WC 080322



Last Wednesday was crazy and I didn't get to post pictures of my library. It's not very big anymore. My eyesight won't let me read hard copy anymore and I've given most of my books away to Big Brothers and Big Sisters. I have an extensive library on my Kindle. I've replaced many of the books I gave away as e-books.

Today's challenge is the weirdest food I love.

Quite a challenge, I'm not very adventurous when it comes to food, as a diabetic I am on a pretty strict diet, not that I stay on it much as my A1C tells me.

This is from an old (early 1960's) TV advertisement from Kraft recipes. Take Philidelphia Cream Cheese and a can of chopped olives. Mix together, chill in the fridge and spread on celery. Good on Ritz vegetable crackers too.

I like a can of Chili with beans and add a packet of crushed red chile.

Instead of putting pickle relish on a hot dog I use chopped green chile. Costco sells small packets of green chile in a bundle. Not weird in New Mexico.

I like Thai food but made the mistake of once ordering it Thai hot. Hot is equal to Habanero, Thai hot could strip the enamel off of a car. An experience only to be done once. 

My Mom once tried to cook beef tongue, but never again we wouldn't eat it.

Sorry no snails or frog's legs and I shudder at the thought of raw fish.

I’d never heard of that Philadelphia cream cheese recipe before!

And I will never offer you frog legs. Hehe.

Thai hot is what I ask for when I desperately need to unclog my sinuses!

Judy said...

I love Thai food.... and yep, like Michael, the hot is great for sinus issues! Cream cheese/olive spread is an old favorite of ours... and it makes a pretty good sandwich spread as well. mmmm....haven't made it in a bit...I think it's time!

I like Thai food. Actually, growing up, one of my favorite sandwiches was cream cheese and olives.

Give it a try, Lydia, it's simple and easy.

Just make sure you have asbestos underwear, Michael.

P M Prescott said...

Thanks, Judy, didn't know there were that many fire eaters out there.

P M Prescott said...

Nice to know Sheri.

My grandmother used to make pimento cheese similarly: cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, and pimentos. She died years ago, but I can taste that now...she'd make me a homemade pimento cheese sandwich!

I'm glad I brought back a pleasant memory,Laura.

I also love Thai food but never order it Thai hot. It really does blow your face off.

P M Prescott said...

In total agreement, Tanith.
