Did you know that August 3rd is National Mustard Day? Fitting, since we just had National Hot Dog day a couple of weeks ago! And I’m happy to celebrate the ONLY (for me) condiment that goes on a plain hot dog!
You could celebrate by visiting the National Mustard Museum near Madison, WI. This year’s visitors can expect a fun-filled day for the entire family when National Mustard Day 2013 kicks off at 10 a.m. and festivities continue all day until 4 p.m.
National Mustard Day 2013 Activities include:
- Opening ceremonies with Dr. Mustard
- Onsite appearances by the French’s® Mustard Man
- Live music by the Red Hot Horn Dawgs
- Free Hot Dogs (*mustard required)
- Mustard Games that raise money for Restoring Hope Transplant House
- Magic by Wayne the Wizard
- Klements onsite grilling brats
- Oscar Mayer Weinermobile
- FREE Mustard sampling

One of the reasons I highlighted their Mac & Cheese recipe is that I’ve always added a touch of mustard to my own Mac & Cheese recipe! It adds that little extra zing. Other family recipes where we use mustard are my daughter’s Potato Salad (people rave for it) and my own Southern Pulled Pork with Gold Sauce. I’ve been using mustard for cooking since I was a kid. I’m pretty sure we could have a full dinner where every dish contains some flavor of French’s mustard!
Enjoy Saturday celebrating the Classic Yellow Mustard that was first introduced in 1904 at the St. Louis World’s Fair!
