Welcome to Like or Dislike, where you get to share how you really feel about ingredients from the pantry, ingredients I'm thinking about adding to my pantry, other seasonal foods, even favorite cooking gear. Do you like, dislike, love, crave, despise, wish for, use in your own kitchen? The things you like are sure to find their way to the recipes here on The Perfect Pantry, so do tell!
In the house where I grew up, ketchup occupied a place of honor in the refrigerator door. I ate everything with ketchup: eggs, burgers, chicken, and fish, and the occasional piece of calf's liver my mother tried to pass off as healthy food (the liver required an extra-large dose of ketchup). More recently, I've added it to Pad Thai (weird?), barbecue sauce (less weird) and turkey meatloaf (not at all weird). I still put ketchup on my cheese omelets, and I mix it with Greek yogurt to make a low-fat "Russian" dressing for salads. There's always a place for ketchup in my refrigerator door.
