How do you "enhance" your take out/fast food to your liking?

When I get spicy broccoli and steamed rice, I always add peanuts to the broccoli.
And while I don't eat much fast food because I don't eat meat, I do have a weakness for McGriddles, egg and cheese, no meat. I take it home, nuke it in the microwave so it gets really hot, then I pour real maple syrup on the inside of each of the pancakes, sandwich it back up and enjoy. :-) I'm sure somebody is totally disgusted right now!
Had a friend who would mix mustard and ketchup together and dip her fries in that. That to me is so gross!
Hot sauce like Cholula is great on fries, combining zing with the vinegar. Of course mayonnaise is preferred if the fries are any good.
I don't eat a lot of ff either it makes me feel like garbage. The one thing I love is pizza of any kind. In the summer when tomatoes are at their peak I will order in a cheese pizza and slice up a tomato s&P it while I wait for the pizza. When I get it, put a few slices on the piece im eating so good.
Sometimes I'll keep a bottle of barbecue sauce in the glove compartment. A cheap value menu cheeseburger or mechanically seperated chicken sandwich tastes a lot better with some Stubbs or Bulls Eye sauce in it.
If I ever have stale fast food fries leftover, I reheat them in a dry pan over medium heat. The fries will exude their own oil so you don't need to add any. Just keep them moving so they don't burn, and toss with a little table salt at the end. They will be almost as good as fresh-fried.
Chinese takeout steamed white rice makes really good fried rice because it's drier than the stuff I make at home, so I always order an extra package.
