Hot Dogs

Every now and again I get a craving for a hot dog. I know that sounds strange but seriously I do like hot dogs. Now that I think about it, maybe it doesn’t seem so strange after all.  Hot dogs made on the grill are so yummy. A hot dog cooked outside, over an open wood fire even better. I can’t watch a baseball game without eating a hot dog. Remember that old television jiggle, “Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Chevrolet”
