    Her mac & cheese is that bad eh? :p

    I can see it on hash browns but how about grits? I've only had grits once, about 35 years ago. Don't remember if I flavored it with ketchup or not.

    Yes, ketchup on scrambled eggs, not right on boiled or fried. Mashed or baked potatoes, just no. Black pepper in the ketchup before dipping fries, awesome.

    We buy the big bottles, usually have two in the cupboard as spares.

    I put ketchup on my ketchup.

    I watch the ingredients on BBQ sauce. I have never seen Sauer's. I wont buy corn syrup like Sweet Baby Ray. We also buy Lea & Perrin's Worcestershire Sauce which we use a lot of.

    there is a track maintenance vehicle on the train tracks at the edge of my property. two tow vehicles with half a dozen low flatbed cars between. not a train, so they don't follow the train rules for horn honkery.

    it appears that the operators on both ends amuse themselves by doing double taps on the horn button. BONK BONK from the north unit. BONK BONK from the south unit. all damn day long. zero consideration for nearby residents.

    freaking railroads. like the hardware, detest the operators. kind of like Harleys and Corvettes.

    Is it catsup or ketchup? Neither one goes on scrambled eggs. Now, SALSA- that's different....

    And grits? Grits get butter and salt. Or cheese. When I starting hanging with some of the local folks in Hawai'i, one of them looked at me, grinned, said "You probably think poi is weird, huh?" Told him "Son, if you grew up eating grits, you have different values of weird."

    Putting ketchup on steak should be a felony.
    I really don't like ketchup on anything.
    Also I grew up in a house where some people put ketchup on tacos. My mother also used half a packet of mccormick taco seasoning on a pound of ground beef for tacos. My parents don't do spicy foods.
    I love remoulade.

    Ewwww. I went to college with someone like that. She carried ketchup packets in her purse just in case she went to a fancy restaurant and they didn’t have ketchup for her steak. I went to Harper. You didn’t marry a local girl, did you?

    My grandson. But he’s forgiven. He’s just a 5 year old.

    Grits need butter, salt and a fistful of sharp cheddar cheese.

    Grits are about as tasteless as Cream of Wheat. Hominy grits (nixtamilized) are at least healthy. Plain grits dont release the B vitamins. Cream of Wheat I add a little salt, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. I dont know if it would work the same with grits. Only had grits a few times and did not think much of them.

    No. Her mother cooked a lot of traditional German dishes (I don't know how well) that included a lot of dill. Maybe there's a correlation.

    So I hear.

    Less than Cream of Wheat. I remember the butter and salt but didn't have cheese on mine that one time I ate it. Not saying it was bad - it really was okay. Just not any flavor other than what was added.

    Maybe it needed ketchup..... :D

    It's safe now. Heinz sold her company to Kraft Foods.

    I grew up on Kraft Mac & Cheese. Can't stand the stuff now. Stouffer's makes some really yummy stuff but it gives me intestinal cramps.

    Wifey makes it from scratch. I have it twice a week. It's one of her better cooking successes. So apparently it's still comfort food, but not from a box.

    My wife makes really good mac & cheese but not that often. She is an excellent cook and baker. She bakes all our bread.

    I use a Mac and cheese recipe from a Mueller's pasta box, them add a little garlic, onion, and extra cheese to it. It's a hit with the neices and nephews.
