Ketchup: Perhaps the world's most useless condiment

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Honestly though, since I’ve had kids I realize how silly ketchup is. It’s basically red sugar. My kids will just eat ketchup by itself if I’m not watching.
This is how to get kids to eat food they don't like.
It's like cheddar sauce on broccoli

For broccoli I mix mayonnaise and a little Dijon and if we’re having Asian food I’ll throw in some soy sauce. Kids eat it every time.

I had a friend when I was growing up who ate ketchup on his green peas and green beans...I tried it cause I don't like veggies...I then added Ketchup to the list of thing I didn't like and didn't eat it for many many years. I prefer A-1 on my french-fries and other places people use Ketchup. Its just been the last few years that I will use Ketchup if they don't have A-1 handy...but a little goes a long way

If it was from a 19th century English recipe, you'd do unmentionable things with it.

I was going to make a joke about bangers but it seemed a little too on the nose.

Are we talking about tots in a bag from the freezer section of the local Piggly Wiggly you visit?

If so, you waste A1 on those. Is that right?

Put a couple of over-easies on top of your hash browns. Drizzle A1 on top. Cut through and let the yolk and A1 goosh down through the hash browns.

Dang, son...

I like to drag hard boiled eggs through it, too.
