before tabasco, there was ketchup. my first condiment love -- sweet, tangy, and delicious -- the perfect compliment to almost any food. i used to put it on everything imaginable, and if there was ever any left on my plate, you'd better believe i'd be licking it up.
until i met my now brother-in-law, i had never found anyone who might actually beat me in a ketchup-loving contest, but he is truly the king of ketchup. he puts it on things i had never thought to put ketchup on -- mashed potatos, mac and cheese, thanksgiving turkey, and more. it's inspirational, really...so i suppose i am as thankful for a ketchup-loving-brother-in-law as i am for ketchup.
happy birthday, chris!
