    Lol
    I had to ask you why you mentioned those two things in particular and asked if he liked them despite his fish hating.

    Because I despise fish but I love those stupid fish sandwiches there lol
    And yes i'll eat fish sticks if my kids want them. Oh funny.

    When I was young, I didn't think I'd be able to ever eat mushrooms. In my late teens I started to really enjoy them and have enjoyed them ever since. I'm sure I could come up with more stuff if I take some more time to think about it.

    Oh, I asked him Mokey because it seems to be common that many people who don’t generally like fish still like either of those two items.

    I think my own love of fish sticks grew out of years in Catholic school.

    I never knew that. It's such a strange thing to be of commonality!

    The "combination" of foods thing came to my attention only after getting married. Mrs Duke grew up on a farm where no food was wasted, no matter what or how much of something was left that food was used (or "repurposed" in current speak I suppose.) I was amazed early in our marriage when the wife would open the frig/pantry/cupboard and start pulling stuff out, seemingly at random, to make dinner. Once I asked what she was making, and was a bit skeptical when she said she wasn't sure yet. Over the years I've watched her mix some of the damndest combinations of things, literally on the fly, to prepare very tasty meals. I'd say she has at least a 95% success rate in this process.

    I’d like to coin a new word for Mrs. Duke, “chifty”.

    I know - what a hoot. There is a high correlation. In the mean time Mokey, enjoy your fish sticks and jarred tarter sauce.
