    Default "Bum" foods- Let's share our nastiest concoctions.

    What is the worst thing you have eaten that you made out of sheer desperation/laziness/late night "what evers"?

    As I type this I am shoveling peanut butter and jam on a spoon into my face. It is abhorrent, but in the most delicious way possible. And, even though I don't make them, nasty Orion Chocopies are pretty bad, too.
    And this is the story of your red right ankle.

    Sliced cheese on crackers and melted in the microwave.

    When we were kids, we used to make "fudge" by mixing just enough Quick to make a paste, then put it in the fridge until it got solid.

    The "fudge" is absolutely genius.

    Make?? When I'm feeling lazy, it's usually a drive through! Horrible, I know, but my super lazy place of choice is usually Taco Bell.

    I have microwaved frozen french fries when I'm too impatient to wait the 15 minute it would take them to bake in the oven. Sad, I know, and they're not very good that way. Ketchup helps.

    I never did it, but watched an ex boyfriend do it. I don't think I ever got over it.

    He took a corn tostada shell, but a slice of bologna and a kraft single on it, microwaved it and chowed down. If it was a flour tortilla, I might have been able to not be so grossed out.

    Oh, edited to add that once when I was 10 or so I ate a large spoonful of plain old mayo as an after school snack. Figured it worked for peanut butter, so why not. I miss having the metabolism of a hummingbird.

    Not really a "lazy" food per se, but one of the tastiest things ever is a slice of bologna on top of cream cheese on a bagel. Mr. Heinz thought I was completely nuts until I made him try one.

    I also love fish sticks - no, not a filet or a patty, those little processed sticks. And I like them EVER BETTER the next day, cold, straight out of the fridge. It's gross, it's weird, I know, but I don't care. I make extra fish sticks just so I can have some for breakfast.

    Know what I've noticed about that story? (The tostada one). When I've told it to men, they kind of do the "I guess to you it's nasty" shrug and I can see the thought bubble that says I've just given them an idea.

    Sour cream topped with salsa and that topped with shredded cheese and scooped with corn chips. I can eat it by the bowl.

    Oh, and a grilled cheese with a fried egg and bacon on it.

    Homemade butter....I can just eat it plain off the spoon

    Cream cheese. Just plain.

    I'm freaking pregnant and none of this sounds appealing!

    DH makes a peanut butter burrito if I am not around and he is hungry. Large flour tortilla, smeared with butter then crunchy peanut butter, roll it up and nuke I for 45 seconds.

    My dad's concoctions:

    Peanut butter and butter... peanut butter on one half, butter on the other. Fold it over. Usually both butters were hard and not spread. Meh, it got mixed up well enough in one bite AND you could make the whole thing during a commercial so as to not miss any Dallas.

    This guy also would swim laps in the morning followed by Product 19 cereal (cornflakes sprayed with vitamins), sugar and evaporated milk. Again, all this came out even somehow in his mind.

    My father would create the nastiest concoctions.
    One of his favorites was peanut butter and...mayonnaise.
    Or peanut butter with...
    Liverwurst.
    Thought he was crazy, but I did try it, and it wasn't really bad.

    Fortunately it prepared me well for babysitting. This one kid was a piece of work. His parents doctors. He'd take everything in the kitchen and blend it, and it never phased me...thus earning his respect. We got along, the house wasn't set on fire, and I was paid really, really well.
