The Memorial Day weekend marks the official start of the hot dog season chez The Wizard. I will serve them every so often during the next few months. After Labor Day, they will be gone. For me, hot dogs are strictly a summer food.
Hebrew National, the brand that “answers to a higher authority,” is the only kind I use. I buy the fresh ones cut from strings. The packaged ones suck. This is not just a holdover from the years when I kept kosher at home. I prefer the taste of an all-beef hot dog, and the Hebrew National, with its slightly spicy flavor, is delicious.
M and I spent a quiet holiday weekend at our house. Just the two of us. The weather was gorgeous. We ate al fresco.
