Strange But Good~Literary/Film Version

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.

Sprint 2 the Table

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!!!

  1. If you are a peanut butter fan – a friend just told me about an interesting combo of greek yogurt, vanilla, peanut butter and chocolate chips…I will pass along the specifics when I get them.

  2. Oh I thing those rice cakes would be good!! I love peanut butter, but putting it on a rice cake would fill me up without me eating the entire jar 😉

    • Liz, I have controlled the “jar” lately. I’m very proud of it because I am AWFUL with that. It really tasted good, counted for fewer Points than bread. I actually measured the PB and it was quite sufficient! Maybe I’ll do it more frequently if I feel I can control it. Have a great weekend!!

  3. I love rice cakes! I had one with PB the other day… wish I’d thought to add jam.

    Apparently you’re not missing much with 50 Shades… my mom said she got bored half way through. 😉

  4. I go through PB/J phases, although it’s been awhile. I don’t think it’s that weird to put it on rice cakes 😉

  5. i like your 50 shades joke, fran – very funny!!!
    i have had pb and jelly on rice cakes – very yummy! rice cakes are the best: pretty much anything on top tastes great!
    hope you get to enjoy a movie this weekend??! or at least some reading!

    • I thought you’d like that joke, Cathy! Rice cakes are so versatile that’s one of the things I like about them. Some reading would be good. I want to know what happens in the book I’m reading. Have a great weekend, Cathy!

  6. I think your suggestiveness is the exact reason you should read 50 Shades. Don’t expect good writing, but you might have a little fun in the ahem…bed room. Ralph might agree with me here.
