A love letter to my new favorite condiment…

Muy delicioso!

Oh mayonnaise, my saucy lover, I don’t really know why I’ve become so obsessed with you.  You just go so well with…everything.  Especially the ever-present easy vegetarian snack of “papas fritas.”  Thick, soft, salty french fries in need of only some sort of dipping sauce to make them perfect. I’ve never been a fan of ketchup and mustard is just too much.  So I turn to you, mayonnaise, the obvious leader of the Peruvian triumvirate of sauces.  Maybe it’s the fact that you’re the best possible substitute for Ranch dressing, that lovely Midwestern flavor which I miss so much.  Maybe it’s the fact that here you are never low-fat or fat-free, thus making you much more tasty then the mayonnaise with which I grew up.  I don’t even care that you never seem to live in the refrigerator; I’ll risk some stomach troubles for a taste of your tangy deliciousness!  I can’t believe it took coming to Perú to really discover you!  Oh my luscious mayonnaise, only you can make healthy food fattier and bland food tastier; you just go so well with everything!  You truly are, the sauce of sauce, my love.

Yours forever,


French fries with mayonnaise.  Seriously, try it.  Then somebody get me out of here before I eat my weight in it.


About Carrie

Carrie's got the traveling bug and thinks "settling down" is overrated. Too many people to meet, places to see, and languages to learn!
