Ketchup, Forgive Me

I’m eating a couple baked potatoes for lunch today. I brought along the small chunk of cheese remaining in the fridge, but decided to wing it for the rest of the condiments; the office fridge usually has a good selection, often including leftover pats of butter. But of course, past results are no guarantee of future performance, so my choices today were ketchup, mustard, various salad dressings, tahini, and mayonnaise.*

Yes, I ate ranch dressing on a baked potato. Ranch dressing is the new black! It wasn’t as good as butter and chives, but it was okay. I feel horribly guilty, though, and hereby resolve to eat a plate full of ketchup for supper tonight.

* Hot sauce is not a legitimate choice.

    That tahini’s been there 7-odd months, since i’m pretty sure i left it accidently after pita for lunch one day…

    Yebbut how long does it take for tahini to go bad?

    According the “Table of Condiments that Periodically go bad” (arranged like the periodic table to boot), 1 month. I knew i’d doomed that tahini when i left it in Upland. (actually it was bad, bitter tahini to start with, now it’s probably even more ornery.)

    Whoa. That’s a lot of tahini to eat in a month! Who eats that much tahini? And how?

    It better be Heinz ketchup…

    The Heinz corporation, like most other corporations, gives money to both parties… I think I’ll stick to generic.
