So, this week is going to be survey week! (Actually today and yesterday are survey posts, I’m not sure about the next couple days yet… So, let me rephrase…) Today and yesterday are survey days!

Arman @ The Big Man’s World recently tagged me to do the following Top 5 survey that’s been floating around the HLB universe (blogoverse?). And this made me extremely happy because it’s no secret I love doing surveys 😀

So, lets get on with it, shall we?

Now, I’m supposed to tag 5 more people but, you guys, I CAN’T CHOOSE. If you’d like to do it, please do! It’s really fun. I highly suggest it. For now though, pick a category and tell me your top 5 in the comments!

Also, any tips for getting caesar dressing out of fabric?

Also also, are you a phone person? (I’m more of a text/ gchat/ email person)



So, the inspiration behind today’s post comes from last Friday’s post of one of my favorite bloggers- Sam @ Better with Sprinkles.

Her post included this image of a “Bison burger topped with melty goat cheese, honey mustard and pickles.”

This, you see, is essentially heaven on a bun for me because I am certifiably addicted to honey mustard.

To affectionately misquote Dr Seuss and take his words slightly out of context on the subject of a certain Sam and his coming around toward a certain dish of Green Eggs & Ham:

And I would eat honey mustard in a boat!
And I would eat it with a goat.
And I would eat it in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
It is so good so good you see!

And I would eat it in a box.
And I would eat it with a fox.
And I would eat it in a house.
And I would eat it with a mouse.
And I would eat it here and there.
Say! I will eat it ANYWHERE!

You name it, I probably add honey mustard to it.

I mean, is it any coincidence you can spell all of the following with the letters in “honey mustard”:

“Her ATM-y sound” – As in, ‘cha-ching!’ Aka the sound honey mustard companies hear when I walk in the store.

“Mouth? Darn yes” -As in, do I want honey mustard in my mouth? Darn straight I do.

“Doh! Must yearn” – As in, what I say when I realize I have run out of honey mustard.

Coincidence? I think not.

Do you like honey mustard?

What’s your favorite thing to put it on?

What’s your favorite condiment?
