Cold roast potatoes

For lunch I've just eaten five cold roast potatoes left over from last night's dinner. God, I love them! They're one of those foods that tastes just as good cold as it does hot. Like rice pudding, custard or chicken. Not pizza or quiche, though. I know a lot of people like those cold but not me.

It got me thinking about bizarre food-likings. I love Walkers cheese and onion crisps dipped in Heinz salad cream. I also love grated cheese on top of chips. A Twix or Drifter dipped in hot chocolate is pretty fab too.

So what about you - what unconventional food combinations do you like?

I love to eat take-away the next day, even pizza Laura! You cant beat it!! And as for dipping chocolate in drinks I love dipping those spiras (you remember them) as you can actually suck the hot chocolate through it! YUM!

Glad I'm not the only one, Janine! Yeah - I can imagine those Spiras working like a big straw. Do they still sell them? I used to luurrvve Cadbury's Secrets too. Do you remember them?

oooh I really like marmite atm. Yes Laura I remember secrets from when I was little as my grandad was an area manager for a sweet shop and told me I was the first person ever to try one. I actually believed him at the time!

I think Spiras do exist although they are quite rare! I'm gonna be on a mission to find one now!!!

I actually love banana on toast - infact I had banana cravings when I was pregnant with my eldest son Ben - banana and cheese and onion crisp sandwiches - yummy!!!

I also love stew that has been left for a day its so much better than on the day it was cooked!

Banana with cheese and onion? Random!

Cold toast. I love cold toast with real proper butter. Yum!
