Hot Dog Week is here friends, and we have another THREE recipes this year to get you ready for Memorial Day Weekend! Is it the end of May already? We’re trying to celebrate what we can together this year – because this weekend is a twofer for us. It’s Ben’s birthday along with it being Memorial Weekend. But since he is working this weekend – Boo – we are going to make the most of it on the days he does have off. I’m 110% behind the idea of grilling and cracking a beer, hanging out on the deck and tending my apartment garden.
We might be able to fit a mini-roadtrip in there somewhere, too. And I can’t forget, that I need to bake his birthday cake… like I did last year. Whoops.
His request is simple, and by this stage in our relationship I should just remember to not ask what kind of cake he wants for his birthday – it’s always the same. He is a man of habits and routine afterall. It’s a yellow boxed mix cake with canned chocolate frosting. E.v.e.r.y. Y.e.a.r.
I mean, at least he makes it easy on me. The other part of me wants to do something lik this cake. Or that one. But he is the birthday boy, and he should get what he wants.
Especially since his birthday present is mostly a gift for the both of us. At least, it’s for him, but it will keep me from being whiney so it’s for us, for him, for me.
In the mean time, hot dogs!! This is a gift for everyone! I had this Cuban dog on the list for last year, but never got around to making it, so here it is and it was most definitely worth the wait.
