the Caesar dressing that comes in the Dole salad package...best dressing ever. I wish they would just bottle it.

The great thing about barbeque is that when you get hungry 3 hours later....you can lick your fingers

Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away.

Miracle Whip. :blush:

Me too.

"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

Well, if Heinz Ketchup doesn't count, I'll say French's Mustard. I neeeeeed that for my Nathan's hot dogs. Although I am learning to use fancy German mustard now.

I don't think Heinz Ketchup counts, because I married a Picksburgher, and now I'm not allowed to use any other sort of ketchup. Since I don't use ketchup often, I'm OK with that.

But French's Mustard is at the top of my list of trashy condiments. I know good mustard. I own good mustard. I know how to make good homemade mustard. And yet, there is something about that bright yellow stuff that makes my mouth sing. I even put it on scrambled eggs.

Oh, the shame.

Hell yes for the French's love. A hot dog is not a hot dog without it, although it may have other applications.

Heinz Ketchup. No homemade, no "gourmet" for me.

Geez, I consider Heinz to be the "good" stuff and the "gourmet," organic dreck to be bad.

I actually prefer the flavor of the Heinz organic ketchup over their standard... It just tastes more tomatoey.

My weakness is celery seed salt. My blood pressure has a different opinion.

In-N-Out Burger spread packets. It's thousand island dressing.

The odd clear and pink Sweet-n-sour sauce at chinese take out houses mixed with the chinese hot mustard packets. The best on a greasy egg roll.

I like Aussie-style tomato sauce, but only in a sausage sizzle situation: overcooked snag laid diagonally on a bit of doughy white bread and topped with grilled onions. Otherwise it's Heinz ketchup all the way.

Have to be dodgy supermarket mystery bags, too. With a list of ingredients that says something like, 'Meat (45%) ...' And a white supermarket loaf. A $20/kilo organic Daylesford bull-boar sausage in a $6 sourdough just isn't right.

Oh, yes, absolutely! TipTop, or even better, generic bread. Somehow it complements the dodgy sausage and sauce perfectly. But I really can't stand it otherwise.
