Well, Groundhog Day to me! I just did this!
Dh went out to put oil in the generator. I knew that he was turning it off, and knew that I couldn't post until it was back on, since I would be disconnected from the internet.
But, I didn't know everything. After the generator went back on, I waited about 2 minutes while I talked to the cats, then posted. Well, thought that I was posting.
Apparently, it takes 10 or more minutes for the internet connection to re-set. Rats! So, here I am, trying again!
Another question in the book that I mentioned on Tea Time, was whether I had slept under the stars as a child, followed by experiences with s'mores, and cooking hot dogs.
That got me thinking about hotdogs and childhood.
We mostly had hotdogs on the bbq, though my dad made burgers and other meats more often; at home, at the park, etc.
We sometimes had them steamed at certain places, maybe a theme park (Disneyland? Sea World?), though again, if we ate there, it was more often burgers.
My maternal grandmother boiled them for my cousins, which I'd never had anywhere else, and they put mayonnaise on them. That was new to me, too. (No, I did not participate. I remember having a salami sandwich, instead.) My paternal grandmother never made them at all.
At home, though I have to stress that we didn't have them often at all, my dad liked them under the broiler, which I like a lot.
I've had them out on a spit, which I do like also. When I have them on a spit, I use far less condiments then usual. Normally, fully loaded is my speed with hotdogs! Regular condiments, chili, onions, sauerkraut, etc. in some combination or other!
How did you get them growing up?
What was your preference on how they were cooked?
And, have your tastes changed from then to now?
