    2) Thou shalt make sure others are served enough before taking seconds. Thou shalt mentally calculate thy share when serving thyself communally, and take a little less.
    3) Thou shalt not be a food snob. Which is not the same as thou being choosy; the difference is thy attitude. It is good for thou to be choosy, it is bad for thou to have an attitude about it.
    4) Thou shalt take pleasure in friends and family gathering about food. This pleasure is primal and universal.
    5) Thou shalt learn to cook well. Understanding is a virtue, and knowledge is power. Thou shalt use thy new found power wisely and genially for others.
    6) Thou shalt understand that baking is part science and part witchcraft. Those who have mastered this art are to be revered, and their products are to be eaten.
    7) Thou shalt try to seduce and marry one of the bakery witches. Failing that, thou shalt try to seduce and marry one of their brothers or sisters.
    8) Thou shalt keep one's kitchen clean.
    9) Thou shalt try new things; a nibble, anyhow. Again, thou shalt use thy head; thou need not try to out-Bourdain Bourdain. But it is OK to try just a nibble of that fish stew. Thou might enjoy it. Or not, but now thou knowest.
    10) Thou shalt be allowed to break these commandments within reason, when breaking them does not injure thy friends either physically or emotionally. It is OK for thou to break them in private, as thou sees fit. For example, thou may accept thy neighbor's gift of jellied English eels graciously, and then in private refuse to nibble and also scoff at thy neighbor for eating such a thing... but graciously, thankful for the gift, and in private. As a corollary, thou art allow to lie about how good it was.

    So well said, A lesson for all.

      Sizz, I have a quibble with this one. Even though our interstate highway system is rife with proliferation of all things chains, there is still some wonderful food to be found right off those exit ramps. For instance, my last Roadfood experience, at Bobcat Bite in Santa Fe, is a heavy stone's throw from I-25. That and many other establishments probably listed on this website would be immediately disqualified.

      I think he's talking about big city places.
      if you get much more than 1/2 mile off I-5 where I live,
      You could quickly be talking to Mr. Bear and Mrs. Cougar.


      And he obviously forgot about the In-N-Outs. I do not think any exist that aren't within a 1/2 mile of a freeway.




      I never thought about that, but I think you're right except for the one next door to Hooter's at Fisherman's Wharf San Francisco.

      It's also only one of two without a drive thru. The other one has one but has never been used because the neighbors on the opposite side from the freeway successfully blocked it.

      I wonder if there is another one not visible from the freeway.

      Does anyone know ?

          11. Thou Shalt never use Miracle Whip on or in anything.

          Miracle Whip destroys any brand of mayonnaise in a blind taste test and is therefore an excellent replacement for mayonnaise anywhere. And BLTs absolutely, positively require Miracle Whip! 
           
          In general though, leave the Ten Commandments to those anointed for the job. Stick to your day job of delivering the ball to open receivers.

              1. Thou Shalt not Double Dip.
              Agree.  Unless I'm eating by myself or just with Janet. 
               
              2. Thou Shalt not put Ketchup on a Hot Dog.
              Agree, but Janet does this. 
               
              3. Thou Shalt not put Sugar in Coffee.
              We don't drink coffee, but if we did, it would need a lot of sugar. .... Like a Cuban cortadito or Cafecito.   
               
              4. Thou Shalt not cook a Steak greater than Medium.
              Disagree.  We realize we're in the minority here, but we like our meat cooked all the way through, rather than only half-way done. Red juices are blood.  We're not into eating raw blood.   :)
               
              5. Thou Shallt not Boil Ribs.
              Agree.
               
              6. Thou Shalt not Boil Bratwurst or Hot Dogs.
              Agree, but steamed and then finished on the grill is okay. 
               
              7. Thou Shalt not use a Microwave for anything other than Popcorn.
              Strongly Disagree.   Microwave popcorn is pretty nasty!  We only make "real" popcorn in a pot on the stovetop.  However, using the microwave to melt some butter to pour on the popcorn is okay.
               
              8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad.
              Agree.  Also should not ruin tuna or potatoes with mayo as many do.  Tuna shoud be done as steaks on a grill, and potatoes can be mashed, boiled, baked, etc..... but never ruined with nasty mayo, as is done in most potato salads. 
               
               9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar.
              Agree.
               
               
              10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar.
              Disagree.  It's my personal pickle jar that only I use.  :) 
               
              11. Thou Shalt never use Miracle Whip on or in anything.
              Agree.  No mayo, either :)
               
              12. Thou Shalt not put Beans in Chili
              Agree!
               
              13. Thou Shalt not put Steak Sauce on Prime Cut of Steak.
              Agree!

                              agree with all except number 8.  Potato salad is great with eggs, as is tuna salad.  Niether are mandatory, but it does improve it.

                                  1. Thou Shalt not Double Dip.   I agree with Ann.
                                  2. Thou Shalt not put Ketchup on a Hot Dog.  Sometimes I do, out of habit, but it really adds nothing.
                                  3. Thou Shalt not put Sugar in Coffee.  A little and love Hazelnut creamer.
                                  4. Thou Shalt not cook a Steak greater than Medium.  I think Medium is just right.  Don't like blood and raw much, but with steak, I'll deal with a little pink.
                                  5. Thou Shallt not Boil Ribs.  Agreed!
                                  6. Thou Shalt not Boil Bratwurst or Hot Dogs.  Grilled is best, IMO.
                                  7. Thou Shalt not use a Microwave for anything other than Popcorn.  Disagree. 
                                  8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad.  I like eggs in my salads.
                                  9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar.  Agreed and extremely anal about this one.  I don't want jelly in my peanut butter or vice verse.
                                  10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar.  Agreed, but nobody follows this rule, so I don't eat pickles out of the jar, unless I just opened it.
                                  11. Thou Shalt never use Miracle Whip on or in anything.  Really don't care.
                                  12. Thou Shalt not put Beans in Chili.  Disagreed, although, being a meat eater, I prefer all meat chili.
                                  13. Thou Shalt not put Steak Sauce on Prime Cut of Steak.   Ehhhh.... I am not a fan of steak sauce, but sometimes I enjoy it.
                                    And my #1`food commandmant?
                                       Put love into into the cooking and care for the food as stated!  I can't stand people leaving dairy based products out.  If it says "refrigerate after opening,"  refrigerate after opening!  The manufacturers should know! 
                                       And anytime something is cooked with love, the feeling created throughout is love and even burnt food cooked with love tastes better than the best fried chicken or steak that has no soul.

                                      I make a buttered herb sauce for my steak with a touch of Dijon and garlic. No to most of the others.
