    For her tea, my 1 year old decided to dip a banana in her beans. She looked delighted. I won't be trying it.

    I think I take more of an issue with people who carry out, condiment misuse as I see it !

    I had a colleague I worked with last year, who would have the following from the chip shop when we called there in summer holidays, Large Minced Beef and Onion Pie, Mushy Peas, Chips and Gravy, onto which he would pour a generous helping of Heinz Tomato Ketchup, pretty much coating a large portion of it, it turned the stomach of the cleaning supervisor at the school and a couple of the cleaners (I am immune to a lot of this after working in a hospital, you quickly develop a strong stomach in that environment)

    I also have a different friend who would have a normal sunday dinner plated up, eat everything on it with a generous helping of ketchup, no gravy at all with his dinner, just a bottle of ketchup, which I found quite alien and not normal.

    Am I crazy or is this all wrong ?

    Never put piccalilli in an omelette. And I mean never! It doesn't work out very well...

    Another discovery I made a couple of years ago was how nice cold roast chicken (off of the carcass) eaten alternately with a square of or dairy milk chocolate is

    I have a problem with it if I have spent ages cooking a nice meal and someone immediately dumps ketchup on it without even tasting it. I find that very rude.
    However, if people know they like to smother a pie from a chip shop in sauce then I don't see a problem with that.

    Never fry pickled onions, they taste terrible. I tried once when I was making an omelette and didn't have any onions.

    My daughter, to get her to eat any food, ketchup has to be present on the plate. She will try with ketchup first as that is the "safe" sauce for her, if she likes it with ketchup, she will try without.

    Unfortunately she has been a fussy eater from the moment we introduced to solid foods.

    However, I will always try food before adding salt, pepper, or condiments, and usually, I will have the condiment sauces on a separate plate or small ramekin dish.

    When doing my GCSE's I normally came home between exams for lunch and have a corn beef and micro chip sandwich which isn't too unusual but is real brain food

    I got someone a pack of this as a secret santa present - Special soup

    I haven't tried it myself but I have heard its an acquired taste

    Yes it is wrong - should have been brown sauce!

    I find skittles and minstrels... two skittles (preferably the same flavour) to every one minstrel. Fruity chewy chocolate. It's genius.

    mine is a,
    ham, cheese, ketchup, mustard, salied cream and marmite sandwich

    Bread,K+Mus, Ham, Salid cream, cheese, marmite and bread
    each complements its partner very well

    the other would be any biscuit and butter icing

    Haggis pasta bake and Haggis pizza. Next on my list to try is Haggis nachos, I'll feedback on those!

    Cheese on toast with salad cream is lovely. I thought it was a normal thing but have been told since it's weird.

    Also, adding a dark chocolate bounty bar to most curries is awesome.
