What’s In that WIAW???

Not gonna lie, I eat weird combos. I crave weird combos. I am NOT a creature of habit. To make the same thing everyday would kill me. I don’t think I ever really repeat recipes unless its for someone else. I wonder what all this means? Well I won’t worry about it cause my hubs is the same way, unless it has to do with marmite. Then he’s a creature of habit. Maramite and butter, Vegemite and butter, etc.! If there were a Marmite flavored butter, I could really kill two birds with one stone here. haha!

vegemite
Anyway, my post today is full of combos. Normal combos for me, but probably weird combos to you. And I’m okay with that. I won’t tell you what's in it. You’ll just have to guess. K?

Any guesses on the combos? What's your weirdest combo?
I bet I'd like it.
I once ordered a bacon latte from this place. Darn tasty!
Thanks Jen for another great WIAW and good luck on the packing!
Cheers!

'Weird' combos are totally okay! Not okay? Combos, you know, those creepy stuffed pretzel/cracker things.

For breakfast today, I ate what I'm calling an "Orange Creamsicle Pancake" with peanut butter & berry syrup.

lindsay cotter said...

oh I am all over that orange creamsicle pancake with PB! Come make me breakfast in the morning. would ya?

;)

honey? :)  that's my guess, honey. 

oh, and also!! I was SO very happy today! all the photos I took when you guys were in town, I FINALLY rescued them from a weird memory card thing. well, Jason did. anyway, I just got to see them all today - there's one of Basil and James, SO cute! :)

Katie said...

Pinot noir isn't a weird combo, no matter what you combo it with.  :)

Did you grill snow peas?!?  I have some snow peas and I have a grill....

Weird combo is my middle name.  I put ranch and ketchup on my salad today.  Which also had cukes, mushrooms, sauerkraut, and grilled green beans and eggplant.  Oh, and horseradish.  And boy was it GOOD.

Holly said...

Ok I don't see anything weird here, it all looks good! Although I want to know what that toast/pizza/type thing is. Looks delicious!

lindsay cotter said...

i once had a PB sandwich with a pinot noir. Not bad. haha. And I grilled snow peas and peppers with snapper and mashed fries. haha. AWESOME!

Lindsay

Weird is good right? It's really just unique ;-) I can't think of any really weird combos off hand. When I was a kid I loved cheetos with the outer layer of those little debbie snack rolls. Anything I used to think was weird, I sure don't any longer.

Allie said...

Everything looks great! I still have yet to try vegemite.... :)

Matt @ The Athlete's Plate said...

Looks like some great food :)

Wendy said...

Growing up I always ate pickles and then a fudgesicle in the summer or vice versa.  Never together.  My neighbors always asked if I was pregnant- even when I was 12 and eating it.  Gotta love 'em.

Ironically my parents once sent me chocolate-covered pickles from the Heinz plant or museum.  They are N-A-S-T-Y!  But when Mom and Dad send you a souvenir from home, you at least try it. :-) 

Other weird combo?  The ONLY way I could eat scrambled eggs as a kid was to drown them in clear Karo syrup (now I just don't eat 'em).  Is peanutbutter on taco shells weird? 

I dunno... I think I've simplified my tastebuds... maturity, whatever?  Just easier on the digestive track! :-)  Smarter, too! :-)

Wendy said...

Follow up, growing up in MS we used to put French dressing on the greasiest pizza we could find (Pizza Inn).  In Pittsburgh, some call it weird, some call it normal, most just call it Primanti's :-)  (as in sandwiches with fries and coleslaw in them). 

Jess said...

Oooh, can't wait to hear what these combos are! look good for sure :D

Courtney said...

Such color food and photos!
Oh, I'm all about weird combos....cottage cheese and pickles, anyone?! :)

Courtney said...

Oops... *colorful! :)

Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner said...

I like some weird combos too, but I am SUCH a creature of habit! If I like something, I'll just repeat the meal time and time again!

SquatLikeALady said...

Those hard boiled eggs look like they were perfectly done!! :) of course if you're the one who made them I guess that's no surprise ;-) We just got down here to FL where we had you send the healthy bites...they had one left -- oh my goodness. SO tasty!

Kristi @ Sweet Cheeks said...

I totally love weird food combos. That is actually one of the things i have worried a bit about with living in the dorms this Fall. I'm scared i will scare people off!

Teabag said...

my weirdest combo?  you might vomit.  cold oats, greek yogurt, vanilla, & a can of tuna.  it was like fishy, sweet, rice pudding.  and it was breakfast one day.  :) 
i was in heaven.

lindsay cotter said...

hey, I am all about trying it once! I made tuna protein bread before. It was good! sweet and tangy. I think I posted it too! Pair it with PB!

Lindsay

Bacon latte, and it was good?! I am intrigued haha
I don't try too many weird combos..  I need to be more adventurous! Although I have Marshmallow fluff with cereal sometimes... is that weird?

lindsay cotter said...

i think I've done all those combos. and I must try the syrup on eggs. Sounds sweet and savory! good childhood memories.
:)

Lindsay

i even like that combo and not gonna lie, i'd put ketchip on top! haha.
Lindsay

lindsay cotter said...

Lindsay

Curious, what does Vegemite taste like? 

Dana @ My Little Celebration said...

I'm always jealous of your eats! Always! My hubby and I have tried that MacMurray Pinot and really loved it. Hope you did, too!

audrey said...

weird combo.....today i had cut up apple mixed with almond butter and topped with salmon.
wasn't bad

lindsay cotter said...

runningperseverance said...

ahhhhhhh!!! you totally had my mouth watering with these pics! such bright colors and everything looks SO delicious! I do not even think I have many weird combos but I will literally eat hot sauce on EVERYTHING. thats probably weird to some people...haha!

lindsay cotter said...

not weird to me! hot sauce goes with EVERYTHING!

Lindsay



________________________________

lindsay cotter said...

oh boiling eggs can be tricky. I like to let them cool off to room temp before peeling. And vegemite has an interesting taste, kinda like a yeasty spread. Definitely takes some time to get used to!
haha.

Lindsay

I know bananas are in the first one ; )   Not sure what else you have going on but they all look good!  Who cares if they are weird as long as YOU like!  Welcome to the downslope of the week!

Jenny Houlahan said...

mmm bacon latte... :)

Well I definitely think that you have fresh figs in your breakfast, ham and eggs on your spinach salad and cheese, marmite and butter on bread?? I like this game even if I'm no good at it :P

Tri-Living...Together said...

All I can tell you is what I ate Wednesday and that was too many healthy bites!! :)

Runemzrun said...

Ok I WAS going to scream ..."veggie-crap sucks" then I saw Mac Murray & relaxed. ;)
They did something right in NZ. ;)

Now. I. Need. To. Order. The. Dang. Bites.
Invoice. Please!!

Heather @ Dietitian on the Run said...

Ha, I may never be able to guess what its your combos, but I love that they're always so colorful! Means they're full of lotsa nutrients ;)

My weirdest combo...hm, I like ketchup on a lot of things. And peanut butter. But not the two together...ha, ew.

Kissmybroccoli said...

How funny that our posts are almost twins! Weird (to some) and delicious food combos and ending the night with a nice cool beverage! Love it!

I could care less what's in those eats...as long as I get to eat them!! And all the colors are gorgeous girl!

Kris | iheartwellness.com said...

You crack me up!!  Sometimes I get curious to try daring things like you, but don't push myself over that safe edge ;)  are you the gal at the icecream shop looking for curry pistachio ice cream?  LOL

xxoo

lindsay cotter said...

curry pistachio? oh I'd sooo want to try that!! hehe.

Shannon said...

At work I've kind of become known for my food weirdness... especially when it comes to ketchup. But I don't understand why people think it's so weird to put ketchup on a baked potato. The weird looks from putting it on broccoli and cauliflower I can understand... but what's so weird about a potato? People put it on fried potatoes and the taste/consistency of the two isn't much different...

Michelle @ The Cooking Life said...

I love that you eat combos!! My weirdest combo has to be toasting bread and dipping pieces of it in hot cocoa. That or eating eggs, bacon and fried rice for breakfast :)

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) said...

Fig and banana oats...YUM! Looks like a tasty day my friend. You know I'm all about the weird combos. I love it! Have a great day today!

jobo said...

Um, what is in that salad, it looks REALLY good!! And now I want a glass of wine. Think it'll have to wait till tomorrow though (long run in the AM, some carbing up planned tonight though for 11 miles tomorrow!!) :)

Kalli said...

i love your food!  i think we both like to mix weird things together :)  i think my weirdest was the soy beans, egg thingy i made the other day!  have a great day girl :)

Sam said...

mmm, yummy! i'm a creature of habit for every breakfast and lunch, but hardly ever repeat supper recipes. life is more fun that way :)

Jess said...

Is that fig I spy in your breakfast concoction?? If so, YUMMMMMMMMM!!! I love weird combos! 

Stephanie@MyThornsHaveRoses said...

I've always noticed that you were quite the combo queen!!!  Your food looks delicious. Even if I have no idea what half of it is. :)

Melissa Keller said...

I heard Lift went out of business and turned into something else.  Is that true?  (I don't get down there enough)

lindsay cotter said...

we were there just the other day! I hope this isn't true. Now I must go find out.

eek!

Guessing grapefruit & banans in your oatmeal?? & I would love my favorite combination right now: wine & cheese ;)

MiDLiFe CrUiSeR said...

My grandma would make home made fig newtons. She called them fig pies. You would love them! I'm not into weird food combos. Not that long ago, I discovered adding fruit to my salad...and I thought I was a rebel :)

lindsay cotter said...

oh me too! wine cheese please!

Lindsay

Red Velvet Life said...

YUM, Lindsay! Everything looks so yummy! I don't consider any of your combos weird at all -- I would happily everything here! :) Lately I've been eating avocado and daiya cheese on my sweet potato with salt and pepper. And cayenne pepper is a must for my guac lately, too. Not super weird, just delish! :) 

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons said...

haha thank youuuuuuu almond joy! I'm taking a packing break today. I broke WAY too many things yesterday.

1. a dozen eggs
2. a bowl
3. a trash bag filled with trash
4. possibly my toe. its black. whoops?

anywho! LOVE YOU!

Joyce Cherrier said...

My first time visiting your blog and I love it already! Love weird combos! My kids are constantly asking me what the heck I'm eating. I don't know exactly what's in your awesome pics but I do know it looks yummy! :)

Sara Stewart said...

I'm going to take a stab at this! First set of pictures: cottage cheese, fig, cinnamon and possibly some sort of grain underneath. Second set: egg, tomato-rice mixture and...ham? Third set: GF French bread with cheese (what's underneath is a mystery!) Fourth set: roasted veggies, tomatoes, carrots, snow peas...?? Am I close? Even if I'm completely off, this was too much fun! :-)

Rach said...

A bacon latte?! Oh gracious, Christopher would be in heaven, haha! 

As for weird combos... when I was a kid I used to like to mix my mashed potatoes & brown gravy and macaroni & cheese together and top it with tons of ketchup. I haven't had it since I was like 10, but I'm not gonna lie - I'd probably still like it today. ;) 

Suzanne @ Workoutnirvana said...

Yum. Whatever that thang is in the hoagie.... I'll have FIVE.

lindsay cotter said...

i keep telling ya, I'll feed you if you train me. K? Come on down!

Lindsay

maybe liking something different all the time is (part of) what makes you a great blogger? You're never going to be dull, are you? :)

My weirdest: bacon stirred into a flourless chocolate cake just before baking. Freaking awesome. :)

Mind you, lots of what I what I eat is considered weird here, so... maybe my weirdness is just relative.

Krazy_Kris said...

Tell me it's not Bananas, Paprika and Grapefruit!

Dorry said...

I always think your combos look delicious! I like scrambled eggs, refried beans, and avocado with lime juice and nutritional yeast. :)

Paige said...

Well...I know what combo of grapes are in the wine bottle! :)

Nikki said...

I enjoy strange things too...on Thanksgiving, I mix corn, apple sauce, mashed potatoes, and cinnamon together.  Everyone thinks I am gross, but I think it is delicious! :)

lindsay cotter said...

Nikki, that sounds interesting but of course I'd try it. Kinda a sweet and savory combo! I like it!

BRIBE? As if. 

If I lived nearby you'd be looking to get a restraining order because I'd be stalking you in your kitchen to learn all about healthy bites, we'd be GF baking up a storm, and I'd be haunting your training. Thank your lucky stars there's always at least ONE border control between us! ;) Love ya!

I don't usually do weird combos. I like most of the classics - pb and jelly, chocolate and pb, pb and pb. I don't have much clue on your combos, but is that paprika on your oats? If so - you really are crazy. LOL

lindsay cotter said...

haha, paprika would be interesting. I think I'd put cayenne on there before paprika. But it actually a cinnomon/ginger spice. good stuff!

Lindsay

Kath (My Funny Little Life) said...

Oh, I'm so bad with guessing! I guess in that bottle is Pinot Noir, no? ;) It also seems that you like to put fruit into your savory dishes sometimes, but I'm not sure.

Some of my combos are a little unusual, but I wouldn't consider them weird. I still love my roasted chicken with fruit and almond butter, and I put cinnamon into my savory dishes. It's the best! :D

lindsay cotter said...

your savory dishes are my favorite! and no grain in the bowl. It was all chia seed and cream and fig. Delicious!

Lindsay
