Mod Info
Developed and tested with game version 1.67

Mod Description
I got the inspiration from the honey that can be used to sweeten desserts.
I thought that the same concept could be used for other foods too.

This mods is about 3 bottles - ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard - than teen+ Sims can use to spice some foods.
It works clicking on the bottle, which can be either inside or outside the inventory, and choosing a "target" with a
nested pie menu. Valid targets are both group servings and single dishes. Desserts are excluded (to not conflict
with the honey's sweetening) and snacks aren't compatible with this system (at least not without putting up a fight).

icarus_allsorts made me notice that sometimes spicing a food with ketchup or another sauce
(as well as sweetening it with honey and adding an herb) can lower its quality instead of raising
it. To simplify, this may happens if the original cook was good (cooking perks and efficient chip).
On one hand adding this kind of sauces isn't exactly "haute cuisine" so I'm kinda glad that this can
happen (also because it's good that there aren't only advantages in spicing foods), on the other
hand I'd like that the system makes sense. Bottom line: for the time being I'm just letting you know.

Objects Info
ATM the bottles are simply re-textured clones of the Juice with just a few tweaks.
The price is 20. You'll find the objects in the Buy Catalog:
- by function, appliances, misc
- by room. kitchen, small appliances

If you clone (with renumbering), re-mesh (keep approximatively the same shape), re-texture and rename
(editing the STBL) one of the bottles, you can create other kind of pretend condiments. Just remember
that the name of the object (the one specified in the STBL entry) is used to compose the interaction name.

If you don't like the idea to buy the bottles from the catalog, there are a few options:
