General chatter - Hot Dog Love

View Full Version : Hot Dog Love

We are having our annual shuffleboard tournament tomorrow evening. Due to our work schedule we didn't know if we would be working or not so the family was put on "hold"...

Work is off for tomorrow so the tourney is on...but at this late notice Angie and I decided hot dogs would be the best bet for the 30 or so that will be here and the easiest for those to bring side dishes.

We have plenty of ideas on what to load the dogs with...but

What do you put on your hot dog?


What are your favorite side dishes?

Always looking for a new twist :)

I don't eat hot dogs but my boyfriend does and he only puts ketchup and mustard. He is pretty boring :o ;)

As for sides, I use to love potato salad and baked beans but I haven't had either in forever.

Hot dog - mustard, picalilly, tomato wedges, thin sliced cucumbers, celery salt and I pass the sport peppers to the guy behind me

Side dishes - chilled fruit salad or grilled fruit kabobs, pasta salad with peas and a bit of onion and baked chips if you have enough calories to spare.

Nothing goes better with hot dogs than beer, especially an ice cold root beer.

Have fun at the tournament!

Although I don't eat hot dogs anymore, I'll share how I used to eat them. I like relish, brown mustard, grilled onions and ketchup. I also like chili and cheese. And sauerkraut on occasion.

As far as side dishes, I like spicy french fries, potato chips, beans and potato salad.

sauteed onions and peppers are my toppings of choice, but in a pinch, chopped onions, spicy mustard and catsup.

This, only I load up the peppers too! On a soy hot dog, but still yummy!

DH puts grilled onions and shrooms and spicy mustard on his National Hebrew reduced fat hot dogs.

As for sides, nothing - I repeat NOTHING - beats ramen slaw and fruit kabobs for us!

mashed avocado!!! mmmm. but i'd put that on anything. :)

mayo and ketchup and onions- sauteed if i'm not lazy. sounds like a win to me.

as for sides- fresh veggies grilled is yummy - zucchini and squash especially. I'm making some green beans with mushrooms with bacon for a side to our bbq this weekend.

I went to the store and loaded up after my walk this morning.

Going to be a little of everything! I got turkey ~ low fat ~ high fat ~ long and short hot dogs ~ wieners

It is our monthly family get together today with the annual shuffleboard tournament....everybody wants to win the trophy Angie picked up last year at the thrift store...the one she glued the "jewels" on :D

I hope your day is fun!

Here are some pictures, of the coveted Shuffleboard trophy, taken last year. My sister and brother in law have it at their place now....beautifying their mantel :).....nephew and his friend won last year but Angie and I were able to keep it here when he entered the of the benefits of raising him...THE TROPHY...jewels and all ;)

I'd play for that. It's cute in a funky kinda way. Reminds me very much of the jewel toned metal drinking glasses my grandma used to have. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Happy2bme...

Angie bought the trophy at the thrift store...then glued the jewels on it. Each year, the winner was supposed to "add" something to it. Since nephew won it then was off to the NAVY last year, it sat in our bookcase w/o being "added" to. My sister will add to it for next year.

We have a "door prize" at church. At our progressive dinner each year at Christmas someone wins it....originally it was just a door...a very small door, made by one of our guys that does cabinets...about 1.5 feet by 2 feet....anyway over the years a doorknob....doorbell...paint...peephole...etc was added to it. We our on ...I dunno...5th door right now!
