It’s a little funny to me that almost as soon as I decided to start participating in Strange But Good hostessed by Laura at Sprint 2 The Table I have cooked very little. Food funk I suppose but never let that keep me from eating strange or having strange motivations for my food choices.
I remember a few years back, Ralph and I were watching The Avengers. No, not the recent one with all of the hunky superheroes. This was The Avengers starring Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman. The one about British spies and based on the 1960′s British TV series. Hey, it also had Sean Connery and Eddie Izzard in it. We couldn’t resist.
To move my story along here… Did I say they were British? It seemed that in every new scene, they were sitting down to tea. Tea here, Tea there. About 20 minutes into the movie I told Ralph (my Ralph, not the other one) that he had to pause the movie. He said, “oh, do you need to use the bathroom?” I said “No! I need to make Tea!!”
I’m very suggestible that way. So this past week I read The Fault In Our Stars. In several scenes in the book, they were eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Not as often as Tea in The Avengers, but often enough that I was thinking I wanted some. Then I saw PB&J on several blogs that I read and my fate was sealed. I not only wanted PB&J, I NEEDED PB&J.
So I started to assemble that which I craved. The shocking realization hit me that we had no bread! Never let me be deterred when I want to eat something. I proudly present to you Strange But Good-ers…
Peanut Butter and Jelly on Rice Cakes!! Strange yes, but so tasty. Ok, if I just put peanut butter and jelly on my finger and licked it off it would have been acceptable at this point. But hey, I even measured out the PB and the J. I was proud of myself for that!
I guess in a way this is not only Strange But Good, it’s also True Confessions. I am one of the most suggestible people you’ll ever meet.
Now do you all understand my reason for not reading 50 Shades Of Grey?!
Strange But Good…check out the other linkers on this fun link-up. See how strange we can all be and leave some comments.
Happy Friday!! The sun is shining…I’m so excited!!!
