Day: August 6, 2011
Just a quick post today about this great national holiday. A couple of quick things to point out: 1) I don’t make my own mustard. 2) I don’t really have a recipe that uses mustard (although my dry rub recipe does have some dry mustard). 3) I love mustard, as you can tell from the mustards that I have in my refrigerator, not counting the Blue Cheese Mustard from Stonewall Kitchen that was just polished off the other day. I totally recommend that mustard by the way. But I digress. . . we all probably have some kind of mustard in our kitchen. It’s a part of our everyday lives!!!. . . for the most part. . . maybe.
But back to the holiday. . . if you are somewhere near Madison, WI, you should pop on over to the National Mustard Museum in Middleton and celebrate at the festival. Mustard from everywhere will be there — from Kaua’i, HI to Beaverton, OR to Clearwater, FL. Unfortunately I can’t make it but I did have to order my very own 20th Annual National Mustard Day (NMD) T-shirt! It sounds like a fun time and it looks to be a very well attended event. So go celebrate everything mustard and eat a couple of free hotdogs. Looks like they have some mustard custard to top everything off!
Does anyone have a recipe out there using mustard?
As a side note — today is also National Root Beer Float Day! I am working on a cake to celebrate!
