Mayo Baby

I never had full fat mayo until I was married. It's true. My parents didn't believe in full fat condiments. They still don't. They still buy I Can't Believe it's Butter spray. (My brothers and I call it, I Can't Believe this S**T is Butter).

The first time I visited my future in-laws, AJ offered to make me a sandwich. It was the BEST sandwich I had ever had. I couldn't figure out why it was so amazing. It was just a turkey sandwich (on really good bread). Later during the visit I asked for another sandwich. STILL so GOOD!! My last day in CA I finally got around to making my own sandwich and when I looked for the fat-free mayo isn't wasn't there. I asked and AJ pointed me to the mayo with the blue lid. REAL MAYONNAISE. Intrigue. I tried it. This is what made my sandwich so good. A hidden culinary secret?

Seven years later, I am now living with my in-laws. As I have been working on looking the bright side of our new situation many things have come to my mind. A few.....

#3. DISHWASHER. We lived with no dishwasher for the past 3+ years.

#2. One of Crewe's favorite persons lives here. Grandpa. Crewe has been really sick and Grandpa has been great at reading to him and cuddling with him.

#1. Real Mayo. Good Sandwiches here they come!!!

So let me get this straight. You have tried full fat mayo (the only way to go) and yet you don't buy it yourself? Do you continue to buy fat free? Or do you just not buy mayo? I don't buy or use mayo often, except for these pasta salads...Suddenly Salad Ranch and bacon. Yum!

Poor thing you had to have us for parents that buy fat free mayo. But glad that you found one more thing in the plus column

I'm not a huge mayo fan, but when you use it it has to be the real stuff! Now I know why Aar always insists on the real stuff or better yet Miracle Whip!

Grandma always told us, "Everything's better with butter". I think that applies to full fat mayo too. Fat Free. Why bother?
