Ok so I got these hotdogs and don’t know what to do with them. First off, they are frozen and have never been thawed so they are still good. Eventually my 11 year old would eat them or his kids would eat them once he grows up and has some so they won’t go to waste. I just hate taking up all that room in my freezer for hotdogs. So I have come up with a few ideas of what to do. Let me just toss them out and let you decide what to do.
First off Thanksgiving is just around the corner and since we are cutting back just like everyone else is (or should be hint hint) I could always serve them for Thanksgiving dinner. At first I had this great idea of blending them up and trying to form them into something that resembled a turkey but after I got that image in my head I got sick to my stomach.
Then I thought about serving them just like they are but the best part of the Thanksgiving dinner is in my opinion the stuffing and I don’t know how to stuff a hot dog. I could always get one of those turkey basters and blend the stuffing into a mush and try to force it inside the dogs. Again this didn’t sound too appealing.
How about something like a standing rib roast but instead of ribs I line the dogs up around a pan and make something creative like that. I can just imagine serving a lovely dish like that to my guests and hearing the applaud as I presented the masterpiece. But what would go with a special entree like this? Perhaps tater tots, Doctor Pepper and Moon Pies. Just another great idea floating around in my head.
Of course there is always po mans surf and turf. You know; fish sticks and hot dogs. Two great treats that go great together. The best thing about this dish is you just have to put one big glob of ketchup in the middle of the plate and you can use it for both dishes. The second great thing about this dish is that you can use your fingers to eat it. No after dinner cleanup if you use paper plates. And rounding out the reasons this dish is so good is you can serve it with French fries and use the ketchup for all three. This is truly finger licking good.
Then I got this crazy idea but it really way out there. I could sell hot dogs at work. No, it’s not for my own profit but to raise money for GNF. That’s Good Neighbor Fund which incidentally I am taking over as of this morning. Last night it dawned on me that the woman who used to head the GNF up at our plant transferred about two months ago. Since she left, no one has stepped up to the plate to take over so I decided to do it myself. And to kick things off, this Friday I will be selling hotdogs to raise money for the charity. What the fund does is raise money and collect toys during the holidays. It is similar to Toys for Tots. Then we include them with Christmas baskets that are handed out in our community.
So which of the above ideas do you all like? If anyone picks the formed turkey you will be obligated to have Thanksgiving dinner at our house and enjoy the meal with us. And yes you WILL have seconds because there won’t be any leftovers.
Have a wonderful day,
