But seriously, I’ve realized that, since I discovered the blogging community and basically opened Pandora’s box with my foodie creativity, I will probably NEVER eat a “normal” meal again. This week’s addition to my #strangebutgood repertoire is a prime example…I was halfway through eating my FIRST one before I even realized it was a bit…um, odd? I was just excited to use my boozy jam again!

Then it was all like, quick we need photographic evidence! THEN I held on to it all for over a week because I couldn’t figure out what to call it…thanks for saving the #strangebutgood day, Melissa! 😀

Sweet baby Cheezus! 😆

I actually find it kinda funny that I have such a love for tuna melts…especially since I never grew up with them…I guess this is just my way of making up for lost time and the quirky combos are just me embracing my inner weird kid a bonus! Hey, at least I didn’t put ketchup on top!

Drunken Tuna Melt with Roasted Veggies and Kale Chips

Of course, if you want to get SUPER strange, you could always forget the bread altogether and stuff your tuna melt in a friggin’ SQUASH…

Drunken Tuna Melt in a Butternut Squash... #strangebutGENIUS! ;)

But if your on a kick like me, the kale chips are NOT optional! 😉

Oh lord, if only my veggie-hating, chicken nugget and French fry loving five year old self could see me now!

Were you a picky eater growing up?

What was your favorite “odd” food pairing when you were little?
I honestly wasn’t really into strange combos as a kid, but I loved me some fried SPAM with ketchup and hot dogs straight out of the fridge in the summer! 😀
