#1617 – Tartar

There are some condiments in our house like ketchup and soy sauce that gets used constantly. But sometimes there’s a meal that requires something new and then the bottle just sits there until one day we realize it has been 5 years and it should get tossed. We lost power recently and when we cleaned out the fridge there were many thing that I did not even remember owning.

    For example that ancient Cthulic Chaos God Cult that has been thriving in your mango juice bottle for the last 5 years……

  2. I rarely have any condiments on my food, if ever at all. For some reason, I almost always prefer the food just the way it is, without any extra sauce or whatever it could be.

    Also, I don’t even know what tartar sauce is, except for something Spongebob says instead of swear words. …OK, I looked it up while still writing this, but I find it weird that “tartar” can be both a sauce and dental plaque.

    That’s why I usually grab packets of tartar sauce from snack bars that sell fish sandwiches and the like. toss ’em in the fridge, and if I buy fish sticks in the near future, I’m prepared. If not, it’s no big thing to trash them later.

    Peter and Lou Berryman sing a wonderful song about cleaning the refrigerator, with the immortal lines
    “What is this?”
    “It’s sauerkraut.”
    When did we buy sauerkraut?”

      The Berrymans have a LOT of good bits; been a while since they played The Coffee Gallery Backstage. Look them up!

    my grandma is very good at not tossing anything that has even a slight possibility of being edible, the funny thing is that she’s the only one in the house who worries about those things so whenever you complain to her that there’s been an open yoghurt that my little cousin didn’t eat for like five months, she complains back to you, so you can either shut up or clean it yourself :p

    The late Phyllis Diller (Celestia and Luna rest her blessed soul!) had a joke that her cheese was so old that it was barking to be let out of the refrigerator.

      Waaaaaaiiiitttt-aaammmiiinnnuuuttte; last I’d heard, she only kept ironing in the fridge (but granted, that’s been a while, really old material.) *Sigh* already miss the nerve-ends hairdo. Thanks, Phyllis! Sharp, but never Mean!

    I haven’t bought tartar sauce in years. I just make my own. A dab of mayo, a forkful of relish, a small squirt of mustard, stir with the fork you used to add the relish, and there you go.

    1. Chris says:

      Oh cool. I don’t have relish or mustard though. :/

  8. Anno Nimus says:

    Yes, but then you run out of tartar sauce for the fish sticks you bought. So you have to go out and buy more tartar sauce but then you’ll have tartar sauce left over when you finish the fish sticks so you have to go buy more fish sticks and then…

    Oh Em Gee this is so TRUE!
