Sandwich Night!!!!

So they are re-running episodes from season 1 of Heroes.
We haven't seen Angie is ages since she's been in the north woods encouraging her broken collar bone to just heal faster damn it!
Kate's last day at the museum is next Tuesday.
Why not celebrate with a sandwich and a little boob tube viewing?
I have chosen from the list--Eggplant Parmesan!
Why? Why not? I love eggplant. And I just bought a bunch at the farmer's market. And we just canned about a bazillion tomatoes. Sounds like a no-brainer to me.
Monday, August 20. Wanna come?

All Hail Mustard!

I got a chance to visit the Mustard Museum in Mt.Horeb, Wisconsin the weekend before last. This place is a trip. There are thousands of jars of prepared mustard from all over the world, plus jars and tins of dry mustard. There are hundreds of mustard serving bowls and spoons. There is a French's Mustard mascot costume (it's a giant mustard container, of course). And then there is the artwork. Check out this fantastic French's Mustard magazine ad depicting all of the sandwiches you can make with their mustard!

Check out some of those combos: "Southern Ham" contains deviled ham, sweet pickles, mustard-mayonnaise and peanut butter? Hmm....I think I'll reserve judgement.
The other half of the Mustard Museum is a giant store selling hundreds of mustards, hot sauces, salty snacks and "Poupon U" t-shirts.
My friend Amy (different from the Heroes finale Amy--half of my friends are named Amy) and I spent a good amount of time browsing mustards. Then we found out you could sample any of the mustards before you buy them. Well, that was a fun activity! Some were great, some not so great. I ended up buying Apricot Ginger Mustard, Walnut Dijon, and Country Garlic Mustard.
Amy went nuts and bought half the store, including Chocolate Merlot Mustard (fantastic on pretzels) and Chili Dog Mustard (which would be good on chili dogs, I guess?)
We spent the drive home sampling mustards with pretzels and then I had the brilliant idea (bear with me here) of combining the Apricot Ginger Mustard with chunky peanut butter on a flour tortilla. It was incredible! My new favorite sandwich! It's good on wheat bread, too.
So I guess I had better try the Southern Ham, huh?

It's been a surreal week here in Sandwich Land. Beth had a close call, driving over the 35W bridge moments before it collapsed. She actually saw the huge cloud of dust from her rear view mirror. We're both okay, just shaken a bit.

So, please be patient while I prepare the next post about my trip to the mustard museum last weekend. I promise it will be worth it.
