Odd Food

I am going to share with you my absolute favorite sandwich of all time. You may say ewww {like my husband is saying right now!}.... or you may say .... I think I'll try it!

My grandmother used to make these sandwiches and pack them up for a picnic. I can remember eating them at amusement parks, the beach and by the pool. They are great if your a vegetarian or just love olives. And they also make wonderful finger sandwiches if you chop off the crusts and corner them - serve them at an old fashioned tea party!

What am I talking about?

cream cheese & olives

Ohhh it is sooo good! Just take a dollop of cream cheese and warm it for about 15 seconds in the microwave. Chop up a few green olives stuffed with pimentos and mix it up. Spread it on bread or even better - toast. You could also try spreading it on a bagel for breakfast or on crackers for a snack

Just try it!

What is your favorite "odd food"?

Well, I do love olives, but cream cheese is kind of on the other end of the spectrum...but this still might be good...I might just try it!

well, it's not an odd food, but the cream cheese made me think of it. Strawberry sandwiches. Yum. For some reason we use pumpernickel bread, but i'm sure other bread would taste good too. then put on your cream cheese and strawberries. We've also had them adding raspberries or blackberries with the strawberries. yum. I should buy some strawberries and make those tomorrow.
