I don't recall any prior mustard talk, either. Are you sure it wasn't a dream? Once in a while I have a dream that is so ho-hum and banal that I'll remember it later, and have a hard time figuring out if it really happened. Of course, now I'm destined to dream of posting to the board; if anything really exciting happens, I'll be sure to let you all know.

So yeah... last week down at the farmer's market, some peoples had a homemade mustard stand. Had pretzel sticks and all kinds o free samples. Being the moran I am, I went right to the far side one that was called something to the effect of "Seriously man, this is too hot for you. You will not enjoy it, your tonsels will alight, and you will cry in front of the 13 year-old-kid playing the violin on the corner"

Never was mustard so true.

A quick board search shows that mustard is brought up many times, in various completely un-related threads -- but never has a thorough discussion been dedicated to mustard.

Unless the thread was deleted for being too heated.

Yes, see, I think that was my fear - that I've mentioned all these wondrous mustards on previous occasions. I just don't want to belabor any mustarding points.

For the record, my current favorite mustard vehicle is the bacon-wrapped hot dog. mmmm.....

Hot dogs here come in baguettes with cheese on top.

And you don't get milk in jugs here either as far as I've seen, usually in cartons or small plastic bottles.

What about a Bacon Burger Dog? Never had (or seen) one, but Theo Huxtable loved them.

The bacon-wrapped hotdog! AKA the Sonoran Hot Dog. Not kidding!

It is, in fact, the specialty of the restaurant El Guero Canelo....which might sound familiar if you like the band Calexico. (Jump. Scrape. Break. The Switches. Coast. Low. With. The Bitches....)

Here's what wikipedia says in an entry entitled "Hot-Dog Variations":

The Sonoran hot dog, found in Tucson, Metro Phoenix, and in neighboring Sonora, Mexico, is a hot dog grilled over an open flame or on a griddle, wrapped in Mesquite-smoked bacon, topped with freshly-chopped tomatoes, onions, shredded yellow or cotijo cheese, tomatillo salsa or red chile sauce, pinto beans, mayonnaise, ketchup and/or mustard, and served on a bolillo roll. Often served with a fresh-roasted chile.

People always made those for the superbowl, but since I don't eat meat and mayonnaise is disgusting, this is pretty much my anti-food, but I can see how some might be charmed. :)

Oh, how weird! My elementary school had a program in place where the individual milk portions were in bags (which I always thought was creepy), but I didn't know there were places that did it full-scale!

To drink the milk you had to treat it like a Capri-Sun. Squeeze the pouch and then stab it with your straw. Sometimes it didn't work out too well... =/

I don't quite share your stance on meat, but I stand with you in solidarity against the tyranny of Mayonnaise.

I've found recently that a surprising number of people hate mayo, which is sort of odd to me. Why all the hate, guys?

It's largely a texture thing for me, though the "taste" doesn't do much for me either. I can eat just fine without food grade lubricant fouling things up.

welcome to the netherlands, home of mayo with fries.
forget mustard. mayo!!

we don't have milk in bags though (and thank you Ica for getting that cleared up), mostly cartons - sometimes plastic bottles or jugs but for pasteurized milk only

this topic has been dazzling, but whats been puzzling me mostly is why anyone would post a message to a gazillion boards if it wasn't for spam reasons. Which I don't see with monsterchupacabra's opening statement nor in his/her profile, unless one of the other moderators took out a link without deleting the message.

my thought is that some message boards will let you see people's contact information (email, IM, etc.) once you log in, and some boards require you to prove that you're a real person (by posting) before you can get access. My general thought is that it *is* related to spam, in some way.
