… get it? ketchup tomorrow- haha
what does this have to do with today’s blogging post you ask? well my friends a lot.
1. this week’s meal is hotdogs. already know how to cook hotdogs? yea me too, but here’s the thing i had never done which did make it a valid weekly meal- i had never ever used a barbecue before. seriously. my dad thoroughly enjoyed bbqing while growing up, so did my mom, brother, and now matt. i’ve never really had a reason to learn how when there were so many other people around who wanted to do it. so when we decided last sunday that we would bbq some hotdogs on what could be the last good weather barbecuing day of the year, i wanted to do it.
2. for those of you who have had the fortunate experience of growing up with me, you should know that i really really really like relish. so much that last year while at costco, i purchased a GINORMOUS container of relish. you know what i mean the kind that really only a restaurant or hotdog vendor would need. not really sure what came over me, but the running joke over the last year was that we should give out relish as our favours at the wedding. haha. hilarious. fyi- we are half way through the container. so there. i’m predicting a full finish next summer.
3. i just thought the comment was funny. and guess where i came up with it? i actually googled “sayings about hotdogs” in hopes to find a catchy title for this post. did you know there is actually a company that specializes in hotdog paraphernalia. you could purchase a mouse pad, t-shirt, pin, shoes, mug or apron if your heart so desires.
alright, back to the experience. first, i almost set matt’s eye brows on fire- i didn’t realize that you really needed to be quick lighting the barbecue, once you’ve turned on the gas switch. from there it was pretty uneventful. the hotdogs weren’t frozen, so they were ready in no time. i did end up using silver salad tongs because we couldn’t find our normal bbq tongs, and they ended up kind of ripping the hotdogs a bit. other than that it was fine 🙂 yay hot dogs! yay bbqs!
Since it was such an “easy” “meal” i’ll see if i can make/post something else little this week to add to it like a dessert i’ve never done….
mmmm dessert. ohhhhhhhhhh how about a pumpkin dessert of some kind in honour of halloween?!?! yeaaaaa!
tune in tomorrow- same bat time, same bat channel.
PS our camera died this weekend, and i can’t find our usb cord…so none of our own pictures for now 😦
