Say What? "Oh, it's just snot"

My wife and I were in the kitchen, having battered fish (quick, someone call the cops on me!) and she was stirring up some homemade tartar sauce*. She moved away from the sauce, I saw something fly from her face, and I felt that hit the knuckle of my big toe.

Wife: Where did that go?
Me: I felt something land on my toe (pointed at my foot)
Wife: Where?
Me: Right there, I see something on the ground (it looked like a drop of relish juice)
Wife (talking, not signing, as she bent down to investigate): Oh, it's just snot (she wiped it off with her finger)
Me: Snot? Gross!
Wife: No, haha...I said "ice" (fingerspelled)

* Homemade tartar sauce is surprisingly simple to make - you just need some mayonnaise and either relish or worchester sauce (or even both). Feel free to experiment to find your ideal mixture ratio, and don't hesitate to try spices and herbs.

Yeah that was the most amazing part of the story until you let me in on the secret recipe. I'll have to mix some up the next time I have fish & chips.

Copyboy - it's surprisingly simple to make...just add whatever you like to the sauce until you discover your blend. :)

Mynx - you're sick? Aw man! Why don't you bake 10 oz fish at 400 degrees for 10 minutes and make your own tartar sauce? You'll feel better with a simple, easy, and tasty dinner.

Kid Shuffle - welcome to my blog. Why don't you make it and experiment a little? See how it works out for you...and have a meal that requires it. :)
