This is probably one of the biggest debates in my house between my husband and me.  Granted there are worse things we could argue about.  But the house is now divided Team Mayo & Team Miracle Whip.  As the primary grocery shopper, I refuse to even put the stinky gag inducing mayonnaise in the shopping cart.  Even saying or thinking the word...may-oh-nasie sends shivers down my spine.
