How is it possible that I drip, spill, splash or spread mustard all over myself, no matter what? I was just thinking that as I watched a drop of golden deliciousness fall, as if in slow motion, and splatter on my dark denim pants. I swear I get mustard on everything.
The truth is, I love mustard. My love doesn’t end with mustard though. I love sauces and dips in general. What is a sandwich without some kind of condiment? It’s just meat and cheese on some bread. That doesn’t sound good to me. There needs to be that extra somethin’ somethin’ to transform it from something dull to something dangerously good.
