    My dad dug up the rhubarb plant because "No one [in this family] likes rhubarb."

    Spoilers: everyone else in the family likes rhubarb. It's a great addition to applesauce.

    Oooooh that sounds so good. I'm making applesauce today and now I wish I had some rhubarb.

    He did, and that's why we don't have it anymore.

    Just seen on Reddit:
    "Try crushing [dry ramen] up, and sprinkling it on a salad. Yum!"
    "Yes, LOVE doing that, and making dressing using the seasoning packet: add orange juice, vegetable oil, rice wine vinegar, water, and a dash of sriracha."

    There are a lot of citrus-based dressings. I can see it.

    yea citrus goes well with winter salads in general and with pasta.

    I'm aware of that being a thing for lemon, but I kinda felt orange would be too sweet.

    orange sweetness would actually mesh really well with spicier ramen imo

    Oh, yeah, I didn't think of the spicy kind (edit: and they did mention sriracha). I kinda want to try it now, but I don't drink orange juice otherwise so it might be kind of a waste.

    I wonder if changing the vegetable oil with sesame and leaving out the sriracha would be negative or just different. Mostly sounds good, but vegetable oil is bland and I just don't like sriracha that much.

    Alternately, subbing out the sriracha and the vegetable oil for chili oil might be a fair trade.

    Lambda everything happens so much

    that brief thing about milk/chocolate milk in Bad Opinions got me remembering orange milk
    like, was that anywhere else, or were we just cursed because of the Broncos? it had the mascot on it and everything

    that shit was bizarre. I don't remember how it tasted, but it must have been gross

    someone please confirm that they've seen/had it too.

    eta: the only place I ever saw it was in elementary school, so it was probably served horribly warm too.

    orange milk as in orange juice and milk? thats a thing. i forget where it comes from and what its originally called, but it is a thing. definitely an aquired taste though XP

    I don't think it was mixed, though. just orange-flavored?
    sincerely doubt a real orange ever got within a mile of the stuff

    i just recently learned about soy sauce on fried eggs. it's so good, it perfectly cuts away this flavor that usually makes me hate fried eggs, and it's a great complement

    also, salt and mustard on medium boiled eggs

    I think pretty much anything that's good on meat is also good on eggs

    Olives and chocolate. Or, more specifically, olive bread and homemade chocolate spread.
    I am pleasantly surprised by the deliciousness.
