    Cold custard with something hot and hot custard with something cold always works well. On it's own, take your pick. It's good either way, but I think the flavour is slightly superior when it's cold.

    Baked beans taste best when they've been heated up and then cooled down again. On their own I'd have them cold, but eaten as part of a meal they tend to be nicer hot. (The manufacturers always advise not boiling them, but they actually taste better if you boil the hell out of them. And it thickens the sauce. Thin sauce on beans is unacceptable.)

    I thought I was the only one who thought that. I've suffered a lot of abuse for my "mad" idea over the years.

    Is that why you moved to Finland?

    Yes. I was ostrazised by my family and village. Things came to a head when local chefs caught me eating some hot apple pie and cold custard in the forest late at night. I had to flee the country. I'd heard Finns eat weird desserts (see below) so I thought I'd be better off and safe here.

    about 90 seconds is enough.

    but yeah, Hot sauces and cold desserts or cold sauces and warm desserts.

    Here's a question. I eat scrambled egg on toast as actual toast with my hands instead of using a knife and fork. Does that make me as weird as my parents make out?

    And to add my own: Pasta hot or cold?

    Yes, yes it does.

    Hmm...tough one.

    I'd probably go with cold though.

    Hot, hot, hot.

    Yes. It probably also means you're over-scrambling the eggs. :cool:

    Either, so long as it has already been heated and cooled. Heated then cooled then heated again is best though. It's a carb thing. :evil:

    I tend to eat the bulk of the egg with a fork then pick up the egg covered toast and eat it.
    I like pasta either way.

    For the leftover pizza, Cold. Whoever says otherwise is wrong. :p

    Curry, had this phal (sp) the other day... Wow... the intensity was just so high that my pee burned for the first two pees in the morning. However, ever since I ate a raw Scorpion moruga butch t or whatever (I have some seeds and they will be deadly once I grow them) I never got that "passing the sun" feeling in the morning bowel movements. But really hot is how I usually like them.

    Btw, has anyone tried to plant chillies indoor?

    I had this amazing scotch bonnet curry some time ago... It was very hot but the taste is so nice... almost like butter... damn...

    As for custard, Cold
    And the beans, cold if i am feeling lazy, hot if I want a proper breakfast... before I began having smoothies for breakfast...

    Definitely with jam. Though I generally avoid peanut butter in sandwiches as for some disgusting reason, most people I know who make peanut butter sandwiches always add a layer of butter on the bottom before adding the peanut butter for a double butter effect. Yick.

    Butter the bread then add the peanut butter - should be moist enough then without the jam. I find adding jam makes the whole thing just too sweet. I use a savoury low sugar brand.

    PS It has to be crunchy.

    Peanut butter is food of the devil. It's foul, ungodly stuff. Always hated it. Almond butter on the other hand....

    I wonder if I don't like peanut butter because I don't like peanuts. :dunno:

    Peanut butter sarnies with any kind of fruit jelly are good. Peanut butter sarnies with sweet pickle are also good. And peanut butter and banana sarnies are great, especially when you need a humungous amount of energy. And you can add a little jam or jelly to them too!
