Chips with apple sauce.  The only condiment for chips, IMO, but you can't usually get apple sauce at the chippie so I make do with ketchup or mayo.

Chips and strong cheese

PB&J on toast, or PB&bananananananaaaaaa (just about lived on this as post-training food when I raced XC)

Strangest one I have ever heard of though was grated cheese in a mug of hot tea..... :sick: :sick: :sick:

Chilli and Chocolate's, Strawberries and Balsamic is a treat, Beer and chocolate also works.

Couple of weeks back I was working on a Thai seasoning whilst my colleague was working on Ice-cream...combo-time!  Try something like Schwartz 7 Thai spices for stir-frying with plain ice-cream...It's a taste sensation!

If only...
Couple of days later I met a flavourist at an ingredients 'do' and the company she worked for had developed a Thai flavour specifically for Ice-cream that they were keen to promote (I'm not buying), so it's not even an original idea.  :'(

Ho hum, back to the corporate chain-gang until I accidentally discover  the idea to propel me to fame and fortune...
Sorry about the fiver  ;D

In the pub last night, we were eating various odds and sods off of the menu, meatballs, nachos with cheese, nibbles type stuff, and one of the things that someone ordered was Chicken with Chocolate and Chili Sauce... :o

It was ... odd ... I can't say it seemed like a particularly good idea, and wasn't necessarily awful either, just didn't seem to do anything for me.

Chicken in mole sauce is a well know Mexican dish.  I had it in California and seemed to remember it being delicious.  But I was drunk and ravenous.  ;)

I once put coriander in an apple cake instead of cinnamon.  It worked, but I haven't done it again.  Cinnamon works better!

I think I may be the only Lancastrian living who doesn't like cheese with Christmas cake.  I much prefer brandy butter.  Yum.

Go to McDo's...
Large order of chips & a vanilla milk shake..
Dips the chips in the shake and eat  :)

If it's McD's, the fries probably contain a higher percentage of sugar than the shake...

Americans think that Ice-Cream on Root Beer (Root Beer Float) doesn't actually taste bad.

I took my American colleagues slightly by surprise when I immediately gobbed my first mouthful out onto the pavement (where it belongs).

Fruit salad with lime or lemon juice and chili sauce or ground dried chili. Yum! This is very commonplace in Mexico, so I can't claim to have invented it. Most people in this country seem to go "urgh!" at the suggestion but it's really very tasty.

Also, on a similar theme, cold lager with chili sauce, worcestershire sauce* and lime juice in a salt-rimmed glass. This is known as a "michelada". Delicious and refreshing on a hot day.

* known as salsa Ingles ("English sauce") in Mexico
