Week 1 of Seven Weeks of Weird

Be a part of the weird and wonderful!!

A little while back I met a crazy woman, most of you already know her, but for those of you who don’t, she goes by the name of Mental Mama, and is the brains behind Mental in the Midwest, a rather amusing blog that would be a great addition to your reader.

Anyways, she was starting this project for July called 7 weeks of weird and I, thinking that it would be a great idea, said I’d be as a game as a badger for that particular challenge. I commented, she commented, I commented some more and so did she. Copious amount of following ensued and we’ve been blog buddies ever since.

The truth is, I then forgot all about the challenge until she posted a reminder on her blog. I then forgot about it all over again, because lets face it, the inside of my head is a minefield at present and could go off at any time. Thankfully, Not a Punk Rocker has a better memory and reminded me with her post today.

Weirdest food/food combination you like that everyone else thinks is nasty

Everyone loves beans right, and by that I mean those of the baked bean variety. Little orange coloured nuggets, draped in a tomatoey sauce,  that provide a source of both fibre and fart power. What’s not to love.


Beans are great when teamed with bread, or better still toast. However when I started to add cheese into the mix way back when, the folks in work were horrified. They thought it was a weird combination. I personally thought it was bloody great and ate it at every opportunity.

Fast forward 5 years and cheesy beans is now a favourite of many people. In fact you can even get them in a tin.

Cheesy Beans
Heinz are the dogs bollocks of beans!

The second weird combination that had everyone in a dither was boiled rice and cauliflower cheese. You see, when you say it together like that, it really doesn’t make any sense at all, but for some strange reason it tickled my tastebuds, the bland taste of the rice being lifted by the slight tang of the cheese. I actually haven’t had that in a while and I’m not even sure I would like it anymore myself, so there is only one way to find out.

Looks like tomorrow nights tea is sorted. Give it a go, you know you want to!

  1. Cauliflower cheese? Like, cheese and cauliflower, or something else?

    The grocery store beside our house has a section (half an aisle, if that) for “European Food”. I wonder if they have those beans there and if I can convince Matt to try them? :-)


    • Don’t you guys get Heniz over there at all? The do wee tins of Heinz baked beans and Pork Sausages, oh boy do I love those.
      Yeah Cauliflower cheese is cauliflower, a white sauce with cheese in, then grated cheese on top and cooked int he oven, it’s delish! especially with rice lol


      • Well, yeah, but there’s “special” cans of Heinz stuff at World Market and this section of the store. I may have to make a special trip now and take a picture LOL

        cauliflower cheese with rice sounds sooo good right now :-)


  2. Hmmm… I haven’t seen/tried the beans with cheese before! Although I haven’t really looked either… Haha “dogs bollocks” is such a uk/Irish expression! Makes me giggle every time!
