When I was a kid, ketchup was my favorite condiment. I would put it on everything. I avoided mustard, however, at all costs. Back in the "old days" when my mother took me to baseball games at Wrigley Field, hot dogs purchased from the vendor came with mustard on it already. I wasn't happy about this and I made a mess scraping as much mustard off of the hot dog as I could.
These days, my relationship with mustard is different...I love it! Today is National Mustard Day and if I could, I would visit the Mustard Museum in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin.
If you happen to be anywhere near Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin today stop by the museum. For more information, visit www.mustardmuseum.com. Last night, WGN Radio personality Nick Digilio had Mustard Museum curator Barry Levenson on his program. For a limited time, the podcast is available here. It sounds like Culver's will also feature mustard custard as its flavor of the day. Check your location for availability.
If you cannot make it to the Mustard Museum, celebrate National Mustard Day today. Like the old days, I'm going to have an Oscar Mayer hot dog with my favorite yellow mustard, French's. This time around I'm going to put extra mustard on it. Enjoy the day and the weekend!
How about you, what's your favorite mustard?
