Pywacket - I do, in fact, hate hot dogs. You could not pay me to eat one. I only answered 2 or 3 when repeatedly pestered and asked how many I thought I could eat if I absolutely had to, for whatever strange reason that would be.

sister, we had the poor man's version...weenie wrapped in a canned biscuit. No cheese, no crescent. Still yummy! (then again, me and MY sister would go steal weenies out of the freezer and eat them when our mom was on the phone. Listeria popcicles! Had to love those short phone cords! Why did they ever do away with those?

Crescent Dogs - gourmet food from my childhood. The recipe is simple. Slice your dogs lengthwise, 1/2 deep. Shove velveeta into the openings. Wrap dogs in crescent rolls. Bake. Serve with ketchup. Highly processed and nutritionally challenged. Sweet memories . . . ahhhh

No pattern. A few items may have torqued my shorts, and had to be "put down" in the name of "stress relief". But, no pattern.

I love beanie weenies! Let's not have any dissing of them, dishing maybe, but not dissing.

prospector: was that on another article?

Sheesh, posters are dropping like flies the last few days. Someone's done gone and upset David again and he's kicking butt and deleting names.

About 2 is all I can do and that's if I am really hungry.

What luny? Meat envy? It's not so much that vegitarians want their products to look like meat, but that a patty is a handy form to place between slices of bread. "Tubular" (like, man, that was totally radical and so SO-Cal S_S. Yeah! Really bitchin') encasement will hold a variety of things that may not normally stay together. It may be to make them look similar to other foods, but there is a large practical element to it.

Signed, love my beef and pork, but tofu ain't bad when done well in a good recipe

bleu, your "i before e" does not apply to Heidi...and I've just made you French...or French Canadian...or at least from the bayou. Do they eat hotdogs in Creole counrty? I've not seen them on the menu but all this talk "makes me want a hot dog real bad!"

Or how about a dog from a street vendor in NYC? Mmmm, especially with onion sauce.

But in the midwest, ick! (Most of the time.) I will admit to buying Hebrew National or Sabrett's, if I can find them.

Anyone remember Der Wienerschnitzel restaurants? There used to be some in KC. I was visiting in Phoenix a few years ago and ate at one there. But, if I remember correctly, they dropped the "Der". I used to like eating there just because it was a change from the usual burger and fries.

Never had a wiener dog.

I did have a Oscar Meyer/¢ Hot Wheels/¢ or Matchbox/¢ wiener mobile, it met its fate in some form of explosion.

I also had for a short time a Oscar Meyer/¢ wiener whistle, but I lost it. I could have used it to signal "all clear" after the explosion.

You know what I think is odd: Kosher Dogs. Why have a rabbi bless such a rank food-product. I mean I like(d) hot dogs (more as a child than now), I would even eat them right out of the package, but it seems like the Jewish diet could do without them. Of course there are halal hot dogs too.

Anyways, I wish they'd bring back the frankenwiener. I think that is what it was called--with the chili and cheese already inside--mm, mmm--tasty.

I really don't know how many wiener dogs it would take to successfully attack a cow. There may not be many countries left where you could do that experiment without getting in a lot of trouble. Does the dog track over toward KCK still do the wiener dog races?

My childhood weenie dog was Willie. My grown up ones were Tally, Fatty, Wabash, Son, Willy, and about 20 others that were given away when pups to friends.

Love those weenie dogs.

Explains a lot, doesn't it?

My childhood wiener dog was a black and tan named Heidi (God rest her little doggie soul).

Ms_C, make a big pot of beans with Soyrizo added sometime... muey yummy!

Most folks to not realise that soy-based foods are in reality HIGHLY PROCESSED foofds as raw soybeans are NOT suitable for human consumption!


Marion,

I am trying to picture you and your hamburger rolled in grains of wheat or your taco rolled in corn kernels.

How many wiener dogs would be required to take down a cow?

ms_canada 7 years, 6 months ago

Oh and by the way, not all soy products are made from tofu, some are made with soy textured protein. Soy is rich in protein, and has no cholesterol.

ms_canada 7 years, 6 months ago

Marion, I don't know where you got that info about raw soy beans not being fit for human consumption. I eat them, I put them in stew and chili. As I sit here I am about to go to the kitchen and get my soy burger out of the toastger oven and put in a whole grain bun with some nice onion relish and a slice of tomato from my garden. I will wash it down with a glass of soy milk and I will enjoy it. I have tried the soy wieners, but not liking regular wieners, I did not add them to my shopping list for the future.

beatrice 7 years, 6 months ago

As far as dogs go, I wouldn't want to eat more than two, and usually stop at one. Hebrew National for me -- they answer to a higher authority.

Marion: "Anothe (sic) self-delusion from the Left!"

What does food preference have to do with political leanings? If one is a vegetarian, they must be a Dem, while meat-eaters are Reps? Is that what you are saying? That is just stupid.

Marion, I'm thinking it is time you up the meds.

You are welcome, Bea

Speaking of dogs...was that Marion's drivel up above? I just noticed a bunch of links and CAPITALIZED words. That must mean she has an important point. To bad for her though, it's impossible to get through an entire post without sticking a fork in one's eye.

sgtwolverine 7 years, 6 months ago

gcc, that's sort of an odd distraction more than an argument. I think the point is that the hamburger is widely recognized as a meat product, and the garden burger is an attempt to take that same form without being meat.

Tell me, which part of a cow is hamburger-shaped? Just because ground meat can be pattied doesn't mean that other pattied food items are meatlike.

Being from Michigan, I'm fond of a good coney dog. And they're so cheap at most coney restaurants, too.

I love Hebrew National's slogan: "We answer to a higher authority." Also, I went to a Tigers game last week, and it was fun to hear the Hebrew National vendor wandering around yelling "Kosher hot dogs!" Ball Park Franks were available, too, but I probably would have opted for the HN if I'd gone for a dog at all.

The Denver Buffalo Company serves a buffalo hot dog with buffalo chili. Yummy stuff. Check it out if you are in the downtown area of Denver.

That all depends. Are we talking about hot dogs between buns....or just hot dogs?

I know that there are quite a few people in this world who seem to thoroughly enjoy having hot dogs stuffed between their buns (men and women...but mostly men....or so it would seem).....but, hey!, not me.

So, having said that....if it's just plain hot dogs you're talking about................oh, I don't know.......maybe 1, possibly 2 at the most. Hot dogs are kinda gross, if you ask me.

Mayo? Interesting. Where I'm temporarily living, they're served with mayo, mustard and shredded cabbage. But they also set out some catsup in case the gringos want it.

Sunflower Sue's response is the best so far!

Check out Courtney's answer, though. She "hates" hot dogs but could eat "2 or 3" if she had to? What?! Did I hear that correctly? I'm sorry, honey, but if you could eat 2 or 3, then you don't really hate those wieners. I hate green peppers. I could not choke down one large chunk w/o ..... blowing chunks (to put it delicately).

Courtney, admit it: you'd LIKE to hate hot dogs. You consider them tacky and bourgeois and would never want to admit your secret affinity for them. But if we weren't watching, you'd slather one with mayo and suck it down right now.
