Winter Outings – William Rickets Sancturay

Cee is back with another set of questions for this week… Complete this sentence: This sandwich could really use some …mustard, mayonnaise, black pepper? I guess it really does depend on the kind of sandwich, doesn’t it? I mean I would not out any of the above on a peanut butter sandwich. My standard sandwich…
