Wherever the plane lands
So my better half and I were in Denver last week and went to a restaurant called 1515 Restaurant.

While there was absolutely nothing creative about the name of the place, their menu had some rather creative food combinations on it.

For example, this was my appetizer .

For those what are unable to see the picture, allow me to explain it. Actually, I'm pretty sure I need to explain it even if you can see the picture.

It was a Foie Gras Torchon on top of a brioche french toast, a 5 spice gelato with a chocolate syrup on top, marshmallow cream placed around the place, and, as if that didn't already sound strange enough, cherry pop-rocks.

Here's the really crazy thing, it totally all worked together!

So, what are some other bizarre food combos that work together?

Peanut butter and dill pickle sandwiches. Sweet and tart at same time. Smooth and crunchy.

I thought my family was the only one who ever ate such a thing, until the internet came along. Now I know there are quite a few people who enjoy this sandwich.

I went to visit my nephew at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana this past April. There is a locally-famous restaurant called Triple XXX that serves a little something called the "Duane Purvis Cheeseburger" which has peanut butter on it along with lettuce, tomato, and pickle. Yes, peanut butter. Sounds bizarre, but it was kind of a delicious combination, especially alongside the homemade root beer the place is known for. The place has been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

I made spaghetti once with a peanut sauce and grilled chicken. 'Twas a hit.

I like to make Beef Ramen noodles with spicy V8 juice instead of water, and I make Chicken Ramen noodles with peanut better and Sriracha sauce! Yummers! smile

That reminds me, I have to get over to a local burger joint for the skippy burger. Big juicy patty with peanut butter and chipotle-rasberry jelly. I understand that it's to die for.

I notice nobody is recommneding "tuna, water cress and bean sprouts".
Somehow we all translated unusual to mean unhealthy! Maybe that's good that its unusual for us? smile

My brother started eating his burgers with peanut butter about a year ago and swears by it. My son now does the same thing. It's actually not that bad, but I don't think I could eat an entire PB burger.

I was going to mention the PB and pickle sandwich...my absolute favorite kind of sandwich! It has to be a specific kind of pickle, though...only Nalley's Baby Dills.

Just once I would love to see a judge on chopped just say, "Well that sux!" Instead of giving a highly intellectual critique.... laugh

But that may just be me.

No... I have not even tried the Grease Trucks. I don't need to have a heart attack, but my son loved it while he was in school there. Luckily, he now knows he should not eat them. Thousands of calories for a sandwich!!
