Deb Dish — What one condiment is always in your fridge?
Deb Joanne – Ketchup. I love ketchup on mac and cheese, grilled cheese, hamburgers, hot dogs, french fries – so uh, apparently anything fried and/or greasy. But I’m a ketchup snob – it MUST be Heinz (at home, at least).
Deb Erika I would say it’s a tie between salsa and Trader Joe’s Lemon Curd. The salsa goes on everything but I rarely waste the curd on toast or some other appropriate bread product. By the spoonful is my favorite method.
Deb Molly Growing up in an only marginally air-conditioned house, I learned to keep my Noxzema in the fridge to maximize its cooling potential on the hottest summer days. I remember my mother coming to visit me in the first apartment that was mine alone — I was maybe 22 or 23 — and she opened the refrigerator to find nothing but a tub of Noxzema and a bottle of vodka. That’s my final answer: Noxzema and a bottle of vodka.
Deb Linda Do olives count as a condiment? Or are they more of a garnish? Whatever. I’m still going with them, because it’s hard to make a martini with mustard or ketchup. 😉 (Deb Joanne’s note: I am totally trying to figure out how to make a ketchup martini…)
Deb Rachel Barbecue sauce! I fell in love with it first at McDonald’s, when I would smother my Chicken McNuggets in their little BBQ sauce tubs. Now I’ve moved on to healthier varieties (mainly Trader Joe’s) but I’ll eat it on anything. (Including straight from my finger. Who says it needs to be served with something?)
