Icemilk, anyone?

It inevitably happens.

Someone forgets to put a box of milk in the fridge overnight. The next morning, you can either have warm milk or...get creative.

Now, I don't mind ice cubes in my milk, but the rest of the Three of Six family thinks it's uncivilized.

But the way I look at it, today's weirdo is tomorrow's hero. (Just look at Bill Gates). The first time someone combined chocolate and peanut butter, they must have raised eyebrows. But if Mr. Reeses was a real person, I bet he lived happily (and richly) ever after.

I'm hoping that some of our family's odd food pairings will catch-on and make us famous:

1) Crunched-up Graham crackers in applesauce -- eat it before they get too soft
2) Pepsi in milk -- don't try it in reverse, it'll curdle, but Four of Four says it's good. (I'll stick with my ice milk).
3) Mix Fanta Orange and Sprite, and voila: "Spranta" (Hat-tip to Sue)
4) brown sugar in tea -- better flavor
5) pickle relish and cheese sandwich

When it comes to strange combos, beauty is often in the eye of the beholder.
