Hot Dog Quiz

In keeping with our Hot Dog Month celebration, Parade.com has created a hot dog quiz:  Franks in Pop Culture.

Take the quiz here and see how much hot dog knowledge you possess. Do you know as much as you think you do about the importance of franks in our lives?


If not, here’s your chance to expand your mind — hot dog wise, you know.

Enjoy! And don’t be surprised if you find yourself craving a big, juicy beef frank after taking this quiz. I did!

Most Expensive Hot Dogs

If you love hot dogs (and we know you love beef) then these incredibly expensive (yet amazingly tasty) dogs just might be for you!

Take Exhibit A above. It’s a foot long, is infused with 100-year-old cognac and topped with lobster and Kobe beef. It costs $100.

Then there’s a 3/4 pound beef frank with moose cheese from Sweden, bacon and mustard from France. That’ll set you back about $145.

For. One. Hot. Dog.

Check out all the expensive hot dogs here. Maybe it’ll give you ideas for a pricey dog of your own!

Steaks on the Beach

So, my long-awaited package arrived yesterday. I can now cook the things I crave . . .

My order of Vidalia onion steakburgers, all-beef hot dogs and Kansas City strip steaks has arrived! And our vacation spot in Ft. Walton Beach, FL, is the perfect place to enjoy our favorite meals.

Oh, and that’s my son’s service dog — Marley — he goes everywhere with us now. He commandeered his favorite spot the moment we got here and he hasn’t left since. There’s so much to see!

The weather is beautiful, the beach is beautiful and our dinner tonight is going to be heavenly.

Stay tuned for my report on our “Steaks on the Beach.” They’re gonna be fabulous!
