Don't get me wrong! I love hot dogs! But only when it is at the local hot dog shop! My favorite is Coney Island. Coney is followed closely by Milwaukee Wiener House. Both of these have been in business for YEARS! Ate at both of them as a kid. Still love to order soda in a bottle with a straw! Ahhh...childhood memories. That reminds me of a sisters Coney Island story! That tangent will have to wait for a later post! I'm a hot dog, mustard, sauerkraut and a FEW onions purist! Chili does NOT belong anywhere in the scope of hot-dog-ness!
Since hubby didn't offer a trip to a one true hot dog shop....I stuck with my salad creation! My salad of mixed greens, baby carrots, orange peppers, shredded Parmesan, cherry tomatoes, a few croutons, some sliced turkey, a little balsamic vinegar mixed with grape seed oil....PERFECTION! Yummy AND photogenic! Hubby has no idea what he missed out on! Notice my lunch location: My Bubble!
