The Ketchup Chronicles
You know you use it
Now that we are coming up on the eating season I thought long and hard on the perfect food. This food is used in all countries and in several forms. It is made up of basic food groups combined into a heavenly sauce. It can be combined in almost any dish and used as a garnish in others. Some people have told me they used it to enhance the dish they ate while others told me it was used to mask the taste of a horrible dish. Best of all in comes in a wide variety of containers. Although a fat plastic squeeze bottle is it's normal vessel of transportation ketchup can be found in glass bottles and the ever so popular squeeze packet. You can leave it out, refrigerate it or put a packet of it in your pocket so it can be used anyplace. Have you ever ate a meatloaf without a drizzle of it across the top? With the exception of our Canadian neighbors who use malted vinegar, how many french fries have you ate without ketchup on them? Squirt it on your hamburger put a shot in your chilli or put it as I do on hot buttered toast. I can't think of anything other than ice cream that can't be enhanced by the sweet and sour taste of this heavenly condiment. So now's the time to be jolly squeeze out some ketchup for your honey so she can taste what you have made and not make that face that she is afraid to eat the dish that you prepared to give her a break from her daily dinner prepares.
