day 29: stone ground mustard, homemade!

There is nothing like running out of a beloved condiment in the midst of making a masterpiece sandwich, when it’s blaring cold outside and you have lost all motivation to drive anywhere for any reason. Arrrgh! What on earth is one to do? The way I see it … you have one of 3 options. Option A) get over it and go to the store; B) do without; C) make your own damned mustard.

We’re going to explore option C. Now, I realize that this may simply be silly to some of you. But, you don’t understand the depths of creation behind this sandwich. I need my mustard and I need it NOW. Here goes!
