Mayo, MW...give me real butter any day!


But not in tuna salad...


You can keep your tuna, Sara. I'll take ham salad, thank you! Made with
Miracle Whip, not the tasteless mayo.

turning this into a real mayo/MW war!



that does work - at summer camp we made spam salad with pickle relish,
MW and yellow mustard. Now I kind of want some!

Sounds similar to a sandwich I make that uses the above except with a
can of corned beef in place of the Spam. Put some on on a bun, butter
the outsides (top & bottom), put on a hot waffle iron and squash and
heat until the bun is toasty & filling is hot. Yummmmmmmm!

If worries can cure your sickness, prolong your life, or replace
happiness, then go ahead and worry! If they can't, why worry?

Enjoy every moment of your life...there is no second chance.

Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was

of the condiment scheduled for delivery on May 5th in Vera Cruz, Mexico,
which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop
in New York.

This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever
delivered to Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to
New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.

The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise and were eagerly
awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was
so great that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they
still observe to this day.

The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known,
of course, as Sinko De Mayo.

And now you know where the name originated!




DD volunteers weekly at the SPCA, and since Cinco de Mayo fell on a
Sunday she was there to celebrate Cinco de Gato....all rescue cats only
a $5 adoption fee. I thought that was pretty clever!

Changing the subject - rather, following up on the second line of
inquirty - lately I hear raves about Duke's mayo....opinions? I've never
tried it - we don't use much mayo at our house, and we've switched to
the olive-oil based kind. But dang, Duke's is expensive compared to
store brand!

sue


I have simple tastes and prefer 'Blue Plate' mayonnaise over Kraft, Helmans or
store brand. I grew up being fed Miracle Whip in place of mayonnaise. Once
discovering that Miracle Whip was not mayonnaise I did a taste test of the
brands available in my local grocery. Now I really dislike Miracle Whip having
finally had real mayonnaise.

I no longer use as much mayo as once I did, having lost interest in the extra
calories. Yet summer is coming so it is time to begin making egg salads for
cool lunch on hot days.

I've gone to cream cheese and sour cream for my devilled eggs. Still
put mayo in my sandwich salads -- I think. It's been a while since I
made one.

One of these years I'm going to try the recipe for "cooked dressing"
in an old home-ec book I found. I remember Mom making boiled
dressing, but don't remember eating it. The book suggests it for all
the uses we now make of mayo, and treats it as a fundamental recipe --
white sauce and cornstarch pudding had taken over that role by the
time I took home ec.

For a truly awful taste try Heinz "Salad Cream" - reminiscent of the
home-made "mayonnaise" served at my old school (1955-59), utterly
revolting and with a thin layer of vinegar on top.

Duke's is made by the same company as Hellman's. For the life of me,
I cannot tell the difference. I buy whichever is cheaper......


a little late to the party.... just got a new computer and I am still
fooling with the settings and catching up on newgroups...

but anyway I think Duke's has more of an 'oil' taste while Hellman's
has more of an 'egg' taste. (I ofter just taste it straight out of
the jar)
