Happy Memorial Day Weekend Everyone!
Interesting Mustard Facts!
Americans use more mustard then any other place in the world and is the preferred condiment of choice at family picnics!
The saying, “cut the mustard,” means to live up to a challenge.... so hopefully we all will be having a good time this weekend with family and friends,cutting the mustard by consuming lots of mustard this weekend, as well as cutting the rug on that dance floor too!
