I am officially PO’d! Can you imagine a freaky health foods group demanding the exclusion of Hot Dogs from the menus at America’s ball parks! Well, it is happening. Just because some pale, washed out, meek, wimpy pathetic group of losers thinks the hot dog is bad for you, they think the American Hot Dog should be abolished! Just because these idiots are plagued by panic and guilt, they think the rest of us can’t decide what we should eat. Just because these poor excuses for "healthy Americans" have the opinion no one else in the world is as intelligent or “GREEN” as they are, they need to see to it that we can’t buy hot dogs, or regular light bulbs, or the car of our choice, or …..well, you get it. The list of “endangered” stuff is getting longer and longer! It is disgusting that the State regulated press has taken it upon thenselves to print whatever these nut-jobs have to say.
Yep…it’s true, I am hot under the collar! My blood pressure is soaring, and it isn’t because of beef, pork, coffee, eggs….it is because of IDIOTS! Therefore, I think Idiots should be against the law! They are hurting my health, they are causing me stress, they are ruining my day! Do you think I can find anyone in Washington DC to take up my cause? Hell no, I can’t pay them off! I can’t make big donations to their campaign funds! The world, or at least the United States, would be a better place if these organizations that are attempting to control our lives (the Senate, the Congress, the President and his group of flunkies and czars, and the so called "Press") spent less time controlling us and more time protecting the United States of America. I can guarantee you, America will not go down because of HOTDOGS!

To enforce my stand on the American Hot Dog….here are some 2great recipes for the 4th of July, both using hot dogs !
Just to start off with a BANG…. not only are we using hot dogs, we are battering them and DEEP FAT FRYING them!

Kay’s Corn Dogs

1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon shortening
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
12 skinless frankfurters
cooking oil
mustard to taste

Sift together dry ingredients. Cut in shortening. Combine milk and eggs, beating slightly. Pour into flour mixture. Stir until smooth. For dipping franks, pour batter into tall glass or spread in shallow pan. Add sticks, making a handle, or hold franks with tongs. Coat franks with batter. Drop battered-franks into hot oil, cooking until golden on all sides. Drain, serve hot with mustard.

All you special interests groups, Bite me!!

Now, just for you, straight from this month’s issue of Bon Appétit
Cheddar Dogs with Cider-Braised Leeks and Apples
Leeks and apples simmered in cider add a hint of sweetness—a nice contrast to the sharp melted cheddar. Yield: Makes 6
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter

2 cups (generous) thinly sliced leeks (white and pale green parts only)

1 apple, peeled, cored, diced

1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds

Pinch of ground allspice

Coarse kosher salt

1 1/2 cups hard apple cider or 1 1/4 cups apple cider and 1/4 cup bourbon

6 grilled hot dog buns or brioche-style oblong rolls

Dijon mustard

6 grilled all-beef Frmland Hot Dogs

2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, coarsely grated (1/2 cup packed)
Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add leeks and apple. Cover; cook until tender, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Mix in caraway and allspice; season with coarse salt and pepper. Add hard cider; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, uncovered, until most of liquid is cooked away, about 16 minutes.
Arrange buns or rolls on plates. Spread each with mustard, then top with grilled hot dogs. Sprinkle dogs with cheese and top with leek mixture.
I suspect that one, with butter, hot dogs, cheese and bourbon, just sent some of the wimps to the ER!
Go stock up on All American Hot Dogs, Farmland Foods makes the best! Get ready for a wonderful birthday party for America....who knows, Washington may outlaw such celebrations next! Enjoy it while you can! BUY AMERICAN HOT DOGS! The press tried to destroy the Pork Producers of America by refering to the "swine flu" over and over and over again when in reality, the influenza had nothing to do with the poor little pig! The pig had been removed from the picture years ago.

The American Press is a disgrace! Don't believe a word your hear or read until you check it out!
Okay, I feel a little less PO'd....thanks for listening to me. Enjoy a HOT DOG on the 4th!
