potato chips and mayonaise

I went to olive branch for lunch today and as I was sitting eating my sandwich, I realized something; when I am at olive branch, I eat my potato chips with mayonnaise.  I do not eat them like this anywhere else.  is this weird?  does anyone else have strange ways of eating things only at certain restaurants?

strawberries foster

so, friday night, for dessert, I had the most wonderful dish that was like bananas foster, but they made it with strawberries.  of course, mike and I had to try our hand at making it and it turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself.  here's our recipe

3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
dash of cinnamon
2 shots of grand marnier
1/2 cup sliced bananas
2 scoops vanilla ice cream
  1. combine the butter, sugar, and cinnamon in a skillet.
  2. place the pan over low heat and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.
  3. stir in the grand marnier and the strawberries and cook for 5 minutes to soften the strawberries
  4. generously spoon warm sauce and strawberries over the top of the ice cream and serve immediately.
