And he revels in his lack of sophistication.
Chef, garçon, and maître d’ are not going to like that.
I don’t know what that is, so maybe it’s not such a big deal? (If it’s a steak, fine. But not if it’s filet mignon, because that would be weird.)
Just don’t ask for salt.
Nooooooo! Tabasco, on the other hand…
He bearly likes it without the sauce.
For French Fries ! Oh Yea !
Can’t stand the taste of it.
A steak house in NJ now just a memory served a tomato au jus reduction as a side option with their steak. Yep, it was ketchup & pan drippings whisked together. -———————————————————————If you cannot find ketchup on the shelf try this: 1 can tomato paste, 1/4 cup white vinegar, 1/2 cup light brown sugar, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp dehydrated onion flakes, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 cup water. mix in a sauce pan over low heat until the mixture thickens and the onion flakes soften. Decant into a glass jar with a lid [this stains plastic badly if lock & lock or Tupperware is used it is 1 and done] place in the refrigerator to cool.
a long ago girlfriend who thought that ketchup was the universal seasoning always asked me why i didn’t want her to cook for me…
i’ve seen men get chased with a meat cleaver for that….
That’s like people who make antique mahogany furniture better by painting it.
Reagan would say he’s getting his daily dose of veggies.
A friend, while in Paris, asked for some ketchup for her pommes frites. They brought it out with a little silver spoon and a large sneer. I wonder how they would have reacted if she asked for mayo.
I prefer to dice up fresh tomatoes in my meatloaf. A step up?
Only a barbarian puts ketchup on a steak. A connoisseur Plugger, will take a bite first to determine something is missing, then use horseradish, Heinz 57, A-1, or a combination.
Hot sauce for me
there’s hardly anything that can’t be improved by ketchup ;-)
Another serving of vegetables ….
“Expert Chefs” just don’t have the same tastes as normal people.
One Christmas we gave my brother-in-law a case of ketchup as a gift.
And now they have a shortage of ketchup packets!
How about Dijon mustard?
A plugger in a suit? Eating in a restaurant with an “expert chef”?
Really bad move. It’s not a plugger thing, it’s an idiot thing. (I did know a man once who put ketchup on everything, even salad. Ick!)
A certain former president ate his steaks waaayy overcooked and drowned in ketchup. If that was his only transgression…
Nope, Worcestershire sauce.
That stuff is so gross!
The fanciest restaurant this plugger ever ate in was Tivoli’s in Rosslyn, Virginia. It was in 1983 for my wedding dinner and I don’t remember much about it except it was fancy. I do remember the food was exceptional and we were waited on very diligently (but NOT hovered over). Of course, part of that could have been because my sister was the hostess (which was a different position than a hostess at Denny’s). LOL
