“I’ll have the bacon-dog, please and then just drop me off at the hospital.” That’s the only way to order a bacon-wrapped hot dog! Denis and I went to our local street festival yesterday and when I saw this sign, I wondered what the thinking was behind this culinary catastrophe. Let’s see… we know hot dogs are unhealthy, but what can we do to make them do even more damage? Put them in a white bread bun? Done. Dip it in corn batter and fry it? Been there, done that. Here’s an idea. Let’s wrap it in bacon! Genius!
There were a lot of food stands with things like cotton candy, funnel cakes, and even some food trucks. I have to admit the smells at any outdoor festival can be intoxicating. The first thing that wafted my way was caramel corn and then it was barbeque. I decided on barbeque but they ran out so I went with my second choice. Call me a hypocrite because I had a Polish kielbasa dog, and I only have one thing to say: Thie kiełbasy było pyszne! Hey, at least it wasn’t wrapped in bacon!
