Not much new in the wide world of mustard. I need to crack open some of my bottles of newer mustards and do reviews – will do soon! I’ve got a bunch from a recent road trip that are wacky-looking.
I woke up this morning to find that my brother had texted me this picture he took in Wal-Mart. Thanks, bro!
I absolutely love that I have people now taking photos of mustard in the supermarket LOL! I’d love to get some pictures from you all reading this – this could be the beginning of a weird phenomenon of people who don’t read this blog staring at people all over the world and wondering why they are taking pictures of mustard. I love it.
We had lunch at Fuddrucker’s today, which is always pretty darn delicious. So I had to horrify Schu by getting the mustard going…
I actually would have liked a little more mustard but didn’t feel like going back to the condiments bar. As you can see, I also had some mayonnaise. Now, I hope this won’t offend any purists, but while mustard is by FAR my favorite condiment, I do like some others as well. This was just plain yellow mustard but they had a spicy brown one, too.
They also have a super high-tech soda fountain machine with a touch screen and a million kinds of soda. Schu made himself some atrocious mixture of different flavors of Diet Coke that I didn’t even know existed – raspberry, orange, lemon, vanilla. He claimed it tasted good. I’m not buying it but if you come across one of these magical soda fountains, you, too, can make yourself a crazy kamikaze soda – isn’t that what we called them as kids?
Impressed by a soda machine…I am a simple girl. I just Googled it and apparently these machines are called the Coca-Cola Freestyle and have been around since 2009, so probably many of you are wondering where the heck I’ve been for the past 3 years. To be fair, that’s around the same year I stopped drinking soda for the most part. If you’re clueless or curious like me, here’s an interesting article from the examiner.com about these machines and a video showing how they work. Pretty cool.
Looking forward (for Americans, at least) to a mustard-filled Fourth of July coming up – I’d love to hear from you as to the ways you’ll be incorporating mustard into your holiday, and post some of your pictures of the results!
