Did You Know?


When my kids were little, and probably even now, they loved to learn some weird bit of trivia. Well today I learned a weird bit of trivia. Did you know that Canada produces 95%of the worlds mustard seeds? I was so amazed by this I had to go over and taste this fabulous home grown product. I do love mustard anyway. With Easter approaching, I know this will be the one time of year that I will be buying Kielbasa and you know you have to have mustard for that. So I indulged. Well you must know that, that ten pound challenge is still in the works, we did not do well at the One-of-a-kind. They seem to have all these tasty treats to sample. Chocolate covered blueberries, toffee to die for, the mustard itself was a smorgasbord, and this is all just on the way back to Carmi's booth. I've now attended this show for at least 25years, and am always amazed at the talent, what people don't think of. Recycling was especially evident to me in the clothing designs. You go young designers! More on the show tomorrow, when I unpack my bags and remember what wonders I saw. P.S. it is very hard to scan a jar.
