Husband appears incapable of eating any meal without ketchup/brown/mayo/salad cream. Apart from curry. Salad cream goes on lasagne, pasta and bloody stir fry! All home cooked from scratch. Abu to be a bit pissed off about it? I know he's an adult and can eat what he wants but makes me wonder why I bother cooking nice tasty food.

LTB wink

OK I think you're right.

I'm an autocondimenter as well. It's a curse.

Salad cream on anything is an abomination in my view! It's nasty faux-mayo.

But as you say, he's an adult and can eat what he likes. You wouldn't like it if he was the one cooking and objected to your choice of condiment.

Wrong, so wrong. Salad cream on lasagne? shock

LTB! wink

Nottalotta Sun 29-May-16 20:00:54

Ah well. He's never cooked so that's never happened....

I couldn't live with someone who was so disrespectful of my cooking into which I put a great deal of thought. So yeah - LTB from me too. Salad cream is the work of the Anti-Christ so there's another reason to hoof him out!

Eugh. So wrong.

Salad cream on Lasagne & stir fry, No just No!

Why home cook for him to ruin, feed him ready meals

Nottalotta Sun 29-May-16 20:05:47

It was king prawns, noodles, veg, sort of chilli sauce. And bloody salad cream. Aldi salad cream at that.

nanetterose Sun 29-May-16 20:06:17

I am in exactly the same boat.
I honestly thought there couldn't be another man like my DH.
I'm sorry for you - but relieved l'm not the only one.
Ketchup on a delicate fish sauce anyone? grin

freshprincess Sun 29-May-16 20:06:51

Salad cream is always wrong.

sepa Sun 29-May-16 20:07:19

hmm My first reaction was eww gross. Then I remembered that I have ketchup on roast so I'm not sure I can judge him

JassyRadlett Sun 29-May-16 20:07:29

Oh my god what? That is grim. And clearly the man has no palate.

Floggingmolly Sun 29-May-16 20:08:03

I love salad cream, but I couldn't imagine it on anything hot hmm

Floggingmolly Sun 29-May-16 20:08:39

Ketchup on roast is perfectly fine...

KatieKaboom Sun 29-May-16 20:08:49

I never understand this way of thinking.

I'm grateful if anyone eats the slop I dish up and don't think it's on to tell other people how to enjoy what goes in their own mouths.

I also suspect that the words 'salad cream ' should come with a trigger warning on this site: how ghastly and working class. wink

CrazyDuchess Sun 29-May-16 20:08:56

I am sorry OP I am with your DH on this one - salad cream is food of the Gods! Mmmm it goes with everything!

Would you feel the same if it was mayonnaise made from scratch?

JassyRadlett Sun 29-May-16 20:12:32

Would you feel the same if it was mayonnaise made from scratch

I bloody would. Are there so many people who don't like the taste of actual food - or don't actually know what food really tastes like?

To me condiments are supposed to enhance the taste of the food you're eating and therefore should compliment the dish in some way - not totally overpower or mask the flavour.

Thingsthatmakeugoummmm Sun 29-May-16 20:12:46

You are being unreasonable Nottalotta. It's his choice, he is an adult and therefore can eat his meal as he pleases. I have ketchup on everything including curries although I sometimes use mayonnaise instead which is my choice and as an adult can do as I please. It might be habit but it's how I enjoy my food ☺️

Nottalotta Sun 29-May-16 20:13:42

Mayonnaise made from.scratch on stir fry? Yes I'd still feel the same. Surely there are plenty of flavours already in the food? I am not anti salad cream, I'm partial to a cheese cucumber and salad cream sandwich.

Pinkheart5915 Sun 29-May-16 20:14:20

i remember that I have Ketchup on roast SEPA My brother done this when we were children and even now at 36 when he appears to have a good palate when in restaurants but put a roast dinner in front of him and his at the ketchup
