ABC Weekends: "E" is for Eat Something New

First there was snow...
Then there was sickness...
Last weekend we finally had a weekend without snow or sickness and got the chance to continue on with our ABC Weekends.

E was for EAT something new!

1. Go through the store looking for for foods that you have never tried.
2. Pick three things each--a drink, a dessert, and a miscellaneous food item.
3.All three items must be taken home and consumed no matter how weird or crazy they may seem.

I thought this would be a breeze...
Tim and I have tried some pretty "out there" things from all over the world like...

Coconut milk in Central America

Plantains in Belize

Seafood served over green rice in Spain

Gallo Pinto and a mystery meat (back when I ate meat) on a mission trip to Nicaragua...
I could go on and on...

The point is...I thought it would be an easy challenge and that the hardest part would actually be finding something we haven't tried.  Let's just say that eating some of the things we picked out ended up being more of a challenge than I originally expected though.

Welcome to Tim and Jenn's Eat Something New Restaurant!
May I start you off with something to drink.
We have goji juice that is drinkable after the third or fourth sip and some cream soda that was never drinkable and should have been left at the store.  (Yuck.)

As an appetizer we are serving pickle flavored Pringles.  Yes, that's right.  They taste like pickles! 
For dinner we have a lovely tossed salad with bright green salad dressing.  The dressing is called Green Goddess.  (Only the lettuce should be allowed to be this green though.)

Finally for dessert we are serving Mango Ice Cream (too weird) and Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Klondikes.  (Thank goodness for something normal!)

I can't say that I would buy anything other than the Klondikes again, but this was a fun experience.  Don't worry...we didn't feed Lydia Grace any of the weird stuff.

Proof that trying new things is as easy as ABC! 


  1. Goji juice and cream soda were nasty. Pickle chips actually weren't bad. I really enjoyed the Reese Klondike bars!!!! Thanks for making my Valentine's better.

  2. You are welcome! It was fun to have you join in with us.


Each and every one of your comments means so much to me. I love to hear from friends both old and new. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the world and thanks for taking the time to let me know you were here.
