That is lovingly called a congealed salad in the south. Many a young child has been terrified to find olives, celery, and chicken floating in their jello.I also forgot to mention the WEIRD dish my grandmother used to make that was oddly delicious! lol It sounds gross, I know! I was grossed out by it when I was a kid too...until I tried it and liked it! The recipe goes like this. ...
2 packs of orange Jello
2 cups boiling water
11 ice cubes
1/3 cup of mayo
3 tbsp. yellow mustard
One 14oz can of crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup cottage cheese
1. In a bowl, throughly combine pineapple, cottage cheese, mayo and mustard.
2. In a medium, flat-bottomed serving dish, empty Jello packets and add boiling water, stir until completely dissolved.
3. Add ice cubes to hot Jello mixture, stir until melted and allow Jello to thicken.
4. Loosely stir in pineapple, cottage cheese, mayo and mustard mixture into Jello, but don't combine completely. Leave some dobs of Jello here and there.
5. Put into fridge and continue to cool until Jello is fully set, then serve.
Step #6: Enjoy that weird mess! lol
If you do make this (yeah right! lol), just be sure the Jello is thickened but not completely set before you stir in the rest of the ingredients, because if it's still too runny, the Jello will mostly stay at the bottom.
Okay, now THAT'S weird! lol I think I could handle celery, but chicken and olives??? I don't know, maybe I shouldn't knock it until I try it! lolThat is lovingly called a congealed salad in the south. Many a young child has been terrified to find olives, celery, and chicken floating in their jello.
The only way i can eat cooked spinach is with boiled eggsWhile at work today I was thinking of all the creative ways my grandmother would get me to eat. I believe these qualify as weird food combos.
Sweet relish in my cabbage.

It's been YEARS since I've had Marmite. Probably almost 30 years. I vividly remember finding a jar of it in the cupboard thinking, 'Huh, I wonder what this stuff is?' Well, I took a spoonful of it and had a Mar-mighty surprise, let me tell you. lol I haven't had it since. But I think where most people outside of the typical Marmite/Vegemite regions don't realize is that it's meant to be used VERY sparingly. A little goes a long way. The (generally) small size of the jar should be an indication. I think people here tend to layer it on to thick, which becomes overpowering. As I understand, many people spread Marmite/Vegemite very thinly on toast and it is supposed to be good. I'd give it another go!Crunchy peanut butter and marmite in a toasted sandwich.
If you are not familiar with marmite it really doesnt taste like anything else. Australia has vegemite which is similar in a way but not as good in my opinion. It is yeast extract.
