4) Tell us about a weird food combo that you love.
Weird is pretty subjective. I went back into my memory bank for this one. I was fifteen and hanging out in the kitchen of a punk house downtown. I don’t know how the subject came up but Scott and Heather said they love roast garlic peanut butter sandwiches. I remember Scott saying ‘It sounds weird but it tastes really good!’ Laurel chimed in that pickles and peanut butter make a good sandwich as well.
It was cooler and raining outside; I didn’t mind turning the oven on to roast a buttercup squash, a bulb of garlic and a few slices of onion. I toasted slices from the chia loaf I’d picked up to make the Po Po sandwich, smooth peanut butter and crushed sea salt. This sandwich reminds me of being a 90’s vegan. Given that the flavors are like peanut sauce it’s not really weird but in the 1990’s south Asian fusion was just hitting the west. I guess in our small mountain valley town this seemed pretty weird at the time but Scott is right, it’s weirdly good.
