i like mayo. there. i said it. it's a controversial condiment that sparks either absolute adoration (of which i am an ardent team member) or pure disgust (of which dw feels every and anytime the stuff is around). to be fair, he does not cringe away from foods that might have a slathering of it, like say, banh mi thit but he does clearly state "no mayo" when ordering a simple sandwich.
we don't have the stuff at home. we have all sorts of condiments: a few varieties of mustard, hot sauce, two kinds of fish sauce, even stinky tofu. is that weird? not having mayo, i mean? i thought so. it was a situation that, despite my severe cold over the weekend, and the fact that i wasn't planning on eating sandwiches anytime in the near future, had to be remedied. i recall making homemade mayo when i was younger, back when i still lived at home and the seeds of being a domestic goddess were planted. it was not hard. it is not hard. for this latest attempt i used only organic products, for optimal freshness and safety.
*consuming raw products may be dangerous, please use the freshest/best/organic ingredients possible. i feel compelled to jot that down, in case anyone tries this & ends up with explosive trots, or worse.
