My father liked cold hot dogs dipped in mustard, cold baked beans with raw onions on crackers and raw hamburger sandwiches with a big slice of raw onion (if the ground beef was bought from a butcher - not prepackaged meat). He also liked sausage gravy over pancakes instead of biscuits. My mother would add vinegar to the chili on her plate as well as on her green beans. My grandfather would slice donuts in half like bagels and butter them.

Did you ever wonder what other unusual groupings are out there besides those you may have? I decided to take a look to see for myself.
- French Fries dunked in vanilla milkshakes or into honey. (Yeah, really.)
- Tuna fish and ketchup. (Urp! I thought my daughter's tuna and mustard was bad.)
- French Fries dipped in Hawaiian Punch. (French Fries sure do get around.)
- Peanut Butter and bologna sandwiches. (I would never punish PB like that!!)
- Banana and mayo sandwich. (Yeah - there goes Easter dinner.)
- Scrambled eggs and grape jelly. (Oops - I was wrong.)
So, as you can see, unusual food combinations aren't all that uncommon. Maybe not overly appealing, but definitely not uncommon. Therefore, the next time I crave some chili cheese fries or a baked potato loaded with chili, cheese, butter AND sour cream, or ask for my dried beef gravy over my potatoes instead of over my toast, I know I'm not alone in the world!
