10 on Tuesday: 10 Foods That Belong Together

This week's 10 on Tuesday topic is: 10 Foods That Belong Together.

1.  Chocolate and peanut butter.  A classic.
2.  Strawberries and champagne.  (Is champagne a food?  I guess I think so since I'm putting it in the category because really, how perfect is that pairing?)
3.  Blue cheese and pears.  Nice, ripe pears are great thrown into a spinach salad with a little bit of blue cheese and walnuts.  Yum!
4.  Pulled pork BBQ and coleslaw.
5.  Guacamole and salted, crispy corn tortillas.
6.  Steamed spiced shrimp with corn on the cob.
7.  PB&J.  I lived on that when I was a kid.  I still get a hankering for a PB&J sandwich every so often.
8.  Chocolate chip cookies and ice-cold milk.
9.  Bagels and cream cheese.  Although I do also like a bit of preserves on top of the cream cheese too.  Not mandatory tho!
10.  Beer and pizza.  And I'm not even that interested in beer, but a cold one with a hot slice of pizza tastes awfully good!

Gee - an awful lot of carbs in that list.  I think I'm off most of what I think of as "perfect pairings" except for an occasional #2 and #3!
