Today I am participating in Jenny Matlocks Alphabe Thursday
"C" is for Condiments
Not to sound too Andy Rooneyish but..
Have you ever noticed how strongly convicted we are in our preference for which condiments we do and do not like?
For example, I love Mayo. OHHH that reminds me "Happy Cinco de "Mayo" day ;) just a little joke, I know it was a bad one but anyway... I actually stole that one from a joke I read. Nothing political.. just a little joke.
Where was I??
Oh yes, I LOVE Mayo. I love it on hamburgers, sandwiches, even hot dogs sometimes. I've also been known to dip a fry or two in it from time to time.
Susie (my MIL) really hates mayo, and she is very "passionate" in her conviction of hating mayo.
I also like mustard on just about anything, but not the fancy stuff. Just plain ole yellow mustard will do fine for me.
Mark (my hubby) has always been a mustard guy. He likes it on just about everything. He used to love to dip his Lays potato chips in it (still does once in a while).
I do not care much for Ketchup except to dip fries in. I will tolerate it on a Wendy's single (with cheese of course) because I never think to ask for no Ketchup so I've just learned to like it on those occasions.
Connor and Alex have always preferred mustard on everything for the most part, although just a few months ago Connor requested Ketchup on his hot dog and when I acted surprised he kind of insinuated that he had been eating Ketchup on his hot dogs for a long time.. Okay, I know I'm a full time working Mom now but how did I miss that?
Alex still pretty much sticks with mustard. Neither of the kids really cares to dip their fries in Ketchup which has always astounded me. How can you like Ketchup but not want to dip a fry in it??
Is Relish a condiment?? Relish is something that Mark and I never cared for but some of our parents and grandparents LOVE it. In my condiment experience I find that people either love or hate relish. There really is no in between with this particular condiment.
I could go on and on but do you see what I mean?? We are SOOOO passionate about our condiments.
What kind of condiment person are you?? Mustard? Ketchup? Mayo? Oh.. and we could go further, if you like Mayo, do you prefer Regular Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip?? My mom always bought Miracle Whip. I remember her treating it like it was such a luxury, which it was!
So which is it for you??? Mustard, Ketchup, Mayo?? Have you ever mixed the 3... I know, I know, it doesn't sound good but don't knock in until you've tried it, ;)
