    When we bought our house on the Isle of Wight, many years ago, we had to sign a 'warrant' agreeing that the Royal Family owned the 300 rose bushes on the property. The original warrant had been signed nearly 200 years earlier by the man who had been given the land by George III as a reward for his heroics in the Battle of Trafalgar, 1805.

    Every morning we looked out, hoping to see the Queen picking her roses in our garden.

    Well, my place is about 2000 miles from Utah but, just in case, I'll give your mom the right of first refusal.

    The Scots have lots of weird food, which Scots and some others do seem to like. Like Scotch Eggs. (Hard-boiled eggs wrapped in bacon pieces and fried) And, Deep-fried Mars Bars.

    Bubble Tea (Tea or similar stuff and Tapioca pearls) is also nice too.

    The restaurant chain I work at has cole slaw on some of our sandwiches- it's actually good.

    I found people eating a sweet apple pie with ketchup. I don’t know how does it taste but it definitely might be horrible. Boy! How do they eat that stuff?

    Gerilyn: "I found people eating a sweet apple pie with ketchup...."

    John: Dare I ask where you found these people? Perhaps at the State Home for the Culinarily Challenged?

    But wait. A Google search for "Apple pie" +"ketchup" finds this:

    Heinz's Ketchup Love Apple Pie Recipe #57152
    This is from the Heinz website. Being a Heinz addict, I am always looking for new ways to use ketchup. It sounds gross, but is really good! And it turns out so pretty. :)

    1¼ hours | 30 min prep
    1 9" unbaked pie shell
    2/3 cup flour
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    6 cups sliced tart baking apples (about 2 lbs.)
    2 teaspoons lemon juice
    1/3 cup butter, softened
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/3 cup Heinz ketchup
    Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    Blend ketchup and lemon juice; combine with apples.
    (Note: if apples are very tart, add 1 to 2 T sugar to ketchup mixture.) For topping, combine flour, sugar, and cinnamon; cut in butter until thoroughly mixed.
    Fill pie shell with apples. Sprinkle topping over apples.
    Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until apples are cooked.

    You know they'd have even more fat if it wasn't all fried off, right? Try tracking down some "washpot" style pork rinds sometime. Instead of being all puffy, they are rock hard with a nice thick layer of fat on one side. They're tasty, but have to be the most calorie-dense food on the planet.
