Left to right:  Bam, Kraut and Aretha Franklin Dogs

Last night, Dennis, Kylie and I went to the San Diego Fair for the X-Ambassadors concert.  It was so good!  We decided to have dinner at the fair before the concert.  I am not one to eat all the crazy, high fat, deep fried, high calorie goodies the fair has to offer.  We decided to have a hot dog from Pink’s hot dog stand.  What a good choice!  I was able to get a turkey hot dog and the one I chose was called the Kraut dog.  It was a simple hot dog with mustard, onions and sauerkraut.  Kylie had the Aretha Franklin, which was a beef hot dog with chili, onions and mustard.  Dennis went for the Bam.  He also chose to have a turkey dog as well.  One the Bam was bacon, cheese, coleslaw and jalapenos.  They were all terrific!  Pink’s has many locations and if there is one near you, I highly recommend trying them.

We decided to get a side of homemade potato chips to go with our “dogs”.  Another good choice.  We got the parmessan/garlic chips and also some plain chips and below is a picture of the plain chips.  I may try to make some homemade chips in the near future and blog about how I did it.  Stay tuned ….

After the concert, we (Dennis and Kylie) wanted a little treat.  They decided to go with a donut from Texas Donuts.  They agreed on the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup donut, yum!  I chose to have a cup of decaf coffee.  Boring, I know.  I did give their donut a try and I’m glad I did.  It was really good!

Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
