Blinded by a freshly chopped onion, I accidentaly laced my dinner with cinnamon instead of hot pepper... it was surprisingly delicious!

Well gee. I did a find on each page for 'banana', and saw that, while my particular combination wasn't mentioned, just about every other possible combo was.

...Including "x on a banana". How do I get around that?



Ohwell. I discovered this long ago - who knows how - and while everyone I've ever mentioned it to got a disgusted look on their face, everyone who I've ever talked into trying it has agreed it's got a certain... I don't know what. Behold:






Bananas and barbecue sauce.

When we have leftover rice, I like to combine it with milk, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, and sugar, and eat it for breakfast. It's like un-thickened rice pudding, basically. My husband goes on and on (every time, and it's been years now!) about how absolutely disgusting this is. I don't think this is that weird. It's a grain. It's like hot cereal. How is this all that different than oatmeal?

I think this mostly stems from an upbringing of pouring milk on cereal and nothing else, ever.

I don't even have a very confident relationship with the idea of milk and cookies, to be honest.

Sounds perfectly reasonable to me. But then again, I was raised on kheer and perugannam (yogurt-rice). Hell, we'll pour milk on anything. Doodh-chooda (milk with rice puff things), doodh-roti (milk with torn-up flatbread), doodh-doodh (milk with milk) etc.

It sounds really good, but I don't think I could stomach the consistency. It's why I never enjoyed rice pudding when I was a kid and haven't had it since.

One reason I always make extra rice is so I can have rice pudding and make rice omelets for breakfast. With soy sauce. But some folks have very strict ideas of how some foods are eaten. They are just silly people.

We always make extra rice, just because two of my kids think rice is not only a food group, it's EVERY FOOD GROUP.

Hmm, like for instance people who think that it's wrong and unnatural to eat breakfast cereal with fruit sliced into it, despite the serving suggestion on the very box? Iiiiiinteresting.

I don't really consider this too weird, but the only response I've gotten so far on this recipy has been "UEEEEEY".

Now for many years I have been making pancakes where instead of sugar I squash a banana and put that in the recipy (mainly cause I can never be bothered to buy sugar). Then at some point I stopped buy things like milk as well since I never managed to drink it all before it went bad. So now I'm getting rid of my eggs by making omelette like things containing only 2 eggs, some rye flour and a squashed banana. Yummy! But my family now teases me about putting bananas into everything (I need potassium goddammit!).

Anywas, I quite like my banana omelette, but it gets a bit boring on it's own. What to do? Oh I know! Let's combine it with tacos!

Taco-banana-omelette:

Omelette:
2 eggs
rye flour
banana

mix together and do whatever it is you do to make omelettes solid.

Toppings:
taco-meat
bell-pepper
cheese
whatever else is in the fridge

When the cheese has melted top up with sour cream and salsa. YUMMY DELICIOUS WONDERFULLNESS!

Ohhh man, now I want good cheese. I can get sour cabbage, and I have hot sauce to make it kimchi-like, but for good cheese I need to head into the city and the big supermarket. And pay double what the standard, bland orange russkyy cheese costs. Because kimchi grilled cheese sounds delicioussss. Do you put the kimchi into the grilled cheese, or eat it on the side?

My dad used to do something like this, except he added eggs and turned them into rice pancakes. Very good with butter and icing sugar on top.

vanilla icecream and angostura bitters
popcorn and soysauce
mac and cheese with soy sauce
