    Hey all,

    What's the law surrounding condiments in your place? For mine if I even touch the bbq sauce the missus busts a nut, on left overs it's ok but fresh cooked is a no go.

    How about for you?

    The law is that if it is in the fridge or pantry it belongs to whichever of my teenaged sisters gets to it first and will be consumed in its entirety the next day while the jobless consumer watches TV in their pajamas all day.

    Vegemite lives in the pantry, ditto for jams, conserves, honey, Nutella.

    Mustard, Crushed garlic, Sambal Olek & any relishes live in the fridge.

    Sriracha is allowed on anything.

    Kecap Manis must always be in the house at all times.


    I live on my own.

    Tomato sauce belongs on meat pies and burgers. Anything else demands fresh ingredients and the appropriate spices.

    And wine.

    Or beer.

    You have to clean the top if you use the sauce.

    Sauces live in the cupboard, as does the vegemite and real butter.
    Relish, mustard and pickles live in the fridge.

    Not referring to condiments, bread lives on the bench and not in the freezer. If that means I have to feed it to an animal after a week then fine. But no frozen bread thankyou.

    The only woman entitled to tell you what to put on your food is your mother. And that's only when you are a child. Are you a child or did you marry your mum? If not please check between your legs and confirm your testicles have dropped :)

    i put sauce on whatever the hell I feel like. And I dont care if the missus puts sauce/gravy on any of the food I cook.

    Who the hell worries about sauce? I'd put sauce on gordon ramsey's food if I felt it needed it....

    Moved by the understanding that the purity of German blood condiments in my pantry and fridge is essential to the further existence of the German people, Australian people and inspired by the uncompromising determination to safeguard the future of the German nation domestic bliss of my household, the Reichstag houseowner has unanimously resolved upon the following law, which is promulgated herewith

    1. CONDIMENTS GO ON FOOD LOL :p
    2. PEOPLE WHO COMPLAIN ABOUT RULE 1 CAN FOAD :p

    Is this gonna become another fridge vs pantry debate?

    As mentioned, some things DEMAND a condiment.
    For me the kickers are:
    Pork ribs - always have a good bbq sauce on standby.
    Chicken breast - I have a good bottle of Chilli Factory "Hot Chilli Mango Sauce" with a 10/10 rating. Goes great with chicken linky
    Anything with rice - Chilli flake grinder

    My latin girlfriend HAS to have lemon juice on her salad. It's too overpowering for me, though.

    She also HAS to have salt on tomatoes. I prefer to eat them fresh. Then again I don't put salt on anything. Unless it's chicken salt on chips :p

    i'm not even sure i have tomato or bbq sauce in my house...

    i have a good chilli sauce (for sausages only), other than that it's all chinese/malay condiments.

    i dont think all the spices i have count (e.g. for ribs and stuff), they're used before cooking so not technically a condiment.

    Well done steak needs sauce to have any flavour.

    Rare on the other hand...

    Pantry:
    - Sauces
    - Vegemite
    - Nutella
    - Peanut Butter
    - Jams (before opening)

    Fridge:
    - Jams (after being opened)
    - Mustard
    - Crushed Garlic

    Above the stove in that awkward little 'around the rangehood vent' cupboard:
    - Various Spices
    - Salts
    - Pepper

    As far as putting stuff on food it doesn't matter, put whatever you want on whatever you want.

    The one thing we can't agree on is how to store the bread. Personally, I have no qualms with putting bread in the freezer and just nuking it if I want a sandwich, though the other half is stupid picky with what she eats - and only likes 'fresh' bread. So she buys a new loaf, has a sandwich that day, and then flat out refuses to put it in the freezer purely because of that like for 'fresh bread'. Never mind it's just for that one sandwich and the loaf doesn't get touched again, the logic doesn't seem to extend to that point. So to avoid a stupid argument I leave the loaf on the counter, half a week later it's moldy. Rinse and repeat. Every. Bloody. Week.

    Is your missus a chef? Thats pretty bad...

    Tomato/BBQ sauce goes in the fridge, I'm not eating fermented shit that no one has cleaned the lid on that will squirt in every direction except where I want it to go, it says refrigerate after opening for a reason.

    If it is a decent steak / cut of meat then it does't require cheap and nasty bulk made sauce that you get from the supermarket.

    Cheap steak / sausages / rissoles - go nuts.

    Tell her to cook a decent steak or make a nice Jus or Gravy from scratch.

    Crumbed steak + Dianne sauce FTMFW!
