Come sit with me for awhile and see what I’m bringing to the table …

I am sooo busy that I find myself dizzy. Talk about jammed packed event planning commitments. No of course not. Nooooo, no complaints. I am extremely lucky to have me, and my expertise in demand. Well enough of that — moving on.

Hmmm … Chinese New Year … Super Bowl … Valentines Day … and that’s just February … hang on … phew … let me catch my breath. That noise? Lol, that’s just yours truly doing some serious deep breathing —annnnd—exhale. Yes, yes thanks for asking. Okay, I’m good. Now that I am reasonably calm, let’s talk Super Bowl since having already done a blog on Chinese New Year 2019 (×9).

Whether steamed, boiled, broiled or charred, hot dogs will always be one of America’s all-time favorite sports event foods. Now can you really turn down this fun loving Super Bowl Sunday favorite? Of course not. I personally prefer my hot dogs charred. Wait. Hang on there fellow followers. Charred doesn’t mean I would say no to boiled, broiled or steamed.

Okay, now that we are on the same page again let me wrap this up with a few new ideas of how to serve these yummies. Besides the standard bun, I offer you hot dogs in a pita pocket. You know how we all love to load the hot dog bun up with at least one condiment, then add maybe chili, sauerkraut, grilled onions, etc. and then go for that first bite … squishhhhhh, splattt … and there goes half of my favorite add-ons on my lap. Yikes. Well I say try a pita pocket heated on the grill and then fill her up. Oh yesss please.

Wait. You can’t leave without checking out my very tried and true dessert as seen in the second bowl. I fill bowls of what most ice cream sundae lovers yearn for including hot fudge, caramel, homemade whipped cream and enjoy.
