Day 171--- What a Dip Sh!t...


I don't know if I had made mention to who finally won the blogger idol contest so I figure that now would be a good time... The winner was Mike over at Toomanymornings, he beat Candice out with a nice little story about why things that happen in Vegas should stay there... Congrats, and thanks again to Knucklehead for hosting the contest I had a great time competing in it. On to the type of person I want to talk about today. "The Dipper", no not the person who does chewing tobacco, I am talking about the people who dip their food in things...

Now it is a given that some things were meant to be dipped, for instance, chips into any dip really, beans, salsa, cheese, sour cream, guac, and so on. Ketchup lives on the fact that we are a dipping people, even certain sandwiches were made specifically to be dipped, I'm sure you all know the beef a jus... These are not the foods that I am talking about or the people that do it... I am talking about the more awkward dippers that have begun to flood our society...

Take the Oreo dippers for example, who would have thought that a small multi-racial cookie would be so good once it was drowned in milk... I'll tell you who, the forward thinking freak dippers is who. How about the people who dip their Wendy's french fries into their Frosties? Ya, you see it once and you make fun of the person doing it, but next time you are alone in a room with a small fry and a Frosty you better believe you are going to experiment... I have met people who dip pizza in mustard, call them crazy but I too had to try this out for myself and I will proudly admit it brings many flavors together quite nicely...

There are the people who dip their Mac-N-Cheese in ketchup, I am one of these people, I cannot tell you how many times in my life I have been looked at like I was defacing a cop car when I put some ketchup over a thing of Mac... There are the people that dip chips into their sandwiches, and even a few of those people end up leaving them there for a little extra crunch. In Europe it is perfectly normal to dip fries (or pretty much anything) into straight mayo. Out of all of these I have mentioned today this one is probably the most widely accepted... We pretty much do the same thing here, except we have managed to alter the mayo's DNA just a bit and turn it into ranch, which by the way is good on anything other than ice cream...

I could go on and on about all of the odd things that we have started dipping into other odd things, but I figured that would be hypocritical. I consider myself a very saucy dude, a very experimental sauce man, there is not a dip I wont try at least once, so you can bet I have hit up all of these on the list... I really don't see the harm, we are a nation and a world of people who like putting things in other things that they don't necessarily belong in, and on that list I believe food relations is really the least of our concerns... And with that I am going to go see what a Fig Newton tastes like with some crunchy peanut butter on it...

Oreo... Milk's favorite cookie.

Fries dipped in Frosties is possibly the greatest discovery since Ben Franklin flew a kite in a thunderstorm.

You're still the winner in my book. :)

I'm not so much a dipper.. more a douser.

If I want mayo on my chips, I won't dip them in there. I'll cover those sons of bitches in mayo.

Tomatoe sauce on mac n cheese is the same.

Why waste time dipping when you can prepare the meal simply by turning the bottle upside down?

I used to dip my fries in mayo. It's not that bad.

I also know someone who puts ketchup on pizza.

Amanda West said...

Haha, I've always wondered what a fry dipped in a Frosty would taste like?

But I mix ketchup and mayo together and dip nearly everything in it!

Hmmm, I like fries and mayo. Fried eggs and Toast? I'll let that one slide. But you left off the best of the best! GRAVY!!!! Seriously, what cannot be dipped in gravy and suddenly become a zillion times better? Chicken? Check. Fries and cheese curds? Check, just ask your local French Canadian. Fried Okra? Definitely Check. OK, maybe I'm just a Southern Boy with Gravy in my veins..litterally.

Oh yes I'm a dipper. I dip fries, baked potatoe, carrots, celery, onions, jalepenos, turkey, chicken, steak, cheese,... basically anything into ketchup. And if there isnt any ketchup.. i go to ranch.

Nomad said...

i almost forgot about mixing ketchup and mayo... i would also add a little mustard too it... it is called fry sauce in utah, and they actually serve it like that at most fast food places... silly mormons...

i like gravy as well... but i feel almost as fatty when eating that as i do with straight mayo..

i am glad to see that most of you all dip as well...!!!
