Hi Mike. Welcome to the boards. Tell us a bit about yourself, won't you?

I sure like how you capitalize Everybody, this seems a very good start. Hurrah for new boardmembers and for Everybody.

Are you really a monster chupacabra?

Luckily, I am not a goat.

I am a Squid.

Greetings!

Not that I think it should have any bearing on this topic, cuz any new conversation around here is a good one, but I'm pretty sure "Mike" isn't a real person, based on the fact that he's signed up for a few hundred message boards, most of which had the same post as was posted here.

Disappointing, I know. Shall we talk about Pastrami?

I let my guard down because it wasn't Shakira-based!

BASTARDS.

ps: having coined "Shakira-based", I am now reminded of one of my favorite Letterman Top 10 Lists:

TOP TEN LEAST-USED HYPHENATED WORDS

10. Lick-proof
9. Owl-flavored
8. Hat-resistant
7. Trunk-ripened
6. Gumbel-scented
5. Post-moistened
4. Hitler-riffic
3. Casket-tested
2. Pants-happy
1. Mookie-proofed

Yes, lets...
It's been a month since "abbreviated HD", and my last appearance at Katz's Deli, I feel empty...
Although it's the Mecca of the pastrami world, I secretly wish they would offer yellow mustard...

Pastrami without yellow mustard?!

I would smuggle in my own, if I had to.

Ew, French's. I'm sorry, but if it ain't spicy, it ain't mustard, in my opinion.

I don't like anything BUT the plain yellow mustard. But I'm not big on sauces, generally speaking. Mustard -- A-OK. Mayo -- good. Ketchup -- meh. Outside of that, I'll refuse to touch it.*



*a few exceptions may apply. IE. Southwest Chipolte!

I can tell you from recent experience, one place mustard DOES NOT belong is in BEER.

A friend of mine ordered this at Belgian beer house. It tastes like sourkraut water. blech.

some notes:
    Sour, do you have pastrami up there, or "smoked meat"?

    only in my advancing age have I learned to like mustard, but I generally prefer the non-yellow stuff. Dianna, are you saying that Yellow Mustard doesn't cut... itself?

    My age will most likely never advance to the point that I like mayo. I am okay with that.

    That beer sounds truly foul.

I'm glad mr. goatsucker could get us talking; hopefully he isn't selling our email addresses to a Shakira clearing house.

Yes, we do have Pastrami/smoked meat, and just about any other meat you do. Except Canadian Bacon, which we have and call something altogether different, I believe. And I love, love, LOVE that mustard pun. Thank you so much; you've made my night! :)

sorry, I meant do you usually buy Pastrami, or is it Smoked Meat that you buy? There is apparently a difference based on much lurking on food message boards.

Next Canada question: can you buy a gallon of milk (or it's metric equivalent) in a jug, or are they all in bags? I'm lactose intolerant, so I would never buy such a quantity of milk either way, but I'm curious.

Also, Pastrami is about the best thing in the world.

I've bought both! I don't regularly buy either, but historically speaking, I've had more Pastrami.

You CAN buy milk in a jug -- but they're much harder to come by and usually only in convenience stores. It's much, much more common to get milk in bags. After bags is cartons. Then jugs well behind either.

Amen, sister. Ever tried Mendocino Hot & Sweet?* Or if you have a death wish, you can try this Russian mustard that pretty much damn near burnt my taste buds out of my mouth. And of course, no discussion about mustard would be complete without a mention of some sweet, hot Beaver.**


*I know we've talked about mustards before, but here in the SAH-lon, we're kinda like a retirement home, and at some point we'll all be retelling the same four stories about our summers in the Catskills, so I'll just go over my faves again.

**Mustard double entendre = teh AWESOME.
