  1. Amy Loves Condiments

    Sunday, August 5, 2012



    The inside right door of my refrigerator is completely stocked.  So much so, that by looking at my condiment door, one would think that I was a millionaire.  I have every condiment known to man.  I have about 4 different types of  mayonnaise, 5-7 types of mustard, hot sauce galore, salsas, chutneys, ketchup (yummy), a plethora of vinegars, BBQ sauce, steak sauces,  wostershire sauce, horseradish (well, all of the makings for a Bloody Mary), of course some packets of duck sauce, and finally, my all-time favorite  - salad dressing. 

    I have always loved salad dressing.  I started out my salad career with ranch dressing and quickly moved over to blue cheese.  I dabbled a little in French, honey mustard, creamy Italian, creamy parmesan, Poppy seed, etc.  However, once the delectable taste of vinaigrette hit my tongue, I never turned back.  Vinaigrette is the greatest culinary creation ever.  Balsamic vinaigrette, red wine vinaigrette, Greek vinaigrette, artichoke vinaigrette, lemon – garlic vinaigrette, shallot vinaigrette, Caesar vinaigrette….I can go on and on by putting any word in front of vinaigrette.  I enjoy a good salad and understand the health benefits, but there is nothing I love more than a soggy vinaigrette salad.

    Ted Nugent getting ready to shoot me.  It makes him very happy.
    Let’s be honest here…I drink vinaigrette.  I can’t get enough of the shit.  I used to hide my disgusting habit…actually duck into the women’s bathroom at my day job, to have my salad dressing time.  Now, I wear it proudly....on my face.  My favorite is Pret a Manger’s Balsamic Vinaigrette.  I could drink vats and vats of it….maybe even bathe in it.  Sometimes, Pret’s vinaigrette is the best part of my day.  I could be run over by a taxi, hit in the face by a homeless person then shot in the knee by Ted Nugent …but, follow that up with a cup of vinaigrette, suddenly everything is better and all is forgotten.  Vinaigrette is my Calgon.




    In conclusion, give me vinaigrette, or give me death!
