“The only thing I like better than talking about food is eating it” ~ John Walters
Regardless of many miles between us (mostly ocean) and a seven hour time difference, occasionally, I eat at the same time as my friend.
The other day, at my teatime (6.00pm), he was eating his late breakfast/early lunch which on this occasion just happened to be a peanut butter and cherry jelly sandwich.
Now firstly, I had to work out what he meant by jelly, which turned out to be what those of us in the UK would call jam. Secondly, peanut butter with jam isn’t something most of us over here would eat.
Generally, I’m not particularly fussy about my food, but this particular combination sounded revolting. Anyway, I was talked into actually making and eating a peanut butter and cherry jelly sandwich.
My fear at experimenting with this culinary combination is pretty obvious when you look at the meagre portion of jam spooned onto the bread.
In the end, no one was more surprised than me when I declared it to be not a bad taste after all and promptly made myself an even bigger sandwich!
My second offering for the photo challenge is another experiment with food. This time, however, the original experiment took place many years ago at Grandma’s house.
My step granddad picked up the plate of leftover Yorkshire puddings from Sunday lunch, he handed us children a dessert plate and told us to take a pudding. He brought out the vinegar and the sugar bowl and proceeded to dribble vinegar over the puddings, next he sprinkled sugar over each one and told us this was dessert.
To this day, one of my greatest gastronomic pleasures is eating a leftover Yorkshire pudding with vinegar and sugar!
Unfortunately, I have had very little success in talking others into being experimental. So, how about you? Why not try it, after all I did try the peanut butter and cherry jelly combination.
