Any food allergies?

Shellfish, however I do play Russian Roulette and eat a few shrimp or crab cakes on occasion. I’ve only been to the ER twice and that was after eating crabs or seafood salad. I break out real bad and have trouble breathing. So far the only effects from the shrimp or crab cakes has been a swollen bottom lip that went away after a dose of Benadryl.

Go ahead and share your preferences and/or your opinion of my selections.

  1. ketchup should NOT be refrigerated…EVER!!!

  2. Im feeling this GMo, i might hafta jack this from out’chu. LOL….See I can be complex at times, I like my jelly cold if its on a PB and J sandwich, but I want it warm if its going on toast….

  3. THis made me think……i have the steak sauce, the hot sauce on the shelf….my mayo,mustard, in the fridge..i dont use ketchup but if i get condiments i put them on the shelf. I dont care if my water is in the fridge or on the floor. But i prefer Gatorade to Powerade. I also prefer Fiji and Poland SPrings to any other water out there. Minute Maid juices are the bomb!@!!!!
    As for chips i prefer Lays or Lutz(is that right)….but i also like Spicier Nachos by Doritos. BBQ

    Sodas-either COke or Pepsi but I prefer Pepsi and it has to be in a cAN i dont like BOTTLED SOdas…..and if its a fountain soda it has to be DR PEPPER….and i hafta drink it with a STRAW

    Miller Light or a Heineken…NO Corona for me…

    No lactose (dairy) for me, I will get sick as a dog…LOL

  5. I’m with your fiancee and BluJewel – I hate cold ketchup. Cold ketchup on hot food disgusts me. Must be Heinz.

    All condiments (except Strawberry Jelly and Mayonnaise) are on the shelf.

    Butter – Land O Lakes; Mayonnaise – Hellmanns; Hot Dogs – Nathans or Hebrew National
