I Ran Out Of Mustard

I know, you can hardly fathom why this is a problem, right?

Last summer, our local grocery store ran a promotion where you spend $50 and get a coupon for a free picnic- complete with hot dogs, buns, katsup, amd mustard. Well, if you split your order into $50 chunks, you get that many coupons. You follow? That means that I got at least 16 bottles of mustard last summer. One bottle of mustard is not needed for each pack of hot dogs. I had mustard for a long time. Sadly, I don't anymore. My hamburger was kind of plain at dinner time....

Dang, maybe they will run the promotion again this year.

worse than running out of mustard is the thought of eating hotdogs 16times in a summer. YUK!

I don't think I've eaten 16 hotdogs in the last 16 years. blech.

sorry about the mustard. I hope you survive.

Oh that's too funny! Those promotions are amazing--if you have the storage space. :)

I know the feeling....I ran out of ketchup the other night. And I keep forgetting to buy more!

I can't imagine going through 16 bottles of mustard in a year. We might go through 2. Maybe.

Sissy said...

Wow. Our mustard tends to expire before we use the whole bottle. Our trend is to go to the fridge and look for mustard only to see that the expiration date is two months past. 16 bottles in one year?! Wow.

This has nothing to do with this post but I saw your comment about the Giver and Jonas doesn't die. I wrote you an email.

Best title of a post ever.

I love mustard. Especially on Hardees or Chick-fil-a chicken biscuits. Yum.

(I'm so random, huh?)

I'm a mustard nut! Gotta have in on my sandwiches, hotdogs and hamburgers. None of them taste right w/o it.
