Hey Todd,

Happy New Year!

When I was a young teenager (25+ years ago) my parents took me to Cuba.  We're Canadians, and  we just made sure we had Canadian flags and pins on everything we were wearing/carrying so they didn't mistake us for Americans.  Beautiful beaches, really friendly people, and our lousy dollar at a great exchange rate.  Can't beat that!

Anyhow, the trip was great, and we stayed at a great resort that used to summer homes for Americans.  We had our own villa, and then all the guests ate lunch and supper together.  Most of the food was identifiable, but a couple of times it was iffy. The most memorable was the meatloaf that looked and tasted like hamburger and pork mixed together.

A day or  two later, however, we went on a tour of a crocodile (or maybe alligator, can't tell the difference) farm.  Why farm crocodiles you ask???  Well, remember the mystery meat from the other night?  That's right....

The other weird eat from the trip was on the cool Fiesta Night.  Lots of great music, food, dancing.  My dad chowed down on the great chicken legs, but for some reason my mom told me not to eat them. Turned out she'd asked, and found out they were actually frog legs.  She didn't tell Dad about it, but he probably wouldn't have cared anyway cause he's got an iron stomach.

Mom also swears that we ate chocolate covered insects on that trip too, but I don't remember it.  Whatever.  I'll eat pretty much anything as long as it's covered in chocolate.

Love the site btw!

Like the cottage cheese/ketchup story, I didn't know my dish was weird
either because my mom always made it that way.

Tunafish sandwiches:  canned tunafish, miracle whip, diced celery and
raisins.

*Raisins?!*

Yep.  Delicious!  Gets weird looks, tho!

Hey Todd

Pig jaws, maybe no so weird a thing after all (has a slightly chewy, dry texture, and tastes strongly of pork) when you think about it. But it sounds revolting to me anyway. I was at boarding school at the time and I overheard the kitchen staff talk about it. "They got to be talking about food for their dogs. I thought to myself. Needless to say I was wrong. I also got served kangaroo at the school. Even though I couldn't stop thinking about Skippy while I ate it, it was delicious.

The weirdest food combo I like is peanut butter with a pinch of garlic and chilli.

It's weird but don't knock it til you try it.
 
Ritz Crackers
1"x1" cubes of cheddar cheese - any flavor but sharp is best
Ketchup
 
Take a ritz cracker top with a chunk of cheese dollop with a big drop of ketchup.  MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMMMMMMM Good.  My grandpa taught me and my sister this and everyone we tell thinks its sooo gross then they try it and now tons of our friends eat it too.  
 
Love your site!
