    Default What are the strangest things your relatives do?

    Mmm condensed milk salad dressing is awesome, it's got a lot of vinegar and a wee bit of mustard in it. I think it's an nz thing, everyone I know back home makes this, yet no one has heard of it here..

    My nana refuses to put gas in her own car, before granddad died he always did it for her, now she just drives up to the petrol station and waits til someone helps her, she says it can take up to 30 minutes sometimes!

    I dont see anything wrong with this

    I said she kept her loaf of bread in the fridge not freezer. I myself freeze bread so I don't see it as an issue my point was I find it odd since it dries out bread. She buys the hot cooked bbq chicken and freezes that. She doesn't eat any part of it she just freezes it straight away for "later" instead of actually buying it and consuming it the day of purchase which is usually recommended for lots of reasons. I'm Not talking raw chicken to be cooked, at a later date....

    If I plan on using the bread that day or next, I also keep it in the fridge (otherwise straight in the freezer).
    Wow to the cooked roast chicken

    Default What are the strangest things your relatives do?

    I had "family dinner" with MIL a whopping four times before we stopped seeing her. Each time she began dinner by saying "and I've licked one of the forks. This will be fun."
    I sat horrified. DH spent the drive home apologising. This is a woman who at her kids birthday said "nothing wrong with popping pills to get in the mood." Pills were ecstasy. Her kid was turning 4.

    DHs dad collected tiny cafe packets of vegemite. He froze them in a bag. Apparently counted them when he was bored.
    DHs step dad always kissed the petrol cap door thing before putting petrol in. He was paranoid about catching fire. I understood. Still weird though.

    The strangest was probably DHs grandparents. His grandmother always put out bread rolls with every meal. We met at a park for lunch once, having sandwiches and she still bought the rolls. She wouldn't let DH eat his birthday cake unless he ate the bread roll. Adamant about it. One of her quirks I thought were funny, which was nice given she's a crazy so and so.

    A lot of the crazy seems to be coming from mothers in law. Whats the deal? Do they drop the freaking ball when we hook up with their sons or are some of them just mental??
