauce

1 tbsp. grated orange peel

Bring all to a boil, then boil and stir for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat, let it cool. Put in blender 'til smooth. Stays 3 months in fridge. I've yet to try it, but it sounds easy and tasty enough!

I am one of those people. :D I really don't know what okra is. I'm from a place where we think it's weird when people don't understand fish tacos :D:lol:

Well, there ya have it...I've not heard of fish tacos before. What kind of fish do you use? Is it like a beef taco with fish. I bet it would be really good with a side of fried okra

:D:lol::rolleyes::lol::D

A1- does it have soy sauce in it? That might be the culprit.

Fried okra! Yummmmm!

I think my favorite thing of all time isn't that weird but some people thought so. It's Ben and Jerry's chubby hubby- vanilla ice cream with chocolate covered, peanut butter filled pretzels and fudge and peanut butter swirls. 26 g of fat per serving. YUMMMM! hershey's is actually coming out with a candy bar called Take Five that is essentially the candy bar version of Chubby Hubby. It's the best.

Actually- I'm thinking about making my own version. Hhaagen Daaz vanilla ice cream, Glutino gluten free pretzels, some fudge and peanut butter. I'll let you know how it goes if I do. Drooling!

LOL. Fish tacos aren't like your typical ground beef taco. They are much better :) It's usually something like grilled mahi mahi, or a beer battered fish (if you're a non-celiac eating at a place called Rubios). The fish is in a corn tortilla with stuff like shredded cabbage, fresh salsa, sometimes avocado. mmmm. add some fried okra and you'd have a pretty interesting culinary blend :lol:

A1 in the US is made by Kraft--read the label, no gluten on the label means no gluten in the product. My bottle at home is gluten-free. Ate it last night...

Thanks Jen! I almost panicked when I read the comment about A-1. I couldn't figure out how I had missed gluten on the label - guess I hadn't!

I don't know why I let you people draw out this kind of information!!?

mashed potatoes wrapped in lettuce

slice of ham wrapped around a dill pickle, chopped raw onions

pancakes with butter, sprinkle with sugar, roll it and it's a sugar baby

put peanut butter on a plate sprinkle with chocolate chips and nuke for a few seconds, till it's melted and gooey

I'm part Finnish, never had the lutefisk, but I have had smoked or canned fish more times than I can remember.

I once had potato chip cookies ( sounds really sick right?) They were made with Ruffles potato chips, from a recipe on the bag from the 60's (so I was told) They were the best cookie I ever had! If anyone has that recipe let me know. I will figure out how to convert it to gluten free.

Hey Mango04, that fish taco sounds really good. What else do I need to know if I want to make some? Yummmmmm!

Mommida, mashed potatoes wrapped in lettuce??? What a peculiar combination of texture. Seriously, how do you keep the mashed potatoes from squishing out when you bite into the lettuce. I mean lettuce takes a little force to bite through and mashed potatoes are so....mashed.

I have loved reading through these responses! LOL... and we've wondered at our digestive issues ;)

Cornbread with chopped bacon and shredded cheese added to batter or crushed pineapple added to batter. Put in muffin tins and eat for breakfast with coffee.
