      I agree with some of your top ten and others.....hmmm.....
      1. Thou Shalt not Double Dip. Of course not!
      2. Thou Shalt not put Ketchup on a Hot Dog. Too late...I do use it and LOVE it on hotdogs.
      3. Thou Shalt not put Sugar in Coffee. So Splenda or the pink stuff is ok then....
      4. Thou Shalt not cook a Steak greater than Medium. Amen!
      5. Thou Shallt not Boil Ribs. Another Amen!
      6. Thou Shalt not Boil Bratwurst or Hot Dogs. Amen again!
      7. Thou Shalt not use a Microwave for anything other than Popcorn. Well, it softens butter really well, and it's good for a few other things too.
      8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad. Oh come on....why not???
      9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar. Agreed.
      10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar. Of course I won't.

        1. What's double dip?
        2. I normally don't, but if it somehow ends up on a hot dog I'm about to eat, it ain't the end of the world.
        3. Agree
        4. Thou shalt not cook a steak greater than blood rare.
        5. Agree
        6. Agree. Grill or pan fry in bacon grease or simmer in beer.
        7. Never buy microwave popcorn. It's horrible. Do it in oil the old way. The microwave is great for heating up Beefaroni.
        8. Thou better put hard boiled egg whites (only, no yolk) in tuna and potato salad.
        9. Agree
        10. Agree

          Thou shalt not set down rules for people until after visiting with a burning bush on Mount Horeb and then leading your people out of Egypt.

              Except for #8 I agree with you. I'm from the South and in the South we put eggs in our tuna salad AND in our potato salad. And mighty good it is, too!

              (I'm glad to know that one should not boil brats. As I've never eaten one, I didn't know how they were prepared. Grilled? Steamed? Pan fried?)

                    1. Thou shalt not double dip. Agreed
                    2. Thou shalt not put Ketchup on a hot dog. Agreed. Mustard is ok though!
                    3. Thou shalt not put sugar in coffee. Sorry, I like mine sweet with cream too.
                    4. Thou shalt not cook a steak past medium. Amen!!
                    5. Thou shalt not boil ribs. Agreed. In an oven at 200 degrees for 3 hours.
                    6. Thou shalt not boil Brats or hot Dogs. Agreed. Simmered in beer is the way to go.
                    7. Thou shalt not cook anything in the microwave except popcorn. Agreed. Good for re-heating though.
                    8. Thou shalt not put eggs in tuna or potato salad. Sorry, I have to disagree with this one! I put them in both
                    9. Thou shalt not put the peanut butter knife in the jelly jar. Unless you lick it off first.

                      You simmer them in beer until they are almost done, then you finish them on the grill. YUM.


                      1. I agree. Take the spoon & put some dip on your own plate, then you can do whatever you want with that. To bite off something then put it back in the dip is just...ewwwwww.
                      2. Agreed. Ketchup is for fries.
                      3. Agreed. Just milk in mine. Milk has natural sugars. :)
                      4. Agreed. Medium rare, mmmmm.
                      5. I do not eat ribs. So do whatever you want to them.
                      6. Brats = beer bath. Otherwise, I agree.
                      7. Disagree. I like it airpopped. Also I like to make veggies in the mic.
                      8. I can take it or leave it.
                      9. Oh absolutely!!!
                      10. Agreed.

                          #1 I don't use snuff, so I don't double dip.
                          #2, 3 & 8 I do not agree

                            Nothing bothers my mom more than the double dip. She raised her kids to never double dip.

                            As for sugar in the coffee, I never use sugar...I use Splenda or Equal.

                            Eggs are great in Potato Salad but bad in Tuna Salad.

                                    1. Thou Shalt not Double Dip. Unless it's on your own plate

                                    2. Thou Shalt not put Ketchup on a Hot Dog. I will if I want to and YOU CAN'T STOP ME!!!!! Better yet, I like Mayo on hot dogs as well!

                                    3. Thou Shalt not put Sugar in Coffee. See #2 Above, even more so (Sugar and cream yum!)

                                    4. Thou Shalt not cook a Steak greater than Medium. (Medium RARE!)

                                    5. Thou Shallt not Boil Ribs. (Unless you'd like to eat them today...

                                    6. Thou Shalt not Boil Bratwurst or Hot Dogs. You can if you then crisp the casings afterwards

                                    7. Thou Shalt not use a Microwave for anything other than Popcorn. Boy, do you live in the STONE AGE

                                    8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad. I'm allergic, so I don't put them in anything, but to each his/her own

                                    9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar. Without wiping it off completely first

                                    10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar. Unless they're frshly washed.

                                    11. Thou shalt not condemn anyone's taste in foodstuff/preparation methods because variety is the spice of life! If you don't like it, don't eat it and keep yo' mouf shut towards dem dat do like it. Who knows, you might find something wonderful

                                    BTW, what's wrong with Ranch dressing on pizza bones? Or more pizza sauce, or cheese dip? It's only bread after all???

                                          1. Thou Shalt not Double Dip. Agreed.
                                          2. Thou Shalt not put Ketchup on a Hot Dog. Nope. Do it all the time.
                                          3. Thou Shalt not put Sugar in Coffee. Nope. Do it all the time.
                                          4. Thou Shalt not cook a Steak greater than Medium. Agree.
                                          5. Thou Shallt not Boil Ribs. Oh my goodness yes hallelujah agree.
                                          6. Thou Shalt not Boil Bratwurst or Hot Dogs. Agree.
                                          7. Thou Shalt not use a Microwave for anything other than Popcorn. Strongly disagree; check out the guide to microwaving certain vegetables in Barbara Kafka's book "Vegetable Love." Asparagus is actually better nuked.
                                          8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad. Nope. Do it all the time.
                                          9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar. Agreed.
                                          10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar. Agreed. When I'm not alone.

                                            1. Thou Shalt not Double Dip. Agree.
                                            2. Thou Shalt not put Ketchup on a Hot Dog. Not in my world.
                                            3. Thou Shalt not put Sugar in Coffee. Don't mind if YOU do, but I don't.
                                            4. Thou Shalt not cook a Steak greater than Medium. Agree.
                                            5. Thou Shalt not Boil Ribs. Wouldn't even consider it!
                                            6. Thou Shalt not Boil Bratwurst or Hot Dogs. Hate it too, but understand why busy moms might do it...
                                            7. Thou Shalt not use a Microwave for anything other than Popcorn. Totally disagree... soften butter for cooking, use less dishes, etc...
                                            8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad. True for me for tuna, not so much for potato salad.
                                            9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar. Oops.
                                            10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar. Fuggeddit...

                                              Good list. I'm with you on all except #7.

                                              Leftover pizza (actually anything leftover) was made for the microwave.

                                              Oatmeal (the real stuff, not that instant crap) is possible at the office with the MW.

                                              And popcorn should be cooked the old fashioned way (with real butter melted in the microwave). Better results and none of those nasty microwave fake-flavor chemicals.

                                                Sizz, darling, what planet are you living on?!
                                                While I won't comment on your more incitant remarks (yikes!!!) I will say that, being a foodie, and having lived for 6 yrs total in Jolly Olde, I can say there is PLENTY of great food over there, so it's your loss to be that closed-minded that you won't try it... and that's fine 'cuz then more of it is left for the rest of us to enjoy!

                                                BTW I do agree with #20, although I only make use of one piece of it.

                                                  Sizz, darling, what planet are you living on?!
                                                  While I won't comment on your more incitant remarks (yikes!!!) I will say that, being a foodie, and having lived for 6 yrs total in Jolly Olde, I can say there is PLENTY of great food over there, so it's your loss to be that closed-minded that you won't try it... and that's fine 'cuz then more of it is left for the rest of us to enjoy!

                                                  BTW I do agree with #20, although I only make use of one piece of it.



                                                  I really miss In-N-Out...best chain ever...Russ

                                                          Here are some different ones...

                                                          1) Thou shalt always be thankful for food served graciously, regardless of how it tastes.
                                                          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.
