beef frank

Gourmet Gary Dog? Two Vienna Jumbo Beef Franks with stone ground mustard and cheddar, homemade apple sauce, and cheddar sunchips - all accompanied by a can of cider. @copperbadge

Eta: Oh wait, I feel dumb. I bought the friend onions and forgot to take a picture with them on the hotdog.

Cabbage leaves (St. Patrick’s Day 2012?) are so versatile and so are Hebrew National beef franks. I refuse to eat them because of the garlic powder or whatever it is in them that turns me off. Here I am, a shill for Kosher dogs that are not that great. In fact, wasn’t there a controversy about their Kosher authenticity a while back?

I can’t believe this. The one time I put cash in my pocket til I get to da car n forget to put it in my wallet, I lose it. I’m so disturbed right now. Now imma have to not buy baked beans n beef franks which is prolly worth $10. I’m hurt.

Chili Dog Soup - I Breathe, I’m Hungry

Limey says: There’s something to be said for comfort food, and this soup recipe from I breathe, I’m hungry is certainly comfort food. It’s also a low carb and gluten free recipe, but neither FoFacy or I are doing that, so our version didn’t have those concerns. The difference mostly manifests itself in using regular ketchup rather than the low sugar variety. Mostly because that’s what we had in the fridge. I guess this is probably still gluten free though.

The other change we made was using 85% ground turkey rather than 90% ground beef, simply because we had a whole lot of ground turkey in our freezer. This probably lightened the calorie load a little bit, though as you can see in the picture, FoFacy made up for that by adding extra cheese and ketchup to her portion.

This smelled and tasted like a state fair chili dog, and that’s exactly what I wanted.

FoFacy says: What can I say, I like my chili dogs with cheese, mustard, and ketchup. This was fairly good, though an afterthought I had was cutting the hot dog on the bias so it looked less like beanie weenies. But that’s just an aesthetic observation. Hope to have this again soon so we can use the remainder of the hot dogs in the package (oh my gosh, Limey, stop halving recipes; that is why Tupperware and freezers were invented). ::cough never mind that our freezer is full of my broccoli cheddar chowder cough::

Limey says: if you look carefully, you’ll see that I didn’t actually halve this one.

FoFacy says: We should always be doubling this one then.

Women’s World Cup Final. Created this monstrosity during Mikey and Suzie’s Women’s World Cup Final Party. It consists of two beef franks, one turkey frank, two hamburger patties, two slices of american cheese, spicy brown mustard and ketchup. Not really sure what I was thinking, in fact, by this point I’m sure my good friend Sailor Jerry was making all my important decisions for me.
