Did You Ever Just Need A Hot Dog Binge?

Baby Boomers Unite: It's Time To Bring Back Hot Dogs In Our Diets 

I know a lot about hot dogs. I grew up in New York, and ate my share of hot dogs on the streets of New York. Our family also spent plenty of time at Nathan's and indulged in a variety of hot dog adventures throughout my childhood. My dad even sold hot dog in many of his coffee shops, shopping mall kiosks and restaurants. So frankfur
ters are in my genes. So is saurkraut, mustard and Heinz baked beans. But my generation (baby boomers) have been brainwashed to stay away from hot dogs, high in all the bad stuff which we are told will come back to haunt us. But every now and then one gets a crave for a hot dog. My binge came after Thanksgiving. I finished the last dog in the package a few minute ago...... I don't even feel guilty...I feel fabulous!

  1. Hotdogs have always been a part of my mom's diet and since it was a part of hers it was a part of mine. She will eat whatever cheap ones she can get but I like the more expensive beef ones. We don't eat them every day or even every week but they are always in the fridge for when the craving hits and we want something quick.
