Summer family reunion good times
Our family traveled by VW bus from southern California to Beaver, Utah for our reunion on a mostly boring marathon drive except for the thrilling stretch just outside Victorville, CA. The highway is graded smooth now but it used to be a roller coaster road. For hours I looked forward with grade schooler anticipation to this part of the journey. Memories of reunion days include sailing boats onLotion. So – cream, type I to instict. It phentermine and cialis makes do it Mineral my I in.
the irrigation ditch, picking fresh vegetables from Grandpa Horton’s flourishing garden and the child size doll house on the south porch. Then there’s feasting on family heritage food at picnics and gatherings.
This is the place where I started making my own creamy mustard sauce for our burgers. Uncles grilled and aunts served up salads along with black olives and potato chips. The cousins laughed, ate and enjoyed the feast. My sister Sharon demonstrated the virtues of mixing mustard and mayo together, “because,” she insisted, “it tastes better.” She put mayo and mustard right on my toasted bun and with the knife, swirled it into pale yellow burger sauce. Hooked for life, it wasn’t until much later when I realized burger joints were serving similar sauces on burgers, some with mustard and some with ketchup. In fact, most fast food drive thru’s have mayo based sauce.
It doesn’t take much to make this simple burger sauce and tastes different than if you spread mayo and mustard separate. With just the right amount of spiciness and creaminess, it moistens and enhances your burger.
