Bad for you

There’s not too much redeeming about a hot dog. They taste great. Or not. A chili dog? Gluten free? Every year at Memorial Day and the start of summer, I try to grill and eat one (or two). I have grilled, fried, George Foreman, microwaved… eaten beef, and all brands and styles in between. Me and hot dogs. I know they are not good for you. The Nathan’s hot dog eating contest on the Fourth of July is famous and televised. It’s complicated. I still eat them. I’ve no plans to quit.

  1. Go the next step. I haven’t eaten one in quite a while, [there is only one private country club here that makes them, and I don’t belong] but I love them: a Texas dog. This is a hot dog split, filled with cheese, wrapped in bacon and deep-fried. It is crispy, delicious and totally un-redeeming for the health conscious.

    • There’s nothing healthy about a hot dog. I’ve been trying to stop for years. … a guilty pleasure…
