My mom used to make this "fruit salad" that consisted of cottage cheese, cool whip, strawberry jello powder, pineapple, and mandarin oranges. It looks like pink vomit. But I think it tastes quite good.

Yeah, my mom made something like that, too, and I still request it all the time (haven't been brave enough to try it out myself)...she called it "Fairmont Salad" but made it with lime green jello, cottage cheese, crushed pineapple, pecans and I think - ew - mayonaise?  She also made this casserole that's kinda sorta "weird" sounding before you put it together, but man oh man it is freakin' good.  She takes a sleeve of Ritzes, crushed pineapple, cheddar cheese and mixes it all together, dots it with butter and bakes 'til gold and bubbly. mmmm

Hands down, my favorite weird food is peanut butter & bacon sandwiches. It is one of my family's depression recipes (as in "the great" but it works when you're mopey, too).  It's best on an English muffin, toasted until the peanut butter gets melted A local pizza place has a pizza with peanut butter & bacon & mild provolone... the cheese is a nice touch, actually.

When I was a kid, my favorite sandwich was cream cheese and green olives (sliced so they don't pop out on ya) on leftover, garlic bread toasted dark. Ooh, I wonder if I could convince the boy to try this one... I miss it, haven't had it in years.

My mom used to serve orange meal on Tuesdays... Boxed mac'n cheese, carrot sticks and "orange drink"... I hated that it was monochromatic, and that it was ALWAYS  on Tuesdays, and that powdered drink thing was extra gross.

Yeah... she grew up poor and I think she wanted us to appreciate what we had or something?

my family makes this terrible dish for every holiday called Red Dressing. One Thanksgiving, my great grandmother didn't have much money, so she decided to make do with what she had. She combined crushed saltine crackers with ketchup, brown sugar, black olives and raisins and claimed it was stuffing. We have eaten it at every holiday since. Once you hit a certain age it grows on you...I always take a small spoonful. The funniest part is watching a guest's face as we explain what is in it and urge them to take some!

Haha!!  My aunt had "yellow meals".  Fish sticks or chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, and corn.   And it was usually a weekly meal because she never knew how to cook anything else.  Ah, memories...

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.

The cheese and fruit combos (jelly with cheese, pie with cheese, cheese with cheese and more cheese and cheesy cheese cheese...) is very popular in Michigan where I grew up. I was comfortably middle class and ate sharp cheddar with cherry preserves-- the poor ate Velveeta with grape jelly. The idea is to cut the sweetness with the saltiness.
All I can say is that if you have PMS, it rocks.
Has anyone tried kool-aid pickles?

I grew up in Michigan, and I never heard of such a thing until I spent some time in the south.  Still not getting the apple pie with cheese thing.
