I confess.  I like ketchup.  And I add it to lots of foods.  Suzanne says nobody...NOBODY....puts ketchup on a taco.  But I do.  Hot dogs?  Of course.  Hamburgers?  Certainly.  Spaghetti?  When left to my own devices, yes.  Meatloaf?  Absolutely.  French Fries?  Fish filet?  You guessed it.

I don't recall the origins of my ketchup likings.  Certainly by the time of my mission I was adding ketchup to any number of our meager missionary recipes.  It never occurred to me that I was in any way unusual in this regard.  There are countless foods I don't add ketchup to.  Such as breakfast cereal, or vegetables, or ice cream.  I mean, come on.  Those would be unusual.  Maybe an indication of mental instability.

So, there you have it.  If I knew how to do one of those online voting things I'd see how my readers are divided on this.  But no matter, I'm secure in my tastes.


  1. You forgot to add your favorite missionary recipe. Brown 1 lb. ground beef, don't drain grease. Add 1 can pork n beans and a bottle of catsup.

    Think I'm gonna hurl.

  2. Jeremy loves ketchup, too, and will eat it with a lot of things. He considers it more of a general sauce.

    I remember eating ketchup with tacos, and also with spaghetti, I think, while growing up.

  3. That's because you belonged to the Ketchup Users Association.
