    I once was drinking beer, and someone came along and offered plenty of ice cream. It was delicius, but I was bloated; I felt like I'd swallowed a football. It's either one or the other or a small amount of both.

    I too could mention anything-with-tofu, but then I'm not actually sure it can be classified as a foodstuff. I think polystyrene is marginally more nutricious (and a damn sight better tasting).

    For charity, I once ate a ham, jam, mustard, custard and tuna sandwich. It was as revolting as you might imagine.

    I've tasted a few awful things here in asia. Prawn/fish/cuttlefish flavoured crisps. Chips served with sweet chili sauce and slathered in mayo. Coffee mixed with tea to the detriment of both ingredients.

    Nonsense.
    Properly produced Tofu is calorie for calorie one of the most nutritious foods you can eat. It also doesn't have much in the way of taste, that's the beauty of it because it's very flexible when it comes to seasoning and preparation.

    However, now that I am older and can afford a refrigerator those youthful days are just part of my memories. I rarely eat ice cream or drink beer any more let alone together.

    I was talking more in jest than earnest! I know tofu is perfectly edible, and having lived with a vegan for a year I've understood that is can sustain life. I just can't stand the (lack of) taste, not to mention the fact that you have chew each mouthful for a fortnight or so to actually be able to swallow.

    Blimey, that sounds pretty tough.

    My doctor tells me to eat tofu because I don't eat much meat. I actually love curries, but curried tofu ain't worth dying for. Where ice cream and beer are concerned, though, bring it on.

    Pineapple by itself is great.
    But many people like to combine it with meat and I find that unappealing...
    *ugh* Pineapple and chicken? Really?!

    I'll second that.
    Smoked ham baked with pineapple on it seems to be a favorite among people who think that pineapple enhances meat. I am of the opinion that meat is delicious by itself, so piling on pineapple only detracts from the flavor. Pineapple with chicken sounds even worse, but I don't recall having been afflicted with it, yet.

    I can't remember if I ever had pineapple with meat, but the thought of it does seem strange.

    What I am doing now with coffee would have seemed strange to me only a few months ago: I put a rounded tablespoon of coconut oil in it when it is hot. It dissolves in the hot water and then I drink it.

    Really?! Ham and pineapple is as British as fish and chips. Try it, a pineapple chunk on a cocktail stick, with an equal square of ham is the usual way of indulging.

    Come to think of it, fish and chips is also a strange combination although I was tempted to try it once when eating lunch with a British co-worker.

    When I was young after a day of strenuous work, ice cream and beer was my favorite meal. Of course I had to finish the whole quart of ice-cream or it would melt. And a six-pack of beer does get cold.

    I'm not sure I will enjoy ham with pineapple, but yes, I will give it a go.
    On the other hand, my sister LOVES ham and pineapple on a pizza, believe it or not. She orders a "Swine and Pine" at her favorite pizza parlor. Ya gotta laff at that, no? '
