My go-to flight plan includes: iPod, book, and sometimes a last-minute airport kiosk magazine. I think maybe I have an illegitimate fear of boredom? I’m not sure why I bring so many options. In reality, I’m usually fast asleep doing the “head bob” while we are still on the runway.
On my most recent trip to Minneapolis, I let the boredom anxiety get the better of me and added a crossword puzzle book and six-too-many airport magazines to the mix. One of those magazines was Food Network’s June 2011 issue featuring Hot Dogs.
I wish you all could have seen Jonathan’s face when I presented him with this magazine. I’m pretty sure I saw a single tear of joy roll down his cheek.
As you can understand, we had to have a hot dog party. As in, we provide the dogs, everyone brings their favorite toppings.
It was the perfect way to celebrate the 4th of July, and we also whipped up a batch of homemade Mojitos!
Oh, AND! Food Network Magazine included 50 condiment recipes.
The big wiener (heehee) was Curry Ketchup!
——————————————————————————-1/4 cup diced onions – sauteed in some butter 1 tsp. curry powder 1 tsp. paprika pinch cayenne pepper 1 cup ketchup 1/2 cup water Sautee the onions. Add the seasonings. Mix in ketchup and water. Simmer until desired consistency.
Since we have a Costco pack of hot dogs, we will probably be eating them until the end of time.
Do you have any creative ideas for our leftover processed meat sticks?
How did you do up the 4th this year?
