National Hot Dog Day

Today is National Hot Dog Day. So to celebrate, we had a competition at our house. My husband and my step son each created a hot dog dish

First up is my Husband, he created a Mexican Hot Dog. He has a  black bean salsa on the bottom topped with a hot dog wrapped in bacon and corn tortilla, deep fried.



Second is the dish created by my step son, the Open Face Hot Dog Philly, it had a flat crescent roll on the bottom, and cream cheese mixture with bacon and jalapeno, the hot dog, sauteed pepper and onions, and topped with cheese sauce.




I HAD to pick a favorite, I went for the husband dish, because you had me at deep fried.

Hopefully I will get recipes soon, so you can made these too.
Which one would you pick?

Cheesy Bacon Mashed Potatoes


It was just my son and I for dinner last night, he had requested some cheesy bacon mashed potatoes. This was pretty easy to make. 6 potatoes peeled and diced, boiled until soft. Once drained, I added about 2 T butter and enough milk to make potatoes the consistency I wanted for mashed potatoes. Add about a cup of shredded cheese and chopped bacon. That's it.

The meat dish with it was a concoction of chopped beef, onions, herbs, tomato soup, and sour cream. Both were delicious.
