October is the fourth-annual Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delicious features, chef profiles, unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2010."
I'm blatantly stealing this blog idea from nytimes.com.
Seems a recent episode of the Nickelodeon series "iCarly" mentioned and featured pasta stuffed into taco shells. Spaghetti tacos.
Spaghetti tacos really aren't as crazy an idea as many may think. Easy to make, portable and crunchy. For kids and adults -- why not?
The nytimes.com story, though, made me think a sandwich that I ate way too often in my Marquette days. The Ropewich. It's a pickle, peanut butter, onion and ketchup sandwich. Named after a college roommate (Dave Pope, nickname "Rope") the crazy combo sandwich was a big hit and is really, really good. Try one.
Anyway, what crazy food combinations have crossed your path? Use the talkback feature to respond.
