You know when you look at your kids and see not only their differences but their similarities both to each other and to yourself? I look at Maggie and Charlie and there are so many differences between them. Maggie has her favorite foods and doesn’t want anything else. Charlie is the exact opposite. He may have his favorites but he is willing to try just about anything.
I know I should hate grocery shopping at Walmart with three kids in tow, and sometimes I do, but most of the time, it is fun to see what they want me to buy. We always end up with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables as well as a few other things. One thing we absolutely cannot seem to keep in our house are the State Fair® Corn Dogs. I’m not entirely sure who loves them more, the kids or John. We end up getting a box at least every other time we are at the store. If we have them, Charlie begs for them every day and John likes to have a few when he gets home from work late.
The last time we were at Walmart and went through the frozen aisle to pick up more State Fair® Corn Dogs I noticed the specially marked packages. Buy ANY TWO (2) specially marked packages of Tyson® Chicken Products or State Fair® Corn Dogs and you can receive up to $9.00 toward one child admission to see The Peanuts Movie Only in Theaters. Since I know the kids love chicken nuggets or chicken strips, I knew they would love the Tyson® Chicken Nuggets with their fun dino shapes. They got food they love, I get to feel good about their protein powered snacking. You know you can’t wait to see it so check out the trailer now.
While Maggie is content to eat just a plain corn dog or chicken dinos, Charlie isn’t. I bet you are thinking he loves to use ketchup, but you would be wrong. He loves mustard just like his mommy. I think we have gone through more bottles of mustard in the last year than I have in my entire life. I figured it was high time that I discover how to make my own mustard so I would know exactly what is in it. Charlie is also my little cook in the kitchen so he even helped me to make it. It was surprisingly simple and smelled so good that I couldn’t wait to taste it.
Homemade Mustard Recipe
- Small container of mustard seeds. Roughly 1.8 oz
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, regular vinegar or white wine vinegar
- 3 teaspoons lemon juice
- 4 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
- Add mustard seeds, water and vinegar to a jar, seal it and refrigerate over night.
- Add all ingredients to a blender until you reach the consistency you want. I let Charlie decide when he thought it was smooth enough.
You can add more or less honey and spices to get the flavor you want. Seal in jar and refrigerate for up to one month. This recipe makes approximately 1 cup.
Charlie is in heaven because now it isn’t a big deal if we run out of mustard. He can clearly see when we need to make more and helps me get it ready. He is loving being able to make one of his favorite things to go along with one of his favorite snacks.
