The Case of the Vanishing Mustard Pot

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

I have a tube of Colman’s

But it’s not been the same since they stopped labelling it “Picnic mustard” :(

I once had a jar of Welsh mustard … it was bright red and extremely hot :shock: Also a honey mustard which was both hot and sweet and delicious. Otherwise my stock of mustard is really only Dijon and English.

Many B&Bs or hotels serving cooked breakfast haven't got mustard as a standard option and this has been a bit of a grumble here for years :D

Sausages, black pudding, ham require some sort of mustard I feel.

My father grew up with mustard made from powder and vinegar, he was disabused of the notion when he joined the navy. We always had Colman's powder at home, I brought shame upon the family by trying French mustards of different types. These days we've always got a pot of powder in the cupboard, plus a jar of something else - wholegrain (sometimes HM), Dijon, Tewkesbury, or something we've seen that took our fancy.

Not great fans of American mustard but we both quite like the mustard relish with gherkins in it.

Mustard was always an invalid choice on Danny Baker's sausage sandwich game, in the days before the host was more controversial than the sandwich.

There was a BB story in which he had a magic tube of toothpaste which could be any flavour he asked it to be. (I guess this sounds less amazing these days when it seems almost anything can be customized...). Bobby Brewster's favourite food was tinned sardines in tomato sauce, so...
He regretted his choice and, I think, had to get through to the end of the tube before he could change it.

I love hot Löwensenf. :D
Mind you, some love it so much they dress up as a tube of it for Karneval.

It's a great costume for street Karneval, but inside one of these heaving pubs ... :shock:

They might turn him upside down and squeeze him?!! :D

Don't start me on inappropriate party costumes :) I have a favourite (as in source of amusement/horror) purveyor of such in Flers, Normandy.They sell one that's essentially a toilet with inflatable toilet bowl attached at the front. Now that's just asking for trouble...

This particular party shop sells supplies for the whole show from start to finish... costumes, (inflatable body parts...), decorations, balloons, table cloths, glasses, paper plates, napkins, plus mops, cloths and cleaning fluids. And, bizarrely, one euro packets of unbranded cigarettes!

If it were not France, they would probably be selling Ibuprofen and Alkaseltzer too.

Gloriously tacky and tasetless (but some nice decorations too, in every possible shade, which is, of course, mainly why I go in :) )
