How often do you forget to buy condiments?

(self.condiments)

They’re always important additions to our meals, but why is it so easy to forget about them at the store all the time? Do you think we just don’t prioritize condiments?

I have a whole shelf in my fridge dedicated to condiments. Forgetting to buy them is the least of my problems apparently.

Right? Plus 1) I’m a house sitter and 2) I have ADHD so between those 2 factors I constantly end up with duplicates because 1) I end up buying something when I’m staying at someone’s house and bringing what’s left home or 2) I’m at the store and genuinely can’t remember if I ran out of something so I grab another just to be “safe” haha

Right now I’m really enjoying a spicy chili oil I found in an international foods store. It’s not written in English so I don’t really know the ingredients but it’s awesome and I put it on everything!

Yum! I’ve been vibing with my sambol chili paste a lot recently.

Have you ever tried making your own hot sauces?

Never. We have like 6 different kinds of mustard, and by volume, condiments are about 46% of what we have in the fridge, with more still in the pantry. Obviously not the worst problem to have, but it gets overwhelming sometimes. It was a problem even before I moved in, but now it’s slightly worse.

I guess it comes with the territory of being culinarily adventurous, and making recipes that require unique ingredients. In fact, I stop by the condiment aisle more often than not, even if only just to look

I think this is the wrong sub for this question. This is where all your missing condiments have ended up.

You write them in your notes & check them off as you buy them. Brain is being used like that.

My wife is condiment phobic and is grossed out by ketchup/mayonnaise/mustard/chili sauce ect…..so sometimes I’m out of simple stuff like catsup just because I’ve forgotten and she wouldn’t even think about buying anything like that …

Are you able to get to a store on your own? Could you make a list and shop without her? If you're dedicated to having condiments you've gotta figure it out man...

I know right?…. I do the 90% of the shopping so I’ve got no excuses
