Thought it might be fun to see the crazy things Redzoners do to their food.

I like to put dark chocolate Raisinets in my Cocoa Crispies. Awesome.

Anybody else?

I like mixing a can of tuna with catsup and hot sauce and putting it on crackers. With beer, of course.

I used to by the spanish rice Rice A Roni and put tuna and catsup in it too.

Tabasco on popcorn is pretty good sometimes.

I can eat hot sauce and mustard on just about anything. That's probably not unique to me, but one of those two are on just about everything I eat.

I drink tabasco sauce, actually I prefer really hot habanero sauce :help: My ex-boyfriend used to freak out about this. But I hate to cook, and tabasco sauce is filling, and I like spicy food.

Now THIS is something that's crazy, but is actually delicious: Ritz crackers, peanut putter, cherry tomato slice, salt. Voila, it's a meal, and one that melts in your mouth. you may laugh, but go try it. I learned this from a real chef, by the way.

Is that cats or catsup? I'm calling PETA! :lol:


I like bologna, cheese, peanut butter and potato chip sandwiches. I've been eating them since high school.

I like putting CATSUP in my homemade beef and noodles.

Your not alone on that. Thought I would add a couple of mine being from the south.

Tomato Sandwich - White bread, homegrown tomatoes, salt, pepper, and real (preferably Dukes) Mayonaise (never miracle whip)

Slaw Dogs - Hot dogs with Slaw, chili, onions, ketchup, and mustard.

No tomatoes. Ever.

Spaghetti with no sauce. Pizza with no sauce. Fries with no ketchup.

Tomatoes cause cancer. I can prove this because I don't eat tomatoes and I don't have cancer. Irrefutable evidence.

The weirdest thing I do eat is popcorn kernels -- the unpopped variety you find in the bottom of the popcorn bowl. The half-popped ones are good, too.

:laugh:

Shaun Ryder of the Happy Mondays is adamant about not eating tomatoes. Somebody asked him why once in an interview, and he said it's because he grew up next to a sewage yard. Get this -- the human body does not digest tomato seeds, so the seeds would sprout amongst the human waste and the landfill was always covered in tomato plants. He said that it was quite beautiful, but he's never been able to eat tomatoes because he associates it with, well, feces.

That turned me off from tomatoes for a while, but not for too long. I'm Italian and my family has a hard enough time with my being a vegetarian, they'd disown me if I gave up tomatoes. But I am always surprised at the amount of people I run across who won't eat them. And they're always ADAMANT about it.

My friend was telling me the other day she was told by a TB Employee that the meat is more Soy then Moo... she said they don't mark it as ground beef in the kitchen.

Wouldn't surprise me at all.

I had a friend in HS who would eat tuna fish, mixed with mac and cheese, ketchup and applesauce.

Since I don't eat meat there isn't really anything too weird that I eat, though my wife thinks it's weird that I'l make my own Meza Plates.

In HS I went through a phase where I ate Peanut Butter and Marshmellow whip sandwiches slathered in Wheat Germ and also Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches.

There was a time in college when I'd steal some ketchup packets and saltines from the local fast food joint (the BBF at OU) and make "tomato" soup out of it.

yeah, the "only thing" I do to my food these days is make sure it's good.

But when I was poor and in college (no dorm, no money from home) I ate plenty of potatos... plenty and I did a ton of weird things to them... baked with Blu Cheese Dressing all over it.... just one of the ways.

To this day I have a hard time looking at baked potatos because of the ten thousand I ate in the 80's.

Chip agrees with you - two years ago at the Redszone gathering he told me how he likes to spread it all over his body and let his cats lick it off. At the time I thought it was wierd and inappropriate for him to tell that to me, but at least now it gives me something to add to the conversation!

Other than purposely over-cooking things, a few goofy ones of mine are:

-If it's not an Italian meal, I like dipping garlic bread in ketchup
-Sunday breakfast includes 2 soy sausages, with cashews on the side
-Tomato sandwiches (ciabatta bread and roma tomatoes, nothing else)

When I was a kid my mom used to pack my lunches with peanut butter and chipped beef sandwiches. I haven't eaten that in years, but I liked it back then.

And I still like peanut butter and bacon sandwiches.

One thing I always do at a local restaurant is to order their breakfast special - eggs and chopped, fried potatos. I order the eggs over easy, then put them on the potatos and mix it all up. It's not weird, but my friends always take note of the process.

This isn't a weird food thing in and of itself, but a sequence thing: my family has salad after the main course instead of before. This is an Italian thing, I think. It's probably better for digestion.

I babysat three little kids in France, and I told them about peanut butter once. they were fascinated. Kids there eat Nutella on baguettes, but not peanut butter. So I bought some for them to try, I had to go to the American grocery store to get it. It freaked them out, two out of three of them hated it (and I think the third one was just trying to be nice.) I myself cannot imagine childhood without peanut butter.

They LOVED American bread though. They were not allowed to have it very often. Even the shape of it killed them.

Our family does that as well. I had salad before a meal once and it killed me. Could barely eat the main course. For some reason it works so much better the other way around.

Also when you go out to eat at a restraunt the waiter will look at you weird when he brings your salad out early and you don't eat it. You get another weird look when he goes to take the salad away before bringing your main course. I've since learned that you should tell them to bring the salad out after the main course to avoid several weird looks throughout the meal.

My semi-educated guess is that the roughage is hard on your stomach, so it's better not to eat it on an empty one. After the main course, you've got something in your stomach, but you still get your salad vitamins.

I am a one at a time person, and that drives everyone else in my family crazy. If I have three items on my plate, I will eat one in its entirety before moving on to the next. I usually start with the meat, then the vegetables, and if there's bread it is the last to be consumed. I've always thought it strange when I see people eat a couple bites of one thing then a couple of something else before the first thing is finished.
