I don't use salt and I only use pepper in soup, but not before I've tried it first!

My DH would put salt on salt!! He always said "I salt until it turns white and then pepper until it turns black" Doctor has taken him off of salt and he is suppose to limit water intake to 1 Liter a day. He uses Nu-Salt now.

sorry, couldn't resist another "reminds me of"...

"AutoMom" is the involuntary movement all mothers make when their cars come to a stop at a red light, stop sign, etc. They immediately extend their right arm/hand out to the side to prevent actual or imaginary children in the front passenger seat from mvoing too far forward as the vehicle comes to a stop. I even perform AutoMom on Handy Husband in the (rare) instances when I am driving and he is the passenger.

Back to topic, autocondimentor describes HH very well. He liberally peppers just about everything before he eats it (very proud of himself because he rarely uses salt). Drives me nuts.

Being a turncoat to my species (male) .... they probably like to "see" the black flecks in the food to send "eye-to-brain" confermation that the food is propperly peppered. Try using "white" pepper and see if they notice the difference .....

UGH!
Much worse than watching someone S&P their food is dumping catsup all over and filet or prime rib roast.

Rarely do I put salt on anything. Recently I ordered French fries at a local restaurant and they had over salted them. They were gross!! I could hardly eat them. Pepper goes on lots of foods that I eat but I always taste the food first. The condiment that I probably overuse the most is taco sauce. It put it on everything: tacos, eggs, sloppy joes, chili, burritos, chip-n-chili pie, etc

I stopped using salt years ago, and now when I dine out and salt is used it tastes TOO salty as a result. I will taste the food first, but I do put salt on potatoes (like fries) and eggs, unless I cook them at home. But I usually taste first. At some restaurants I ask for a sauce they make for fry dipping - red robin their bbq/mayo; McMenamins wasabi/mayo. Then salt is not needed. I use a lot of fresh herbs and spices in my cooking and find most of the time salt is not needed.

I once had a terrible thing, some yutz who sat at the table just before me loosed the caps to the salt shaker, and the cap and about 1/4 cup of salt poured onto my eggs. The server nicely replaced my meal.
