Let’s talk about sauce

If I did use some kind of sauce, I would be B. But I am not really fond of sauces, dips, gravies or dressings. I prefer my food with nothing on it. Even pasta and rice. No sauce, not salt, no spice. If I do put something on it, it is usually pepper. I do eat chips (known as French fries in many countries) with mayonnaise sometimes (it’s a Dutch thing), and I like sweet and sour sauce with Chinese food. But otherwise, nothing.

Desserts are another story though. With desserts I love sauces and toppings. Cream, ice cream, custard, vanilla or chocolate sauce.

Now I am hungry…

  1. If I use ketchup on fries, it would look like A. This is because if you’re going to use ketchup anyways, put it all over the fries and save energy, which leads to efficiency. Take fry/ketchup, insert into mouth – voila! efficiency. Also, you end up with no *leftover* ketchup.

    Now, if your fries/ketchup look like B, you’re going to have to take a fry and dab it into the ketchup *each and every time*, which isn’t energy-efficient. Plus, if you have less fries (to begin with) than ketchup, you’d end up with leftover ketchup (which my older brother did *all the time* and probably still does) which gets tossed out and is wasteful.

    Sometimes I like ketchup (see A), but a lot of the time I prefer mayonnaise with my fries. No, I’m not Dutch – over 25 years ago someone (not Dutch) at work had mayo with his fries, and I decided to try it out the next time I had fries. One taste and I was hooked!! Now, with mayo, my fries/mayo look like B. This is mainly because I don’t want to end up weighing 500lbs., and also because it’s pretty difficult to put mayo on fries to approximate A.

    Because I’m not a sweets person, if I do have any kind of dessert I prefer them naked. No whipped cream, no sauce, no ice cream on top. Absolutely naked, in their original form.

    Truth be told, a bowl of all sorts of different berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries even, etc.) would be my ideal dessert – naked, of course.

  2. Firstly, I in terms of the picture I would also go with B.

    Secondly, I am the opposite in terms of I NEED sauce to make things nice. The more sauce the better (there is a limit though).
