Thank you all SO much for your kind words on yesterday’s post. It definitely made me smile! I just need to stay focused and remind myself WHY I’m taking this test when I begin to doubt myself. It will be worth it at the end.
So randomly this weekend I happened to mention to Craig that I was craving Skittles. I have NO idea why..and I really never eat candy. (Sorry Janae, I hope we can still be friends ) I just don’t love it like I love frozen yogurt, so I just stick to frozen yogurt. And like I’ve said before, I inherited the ‘ice cream gene’ from my Dad, so I can’t help myself! So when I ran out to the grocery store, these just happened to land in my cart.
Oops! I love how it says it’s the ‘share size,’ when it fact I think it means to say the ‘Holly size.’ Sorry Craig, I’m not about to share my Skittles! (good thing he doesn’t like them too much, otherwise I might feel a tiny bit greedy )
Once I opened the package I found myself picking out certain flavors. I’m one of the odd people that LOVES grape. It’s my favorite flavor. I would always love when everyone would pick out all of their grape flavors & then give them to me. The best part was that I didn’t even have to trade anything for them…because no one wanted them! Ha!
I would always pick out all of the grape ones first, and leave the orange ones for last. I actually HATED the orange ones…and tried to throw them out before my parents noticed…but they caught on & made me eat the orange ones too. I lived such a hard life a kid, huh?!
Anyways, as I was eating my Skittles I also remembered how I would only eat certain combinations of Skittles together. Like the lime & lemon, or the lemon & orange. It was either specific combinations or I just ate each flavor by itself. I remember when I was in elementary school & I was eating Skittles with one of my friends. I noticed she was eating a certain combination of flavors that had never considered before. Strawberry & Lime. I thought it was SO odd, but when I tried it I realized why she liked it so much, it was good! So now every time I eat Skittles I always eat the strawberry & lime flavors together.
This made me think of other strange combinations that I like to eat. Of course we all know of the traditional combinations….
(& how does that look right about now?! Ice cream for breakfast…? Sure why not?! )
Then I started to thinking about the odd combinations that I eat that aren’t ‘typical.’
*Pretzels & Yogurt – love the salty sweet/ combination
*A sandwich with chips IN the sandwich, I can’t eat a sandwich without chips- I love the crunch in it. Craig just thinks I’m a weirdo & gives me strange looks.
*Cinnamon & popcorn
*Saltines & Jelly (I have a HUGE love for Saltines..it’s bad. I could eat a whole sleeve of Saltines & not think twice about it…so I try not to buy them too much.)
*Ice cream & cereal (YUM)
I guess they aren’t all SO odd. I am definitely all about trying new things, and sometimes have the strangest ideas for combinations of flavors. Sometimes it works…sometimes it doesn’t, but it’s worth the try.
Do you have any strange combinations that you like?
Do you find any ‘traditional’ combinations gross?
I always love trying new things, so I might just have to try some of your odd combinations!
Hope you all have a fabulous Friday Eve!
